Program Review

At Andrews University, program review and approval of new programs are under the purview of the Program Development and Review Committee, a sub-committee of the Graduate and Undergraduate Councils.

Program review has several purposes:

• To ensure academic quality and innovation.
• To document the processes by which the program establishes, implements, and measures its objectives, focusing on student learning outcomes.
• To review the market and mission relevance of programs and review their contribution to the portfolio of programs offered.
• To review the relevant departmental/program strategic goals, progress in meeting these goals, and the ways in which the unmet goals can be reached.
• To educate the rest of the Andrews University community about the contributions of the programs to the university and the Seventh-day Adventist church.

When programs undergo substantive curricular changes, or changes in delivery, specific procedures must be followed for approval.  A flowchart has been developed to outline these procedures.  

Departments who are planning new programs, or new concentrations or minors, must submit a formal proposal to the Program Development and Review Committee.  Proposals for new programs are due by October of the year prior to the projected start date.  New online programs or courses must also be approved by the Distance Learning and Technology Committee.  The guidelines and procedures are provided below.
