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.
Programs that are not externally accredited will follow the process outlined in the Program Review Process and Instructions. Please use the Library Support guide to complete the section on Library Resources. The library will prepare the first section of the document for you (see example).
For externally accredited programs, the Dean will determine which of the Program Review Questions have not been covered in the accreditation process, and program faculty will be responsible for answering those questions only. See Program Review Questions for Accredited Programs.
