Unit Review Process

 The purpose of an academic unit review is to assess the quality and effectiveness of that unit, to potentially modify the unit because of the review, and to provide benchmarks for additional planning and assessment. As such, unit reviews are a critical element in assessment and strategic planning. Unit reviews consist of development of a self-study that is reviewed by the college dean and the Provost, a possible visit by an external reviewer (determined in consultation with the college dean and the Provost), a unit action plan and the Provost's response. Units that are accredited are encouraged to use evidence from the accreditation process as appropriate, but accreditation does not take the place of the unit review process.
