Role of the Senate Committee on the Evaluation of Undergraduate Programs (SCEUP)

The Senate Committee on the Evaluation of Undergraduate Programs (SCEUP) sets the evaluation schedule, selects the external reviewers and informs the Vice-President Academic and Provost accordingly. It also informs the Vice-President Academic and Provost of the evaluation results and of any other issue related to the overall process.

The Committee reviews the self-evaluation reports and then meets with those who drafted the reports as well as with the Chair of the academic unit concerned. Using the evaluation reports and other comments received, the Committee drafts a summary report that lists the strengths and weaknesses of the program in question, puts forward recommendations and ensures they are implemented.

The SCEUP is chaired by the Associate Vice-President Academic; its membership comprises a maximum of twelve professors, who must represent the two major branches of knowledge – the pure and applied sciences, and the humanities and social sciences – as well as programs requiring prior university studies. Members are appointed by the Executive Committee of the Senate, upon recommendation by the Vice-President Academic and Provost. One of the members is a faculty member at Saint-Paul University, in keeping with the agreement between the two institutions.
