 Academic Program Review

The purpose of Academic Program Review (APR) is to ensure that Winthrop University continues a leadership role in offering national-caliber academic programs consistent with emerging best practices.  Winthrop University's APR website provides guidelines that were adopted in 2007 and updated in 2011, information on roles and responsibilities, the stages of APR, and Winthrop's APR schedule for future and previous years. The Fall 2007 (Number 105) Association of Institutional Research (AIR) Professional File is the basis for Winthrop's general guidelines for academic program review.
