Program reviews ensure each program at Humber College is current, relevant and responsive to the changing needs of industry and society. For degree programs, these reviews also fulfil the requirements for obtaining consent for program renewal by the Ministry of Colleges and Universities.
Taking place every five to seven years, each review begins with the program team members examining its strengths and opportunities to improve it. PPDR consultants then facilitate an external assessment and help create an action plan. In between reviews, program teams annually reflect and report on their progress towards achieving the program’s goals.
The process for program reviews is evidence-based and collaborative, with PPDR engaging with the following key stakeholders:
- faculty members
- program administrators
- industry partners
- external academics
