Process Maps for External Review

The process maps are designed to clarify the necessary steps involved within the four main stages of the academic external review process. 

All undergraduate and graduate instructional programs administered by an academic unit are subject to periodic review. If an academic unit administers an interdepartmental program or teaches a significant number of service courses for other units, advice from all participating departments and divisions will be sought. The unit under review will produce a self-assessment document that will be considered by the administration and Academic Senate. External scholars in the discipline will visit the campus to discuss the document with the department constituencies. A campus closure meeting and a mid-cycle update are integral components to record and monitor the review outcome.
