Academic Quality Assessment & Development

Academic Quality Assessment and Development (AQAD) is a component of the University Performance Measurement System. The primary purpose of this component is to assess and improve the core academic functions of teaching and learning, research, professional and creative activity, and public service/academic outreach through an ongoing system of quality control/program assessment at the unit level (i.e., department or program).

Effective 2017-18, the AQAD process will be a review of departments and all its programs. AQAD review will serve as a mid-term review for all departments seeking professional accreditation for specific programs.
