All academic programs at Touro University California are subject to systematic program review. The program review process is designed to evaluate and enhance the quality of academic programs through a focus on student learning outcomes, evidence-based decisions, and integration with institutional planning. This reflection on assessment results allows for programs to make evidence-based conclusions regarding their performance and evidence-based decisions in proposing major programmatic changes or in requesting resources. These evidence-based decisions and requests are then shared with the Provost and integrated with the planning and budgeting processes.

TUC Program Review Committee (PRC) leads the institutional systematic program review process.  These reviews may be coordinated with, but are independent of, the periodic reviews of educational programs conducted by professional accrediting agencies. In 2012, PRC approved the TUC Academic Program Review Guidelines. Learn more about current committee Membership and PRC Bylaws by viewing the documents.

For the current program review cycle, the following programs have gone through the systematic program review process. Program Self-Studies, External Reviewer Reports, PRC Findings & Recommendations and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) can be found in Compliance Assist!
