What is the Five-Year Evaluation?

Article 71 of Law 139-01 on Higher Education, Science and Technology states that: “The Five-Year Evaluation is a process to which institutions of higher education must undergo every 5 years to assess and describe the institutional conditions to ensure compliance with agreed and regulated quality criteria and standards, through the provision of their services to Dominican society “.

Which phases are involved?

    • Self-evaluation process planning.
    • Institutional self-evaluation execution.
    • External evaluation by MESCyT.
    • Institutional Improvement Plan execution.

What are the dimensions that make up the Five-Year Evaluation?

    • Institutional Management
    • Academic Management
    • Research
    • Outreach/Extension
    • Students
    • Academic Staff
    • Institutional support services and structures
    • Quality Assurance

Which phase of the Five-Year Evaluation are we currently in?

We are working on the implementation of the institutional self-assessment. This process involves a review and analysis of the functioning of our university in the dimensions mentioned above with the objective of producing a diagnostic report on the position of the institution based on the framework standards that regulate the quality of Dominican higher education included in Law 139-01. 

Why do we self-evaluate?

This phase of the process allows us to identify opportunities in the management of the different processes that make up our institution and all those who are part of it. 

This is carried out with the support of Ministerio de Educación Superior, Ciencia y Tecnología (MESCyT) based on the Framework Standards for Institutional Evaluation and Accreditation that were approved by Consejo Nacional de Educación Superior, Ciencia y Tecnología (CONESCyT).

 Who participates in this process?

All members of the university community play an important role during the Five-Year Evaluation process: students, faculty, administrative staff, and alumni.

For this phase of self-evaluation, an Institutional Self-Evaluation Committee, an Internal Self-Evaluation Sub-Committee and an Integration Sub-Committee are appointed. They are responsible for documenting the evidence of each dimension.
