Program Review Panel


California State University, Dominguez Hills is committed to the development and delivery of excellent academic programs that reinforce our position as a comprehensive model urban university. An important element in fostering program excellence and a vigorous university is a policy of regular self-assessment and planning, implementation, and evaluation. Classroom and programmatic change grounded in this policy are the foundation of the review process. Program review includes analyses of the achievement of each program’s learning objectives and outcomes, program retention and completion, and, where appropriate, results of licensing examinations and placement, and evidence from community members such as employers and professional organizations. The policy and procedures described are based on the goals and values that the University believes is consistent with CSU Chancellor’s office requirements and current accreditation.

if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Academic Programs or the PRP Chair, Wendolyn Vermeer via email.
