Late last week, the Ohio Board of Regents (OBR) posted the proposed Guidelines & Procedures for Academic Program Review. According to the their website, this manual will provide institutions with the information necessary to obtain certificates of authorization or approval of academic programs. The public is permitted to provide comments on the proposed guidelines and processes through Friday, February 20th on their website.
As an indication that the state of Ohio will soon join the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA), Appendix F of the manual is titled, SARA Guidelines.
The SAN-O Leadership Team encourages you and your university to review these guidelines and procedures and provide feedback to the Ohio Board of Regents.
