Following the on-campus visit, the Review Committee prepares a written report (usually within four to six weeks) and submits it to the Dean for Academic Affairs. The associate dean checks the report for completeness and shares the final report with the president and the department/program (usually within two weeks). The department/program meets to discuss the report’s findings and formulate a response. A written response is submitted to the Dean for Academic Affairs (normally within one month).  Finally, the report and the written response form the focus of at least one meeting between the dean, associate deans and the department/program faculty to discuss the report and its implications (normally within six months of the campus visit).  Departments/programs and the Office of the Dean for Academic Affairs will maintain an archive of the reports that serve as formal records for College planning. This is an important record that will guide and inform future decisions about the department/program, its curriculum, and its staffing.
