Each institution within the university system is required by the Bylaws of the Board of Regents and by Legislative Bill 663
to periodically review all academic programs.
The purpose of the Review Team is to consider the role of the program in the university environment, in addition to an
assessment of the program quality. The Review Team integrates external peers with faculty and other representatives,
such as members of industry, alumni, and staff, to provide the broad perspective required. The Review Team will submit
a final report within 30 days of the site visit. The report should be factual and explicit. All review teams are asked to
relate their comments to the program or college strategic plans and to the core values of the university. The Review
Team is asked to keep in mind that many recommendations that would improve a given program might not be feasible
because of the expense involved and the requirements of other programs within the university. The team is, therefore,
encouraged to: 1) focus their recommendation on what can and should be done within existing resources, and 2) make
one or two suggestions for new investment that would have the greatest impact on program quality.
