Quality Assurance Center

The Quality Assurance Center (QAC) was established to monitor and oversee the educational quality standards at PSU to achieve national and international accreditation of the PSU program.

The QAC focuses on spreading the culture of quality in the university through continuous support and effective advising on quality matters, leading to the building of distinguished experiences in all academic and administrative processes. It aims at verifying and ensuring the university's services are being performed in a manner that meets or exceeds internal and external educational requirements and stakeholders' expectation. Along with other centers of the Deanship of the Quality Assurance and Development (DQAD), the QAC participates actively in all quality efforts such as strategic planning, teaching and learning, monitoring the actual work according to the annual plans as well as reflecting on the quality performance indicators against the pre-specified internal and external benchmarks, and support the accreditation process at the institutional and program level. The Quality Assurance measures are also supported by the Institutional Quality Assurance Committee (IQAC) chaired by the Deputy Vice Rector-Academic Affairs, to ensure timely quality measures are initiated at all levels of institutional administration.
