Academic Program Reviews

The purpose of program review at Brigham Young University–Hawaii is continuous program improvement. BYUH follows an outcomes-based review process that allows programs the opportunity to examine themselves closely to learn whether the current stated outcomes and program structure are relevant to and successful at helping students achieve these outcomes. The Program Review Guidelines provide a framework for conducting a thorough, evidence-based analysis of a program in order to understand a program’s strengths, identify key areas of improvement, and create a workable plan for achieving the desired improvements.

Assessment Services attended WSCUC training in April 2023 and with the 2023 WSCUC Handbook update, we changed the program review process to align with the updated 2023 WSCUC standards. We have elected to use the 2023 WSCUC Standards Handbook, WSCUC self-study prompting questions to train our academic and co-curricular programs on the updated program review process. We want to afford programs the opportunity to carry out the self-study process by using the self-study prompting questions and by focusing on the standards. Then they are to generate a report of their findings based off of the self-study process.
