Library and Learning Services External Reviews

In September 2013, the Library and Learning Services Business Plan 2013-2018 was submitted to two external reviewers. Both reviewers were senior Library administrators who had successfully managed the transition from college to university library status and had met the expectations of AUCC assessments. At the conclusion of their individual reviews, they overwhelming supported the Sheridan Library and Learning Services Business Plan 2013-2018 as a blueprint for developing a Library (including resources and services) appropriate for an undergraduate teaching university with a combination of certificate, diploma and degree programs.

Self Study Report 2015

Over the course of the past year, Sheridan has embarked on a comprehensive institutional Self Study that has resulted in an extensive written report. To assist with our own assessment of our readiness to become a unique undergraduate teaching university, this report outlines the criteria for membership in Universities Canada and we have used those criteria as a basis for the formulation of our Self Study. As with all projects of this nature, this report represents a snapshot in time, while the work and progress we have made to-date will continue to move forward. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this Self Study, you are to be commended for your valuable contributions.
