Participating Department Graduate Programs Survey

CPIN is under preparations for a periodic 5-year program review. This review will provide an opportunity to consider the program from an academic and administrative perspective and assess the performance of program offerings in relation to our goals.

Please update the graduate programs information from your member department.
