Program Vitality Updates

The Program Vitality Committee (PVC) is a joint committee between the Faculty Senate and the Office of the Provost. The PVC seeks to realize the fullest potential of our academic programs as we look to position the university for the future and to revitalize and streamline the program review process through a more timely and responsive evaluation. 

The PVC is comprised of six faculty members selected by the Chair of the Faculty Senate and the Chair of the Faculty, six administrators selected by the Provost, and two ex-officio members (the Director of the Office of Institutional Research or a member of that office and the Chair of the Faculty).
