Directorate of Academic Planning and Quality Assurance
The proposed Academic Planning and Quality Assurance Directorate establishment is informed by the need to ensure quality teaching and learning in the University through improved academic standards, value for money on investment in higher education and improved service delivery. It is in response to the need to evolve sound professional ethics in the management of the University, which demands that the social characteristics of the beneficiaries should be regularly related to the available resources and the future needs, in order to progressively ensure quality control and delivery. It will be in charge of planning the academic activities and prepare the Academic Calendar for the University in order to ensure the current best practices in teacher education and to address comprehensively, the various factors that may have bearings on quality output from the University. The Directorate will address the input and output in the institution in an objective manner. It will undertake regular self-evaluation of the institution, using essentially the same instruments, criteria and standards that the NUC or any other external assessors would use for accreditation and/or assessment.
The Directorate will be headed by a Director appointed by the Vice Chancellor.
