The Department of Quality Assurance and Strategic Planning (QASP) is committed to supporting Dar Al- Hekma's long-term planning efforts and its annual operational plans. This comprises overseeing the development of the University's strategic plan, facilitating training programs on quality matters for faculty and staff, preparing for institutional accreditation, preparing institutional quality reports with statistics and KPIs, and monitoring the progress of the improvement plans.
The mission of the Department of Quality Assurance and Strategic Planning is to assist divisions and departments at the University in providing high quality services by establishing a robust quality assurance system and overseeing its effective implementation to fulfill the national and international accreditation requirements and stakeholders' satisfaction.
Ensuring high quality education at Dar Al-Hekma University is central to achieving its vision and mission. To compete and survive within the rapidly changing environment and global context, it is crucial for our institution to meet national and international standards of quality assurance set forth for achieving excellence in teaching, learning, and community engagement.
The quality assurance system at Dar Al-Hekma is chiefly based on the function of the quality assurance committees at the institutional, divisional, and departmental levels who monitor the achievement of the improvement and operational plans and review the self-study and quality reports. These reviews are intended to provide quality feedback that supports improvement and provides accountability to our various stakeholders. While quality is a responsibility of everyone at Dar Al-Hekma University, the Department of Quality Assurance & Strategic Planning housed under the Office of the President is committed to providing the support, guidance, resources, and coordination needed to implement the various quality assurance processes and initiatives. In doing so, QASP ensures the implementation of the standards set forth by the accrediting bodies and the national and international standards applicable to the University.
