Directorate Quality Assurance

Since 2005, Kenya has shown concern about the downward trend in academic quality in her public universities. This concern is justifiable due to increased student population but with disproportionately low resource allocation. As a country, she is committed to delivery of high quality of education to drive the economy as is envisaged in the Kenya Vision 2030. As such, each public institution whose core mandate is to provide education is expected to make provisions for sustainable quality in all her activities.
As is implicit in the University Statutes, the overall objective of the Directorate of Quality Assurance is to promote high academic standards through maintenance and continuous enhancement of quality academic, research, consultancy and outreach programmes, in line with the University’s Charter, Statutes, Strategic plan, ISO 9001:2015 Standards, and guidelines and standards set by relevant commissions and regulatory authorities.
