Guiding Principles of Program Improvement

As professional educators, our primary goal is to help students learn. We must have relevant and current programs and must establish program goals designed to prepare students to achieve their educational goals. M State recognizes that, as an institution, we need to be accountable to our constituencies. This process provides a structured, scheduled opportunity for a program to develop a strategy for improvement. The process:

  • Shows the relationship between the M State Mission and student learning outcomes
  • Demonstrates the relevancy, currency and effectiveness of instructional programs
  • Defines the needs of the program so that the resources of the institution may be appropriately applied
  • Points to areas where curriculum and staff development are necessary
  • Provides the data and information for use in institutional planning and resource allocation
