In May 2000, in response to a University of Manitoba Task Force on Strategic Planning, Senate approved a policy on Academic Program Reviews outlining a set of evaluative criteria and process for assessing existing academic programs with the goal to maintain the quality and academic integrity of academic programs at the University of Manitoba. The policy was reviewed and revisions approved by Senate in January 2005, and subsequently in June 2020. The 2020 documents remain current.
Under the current procedures, each undergraduate and graduate academic program shall be reviewed at least once every eight (8) years, on a schedule set by the Provost and Vice-President (Academic). Where appropriate, undergraduate and graduate programs may be reviewed concurrently.
This page will be updated with more details as the revised policy and procedures are implemented over the course of the fall 2020 term and the schedule of the next cycle of reviews is finalized. In the interim, please direct any inquries related to academic program reviews to Cassandra Davidson, Academic Programs Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
