W. Va. Code R. § 135-10-5 - Possible Outcomes

Current through Register Vol. XXXIX, No. 11, March 18, 2022

5.1. Institutional Recommendation - The appropriate Board of Governors' five-year cycle of program review will result in a recommendation by the institution for action relative to each program under review. The institution is clearly obligated to recommend continuation or discontinuation for each program reviewed. If recommending continuation, the institution should state what it intends:
5.1.1. Continuation of the program at the current level of activity, with or without specific action;
5.1.2. Continuation of the program at a reduced level of activity (e.g., reducing the range of optional tracks) or other corrective action.
5.1.3. Identification of the program for further development; or
5.1.4. Development of a cooperative program with another institution, or sharing of courses, facilities, faculty, and the like.
5.1.5. If it recommends discontinuance of the program, then the provisions of Council policy on approval and discontinuance of academic programs will apply.
5.1.6. For each program, the institution will provide a brief rationale for the observations, evaluation, and recommendation. These should include concerns and achievements of the program. The institution will also make all supporting documentation available to the Council upon request.
5.2. Committee Recommendation - The appropriate Institutional Program Review Committee will develop a recommendation for action and present it to the institutional Board of Governors for action and referral to the Council.
5.2.1. The committee may make recommendations that go beyond those also. The committee may request additional information and may recommend continuance on a provisional basis and request progress reports.
5.3. Appeals Committee and the Appeals Process - Any disagreement between a final recommendation of the Institutional Program Review Committee and the recommendation of the academic unit may be appealed to an institutional Program Review Appeals Committee.
