EDCP External Review 2014
Colleagues: On July 22nd, I sent you a copy of the EDCP Self-Study Report which is a central part of the external review that the department is undergoing. The document has now been delivered to the Dean’s Office. Some time later in the summer, the report will be sent to the three external reviewers, Dennis Thiessen (OISE), Rina Upitis (Queens), and Ted Riecken (UVIC). They will be visiting campus November 3-5 later this year, so please put these dates in your calendars to be present on campus for the visit of the external review team.
