Collegiate Review, Fall 2020


University of Iowa policy requires that all colleges undergo regular reviews at least every seven years (Operations Manual, Part II 28.2). To comply with this policy, in Spring 2020 the Office of the Provost charged a committee to review the College of Nursing. The committee was asked to conduct a focused review on areas that have the potential to bring distinction to the College of Nursing and the University of Iowa; opportunities to enhance research and collaborations with other colleges and beyond to promote interdisciplinary research; lifelong learning opportunities; and prospective new curricular partnerships and development of new joint programs. The final review document is now complete and has been submitted to the College of Nursing administration and the Office of the President.
