NCURA Peer Programs

Program Governance


The Select Committee on Peer Programs provides overall guidance for the NCURA Peer Review and Peer Advisory programs, including program direction and policy. The Select Committee has responsibility for reviewing credentials of potential peer reviewer-advisors, recommending appointment of reviewer-advisors, developing the NCURA Peer Review Standards, and strategic planning in the context of NCURA priorities. Select Committee members are appointed by the NCURA Board of Directors.

NCURA Peer Program engagements are priced as a flat fee, scaled to the sponsored programs total active award dollars in the last fiscal year, regardless of type of Peer Program engagement. 

The NCURA Peer Review team had an impressive level of relevant experience and perspective. As a result, the process brought instantaneous credibility to our plans to implement suggested improvements to the research and scholarly activities at our school.
