Program Review

 
 

Program Review is an opportunity for Otis to invite colleagues from peer institutions and relevant professional practices to review and assess the performance and operations of an academic program of the College.

The review process invites constructive feedback, informed perspective, and most importantly, generates discussion about current models and best practices in art and design education. At Otis, program reviews are conducted every 4 years and are occasions to invite others to enter in a dialog to consider how we best prepare our graduates for the fields (professional and academic) and contexts (economic, social, political, cultural, environmental) of the world that they will be entering. The review expects to elicit responses and recommendations that can be used as one part of the ongoing academic planning process in the department and potentially inform the directions and development of the College. As such, the Program Review serves as an important component in the institution’s commitment to working in a culture of evidence and continuous improvement.
