The Institutional Program Review Committee (IPRC) recognizes the need for a process that encourages meaningful review of relevant data that appropriately reflects program/unit performance along with stated standards and encourages robust planning to improve, expand, and/or maintain programs/units.
IPRC is responsible for formulating and recommending to the appropriate committees any policies and procedures related to the Program Review and Planning process and its associated standards, in cooperation with other governance committees (as required), and for ensuring incorporation of student learning and service outcomes assessment into the institutional Program Review and Planning process. IPRC is also responsible for assisting in the execution of the Program Review and Planning process, supporting the quality of program/unit reviews, regularly assessing the effectiveness of this process, and seeking feedback to ensure that the process supports programs/units and meets the rigor of accreditation standards.
