Step 3: Reviewer Site Visit

The review panel will typically conduct a two-day site visit of the program between February 1 and April 30. During the site visit, the review panel will view relevant research and training facilities and will meet with the:

  • dean of the college or the director of the school or centre responsible for the program under review;
  • dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research;
  • provost and vice-president academic;
  • head of the department (for departmentalized colleges);
  • graduate chair and members of the graduate/research committee associated with the program;
  • faculty associated with the program;
  • graduate students in the programs under review; and
  • other members of the university community as appropriate.

Reasonable costs associated with the site visit will be covered by a fund managed by Institutional Planning and Assessment.
