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 2022, fall 2022, spring 2023) for the update.

Updates for 2023 are due Friday, June 2. Please submit to Associate Provost Alexandra Socarides .

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.

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).
