Quality Assurance Process Audit
UFV’s academic quality assurance policies, procedures and processes were reviewed in 2020-2021 by the Degree Quality Assessment Board (DQAB), Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training in a Quality Assurance Process Audit (QAPA). All public post-secondary institutions in BC participate in the QAPA every seven years. The DQAB Summary of UFV’s first QAPA outlines the process undertaken and affirms the university’s commitment to quality assurance and quality enhancement. UFV produced two documents in support of the audit: the QAPA Institution Report October 2020 and the QAPA Institution Response 2021.
