What happens if we are NOT certified?

The university and all its members lose prestige in front of the public opinion. If the university is not certified, the professional diploma of their graduates retains validity.

What is it good for?

It allows us to continually self-assess ourselves and develop plans for intervention on the quality of education.

It allows us to see our strengths and weaknesses by constantly evaluating our programs, and most importantly it allows us to coordinate support among all stakeholders of the university community to face challenges of change for improving the general conditions of education.
