Co-Curricular Program Review, which mirrors Mason’s Academic Program Review (APR) process, is conducted every seven years. As a five-step process, CCPR typically takes three semesters (from the spring semester of Year 1 to the spring semester of Year 2).
The primary goal of the Co-Curricular Program Review (CCPR) process is to assess co-curricular programs and services, particularly as related to student outcomes and success. As a reflective and evidence-based process, CCPR includes the collection of critical and relevant quantitative and qualitative information that informs and instructs programs and services in their work and mission.
CCPR is supported and guided by assessment experts in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning (OIEP), and the process consists of five phases. An overview of what units can expect over the course of the three semesters is presented in the figure below.
