Academic Program Review

The University of Illinois Academic Program Review Process will provide each academic unit with the opportunity to examine its strengths, deficiencies, and strategic goals in a systematic way.

Evaluation of programs is conducted through a self-study process, culminating in an external peer review.

The Program Review process aligns with the campus strategic goal of ensuring excellence in the academic programs, allowing the university to:

  • Guide the future direction and priorities for the programs and the institution
  • Identify areas for improvement and development
  • Promote goal setting within the departments as well as across departments
  • Identify potential opportunities to redirect existing resources
  • Identify potential opportunities to generate and use incremental resources
  • Fulfill accreditation and state requirements
  • Ensure institutional quality to students, faculty, parents, alumni, and other stakeholders
