IRMA Week in Review


Week of April 23, 2021

1. The Program Portfolio Review (PPR) dashboard has been posted on the Department and Program Resource Room of the IRMA website. The PPR is a simultaneous review of undergraduate and graduate degree programs according to a set of common criteria. It is intended as a planning resource for college, department, and program leadership, and will be updated annually. The PPR dashboard includes extensive documentation on the PPR model and methodology, as well as instructions for navigating through the dashboard. For questions about dashboard access, contact Kristina Walters. Please direct any other questions about the PPR to PPR@depaul.edu.

2. We have been working with our Academic Affairs colleagues to develop faculty and staff workshops for the PPR roll-out this week. Materials from these sessions will be posted soon on the Department and Program Resource Room. For more on this, contact Jasmine Ahmad.

3. Our April Brown Bag will be a review of findings from the Blue Demon Engagement survey. The Division of Student Affairs partnered with IRMA to create and launch a new survey measuring students' academic habits, personal success habits, affinity to DePaul, sense of belonging to other students at DePaul, and their personal and social resiliency.

For more information, contact our guest presenter Scott Tharp, Assessment and Effectiveness Specialist in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.

4. We met with several of our college colleagues to discuss the Schedule Planning Tool. This tool helps colleges understand and plan for course demand in the upcoming term, based on Civitas modeling from past terms. For more information, contact Patti Huerta.
