Cyclical Program Reviews (CPRs) are essential to ensuring quality in all academic programs, scholarship and research. CPRs provide an opportunity for academic programs to articulate or update their degree level expectations (DLEs) and discipline-specific learning outcomes. The outcomes of CPRs will be used to make informed judgments around academic quality and resource allocations.
QUQAPs for the conduct of Cyclical Program Reviews (CPRs) consist of five major components:
Senate Cyclical Program Review (CPR) Committee
Terms of Reference (approved by Senate May 25, 2011)
In accordance with the Queen’s University Quality Assurance Processes (QUQAPs), to advise the Provost annually on the institutional perspective regarding final assessment reports from the internal cyclical program reviews (CPRs) of all undergraduate and graduate academic programs.
For each review, receive and evaluate:
To make recommendations to the Provost that will assure the Program’s ongoing improvement.
To report annually to the Senate and to recommend any amendments to the QUQAPs.
