Supporting Program Reviews is a major responsibility for institutional research. Knowing how to provide comprehensive datasets to address the many needs of Program Review and how to help faculty use data for improvements remains a challenge. 

In this session, institutional researchers and academic program officers from three institutions and a community college system office will share their approaches and practices in supporting academic Program Review.  They will discuss the challenges faced at their institutions, their approaches to implementing change, and what they have learned along the way. Presenters will also demonstrate the data tools and systems they built to provide timely and accessible Program Review data. Join us for this extraordinary opportunity to view best practices from different institutions and to have meaningful conversations on how institutional researchers can better support academic program review.
