Center for Quality Assurance(CQA)

Senate Standing Committee on Quality Assurance (SSCQA)

Internal Quality assurance systems in Universities were strengthening through the establishment of the Internal Quality Assurance Units (IQAUs) by a UGC Circular No. 04/2015. IQAC’s administrative and financial controls were managed through a Management Committee which was chaired by the Director of the IQAU as per this circular.

By an amended UGC Circular No.09/2019, IQAU was renamed as the Center for Quality Assurance (CQA) and the Management Committee of the IQAU was converted to a Standing Committee of the Senate of the University. Accordingly, Eastern University, Sri Lanka established the Senate Standing Committee on Quality Assurance (SSCQA) for the administrative and financial controls of CQA. The composition of the SSCQA was established as per the Annex 1 in that UGC Circular. The Vice Chancellor serves as the Chair of the SSCQA.
