The Academic Review and Planning (ARP) process was initiated fall 2008, replacing the Program Review Panel (PRP) process. ARP uses standard "unit profiles" produced by ODA for units undergoing review in any year of the ARP cycle.
An Academic Review and Planning (ARP) unit profile compiles information on various topic areas in a single document for use by unit leads. These profiles also contain both comparisons to other units within a review cycle and across all units participating in the Academic Review and Planning process. 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 Research (IR) area of Office of Data Analytics (ODA).
The profiles contain information on counts of faculty and students, average faculty salaries, number of degrees awarded, student credit hours taught, FCQ ratings, research funding, graduation rates, and time to degree.
See in below expansion 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.
