Program Review at the University of Northern Colorado
Program review at the University of Northern Colorado supports, develops, and maintains high quality academic, student services, and co-curricular programs. It is a collaborative process involving faculty, staff, administrators, and students that respects the diversity of program missions and cultures while also recognizing the primacy of institutional mission. Program review outcomes are used by faculty, staff, and administrators to promote campus goals and objectives, support strategic planning and decision-making, and inform budget and resource allocation.
All academic, student services, and co-curricular programs within the division of Academic Affairs complete a comprehensive review at least once every ten years. The review process includes an extensive self-study, examination of relevant program data for benchmarking progress, and assessment of student learning outcomes. A key component of program review at UNC is a focus on using the results to establish specific program goals for the next review period and identifying the resources necessary to accomplish these goals.
