Administrative History

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.
