About the IQE Center

AMU Institutional Quality Enhancement (IQE) Center is one of the sub-processes in AMU which covers those activities from quality auditing to designing and implementing quality improvement programmes. The center stems from the Academic Development Resource Center (ADRC) which has achieved and contributed a great deal in the Continuous professional development of Arba Minch University Academic staff through trainings, Curriculum Development, Internal Quality Audit and Resource provisions since its establishment in 2005.

The EQIP project which has supported ADRC has officially ended in October, 2009. Due to the end of ADRC and based on the findings of BPR study in 2009, the need for establishing Institutional Quality Enhancement Center has arisen. This emanates from the need to bring about fundamental changes in quality enhancement and assurance of the inputs, the throughputs and outputs of our university activities.

AMU IQE Comes with a mission of serving AMU to excel in its services and products through quality audits of the university, through the provision of local professional development trainings to its staff and through continuous evaluation and feedback of its performance. In other words, the Center aims to insure the provision of quality education and creation of responsible citizens, the opening of new programmes based on stakeholders’ and customers’ need, the provision of community service with a highest quality and minimum cost, the conduct of societal problem-solving, demand driven research and the provision of support services with a highest customer satisfaction.
