Department Review

The purposes of the Marylhurst department review process are to ensure that our academic programs are of high and/or continuing quality; to perpetuate a culture of continuous improvement; to support a culture of peer collaboration, feedback and organizational learning; and to provide for planning that aligns with the university's strategic planning and budgeting process.

Our department review process takes place over six years, each of which focuses on a different aspect of academic quality:

Year 1 - Overview of Department
Year 2 - Student Learning
Year 3 - Instruction/Faculty
Year 4 - Student Experience
Year 5 - Curriculum
Year 6 - Summative Analytical Report

The intended outcome of the six-year process is to provide analysis about our academic programs' strengths, areas for improvement and future opportunities.

This ongoing self-study process is sustained by the Office of Academic Affairs and supports departments in the continuous improvement of their academic programs, including but not limited to: regular review/revision of academic programs using student and employer survey data; evaluation of the department's alignment with the university's mission and vision; identification of strengths and needs in the area of faculty development; and the program's sincere engagement in assessment of learning outcomes.
