Academic departments at SUNY Fredonia are required to complete a comprehensive review of their programs every five years; click here to view the schedule. As noted in the SUNY Fredonia Guide for Periodic Evaluation of Academic Programs:
"SUNY 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."
