Summary

This document reports on the new academic program review activities of the Maryland Higher Education Commission. Two new sections of the Education Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland implemented in 1997 changed the academic program review process for institutions within the University System of Maryland (USM). The process now calls for a 60-day academic program review process at all institutions of higher education and requires the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the governing boards of public institutions of higher education to identify low-productivity academic programs. The revised review process has severely limited the ability of the Maryland Higher Education Commission to assess the quality and accessibility of new academic programs proposed by USM institutions. The Commission is no longer able to consider the market demand for proposed programs, curriculum quality, expected learning outcomes, adequacy of faculty resources, or adequacy of instructional equipment and facilities. The Commission has found, however, that the 60-day period has improved the time-to-implementation of new degree programs. In the most recent review cycle (July 1999-December 2001), 121 new academic programs were implemented without objection for USM institutions, compared with 51 new programs approved in the previous cycle. The new criteria revolve around mission consistency, a fit with existing resources, the avoidance of unreasonable program duplication, and compliance with equal opportunity obligations of state and federal law. The review of programs of low productivity in terms of degrees resulted in discontinuing 31 programs, continuing 108, and providing additional study of 29. Eleven appendixes provide graphs of data about academic programs in Maryland. (Contains 10 figures and 1 table.) (SLD)
