Program Review History
In 2004, Wright State University initiated a comprehensive program review process that included combined internal evaluation of academic programs with disciplinary accreditation. . The process was approved by the Undergraduate Curriculum and Policies Committee (UCAPC) and included both a complete program review by all departments in 2004 and established a list of program reviews to be done on a 7 year cycle. The oversight of the program review process was given to the Program Review Committee, a Faculty Senate subcommittee reporting to UCAPC.
In the year 2006-2007, the first group of cyclical reviews were completed and posted to the University website. This process was continued until 2011-2012 when it was suspended as the University underwent the conversion from a quarter to a semester academic calendar. .
In 2013-2014, program review was transformed to align with the generation of the University’s Strategic Plan. .
