Message from Vice-Chancellor
Quality is achieving or exceeding the expectations of the customers. For KIU, the quality of our education, research, and service delivery is a top priority. We believe that in line with the spirit of Total Quality Management (TQM), standards must be exhibited in all processes, projects, procedures, and people at KIU. The Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) has been established at KIU in line with the guidelines of the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), Higher Education Commission (HEC), to assure quality at Main Campus and sub-campuses. Aligned with the academic and research standards provided by HEC, we are endeavoring to achieve the desired level of performance through rigorous pieces of training of the faculty & staff, internal & external reviews, and compliance to the standards provided by HEC, and accreditation councils for various professional degrees. KIU is regularly submitting the Self-Assessment Reports (SARs) and University Performance Reports (UPRs). All the professional programs at KIU are permitted and accredited by the respective accreditation council. The positive Institutional Performance Evaluation (IPE) of KIU, Review of graduate programs (MS/Ph.D.), and endorsement of our professional degrees exhibit the trust of respective bodies in our quality assurance efforts. Nevertheless, more stringent efforts are required in this direction.
Quality is never a destination, rather it is a continuous journey of hard work and commitment, by all including faculty, management, staff, and students. Our dream is to enable our students to come to the expectations of the job market. Through Outcome-Based Education (OBE), we desire that their Knowledge Skills and Attitudes are developed for employability at national and global levels.
In the end, I appreciate the hard work of the QEC team for deploying, Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) systems at KIU and advise all to provide all supports to further our quality and standards of teaching, research, and delivery of services.
