Academic Review

About Academic Review

Welcome! The annual Academic Review process applies to School of Advanced Studies faculty who are approved to chair dissertations. The review process was launched in the Fall of 2015.  Academic Review is an annual process where faculty update their scholarship record and scholarship plan, receive an endorsement to chair, and can request feedback and support to accomplish their goals.  

The academic review team can be reached at  This is a dedicated support team for faculty before, during, and after your review period. We are always available to answer questions or dialog. Faculty's Academic Review timing is aligned to their annual DCTR requirements. 

Outlook users:  Please make sure to check your clutter folder regularly, as we have heard from faculty that emails from are auto-routed into this folder; moving the message to your inbox generally fixes the issue.
