  • Program review

    Academic programs at UW-La Crosse undergo an Academic Program Review (APR) on a regular cycle as one component of our commitment to academic excellence. Coordinated by the Faculty Senate's Academic Program Review Committee, the review process provides an opportunity for program faculty to reflect on curriculum, assessment, new initiatives, personnel, and support for achieving the goals of the program.

    Programs that have external accreditation participate in UWL's APR the year following their accreditation review.  Programs without external accreditation participate in the process, which includes an external review, every seven years.  Free standing minor programs go through an abbreviated process every seven years.

    The Academic Program Review Committee is the governance body responsible for maintaining and updating the procedures and criteria used to review academic programs at UWL. The APR Committee is also responsible for scheduling and conducting, in consultation with the Provost/Vice Chancellor, the audit and review of academic programs.

    Academic programs are reviewed according to the Program Review Schedule.
