Academic Program Review 

Academic program reviews are an essential component of institutional and program accreditation processes. Program reviews allow for continuous fostering of academic excellence and quality improvements of academic programs, thereby supporting Winthrop's strategic goal to enhance the quality of the Winthrop experience for all students. The review process ensures that Winthrop University preserves its reputation for crafting and maintaining high-quality academic programs consistent with emerging best practices and affirms that program priorities are aligned with and support the achievement of WU's institutional mission, goals, and strategic priorities. 

Academic program reviews assist in the long-term planning efforts of the faculty, deans, and Provost, as a thorough review identifies a program's comparative advantage within the discipline, its strengths, and its opportunities. In preparing the Self-Study, reviewing data, and examining evidentiary documents, the academic program review affords the program an opportunity to

  • review policies, practices, procedures, and records to improve its operations, 

  • clarify goals, assess goal achievement, review program resources, identify concerns, and suggest potential changes, and

  • articulate its needs and justify its requests for program enhancements.
