The UW Graduate School contributes to the strength of the University's educational and research missions by conducting quality assessment of proposed and continuing educational programs at the graduate and undergraduate level as well as of research institutes and centers. Reviews of educational programs are mandated by state law at 10-year intervals, but are conducted at shorter intervals when deemed appropriate. The assessment process is one of peer review, with review teams individually assembled from faculty of our and other leading research intensive universities for each program reviewed. The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies was last reviewed in 2005-06 (at the time, Division of Spanish and Portuguese Studies).
