Bio/Historical Note:

James Madison University degree-granting programs, departments, centers, and academic administrative areas are reviewed periodically in the form of an Academic Program Review (APR). According to the Academic Affairs website, an APR requires "a clear specification of desired educational outcomes, evidence of achievement, and documentation of strategic planning and its implementation." An APR typically consists of two phases: a self-study conducted by the department faculty, and an evaluation by an external review team. In some cases, external evaluations are conducted by an external agency or professional organization.

Scope and Content:

The collection is comprised of Academic Program Review documentation, including internal self-study reports, evaluations by external teams, internal interim reports, and other documents required for program accreditation. More information about Academic Program Reviews can be found at the Office of the Provost, Academic Affairs website: https://www.jmu.edu/academic-affairs/apr/index.shtml. The collection also includes plans and reports issued by the Division of Academic Affairs.

Documents are arranged into two series.
Series 1. Academic Program Reviews and Self-Studies, 1993-present Series 2. Academic Affairs Plans and Reports, 1985-2007
Series 1 is organized alphabetically by program or department title, and further arranged chronologically. Series 2 is arranged chronologically.
