Academic Planning, Assessment & Accreditation 

The Office of Academic Planning works in collaboration with academic leaders and faculty across the institution to develop and refine policies and processes to ensure the successful development of new academic programs and revitalization of existing programs.

This collaborative work between Academic Affairs and the Chancellor-led units is based on several goals:

  • Foster communication and transparency across the institution
  • Establish standards for successful programs
  • Facilitate collaboration across Chancellor-Led Units
  • Increase agility and response to opportunities
  • Identify areas that may positively impact reputation and recognition
  • Meet standards for accreditation
  • Ensure program goals and learning outcomes are achieved
  • Identify programs that may need revitalization or sunset
