The Office of the Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President (Academic) was established in July 2012. Working under the strategic direction of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), the Office has two major university-wide responsibilities: operational academic planning and implementation; academic quality assurance. The latter responsibilities occur within the establishment in 2011 of a new academic quality assurance regime for Ontario’s publically assisted universities.

The main areas of focus for the Office of the Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President (Academic) are:

  • Advancing the strategic academic initiatives of the University
  • Overseeing Carleton’s Institutional Quality Assurance Process (IQAP)
  • Developing a culture of continuous improvement for Carleton’s academic programs

In support of these broad and interconnected activities, the Office is engaged in a number of institutional initiatives and works closely with the senior executive, senior administrators, faculty, staff, and students across campus.
