Per the mandate of the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE), each academic unit is responsible for conducting an internal review of its degree programs once every eight years. For some departments, this review progress may also include accreditation review or other professional credentialing. The current format reflects the Priorities, Quality, and Productivity (PQP) initiative that began in 1991 and represents the review findings that are required by the IBHE. The process is coordinated by the Provost’s Office.
The review process begins in the academic year prior to the review year and takes about a year to complete and is detailed on the Program Review webpage under Academic Affairs.
