• Academic Program Review (2009-2011)

    In order to ensure that our academic programs remain strong, Hamline University periodically engages in analogous reviews of all our existing academic programs. This was the purpose of the recently-concluded two-phase academic program review. The completed academic program review final report was presented to the Academic and Student Affairs Committee of the Board of Trustees on October 31, 2011 and to the full Board of Trustees on November 18, 2011.  The meeting found the board in full agreement with the recommendations contained within the report.  Click here to download the report (password required)

    Phase I was an abbreviated review of all of our academic degree programs and the teaching licensure programs.

    Phase II was a more comprehensive review of selected programs. This phase  incorporated additional, more differentiated questions about the distinctive nature and quality of the programs under review. In order to arrive a fully informed recommendations, the challenges each program faced, and the local and/or national trends in the field were also examined.

    These web pages were established in the interests of providing full transparency during both phases of the academic program review process. Using the password-protected pages, faculty members can access information on the process, timelines, and data gathered on all programs reviewed at the two stages of the review.

    You are welcome to email Jeannine Kessler at jkessler02@hamline.edu, Director for Planning and Administration for Academic and Student Affairs, with comments or questions regarding the process.
