The Institutional Evaluation is a process directed to the constant improvement of the Institution, with the goal of reinforcing the institutional identity, consolidating its brand and take action over its weaknesses. With this understanding and in life with what is determined by the Higher Education National Evaluation System, Unigranrio has created on August 2004, its Internal Evaluation Commission – CPA.

CPA is responsible for the management of the internal evaluation processes of the Institution, of systematization and delivery of the information requested by the Federal Government. From August 2004 to July 2006, the first phase of institutional evaluation was executed.

The collection of data was made as follows:

1. Questionnaire (printed) answered by the Pro-Rectors, Unit Directos and Course Coordinators;

2. Questionnaire made available at the Unigranrio Portal, answered by professors, students, staff and formed students;

3. Questionnaire (printed) answered by representatives of the organized civil society sectors;

4. Analysis of the PDI, PPPI, Internal Regiment, Institution Annual Report and Annual Report from each School;

5. Maping of the projects developed in the Research, Extension and Graduate Area.

  • The mission of the Institutional Development Plan (PDI);

  • The teaching policy, the Research, Graduate program, Extension and the respective forms of operationalization;

  • The Institution’s social responsibility;

  • The communication with the society;

  • The personnel policies, the faculty and technical-administrative body careers, its improvement, professional development and work conditions;

  • The Institution’s management and organization, especially the function and collegiate representativeness, its interdependence and autonomy related to the supporting institution and the participation of the academic community segments in decision processes;

  • Physical infrastructure, especially the one of teaching and research, library, information and communication resources;

  • Planning and evaluation, especially of the processes, results and efficiency of the institutional self-assessment;

  • Policies of student services;

  • Financial sustainability, keeping in mind the social meaning of the continuity of the commitments in the offer of higher education.

The constitutive essence of the institutional evaluation means that it must be “a assortment of everyone, for everyone, stirred and seasoned”. Therefore, CPA presents a synthesis of the topics presented in the first INSTITUTIONAL SELF-ASSESSMENT REPORT (made fully available at the Portal) and a few follow-ups already made by Unigranrio.
