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

We have concluded phase II, which is the institutional self-evaluation. In this process, a review and analysis of the functioning of our university in the mentioned dimensions was made 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.  
From February 6 to 8, we will receive the visit of the MESCyT peer evaluators at our main campus, in order to validate the information provided as part of the self-evaluation, through meetings with university authorities, collaborators, graduates, students, teachers and employers.
Why do we self-evaluate?
This phase of the process allowed us to identify opportunities in the management of the different processes that make up our university and for all those who are part of it.  
This was done with the support of the Ministerio de Educación Superior, Ciencia y Tecnología (MESCyT) based on the Framework Standards for Institutional Evaluation and Accreditation approved by the Consejo Nacional de Educación Superior, Ciencia y Tecnología (CONESCyT).
