SCEP Program Review Council
Since Fall 2015, a subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP) supported the internal review of degree programs and IBHE certificate programs as part of the campus wide academic program review process. In Spring 2023, SCEP approved a new Program Review Council (PRC), which is still affiliated with SCEP, to operate in this capacity effective Fall 2023.
The SCEP PRC consists of senate-eligible representatives from all colleges except the Honors College. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has two representatives on the Council, and each of the other 14 colleges have one representative.
Faculty serving on the SCEP Program Review Council will be expected to conduct informed evaluations of academic programs by:
- Attending Council meetings (about 6-8 meetings annually);
- Preparing for Council meetings by reading self-study reports (about 30 pages plus appendices), external review team reports (about 10 pages), and unit response reports (about 5 pages) related to each program review;
- Providing feedback and recommendations to programs regarding strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement. Feedback should address the program’s: mission; facilities and resources; curriculum and instruction; assessment and evaluation; faculty composition and associated research / intellectual focus; student composition, experiences, outcomes, and associated support; and strategic opportunities and plans for improvement.
