MacEwan receives audit status, delegated new program approval status from CAQC

MacEwan University has received audit status and been delegated a new program approval status from the Campus Alberta Quality Council (CAQC). These delegations will streamline the university’s degree program development and review processes by enabling MacEwan to internally review its new degrees and new specializations within existing degree programs using processes and documentation that can be provided to CAQC, if requested. The proposed programs can then be sent directly to the Government of Alberta’s Minister of Advanced Education for approval. “It’s about 14 years in the making,” said MacEwan Academic Quality Assurance Officer Dr Ken Ristau. “It’s basically the completion of our transition from community college to university.”
