Comprehensive Standard 3.4.11

Comprehensive Standard 3.4.11

Comprehensive Standard 3.4.11

For each major in a degree program, the institution assigns responsibility for program coordination, as well as for curriculum development and review, to persons academically qualified in the field. In those degree programs for which the institution does not identify a major, this requirement applies to a curricular area or concentration.

_X_ Compliance                     ___ Non-Compliance

Narrative
McNeese State University seeks to maintain the highest academic program quality and ensures each program meets stated objectives and student learning outcomes in a variety of ways. First, Academic Program Review (APR) is conducted to ensure that academic excellence and appropriate student achievement and success is maintained for each program offered. Second, programs accredited by professional accrediting agencies undergo thorough self-evaluation and external review periodically as required by the respective accrediting agencies. Last, programs that are not professionally accredited or for which there is no professional accrediting agency conduct periodic self-evaluation and review according to University policy.
 
The purpose of each type of academic program review is to take a comprehensive look at an academic program from the perspective of self-assessment, viability, needs, student learning outcomes, and adequacy of resources (funding, personnel, facilities, etc.). The process is intended to identify opportunities, understand weaknesses, and set a path for future improvements. The culmination of the review should produce a portfolio that is evaluative rather than merely descriptive. A program review should reflect the past and anticipate the future.
To ensure that all degree programs are in compliance, the University assigns responsibility for program coordination, curriculum development, review, and oversight to persons academically qualified in the field.  This designated faculty person is referred to as a program coordinator.  

Program Coordinators
Undergraduate programs which lead to both associate and bachelor's degrees are coordinated by academically qualified faculty members as are graduate programs leading to Master's and Specialist's degrees. The table of  program coordinators provided as supporting documentation identifies program coordinators for each undergraduate and graduate program of study. Credentials for these coordinators can be accessed by reviewing the faculty roster and are noted in Table 1. The duties of a program coordinator are identified in the Faculty/Staff Handbook (see Responsibilities of Academic Staff).  Program coordinators are responsible for coordination, curriculum development, and program review for specific degree plans.  A "field" refers to the degree program under review at the graduate or undergraduate level. Program coordinators are academically qualified in the field of the degree program.

Curriculum Vitae

 

Specific responsibilities of the program coordinator include: annual review of program against appropriate standards including those of professional agencies, discipline-specific standards, general education competencies, if course appropriate, and/or peer institutions;  annual program assessment and evaluation as part of the University's master plan and progress report process; and periodic research, analysis, and evaluation of the academic program and collaboration with program faculty for the purpose of professional accreditation or re-accreditation and/or external review as required by McNeese's five-year cycle.

Program coordinators, department heads, and faculty periodically develop, review, and revise curricula in order to keep abreast of current theories and pedagogies and refine curricula to address changes within the disciplines and to meet the needs of the students, the community, and the workplace. From the Specialized Professional Associations (SPAs) to individual departments and programs, this process is designed to safeguard program integrity. Through careful curriculum development and periodic reviews and revisions, program coordinators and faculty design curricula and strategies for the delivery of instruction that are educationally sound. However, ultimate responsibility for academic programs lies with the Provost and Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, whose oversight of such programs ensures compliance with standards established by professional accrediting agencies, learned societies, in-house program reviews, and Louisiana governing boards of higher education.

Program Coordinators and Evaluation of Existing Programs
Evaluation and revision of existing programs is conducted annually (see 3.3.1.1). Each academic department and program examines student learning outcomes, student evaluation of instruction, graduation rates, student opinion surveys, and other appropriate information to determine the efficacy of the department and the program. Based on analysis of these and other data, faculty members, program coordinators, department heads, and deans determine what, if any, kinds of improvements or changes are appropriate. Program coordinators, departmental faculty, and department heads devote considerable time and energy to periodic program reviews.
 
Internet or Web-Based Courses
Regardless of the method of course delivery - traditional or alternative - programs are developed, evaluated, and coordinated by appropriate, qualified faculty and chaired by a program coordinator. However, to ensure that Web-based courses are effective and meet the educational goals of the University, faculty delivering instruction using this medium are required to adhere to additional guidelines established by the Online Course Policy.
