Reports and Reviews for Units, Centers and Institutes

Academic Units

Each academic unit prepares an annual report reviewed during the spring in a budget and planning session with the Executive Council. The annual academic unit review sessions are held with the Executive Council in February, March and April. Contact: Sylvia Ramirez, sramirez@email.arizona.edu, 520-621-0094

Per UHAP Policy 2-225, each academic unit also undergoes an academic program review by the university at least once every seven years. The purpose of the APR is to examine, assess, and strengthen programs. The Office of Academic Affairs provides an APR manual, the current seven-year schedule and sample self-study reports on their Academic Program Review website.

Centers & Institutes

  • College research centers and institutes have periodic reviews before seeking reauthorization.
  • Those university-wide research centers and institutes overseen directly by Research, Discovery & Innovation also undertake periodic reviews before seeking reauthorization. RDI's guidance for both types of reviews are provided here - https://research.arizona.edu/research-centers-and-institutes.
