Academic Program Review Funding

VPAA currently provides up to $2,500 to each program undergoing academic program review (APR) to cover costs associated with writing the self-study. This will either be used by the department to backfill faculty in the classroom using the faculty buyout process, or may include hiring academic year (AY) faculty off-contract (during the summer break), or to pay for student assistants or other non-12-month staff to assist with preparing the APR. Twelve-month chairs/faculty are not paid additional salary for preparing the APR.

Chairs submit funding proposals to Bill Loker, Dean of Undergraduate Education for undergraduate programs, and/or Sharon Barrios, Interim Dean of Graduate Studies for graduate programs. They review proposals and contact VPAA when funding is approved. Please contact Kim Williams at x6560 or kwilliams@csuchico.edu for more information.

VPAA also provides up to $1,000 toward external reviewer services and travel. Please complete the reimbursement form for external reviewer funding.
