Universitywide Program Review: Evolving a Process for Program Improvement and Institutional Planning. Professional File. Number 128, Winter 2012
Nelson, Kristi A.; Nicholas, Mark C.
Association for Institutional Research
The President of the University of Cincinnati charged the Academic Coordinating Committee (ACC), a universitywide governance body, to conduct a comprehensive review of degree programs by designing a process with multiple outcomes: building an academically stronger university; ensuring consistency with the institution's capacity and academic priorities; engaging individual units in a serious and focused examination of program mission, assessment practices, and plans for the future; and setting the stage for short- and long-term institutional planning. This article illustrates how the ACC envisioned, designed, and implemented the review process. It discusses our approach to developing and using a customized technology solution for program review. We believe that our experience and approach is transferable and can inform practices at other institutions. [For "Conducting Focus Groups with College Students: Strategies to Ensure Success.
