Academic Program Review
Internal program reviews conducted by the Academic Planning Council (APC) are an integral part of UNO’s assessment and planning processes for the unit, college, and university. Every academic program offered at UNO will be reviewed at least once within a seven-year cycle, with review reports prepared for the Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education (CCPE).
