Guidelines for Periodic Review of Academic Centers and Institutes

Periodic external reviews and ongoing self-assessment are important for ensuring the maintenance of academic quality in Tufts’ programs. The following guidelines offer instructions, advice, and suggested timetables for the conduct of external reviews of non-departmental academic units such as centers and institutes. For these guidelines, the term “center” will be used generically to stand for all such entities, even if their official name uses a different term such as “institute” or “program.” The Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging will follow a separate protocol and is not subject to these guidelines.
