Academic Program Review

Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) academic programs will regularly undergo self-study reviews. Programs subject to review are those that have distinct learning outcomes and that have a degree awarded by AUM. Certificate programs are not subject to independent review. Academic programs that coordinate and administer certificate programs should address these within their self-study. The purpose of Academic Program Review is to:

  • Evaluate the alignment of the program mission and goals with the University mission and goals
  • Examine program information and data, including an assessment of the adequacy of resources to evaluate
    • Strengths
    • Areas needing improvement
  • Analyze opportunities and threats
  • Demonstrate the use of data
  • Develop goals for the future

The review will be guided by the Academic Program Review Template (note: not all parts of the Template will apply equally to all programs).
