Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania program review Policies and Procedures are integral to the planning processes of the university, an essential element in determining the centrality of programs to the mission and goals of the university, and represent one way the university continually improves its programs.
The review process is designed to generate specific, detailed information about programs. The primary outcome should be a clear view of the program's viability. This occurs from a thorough analysis of the program by the staff and faculty in the program. The self-study is validated by professional colleagues who assess the current strengths and opportunities to enhance the quality of the program.
A product of the review process is a plan of action with designed strategies to address the needs of the program within the next five years. This plan becomes a major part of the university strategic planning process. The program review results are part of the performance funding for the department or unit and a method for identifying "Programs of Merit" for special recognition for the university.
