Program Performance Review
Program Performance Reviews (PPR) are to be conducted at least once every seven years for all academic departments and programs within the Division of Academic Affairs. The main purpose of these reviews is to serve both as reflective assessments and forward-looking evidence-based planning tool that can guide the unit’s strategic actions and strengthen its capacity to effect program improvements.
In addition, increasingly the assessment of student learning outcomes and the documentation of student academic achievement is of paramount importance in determining departmental effectiveness. For more than a decade, the content and tone of the PPR’s has transformed from “brag sheets” and massive compendia of individual and collective accomplishments to more concise, action-oriented reviews and plans. In that spirit, departments and programs are encouraged to stay within 25 pages in length for the PPR (excluding appendices).
