Quality Assurance in Higher Education: Experience of Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco

Abstract: We propose to delineate different steps a young educational institution might take in its quest for quality assurance, as well as the challenges it may be facing in the course of this process. We describe the experience of Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane (AUI), a relatively young Moroccan institution that follows the American educational system and which is located in a country that is predominantly Arabic speaking and highly influenced in its administration and procedures by the French system. Throughout its brief history, the University has worked to achieve quality, by beginning with the best definitions of quality available, using the resources available to implement quality, regularly assessing the achievement of quality, and now working towards external certification of quality.
