Program Review Committee



The Program Review Committee (PRC) will not be convening during the 20-21 AY due to its participation in the Academic Program Portfolio Review (APPR). All proposals will be deferred until after the APPR process has been concluded. More information regarding the APPR process can be found here. Program proposals will only be reviewed under very limited special circumstances. If your proposal falls into one of the four following categories, it may be possible for the PRC to review your proposal:

  • Reviews of programs necessary for compliance with external accreditation policies; 
  • New program proposals warranting an extraordinary opportunity to develop a program; 
  • Program revisions necessary to the continued licensure, certification and/or authorization of graduating students;
  • Program suspension and/or termination proposals. 

If your program proposal meets any of the above criteria, please contact the PRC for further information on how to submit your proposal for review. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact John Fleming (Academic Affairs Program Manager) at
