Timely follow-through on the review by the dean(s) and the Office of the Provost is critical to the success of the program review process.
The formal conclusion of the review process is to assemble those who participated in the scope of review meeting (Provost’s designee, dean(s), and unit leadership). Others (such as members of the Provost’s or dean’s leadership teams) may be included in the post-review meeting, as appropriate. The reports generated by the review process will form the basis of the post-review meeting to develop consensus on the necessary next steps for addressing the opportunities and concerns raised by the review. The post-review meeting should be held as quickly as possible, usually within 1-2 months of the Provost’s receipt of the documents generated by the review.
The result of the post-review meeting will be a formal memo from the Provost’s designee that summarizes key aspects of the discussion at the post-review meeting and outlines follow up and continuing discussions on the issues identified. The dean(s) will be responsible for updating the Provost on progress toward the goals identified within the allotted timeframe.
