RE: Meetings to Discuss the National Research Council (NRC) Assessment of Research Doctorate Programs
We invite you to attend one of two meetings scheduled to review the results of NRC Assessment. The methodologies used by the NRC to create the range of rankings are complicated. These meetings are intended to assist you in understanding and evaluating this massive set of data.
The meetings will take place in Room 282 of the Reitz Union on Wednesday October 6, 2010 from 9 a.m to 10 a.m. and on Friday, October 8, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Summary information prepared by Institutional Planning and Research, the Excel Spreadsheet prepared by the NRC and links to NRC websites can be found online here: http://www.ir.ufl.edu/OIRApps/nrc/signon.aspx.
