Program Review

Program review, through which departments engage in formal and systematic self-study and self-improvement, is an essential part of SFCM's assessment process. Program review is designed to yield new departmental initiatives, enlightening discussions, inspired curricula, and stronger departments. This process is led by department chairs or program leaders, in close consultation with the Dean and the Accreditation Liaison Officer, with the aim of completing 2-3 reviews every academic year.
