Scope and content

Senate policy requires that all academic departments undergo periodic external review. The Vice-President, Academic's Office has responsibility for coordinating this process, advising departments on timelines, assisting with the preliminary self-study, identifying potential external reviewers, and receiving and disseminating documentation. After 1990, these responsibilities were delegated to Academic Planning Services. Files relating to earlier reviews were transferred and integrated into the record-keeping system of Academic Planning Services.

This series consists of records relating to the external review process. All the departments reviewed are academic units, with three exceptions: the Registrar (sub-series 7), the University Library (sub-series 14), and the Financial Aid and Awards Office (sub-series 18). Records include review check lists, correspondence, site visit schedules, departmental self-study reports, CVs, budgets, surveys, departmental handbooks and other printed matter, meeting minutes, external review reports, and departmental responses to the external review.
