Program review is a requirement of the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE). Programs for review include degree programs, certificate programs, centers, and institutes which were approved by the IBHE.
While meeting the requirement of the IBHE, UIC engages in academic program review to build a connection to planning, decision-making, and resource allocation. This connection ensures that the review contributes to the attainment of the program and campus missions. It also makes sure that recommendations for improvement stemming from the review are carried out. The primary purpose of program review at UIC is to assess and strengthen programs. It is driven by UIC’s commitment to fulfill its vision, mission, and strategic goals.
The UIC Program Review Manual provides the information of program review purpose, criteria, elements, schedule, procedures, and components for self-study.
