Step 2: Review Panel

A graduate program panel comprised of three senior academics will provide a peer assessment of the program under review.

The review panel will normally consist of one member from the University of Saskatchewan and two members from outside the university; one of whom will be from outside of Canada. Review panel members will have established research reputations and extensive experience with graduate student supervision and graduate program administration. 

The appointment of the three reviewers will be made by the dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research in consultation with the provost and the dean, director and the department head (or the designated graduate chair) of the academic unit with graduate program under review. The reviewer nomination guidelines provide more details of this process.

The reviewers will examine the graduate program self-study document and will conduct a graduate program review site visit. The panel will be asked to make judgments on the quality and impact of graduate programming in the identified discipline.
