Mission Statement:

Academic Program Review (APR) at UNM supports and advances the mission of the university through providing a mechanism for academic programs to examine their achievements, goals, and strategic plans for the future. Within this context, the APR office's primary purpose is to assist academic programs through the process of preparing a unit self-study, organizing and preparing for a site visit from a review team, and engaging in action planning for the future. 

The APR Process

The APR process is necessary for the university’s accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association in order to satisfy accreditation criteria. The organization’s ongoing evaluation and assessment processes provide reliable evidence of institutional effectiveness that clearly informs strategies for continuous improvement.
