Program Reviews

Reviews of Graduate Programs by Graduate Studies

The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies participates in all external reviews on a regular basis, about once every five or six years. The Faculty is able to provide much of the graduate-related information which can be included in a unit’s self-study report. Units, on the other hand, are better able to provide information on external graduate student scholarships, publications and teaching records. Once the self-study report is complete, one of the Associate Deans of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will meet with the review committee. The Faculty must also receive a copy of the review committee’s report.

Guidelines for External Reviews

Please review the unit guidelines for program reviews. As noted in the guidelines, the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will work with units to provide data to be included in the self-study document. Please allow up to 6 weeks for data to be delivered, and submit requests with sufficient processing time.


If your department is about to undergo an external review, please contact the Graduate Executive Assistant at with regard to the data that Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies are able to provide for inclusion within your self-study.
