Planning is essential to evaluating the quality of academic programs at San Francisco State University. Planning is comprised of four interrelated academic processes:
Institutional Strategic Planning:
SF State revises its strategic plan every 10 years. The current strategic plan, CUSP II, is intended to guide institutional priorities from 2005 to 2010.
Academic Program Review:
A process to assess the University's academic degree programs during the course of a 'cycle' that lasts approximately six years to complete.
Academic Program Assessment:
Departmental level assessment strategies are reported to APD in order to identify and mark progress toward enacting their objectives and goals.
Discipline Specific Accreditation:
Academic programs that are accredited by outside agencies prepare and submit accreditation documents which address disciplinary standards.
