Programs and Initiatives
The Second Integrated Plan envisions a comprehensive quality assurance framework to be fully implemented by the end of the second planning cycle (2011/12).
A Framework for Assessment is a comprehensive assessment strategy adopted in 2008. This framework establishes assessment priorities and links them to institutional-level planning and decision-making. A Framework for Assesment identifies several priorities for the second planning cycle, including:
Graduate Program Review (GPR) assesses the quality of graduate programs in the domains of teaching and learning, and of research and scholarly accomplishments.
Systematic Program Review (SPR) was an active degree-program quality-evaluation process from 1999 until 2005, designed to encourage program improvement and innovation, demonstrate accountability, and provide information to guide decisions about program revisions, deletions, and resource allocation. During this six-year cycle, 152 academic programs were reviewed. The SPR website is maintained for historical and research purposes.
