Academic Program Review

Academic Program Review (APR) is the process by which all of OHSU degree and certificate programs are reviewed for academic quality and effectiveness. The reviews are conducted by the APR Committee in accordance with OHSU's Academic Program Review Policy, which was developed in 2010.

Every five years, academic degree and certificate programs are required to complete and submit a program self-study to the APR Committee. The APR Committee is comprised of a minimum of nine faculty members with representation from each school at OHSU. APR Committee members are nominated by their school to a three year term. The appointment is endorsed by the APR Committee Chair and Office of the Provost. All nominations are confirmed by the OHSU Faculty Senate. The APR Committee meets at least twice each academic year to evaluate general findings of the APR Review Teams and to discuss committee business. Review Teams meet each Fall and Winter term to conduct a review of the scheduled academic programs.

To facilitate the program review process, the Office of the Provost has created a series of documents to educate stakeholders about review process and provide time-saving resources.

In preparation for the Five-year Academic Program Review, programs will utilize the APR Form to complete the program self-study. The APR Form is a Word Document and programs are welcome to submit the report as a Word document or a PDF.

In addition to the APR Form, the Academic Program Review Committee requires the completion of two additional tables containing faculty data:

After the 5-Year Report is complete, please email the document to the Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation as an attachment and include all supplemental information, such as Forms I, and II. Please label all attachments clearly.
