Academic Program Reviews   

The academic program review is a process that ensures each degree program at AUC undergoes a comprehensive cyclic process of assessment of quality, potential, and sustainability for the purpose of enhancing academic quality and students’ experience, and ensuring resources are used efficiently and allocated to support AUC’s mission and strategic plan. The academic program review generates in-depth communication between the academic departments and the university administration which can be a central mechanism for advancing the university mission, setting priorities, allocating resources, and identifying future areas of potential growth. The review plan can also be used to enhance the process of evaluating the feasibility of new programs by learning the key determinants of a successful program that provides an intellectually stimulating and enriching learning experience to students and is in line with AUC’s mission.  For the full academic program review process, click here.
