Review Process of Program Educational Objectives

The Program Educational Objectives are evaluated every year along with attainments of the PEOs. The assessment process relies heavily on the feedback from the Expanded Steering Committee where all constituents are invited to participate. Recommendations on PEO changes are presented to the faculty and a plan of how to address and implement any change is discussed the next figure shows the process for reviewing the PEOs.
