In accordance with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education
Board of Governors’ Policy 1986-04-A, all programs at IUP not holding specialized accreditation are required to conduct a full program review every five years. To assist programs in this process, IUP has developed
Procedures for the Review of Academic Programs.
Programs should regularly check the
Schedule of Program Reviews to find out when their next review will take place.
Each March, the Provost’s Associate’s Office hosts a mandatory workshop for programs undergoing review in the next two academic years. The PowerPoint presentation and handouts utilized at the spring 2017 workshop will be made available the week of March 27, 2017.
To develop the program review, the review team should start by selecting the appropriate template from the two State System-designed templates below.
Academic Program Review Summary Form: This form should be selected and used for academic program reviews. (available soon)
Academic and Student-Support Program Review Summary Form: This form should be selected and used by non-degree-granting units.
The following documents are to assist programs and external reviewers with the external review process.
External Evaluator Site Visit Process: This document outlines the responsibilities of the program with scheduling their external evaluator.
Best Practices for Outside Reviewers: This document provides recommendations to external reviewers on how to structure their review. It is the responsibility of the program to ensure the evaluator receives this document.
