External Reviewers

Program reviews provide an opportunity for academic units to receive valuable input from external academic experts, to explore current trends and leading edge developments in the design and delivery of similar programs.

External Peer Review is an essential to the Program Review process.  During each Program Review, a Peer Review Team reviews the Self Study Report, visits the campus to conduct on-site interviews with key stakeholders and works to evaluate program quality as well as make recommendations for program improvement and advancement through a Peer Review Report.

Peer Review Teams normally consist of two or three experts from the discipline, field or profession who are external to the institution and at arm's length from the program, department and university.  Selected by the Provost and Vice-President Academic, in consultation with the Dean / Director, external peer reviewers provide valuable insight and advice on program quality, viability, and strategic direction in alignment with Mount Royal University's mandate, mission and goals.  More information on the External Peer Review and the role of Peer Review Teams can be found in the Cyclical Review of Academic Programs Policy 541.

If you have been asked to serve on a Peer Review Team, please contact the Dean's office directly for further information.
