About the Academic Quality Assurance Unit
The Academic Quality Assurance Unit (AQAU) of the University of Ghana was established by the then Vice Chancellor, Professor K. Asenso-Okyere in May, 2005. Prior to this, the College of Health Sciences of the University had its own Quality Assurance Unit that oversees the standards of Academic work in that College. The particular form that the Legon AQAU should take was subjected to debate for a while but in March 2007 the Unit was officially opened and housed at the Staff Development and Learning Resource Centre. It started with a staff of two: A Director and one Principal Administrative Assistant. In August 2007, a Coordinator responsible for Admissions Quality Audit was appointed.
Currently, the Academic Quality Assurance Unit (AQAU) has been given a major boost by relocating from the Staff Development and Learning Resource Centre to a larger office premise in the K. A. B. Jones Quartey Building.
The current staff includes the Director, Assist Registrar, Principal Administrative Assistants and three National Service Personnel.
