Academic Program Review Committee

Thank you...

...for your patience while the Learning Outcomes Assessment Committee and the Academic Program Review Committee transition to a new committee called the Program-Based Review and Assessment Committee.


(Formerly the Internal Quality Assessment Committee)

The committee is composed of faculty from the three disciplines: Arts and Sciences, Business and Technology and Health and Rehabilitative Sciences.

The Academic Program Review process is intended to assist each academic program to identify goals, examine strengths, identify areas of concern and ultimately to implement change which will will be beneficial to both the program and the Community College of Rhode Island as a whole.

The purpose of the Academic Program Review Committee is to review and analyze an academic program's Program Review Report. The committee meets with the department members who discuss the report.  Final comments are submitted by participating members to the chair of the committee.  The chair reviews all final reports. A summary with recommendations and concerns is sent to the President, Vice President for Academic Affairs, appropriate Academic Dean and Department Chairperson.

During an academic year, the Academic Program Review Committee evaluates four to six programs.  Academic departments are required to go through the process every three to five years.
