Program Review IRI collects a variety of data on academic departments and colleges, from enrollments
to faculty load, budget information, and graduates. These data provide the foundation
of UVU’s academic program review process, both for periodic formal reviews (for accreditation
and USHE’s program review process), but also for less formal annual assessment and
strategic planning efforts. Program Feasibility UVU strategically adapts its program offerings to meet regional need. This website
contains data that helps to justify the development of new programs by identifying
labor for need, local supply, and the breadth of offerings provided by other institutions.
These data are intended to support conversations regarding new degrees at all levels.
