Academic Quality Assurance Framework

We’re committed to delivering education that works for our learners and our partners. This means we’re always looking for new and better ways to develop and deliver top quality education for New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) students.

NBCC has developed an Academic Quality Assurance Framework with robust program standards to govern program development and revision of the high-quality programs we are known for.

Here’s what this means we will do for our learners and partners:

  • use evidence-based data to make program changes
  • develop and offer sustainable and in-demand programs
  • focus on learner and stakeholder needs now and into the future
  • measure and evaluate the goals and objectives of the programs we offer
  • identify opportunities and areas for improvement and positive change
  • adhere to an annual program review and implement a five-year cycle for in-depth review

Adhering to this framework means NBCC remains dedicated to driving economic and social well-being through relevant and in-demand education.
