Working under the strategic direction of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic), the Office of the Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President (Academic) has two major university-wide responsibilities: operational academic planning and implementation; and academic quality assurance. The latter responsibilities are aligned with the provincial Quality Assurance Framework.

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.
