Scholarly Activity and Applied Research Policy at SAIT

What does Scholarly Activity look like at SAIT?
In offering its bachelor degrees, SAIT Polytechnic adheres to the standards set by the Campus Alberta Quality Council (CAQC). The council is an arms-length, quality-assurance agency that regulates the degree programs offered by Alberta's post-secondary institutions. 


The CAQC requires academic faculty to engage in scholarly output and/or research in order to enhance and maintain their knowledge base to support instruction. To reflect SAIT's commitment to these activities, and to help guide SAIT researchers in their scholarly pursuits, SAIT has developed a Scholarly Activity Policy document and a Scholarly Activity Procedure document:
