Standards and Indicators require that course content is up-to-date and reflects “recent developments and current professional practice.” Peer review provides assessment in this area.

Syllabi are reviewed each semester by faculty members and posted to the School's web site. The system used for posting the syllabi automatically includes required elements. Periodic administrative review of learning outcomes ensures program standards are met.
