Quality Assurance  Center

 

INTRODUCTORY

 It is my pleasure to introduce the home page in English, produced by the Assiut University Quality Assurance And Accreditation Center (AUQAAC). The center, established on 31st October 2004,has been a must as a result of Egypt's highest concern for education.

 Education reform is considered as the first national priority project to face the challenges of the third millennium. Performance evaluation and quality assurance in higher education institutions are very important issues that have to be highly regarded by universities by establishing the Assiut University Performance Evaluation and Development Unit (AUPEDU) in 1997. Since then, the unite has implemented many pilot activities. In the Previous eight years, the members of the unit have harmonily led the development theme in Assiut University. The unit, and its established branches in all faculties/institutes of the university, have disseminated the quality culture among he staff members, staff assistants, students and non-academic employees. Also, many pilot projects concerned with the institutional and academic programs self-evaluation were performed.

This home page is a tool for disseminating consciousness and understanding of performance evaluation, quality assurance and accreditation systems as basic pedagogic concepts. Implementing such concepts aims at developing the whole education process in universitie.
