In response to a University of Manitoba Task Force on Strategic Planning (February 1998) a set of evaluative criteria for assessing existing academic programs, and a process to review all academic programs was devised with the goal to maintain the academic integrity of academic programs at the University of Manitoba. Senate initially approved the document outlining the criteria and the process in May 2000, encapsulated in the policy on Academic Program Reviews. In 2005, Senate approved a revised Academic Program Reviews Policy and related procedures. The 2005 documents remain current.
