Program review a systemaDc process of examining the capacity, processes, and outcomes of a degree program or department in order to judge its quality and effecDveness and to support improvement. Historically, program review focused primarily on capacity and research output; more recently, educaDonal outcomes and student success have been included. While student success and assessment of learning at the program level are an important part of program review, they should not be confused with the more encompassing process of program review. 12 4/22/15 CAS Standards 1.  Mission 2.  Program 3.  OrganizaDon and Leadership 4.  Human Resources 5.  Ethics 6.  Law, Policy, and Governance 7.  Diversity, Equity, and Access 8.  InsDtuDonal and External RelaDons 9.  Financial Resources 10. Technology 11. FaciliDes and Equipment 12. Assessment and EvaluaDon 1.  Area Review 1.  Scope 2.  Mission and Values 3.  Unit Review 1.  Self-­‐Study 1.  Unit overview 2.  Stakeholder feedback 3.  Cost analysis 4.  Benchmark 5.  Assessment summary 6.  Unit recommendaDons 7.  Unit MOU 4.  External Review 1.  Off-­‐Site Review 2.  On-­‐Site Review 3.  Report 5.  Unit Self-­‐Studies Summary and Analysis 6.  Area MOU Division of Student Affairs Area and Unit Review Process 13
