Three-Year Program Review Reports
Every new degree program in the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) must complete this report in December of the third Fall semester students have been enrolled in the program. The Director of Curriculum will notify program directors in January of the year in which their reports are due.
The intent of the report is to present an overview of what is working, what is not, and what is being done to address deficiencies. The report has two major steps. First, use the template to gather the needed information and assessment results and create a written report addressing each section; and second, transfer a synthesis of pertinent information from the written report to the USHE form.
When completed and approved by the Dean, both the written report and the USHE form are electronically submitted to the Director of Curriculum, and the USHE form goes through an approval process that includes Academic Council and the Board of Trustees. Upon approval, the from is then submitted to USHE. After the 3rd Year Report is completed, a new program is not singled out again for reporting purposes. Rather, it is included in the annual and 7-year departmental reporting cycles thereafter
