In AY 2012 – 2013 the University Senate Executive Committee and Provost Palm convened an Ad Hoc Committee to review and revitalize the GSU APR process. The committee’s recommendations were approved by the Committee on Academic Programs and then by the full University Senate at its meeting on October 10, 2014.

Academic Program Review requires Deans’ participation at multiple stages: development and approval of the unit’s self-study, external review, and development and implementation of the unit’s action plan.  The tabs on this page provide guidelines and templates to enable Deans to meet their responsibilities at each stage.

If you have questions about the process please contact John Duffield, Director of Assessment and Review, by email at or by phone at 404-413-2615.
