The University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) strives to provide an environment for teaching, learning, research, public service and support services that stimulates innovation and produces world-class outcomes that are comparable to the highest international standards. This noble aim is reflected in the UDSM Vision and Mission statements.
The UDSM established the QAB in September 2007 as an internal organ with the mission to constantly monitor and evaluate Quality Assurance (QA) processes at the university.
QAB functions as the Vice Chancellor’s secretariat on QA issues and its performance is guided by the UDSM QA Policy.
The pivotal role of this organ is to determine whether or not quality standards set internally for measuring performance in all core operational areas of the University are constantly met and updated and that they measure up to the national, regional and international benchmarks.
