When determining the effectiveness of an academic program it is important to assess the program
internally through the institution and academic leadership. But, it is also important to assess the
graduates that have benefited from the program. This study assessed a doctoral program at a regional
university in a metropolitan area. The doctoral program was eliminated due to financial constraints.
However, an alumni evaluation was not conducted on this program prior to it be eliminated. The
purpose of this study was to conduct an alumni evaluation on this doctoral program to determine its
effects with alumni.
