All colleges in Ontario undergo a full institutional College Quality Assurance Audit Process (CQAAP) every five years that is designed to assure and measure quality in their institutions. The audit is managed by the Ontario College Quality Assurance Service (OCQAS), an arms-length agency mandated by the province to allow the colleges autonomy in governing their own programs.

The audit’s purpose is to ensure continual improvement and is an opportunity to demonstrate the College’s commitment to provide students with the best possible postsecondary education.

PPDR manages the audit process on Humber’s behalf and connects with all Faculties and departments to collect evidence of quality assurance processes and procedures as part of the audit.

Stages of Audit Process

The Audit’s six quality assurance standards are:

  1. The existence of a quality assurance system
  2. The Program or Vocational Learning Outcomes are at the centre of program development and throughout the program’s lifecycle.
  3. The alignment of programs of study with relevant government requirements
  4. The quality of program delivery and student assessment
  5. The communication and monitoring of established academic policies and practices related to academic issues
  6. Availability and allocation of college-wide resources
