Douglas College to accept recommendations from review of Chinese partnerships

April 23, 2012

Douglas College announced last week that it will adopt all the recommendations in an independent review of its 2 partnership programs with Chinese institutions. The 2012 review followed up on a 2010 internal report by Douglas faculty regarding exam and grading practices at the college's partner institutions in Shanghai and Harbin. The latest report notes that the college has already addressed a number of issues identified in its review. The report also found "no evidence of systemic or widespread irregularities related to the examination or grading practices of either partner institution." In addition to changes already in place, the report outlines a series of recommendations to align the business processes of the partnerships with best practices. The report is available on request through Douglas. Douglas College News
