Results of latest Systematic Program Reviews released

The U of S has released the latest outcomes of Systematic Program Review (SPR), the six-year review program that assesses all academic programs.

Established by University Council in 1999, SPR is a thorough program analysis designed to encourage improvement and innovation, demonstrate accountability, and provide information to guide decisions about programs and resources.

In 2001-02, all programs in Engineering and most Natural Science programs on campus were reviewed. They were evaluated for quality (of curriculum, faculty, learning environment, infrastructure and outcomes), demand, efficiency in the use of resources and relevance to the province.

There are four outcome categories: A (outstanding programs; few, if any, changes required); B (some improvements needed; program will be sustained); C (fundamental changes required; concrete action plan must be developed to address deficiencies); and D (requirement to consider termination).

Of the programs reviewed in 2001-02, 4 were rated A, 14 were rated B and 3 were rated C.
