Annual Updates

As part of the Program Assessment Cycle, programs are to provide an annual update to the Provost’s office regarding their progress, successes and challenges. The following template can be used to provide this update. Suggested length of the annual update is 2-3 pages. Please use the time frame of the past year (summer, fall, current spring semester) for the update.

Part 1:

Identify noteworthy accomplishments the program has achieved in the past year.

Part 2:

Review progress toward goals and strategies identified in the Program Assessment report, including unanticipated challenges toward achieving program goals. Also note any changes in program goals and strategies and, where appropriate, their impact on student learning. Please be sure to consult the program’s data in the Research and Teaching Overview report.

Part 3:

Briefly note how you are collecting data to assess and/or improve your student learning objectives. This information is critical to our institutional accreditation process.

Part 4:

Please provide the names, contact information, and current positions (if known) of doctoral graduates during the past year (summer, fall, current spring semester graduates). Also, indicate any national awards that your faculty has won.

2022 Annual updates are due Monday, June 6. Please submit to Associate Provost Alex Socarides.
