Review of academic programs at Southwestern is based on the continuous improvement cycle of learning and development.

For programs under review, the process starts with assembling a team and collecting and evaluating an array of information, and ends with action planning based on the team's findings.  While each academic program serves a wide range of students to meet the needs of our complex community in a dynamic social and economic context, the guiding questions in the program review processes can be summarized simply:  What is happening? What does it mean?  Now what?

These resources provide a snapshot summary of what to expect when, and detailed guidance to help the Program Review Team decide the information to include in the review and how to find it.  As no two students are alike, neither are the academic programs here at Southwestern.  Consequently, the detailed information in each review will vary according to the program.
