4.0. COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM REVIEW

4.1 The degree-granting program or academic support unit shall address the components of program review according to the guidelines in the CSULB Curriculum Handbook. These include: the proposal; the self-study; the review; the University Program Review Committee report; the memorandum of understanding; and the annual report.

4.2 For programs or units with nationally recognized accreditation, documents prepared for accreditation, visits from the accreditation body, and reports from the accreditation body shall normally be accepted as satisfying these components in whole or in part, as stipulated in this policy.

There are six major components of program review: the proposal; the self-study; the review; the University Program Review Committee report; the memorandum of understanding (MOU); and the annual report. These components are described below and examples are provided in the Appendix.

Each year in the Spring, the appropriate administrator in the Office of the Provost will conduct a workshop for programs and units that will be writing their self-study and/or undergoing program review in the following academic year.
