Academic Program Review
A. The institutions shall conduct a review of all academic programs on a seven-year cycle and shall provide the Board Office with an annual list of programs reviewed. Newly initiated programs will need to demonstrate that the program has met the goals and objectives for the program at the time that it was initially proposed. A one-page report on each program reviewed shall be provided to the Board Office in a format developed by the Board Office (Form B).
B. The Board Office shall prepare an annual report to the Board with emphasis on exemplary or particularly noteworthy features of the academic program review.
C. The Board Office
shall periodically and selectively identify programs from the reports
submitted by the institutions to be audited on site. The following are
examples of programs that might be audited - (a) newly initiated programs,
(b) programs with negative review recommendations and (c) those with
significant enrollment declines. The Board Office shall determine if any
matters resulting from the audits need Board action and place them on the
agenda of the Board of Regentsí Education and Student Affairs Committee.
