Objectives and functions

The Quality Advancement Unit strives to promote awareness and initiatives around quality assurance within the institution, so that Nelson Mandela University can achieve its strategic priorities with respect to institutional innovation and excellence and the provision of a quality learning experience for all students.

The Unit works with both academic and administrative departments and sections in the design and implementation of quality assurance processes that address both internal and external requirements and benchmarks in a manner that is commensurate with the complex challenges facing higher education.

To promote a culture of continuing quality enhancement, the Unit facilitates capacity development within the institution in the context of the core academic responsibilities of teaching, learning, research and engagement, as well as academic and non-academic support services.
