The Program Review process at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside is an important peer review process that supports UW-Parkside's goals of transparency, integrity, and planning. In addition, as a member institution of the University of Wisconsin System, UW-Parkside is required to perform program review of its majors, at the undergraduate and graduate level, every seven years.
UW-Parkside academic programs that are accredited through a professional accreditation organization (e.g., NCATE, AACSB), may use the self study document(s) from their most recent accreditation visit as the basis for the self-study for their program review. However, it is the responsibility of the program to determine what questions required by UW-Parkside's program review process (presented in the program review template) are NOT answered in the accreditation report and to provide answers to those questions, including addressing any significant changes in the program that have taken place since the last professional accreditation review.
Since many accreditors encourage online presentation of documentation, accreditation reports may be made available to the Committee for Academic Planning (CAP) in digital format.
