I am delighted to join Divine Word University from 6 August 2018. The spectrum of the Quality Assurance Committee has been broadened to cover all aspects of DWU i.e. not only academic activities but administrative and support activities as well. I am pleased to see that DWU is very much focused on quality and DWU is already at a high level when it comes to quality assurance. However, there are challenges faced by academic Institutions all over the world and particularly in developing countries. Among these challenges is maintenance of quality standards in teaching, research and services to students.
Therefore, it is vital that all of us comply with the contents of top tier documents including DWU Act, DWU Charter, Strategic Master Plan, Learning and Teaching Plan and policies which are in the DWU intranet Policy Library. I am sure that everybody will endeavor to achieve 12 national standards against which this university will be assessed in the Quality Assessment of DWU by DHERST.
The Quality Assurance Division extends its support to all staff to achieve our main objective, i.e. to reach very high standards in all areas of DWU and maintain the high standards.
