Periodic Academic Program Review (PAPR)
Periodic Academic Program Review (PAPR) is designed to strengthen Suffolk University’s academic activities, and to align them with the mission and strategic goals of the University, the schools, and their academic departments and programs. It is a developmental process that consists of a set of well-defined procedures created to assist in determining an academic unit’s ability to respond to challenges and opportunities, evaluate current strengths and opportunities, set priorities, and aid in shaping plans for the future of the academic unit. Each academic program at the University, regardless of the school in which they are situated, shall be formally reviewed on a regular cycle. Programs shall generally be reviewed on a five-year cycle as reflected in the PAPR schedule.
