Academic Program Review

Welcome to Academic Program Review

Academic Program Review (APR) is a key part of Lane’s programmatic excellence and continuous improvement. Program reviews are a faculty-led collaboration with administration that engages stakeholders in a five-year continuous improvement cycle. Program review is a primary mechanism to inform institutional planning and resource allocation. The process begins with a self-study and external peer review followed by development, implementation and refinement of an action plan. The full cycle is shown in the graphic above. Click the linked icons below for detailed information and useful resources.
