2016-17 Academic Program Review results

Jan 19, 2018

Academic Program review is part of Pacific's ongoing commitment to academic excellence. This process provides a regular opportunity for programs to engage in a systematic self-examination aimed at improving student learning and program quality. Programs are reviewed every seven years and the process usually includes a self-study, external review and the process culminates in an action plan developed in collaboration with the academic unit, the Dean and the Provost. During the 2016-2017 cycle, six programs completed program review. Below is a summary of the results. The complete report is available here (Pacific login required).
