Academic Program Review

Welcome to Academic Program Review

Academic Program Review (APR) is a key part of Lane’s programmatic excellence and continuous improvement process and a primary mechanism for institutional planning and resource allocation. Program Review is an inquiry-based, faculty-led collaboration with administration and engages each field of study or CTE program in a six-year* continuous improvement cycle. The process begins with a self-study and external peer review followed by development and implementation of an action plan with a mid-cycle check-in for adjustments and refinements. The full cycle is shown in the graphic below. Click the linked icons for detailed information and useful resources.

*For CTE programs, the six-year process also will involve several shorter cyclical reporting requirements. Stay tuned for more information on the 2021-22 refinements and updates to the Academic Program Review.
