Program Review and Annual Reports

What is program review?

Program review is the process of continuously evaluating educational programs to provide a comprehensive review of the entire program, and give the departments and programs concrete results for how their educational practices can be improved. This evaluation is conducted through a combination of self-assessment and peer evaluation from reviewers external to the program.

How does CSB/SJU conduct program review?

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University exemplify the ideals of program review by attempting to help align program goals to the learning goals of the institutions as a whole, and making curricular and other co-curricular changes to help improve student learning. Program review allows for specific action plans to be developed that increase the success of students, and the illumination of campus synergy and inclusivity across all aspects of the institutions.

How does the OAAE assist with program review?

The OAAE helps  collaborate with each program to create a working program review schedule and coordinate external visits.
