The “University-Wide Program Review Process” is the topic of today’s [Feb. 16] Faculty Senate Forum, as noted in last week’s CW. It will be held 3-5 p.m. in the Virginia Dare Room, Alumni House. The campus community is invited to attend.
The university is entering into the beginning stages of a university-wide academic program review process.
The purpose of the program review is to position UNCG to be as strong academically as possible while maintaining a sound and balanced educational program that is consistent with the functions and responsibilities of the institution.
This forum, according to info provided by the Faculty Senate, will provide an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to discuss the process with the provost and to provide feedback to the Program Review Process Committee, which is charged with developing a process for this review. Dr. Rebecca Adams, associate provost for planning and assessment, is chairing this committee. Other members are Vice Provost J. Alan Boyette; Dr. Josh Hoffman, chair-elect of the Faculty Senate, Dr. James Petersen, dean of the Graduate School; Dr. Steve Roberson, gean of Undergraduate Studies; Jason Morris, chair of the Staff Senate; SGA President Katie Marshall, and Cynthia Webb, representing Graduate Student Assocation.
In addition to the forum – or if you are unable to attend the forum – you may provide input online through Feb. 21 at http://opa.uncg.edu/programreview/feedback.aspx.
“We welcome suggestions from the university community about how to improve our proposal and to make this process as fair and as effective as possible,” Adams said.
