Program Review



Millersville University conducts program reviews on a five-year cycle with the exception of program accreditations that have alternate calendars.

PASSHE Program Review Policy provides guidance on the program review process.

The program review process includes writing a self-study report that highlights the following: program context, progress on prior program review recommendations, curriculum and student learning, enrollment and student success, resources, and recommendations supported by appropriate evidence.

An external evaluator from outside of the state system, proposed by the department, nominated by the Dean, and approved the Provost, will provide feedback.

Academic departments in consultation with the Dean, will create an updated action plan based on the program review final recommendations. An updated student learning outcomes assessment plan is a second desirable outcome of the program review process.  

Program review process outcomes may be shared with the Millersville University Council of Trustees, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, program accreditors, students, and other stakeholders.
