Institutional Quality Assurance Process (IQAP)

The OCAD University Institutional Quality Assurance Process (IQAP) is the policy and procedures for developing, reviewing and approving new undergraduate and graduate program proposals, and proposing changes to or undertaking periodic cyclical review of existing programs offered solely by OCAD University (OCAD U) or in partnership with any other post-secondary institution. The IQAP embeds the requirements stipulated in the Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) and specifies what is required internally by OCAD U’s governance process to the point of submission to the Quality Council.

The IQAP is intended to foster an institutional culture that values structured, ongoing analysis of program quality to guide curriculum improvements and drive the adoption of effective innovations. The IQAP ensures the academic excellence of the university’s programs and their consistency with the quality standards applied to comparable postsecondary programs in Ontario.

The Vice-President, Academic and Provost is the administrative authority responsible for the University’s IQAP Policy and procedures for new and existing programs and is the Authoritative Contact between the university and the Quality Council.
