Quality Assurance and Accreditation

 

        QUALITY AND ACCREDITATION

The concept of quality was addressed early by USTY in 1999 when the unit of quality was established. It was the first unit in the country concerning academic quality. Now it is called Quality Assurance and Accreditation Management. (QAAM)). The aim of QAAM in USTY is to enhance the educational service quality and develop the service delivery procedures including all components of the educational system in USTY such as teaching, curricula, staff, students, infrastructure, equipment, regulations, operations, and administration. Currently, QAAM is comprised of 4 units in the head office and 9 units in 8 colleges and the Girls’ Branch. In 2004, the Steering Council of Quality has been established in USTY to figure out the strategies and polices of the USTY quality.

In the field of accreditation, USTY recently launched the project of international accreditation and three pilot programs are ready to register for the international accreditation by 2014. These programs are Pharmacy, Computer Science and Business Administration. When these three pilot programs are accredited, the rest of programs in USTY should follow the same process to be accredited in couple of years. Quality is important to USTY, as it is our duty and responsibility to give the best to our students. We may be lacking in some areas, and we stand corrected, but we will improve, for without quality, we are nothing.

        STRATEGIC PLAN OF THE UNIVERSITY

In strategizing the change for the University, USTY used the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) approach. Beginning with identifying the four strategic goals as per the four dimensions of the BSC, many sub-goals have been branched off from the four strategic goals. Each sub-goal is achieved through implementation of projects to achieve the goal directly. Indicators were developed to measure the achievement of the sub-goals. The follow-up and assessment mechanism is regularly and continuously implemented according to the BSC instruments prepared previously for this purpose. Through a system of monthly and quarterly reporting from all departments and branches of the University, we developed criteria for measuring the implementation and success of the projects on time. Any shortfalls are rectified through corrective action plans.

        Learning, Research, Development and Consultation Centers

In addition to faculties, USTY has centres which offer educational, consultation, research and development services, training courses and workshops for either individuals or organizations. Thecentres play a great role and make positive contribution to community development, create awareness and provide skills and training in education-related areas. The following are Research Centres.
