Program Evaluation and Development

Strayer University offers academic programs consistent with its mission and core values: effective adult learning and rigorous academic standards; a supportive learning environment that enables adults to achieve their professional and personal goals; superior customer service; and educational access to all desiring and qualified adults.

The University regularly reviews all degree granting programs and uses assessment tools designed to improve student learning. Students and alumni play an important role in shaping the curriculum by participating in surveys and focus groups and by providing individual feedback.

In close consultation with faculty the University Policy and Curriculum Committee reviews new academic program proposals and presents them to the Board of Trustees. New academic program proposals approved by the Board of Trustees are then reviewed externally by state licensing agencies and accreditors.
