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.
