Divisional Reviews

A new Divisional Review process commenced in Autumn 2013, designed to reflect upon and assess the services being delivered by each division with a view to identifying good practice, and considering the scope, quality, effectiveness and cost of these services.

A review panel visits the division concerned,  meeting with staff and key stakeholders. The panel also look at a range of documents, the most important being the self-evaluation document produced by the division. The panel is chaired by a Pro Vice-Chancellor and includes external members.

A report and action plan is agreed by the panel and forwarded to the Director of the Division and the University Planning and Resources Committee (UPARC) for action.

The Divisional Review process is co-ordinated by the Strategic Planning and Governance Office (but overseen by the Governance team).
