academic review

The Quality Assurance Office uses the IQAP to oversee cyclical program reviews, new program proposals and major modifications on behalf of the Associate Vice-President, Academic and the Associate Vice-President, Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs.
To ensure the quality of academic programs, all existing programs, new programs and major modifications to existing programs are subject to review by Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance (Quality Council). The Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) guides this work. Each university has its own Institutional Quality Assurance Process (IQAP) (pdf) that adheres to the QAF, and has been approved by Senate and ratified by the Quality Council (QC).

  • quality of outreach activities and service to the University, the profession, and the community,
  • contribution or importance of the program to other campus programs, and
  • potential and future expectations for the program.
