Academic departments at Fredonia are required to complete a comprehensive review of their programs every five years; click here to view the schedule. As noted in the State University of New York at Fredonia Guide for Periodic Evaluation of Academic Programs:
"Fredonia is committed to providing excellence in education. To this end, the Faculty,
both as individual educators and corporately as members of departments/schools, is
continually evaluating their programs as part of an ongoing review of their effectiveness
in delivering the best educational opportunities for our students. As an integral
part of this process, each department/school takes the opportunity every five years
to reflect on the current state of its programs. In cooperation with Administration,
and with the aid of colleagues from other, sister institutions, the department/school
assesses the strengths and challenges of its programs, and engages in long-term planning
on their future. Together with Administration, they formulate an action plan designed
to improve program effectiveness, with the commitment of the necessary resources as
budgetary constraints will allow, and in congruence with University strategic planning.
A summary report of the findings and actions of this periodic review is presented
to the University Senate."
