Thirty Years of Academic Review and Approval

Thirty Years of Academic Review and Approval by State Postsecondary Coordinating and Governing Boards

A survey of the academic program review and approval activity of state-wide postsecondary coordinating and governing boards was concluded in 2006. This study is the latest in a series of survey/studies of state level program review and approval begun roughly thirty years ago by this author and colleagues.  The boards selected for this survey were all members of the State Higher Education Executive Officers organization known as SHEEO. The author gratefully acknowledges the continued participation of the SHEEO and their staffs who exercise responsibility for academic program review and approval within their respective states, and to the SHEEO organizational staff for their generous assistance with these surveys.
