Program Review

 
 

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

The review process invites constructive feedback and informed perspectives, and, most importantly, generates discussion about current models and best practices in art and design education. At Otis, program reviews are conducted every 8 years and are considered occasions to invite others to consider with us how best to prepare our graduates for the fields (professional and academic) and contexts (economic, social, political, cultural, environmental) of the professional world that they will be entering. The review expects to elicit responses and recommendations that can be used as one part of our ongoing academic planning process wihin the department and, potentially, the College. As such, Program Review serves as an important component in the College’s commitment to sustaining a culture of evidence and seeking continuously to improve.

Use the following guides and forms to prepare for and complete external program review. The Associate Provost for Assessment and Accreditation and the Academic Projects Manager are available to assist you.
