Academic program review

The dean of a school/college is accountable for program review. The program review process involves an intensive review of degree programs in an academic unit. 

Academic program review will:

  • Describe and reevaluate a unit’s contribution to the university mission and strategic plan, the needs of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and where appropriate, the needs of the profession it serves.
  • Measure and analyze the overall productivity and quality of performance (including teaching, research and scholarship, service, and/or patient care) of a defined unit.
  • Identify existing and potential areas of excellence and distinctiveness.
  • Guide decisions regarding funding, continuation, and improvement.

Program review forms are currently under revision to processes and procedures. If you have questions or you're looking for a form, please call the Office of Academic Affairs at (804) 828-8883.
