Academic Program Review

Academic Program Review Procedures

In accordance with the academic program review (APR) policy of the California State University, the APR procedures are provided for the review of undergraduate, graduate, and post-baccalaureate programs; interdisciplinary programs; honors programs; and general education at CSU Stanislaus.

Academic program review's primary goal is to enhance the quality of academic programs. To achieve this purpose, the APR procedures encourage self-study and planning within programs and strengthen the connections among the strategic plans of the program, the college, and the university. In addition, the essential element of the APR is the identification and assessment of student learning outcomes as a key indicator of program effectiveness. Further, APRs provide information for curricular and budgetary planning decisions at each administrative level.
