Preparation and submission of internal self-study by program director or departmental chair in context of widespread consultation with faculty, staff, cognate units and students.
Increasingly templates and data to be used in self-study will be provided centrally. Programs, research, teaching, governance and plans for the future to be discussed, along with measures of quality to assess the program or department against national and international peers.
External reviewers (typically 2 for a department) visit campus for two days and prepare their report for the Dean. Important that report provides detailed evaluation of programs and curriculum.

Clearer governance structure established, more standing committees appointed, terms of reference developed for them

Director of Intellectual Community appointed to increase faculty and graduate student presence on campus, mentors to be more fully engaged with new faculty
