Academic Quality Assessment and Development (AQUAD)

The Academic Quality Assessment and Development (AQUAD) is an external review process for assessing the core academic functions of each department or program at the university, including teaching and learning; research, professional, and creative activity; and public service and academic outreach. The AQUAD review provides a rigorous quality assessment, identifying strengths and targeting areas for growth and development. In this section, one will find the AQUAD 1999 Report, the revised AQUAD guidelines system, and the planning and self-study templates.
