DCU Quality Assurance Structure
Quality Assurance and DCU Leadership and Governance Structures
The University’s Senior Management Group (SMG) is included at a number of stages of the quality review process. Upon completion of an Area’s Self-Assessment Report (SAR), SMG receives a copy of this report, and all supporting documentation. A meeting with the Senior Management Group and a further meeting with the member of SMG with management responsible for the Area under review is a core element of the Review Visit. Further, as part of the Quality Improvement Planning following a review visit, SMG provides to the university’s response to recommendations of the Peer Review Group. All outputs from the External Quality Review process are considered at the University’s Quality Promotion Committee, University Executive Committee, and the University’s Governing Authority.
