2014 Periodic Review Report

The Periodic Review Report (PRR )is the interim accreditation update that occurs between the ten-year self-study intervals. This particular PRR will be far from routine for Rowan University. Several significant changes have occurred, not only in response to the findings of the 2009 Self-Study, but also as a result of developments that were not even anticipated at that time. The opportunity to reflect on the state of the institution is always enlightening, but this should be an especially engaging process.

Key areas to be addressed include:

Suggestions and Recommendations from the 2009 Self-Study

  • Institutional Effectiveness, Research, and Planning
  • Strategic Enrollment Management
  • Camden Campus
  • General Education

Substantive Changes

  • Cooper Medical School
  • School of Osteopathic Medicine
  • Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
  • Change in mission to public research university
  • New joint governing board with Rutgers-Camden University


  • Bond funding for new construction and capital improvements
  • Faculty hiring initiative
  • Strategic planning
  • Academic program development
  • Access and retention initiatives
