Program Evaluation Team
The Program Review Evaluation Team consists of at least two and up to four members who meet the following criteria:
- At least one faculty member from outside the University, but within the discipline. This individual may be from within or outside Utah or may be part of a professional accreditation team.
- Please see this excellent article from the Chronicle of Higher Education on the selection of an external reviewer.
- A second faculty member from either outside or inside of the university. This is at the program faculty's discretion with approval from the Dean. If the second member of the site visit team is chosen from outside the university, it is highly recommended that the committee include a third, internal faculty member. This individual can provide important institutional context to the outside members.
