PURPOSE OF PROGRAM REVIEW
 
    The purpose of program review at Brigham Young University–Hawaii is continuous program improvement. BYUH follows an outcomes based review process that allows programs the opportunity to examine themselves closely to learn whether the current stated outcomes and program structure are relevant to and successful at helping students achieve these outcomes. The Program Review Guidelines provide a framework for conducting a thorough, evidence-based analysis of a program in order to understand a program’s strengths, identify key areas of improvement, and create a workable plan for achieving the desired improvements.
 
OVERVIEW OF THE PROGRAM REVIEW PROCESS
 
Program Review is a cyclical process that spans 5-7 years. The steps in this process include:
 
 
         1. Select a program review date
         2. Review documents and plans from the last program review
         3. Recommend reviewers (1 on-campus, 1 on-island, and 1 off-island)
         4. Make a plan, state goals, designate a coordinator. Decide “What do we
             want to get out of this review?"
