Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance (QA) is designed to help each faculty, department, institute and program achieve and maintain standards of excellence in research and teaching. It also helps to:

  • Document their quality relative to comparable units nationally and internationally;
  • Provide information to Senior University Administrators and Deans to guide the re-allocation of resources and to provide the means by which existing undergraduate and graduate programs can be evaluated;
  • Create an institutional culture of excellence;
  • Meet public accountability expectations through a credible, transparent and action-oriented review process including publication of assessment outcomes;
  • Augment Comprehensive and Strategic Plans with expert assessments of existing and planned activities in research and teaching on a regular basis.
