Be more intentional and data-driven in your academic review process.

With ever increasing pressure to stay relevant, institutions need to be more intentional in how they approach academic program review. It’s essential to integrate the right data for the right reasons in order to close the gap between process and actionable results. A lack of consistent data, metrics, and staff engagement can often cloud results and render the process ineffectual.

Join us for this live webcast to learn:

  • Why and how institutions are changing their academic program review processes
  • How you can start collecting and sharing trustworthy data to support the process
  • How you can approach transforming your academic program review process to support your resource planning decisions

In this session, our expert faculty from University of Denver will explain how they aligned their data, gained the trust of their peers and board members, and transformed the academic program review process into a substantive, strategic conversation.

Who Should Attend

This webcast is valuable to a number of stakeholders interested in optimizing the academic review process including:

  • Academic Leadership such as Provosts who want to make the process more informative, meaningful, and trustworthy in order to improve accountability to their board members.
  • Deans, Chairs and Faculty who want to lead or champion the process and gain insight into how others are doing it at the leadership level.  
  • It may also be useful for Institutional Research professionals who want to be in service of the institution’s data needs and be more strategic in the selection of data they provide.
  • Planning and effectiveness professionals who are looking to improve the institutional as a whole will also benefit from these webcasts.


Our expert instructor, Linda Kosten from DU, will walk attendees through the following considerations:

  1. The Impact of Integrated Academic Program Review

We will set the stage for why and how institutions are changing the academic program review process to be data informed, collaborative and strategic.

  1. The Process of Aligning Data, Gaining Trust, and Speeding Things up

This section will focus on a process for collecting and sharing trustworthy data.  You will hear an example of how University of Denver established their metrics along with key data governance initiatives to make accurate information available to academic leaders.     

  1. The Way Forward to Approach a Similar Initiative on your Campus

You will receive a planning exercise for considerations on your own campus.  This will help you establish your need and approach for transforming your academic program review process to support your resource planning decisions.
