Center of Development and Quality Assurance (CDQA)

The CDQA drives concurrently with the university’s mission so as to ensure that the quality of education and research provided is under continuous review and that the standards set are appropriate and being met. Therefore, CDQA is dedicated to setting out the structures, procedures, and outcomes of the evaluation processes. Furthermore, the CDQA provides administrative and substantive leadership, guidance, and support for quality assurance at all levels of the university, and it supports the institutional and faculty accreditation processes and content. Moreover, it supports the university to achieve its mission by assessing and improving administrative and academic performance, supporting various units of the university and providing an excellent educational experience for students.

The CDQA defines, examines, maintains and disseminates official institutional data, and it provides institutional information to both internal and external constituents for the purposes of describing, documenting, and publishing institutional information and measuring effectiveness. In addition, the CDQA provides quality assurance and institutional effectiveness workshops and encourages the use of multiple measures in assessment and curricular and program improvement. The next stages for the University involve the challenges of an overall continuous institutional review. The quality assurance process at all levels is nevertheless continuous and requires ongoing effort to meet the University’s commitment to fully participate in quality assurance mechanisms both for its academic and administrative structures.

The CDQA’s role is to make significant contributions to developing, reviewing, monitoring, managing, and implementing quality assurance policies and procedures and associated administrative systems. In addition, it contributes to special institutional projects and quality assurance-related activities.


1. Formulating strategies, policies, systems, procedures, and practices for the university’s academic quality assurance and enhancement.

2. Upholding and implementing quality-related strategic developments within sustainable quality assurance and enhancement frameworks and procedures in accordance with the university’s vision and strategic planning.

3. Promoting a culture of academic quality within the university.

4. Developing policies and guidelines for teaching evaluation, program reviewing, and student learning assessment.

5. Monitoring, reviewing, auditing, evaluating, and continuously developing the university’s quality together with its quality assurance and enhancement strategies, frameworks, and procedures at all levels of the university, for the promotion of academic excellence in learning, teaching, and research.

6. Providing administrative and substantive support for quality assurance and enhancement at all levels of the university and supporting the institutional accreditation processes and contents for external organizations and agencies.

7. Providing any other duties that fall within the scope.

Examining the University performance from different perspectives and setting a rich framework is extremely critical in meeting national and international accreditation requirements. Therefore, the CDQA is adopting a comprehensive self-examination model that covers any accreditation requirements at the institutional, school, and program levels.This means that the CDQA reflects the context of the standards of excellence for institutional context and educational effectiveness.
