Program Review Manual 
(FS 13/14-32/EX approved by the Faculty Senate, November 14, 2013 and approved by the President November 20, 2013.)

Program Review Teams shall have a minimum of three members, all of whom are to be from among the University’s faculty. At least one member is to be from the college of the academic unit under review. An annual pool of faculty members will be recommended by the Faculty Senate to Academic Affairs for potential service as program review team members. 

V. Review Teams

A. Program Review Team Composition. Program review teams shall have a minimum of three members, all of whom are to be from among the University’s faculty. At least one member is to be from the college of the academic unit under review.

B. Selection of Review Teams. An annual pool of faculty members will be recommended by the Faculty Senate to Academic Affairs for potential service as program review team members. In forming program review teams, the Provost or designee will draw from the pool of faculty members recommended by the Faculty Senate. If, in the opinion of the Provost or designee, the pool of faculty members recommended by the Faculty Senate is insufficient for adequate formation of the required number of program review teams, the Provost or designee shall request additional recommendations by the Faculty Senate. Aside from the chair, members of the review team are not provided with compensation.

C. Selection of Team Chairs. Within the Faculty Senate’s pool of potential review team members, a further indication will be made by the Faculty Senate of those faculty members recommended for potential service as program review team chairs, normally in recognition of prior successful service as program review team members. The Program Review Oversight Committee maintains a process of performance review of review team members in order better to identify suitable candidates to serve in the future as review team chairs. Academic Affairs chooses review team chairs from the Faculty Senate’s pool of potential review team chairs. The chair is to be from outside of the college of the academic unit under review. Academic Affairs provides review team chairs with release time or professional development funds.
