Co-curricular programs are reviewed on a five-year cycle. Reviews consist of a self-study, internal review, and an action plan. An additional external review may be requested by the co-curricular director or the supervising vice president or dean.
Co-curricular Program Review Schedule
In developing the specific program review schedule, the assessment committee considers potential for synergies in particular departments or programs. These synergies might be due to similar or overlapping involvement in offering co-curricular programs; or, alternatively, synergies might be due to interdisciplinary activities that create logical connections and support concurrent program review.
The co-curricular program review process generally takes place within one academic year. Specific timelines for completing the co-curricular review process may vary by area. However, each review must include:
- Self-study by co-curricular director or team.
- Review by internal committee.
- Action plan developed in collaboration with supervising vice president or dean.
If an external review is requested, co-curricular directors are responsible for identifying external reviewers with expertise in the area. Reviewers are asked to review the self-study, internal review, and supporting assessment documents, meet with GC staff, and submit an assessment to the supervising vice president or dean and Director of Assessment.
