This institutional effectiveness manual (IEM) demonstrates and documents the institutional quality standards, processes and procedures developed by Birzeit University (BZU) to ensure its commitment to maintaining quality education while fostering continuous improvement of its provisions and outputs. The IEM provides a list of assessment standards that underpin the university’s academic quality enhancement and institutional effectiveness. It provides clear procedures, processes and guidelines to those involved in the academic quality enhancement and in the institutional effectiveness. The manual takes into account the requirements of the Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission (AQAC), the Palestinian national agency, for licensure, re-licensure, accreditation, re-accreditation.

The manual is aligned with international criteria if and when external accreditation for existing academic programs is pursued. It also meets the minimum threshold requirements to pursue international certification for quality management systems for any interested department. MORE
