Background

An Academic Review and Planning (ARP) unit profile describes and compares one unit to others at CU-Boulder. The measures used and overall format were specified by the office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Faculty Affairs, which administers the ARP process. Data are compiled, associated with units, and displayed by the institutional analysis area of Planning, Budget, and Analysis (PBA).

The profiles contain information such as counts of faculty and students, faculty salaries, degrees awarded, student credit hours taught, FCQ ratings, research funding, graduation rates, and time to degree.   Sample profile (for Psychology).

Click the "Get list" button above for the list of all units scheduled for ARP in any year, with college, ARP review year, previous review year, and links to the most recent version of the unit profiles and CU-Boulder catalog excerpts.
