The Quality Assurance Section actively supports the enhancement of teaching and learning practices at the university. It collaborates with Deputy of Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs in the branch to oversee the implementation of academic Sections’ action plans. The section also conducts teaching evaluations, and implement student feedback mechanisms to ensure continuous improvement in the quality of education.
 

Promoting an environment that values student feedback and engagement is a vital aspect of the Quality Assurance Section’s work. It facilitates student surveys, focus groups (during internal audits), and feedback mechanisms to capture student perspectives on various aspects of their educational experience. In fact, it views students as strategic partners who play a substantial role in ensuring quality.
 

The Quality Assurance Section actively supports professional development and training initiatives for faculty and staff. It organizes workshops and training sessions to familiarize staff and students with quality assurance principles and to enhance staff’s leadership skills. By investing in the professional growth of academics and administrators, the section contributes to the overall improvement of teaching and learning experience.
 

Another essential responsibility of the Quality Assurance Section is to ensure that the university meets accreditation requirements and remains in compliance with relevant regulations and standards. The section collaborates with external accrediting bodies, conducts self-assessment exercises, and prepares the necessary documentation for accreditation reviews.
 

Put simply, QA does not dictate additional tasks, rather it ensures that the daily practices within the university are performed in a systematic manner. Hence, quality assurance is everyone’s responsibility and together we can make a difference.
