About IPQA

The Directorate of Institutional Planning and Quality Assurance (IPQA) at the University of Venda (UNIVEN) was established in 2007. At UNIVEN Institutional Planning and Quality Assurance are one directorate. The model conforms to current global practices where university-wide planning and quality assurance activities are integrated. Both strive towards enhancing an effective and credible university. They represent common activities that strengthen each other and allow the university to carry out its core function of teaching and learning, research, and community engagement. The significance of this directorate cannot be over-emphasized, considering the increasingly complex planning and quality control challenges that confront higher education institutions throughout the world.

Institutional Planning and Quality Assurance functions have become matters of great importance for universities around the world. In South Africa, responsibilities and activities of Institutional Planning and Quality Assurance are strongly informed by the statutory reporting requirements of universities to bodies such as the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC); as well as the national call for Universities to contribute to higher education policy analysis and development.

Mandate

The IPQA Directorate plays an advisory role to the Vice Chancellor, also executing ad-hoc assignments as delegated by the Vice Chancellor and also to facilitate Institutional Planning, Quality Assurance and Management Information Systems policies and processes that drive decisions and actions aimed at achieving sustainable levels of effectiveness in teaching and learning, research and community engagement.

Much of the work of the IPQA happens at a departmental level with the collaboration amongst the three units of the department.

Vision

Institutional Planning and Quality Assurance will be the foundation and rationale for all decisions and actions aimed at realizing the vision and mission of the university.

Mission

Within the framework of the University’s vision and mission, this directorate promotes and facilitates strategic plans, quality assurance and management information system strategies which guide decisions and actions of the university.
