ASA Program Reviewers and Consultants

On this page you will find the list of program reviewers and consultants (formerly the Department Resources Group [DRG]) who are trained in program review best practics, along with a statement of their consulting approach and abbreviated CV that highlights their background and experience most relevant to program review and consultation. 

To find a reviewer who is a good fit with your program's needs and priorities, we suggest you use this document (Excel or PDF) which lists each reviewer and their areas of expertise and experience. In the Excel file, you can filter by desired characteristics and expertise. Once you have identified a few possible matches, you can review their abbreviated CV and statement of consulting approach below. You are invited to contact the consultants directly to request a full CV or to discuss your interest in working with them. 

ASA Program Reviewers and Consultants have many different institutional affiliations and substantive interests but all share a common concern for the advancement of the discipline, as well as the enhancement of departmental programs and curriculum. Regular training keeps consultants current on issues in higher education, literature on teaching sociology, and best practices in organizational consulting. ASA Program Reviewers and Consultants work with both undergraduate and graduate programs, stand-alone sociology departments, interdisciplinary departments and joint programs. 

If you'd like help finding the right consultant to work with, contact ASA's Director of Research, Professional Development, and Academic Affairs at rpa@asanet.org. To provide feedback to ASA on your experience working with a consultant, you may contact rpa@asanet.org or fill out this feedback form.
