Quality Assurance and Strategic Planning
The Quality Assurance and Strategic Planning (QASP) is committed to supporting Dar Al- Hekma's long-term planning efforts as well as annual operational plans at all levels. In this regard, the QASP Office assists in the development of the University's strategic plan; facilitates training programs for faculty and staff; prepares for institutional and programs accreditation; and follows up on outcome assessment and course evaluations.
QASP engages and encourages departments to continuously improve through compliance processes for institutional accreditation and assist units in seeking and maintaining relevant, programmatic accreditation; sustain alignment between accreditation standards and university initiatives; develop processes for continuous collaboration with all stakeholders.
Ensuring high quality education at Dar Al-Hekma University is central to achieving our vision and mission. In order to compete and survive within our rapidly changing environment and increasingly global context, it is crucial for our institution to meet the national and international standards of quality assurance set forth for achieving excellence in teaching, learning and scientific research within higher education.
Currently, the quality assurance system at Dar Al-Hekma is chiefly based on self-reviews that are conducted at the institutional, divisional and departmental levels. 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 Quality Assurance & Strategic Planning Department housed under the Division of Institutional Advancement 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 NCAAA as well as international standards applicable to the University.
