Academic Program Review and Discontinuation

Policy number: 
06.029
Policy description: 

The purpose of an academic program review is to improve and maintain robust, high quality academic programs and concentrations that are closely aligned with the UNT mission and strategic goals. Such improvement should occur through a review of departmental activities, identification of effective and ineffective activities, and identification of strategies for improvement of departmental outcomes. The Office of the Provost uses review results to guide university planning, determine program directions, establish objectives, shape institutional goals, and promote institutional effectiveness.
