The Office of Institutional Planning and Effectiveness (OIPE) is responsible for promoting, monitoring and evaluating AU’s culture of assessment. The OIPE develops, implements, and monitors the quality enhancement plan with the involvement of all stakeholders. The OIPE has four units: Institutional Research, Institutional Planning and Effectiveness, Accreditation and University Ranking, and Quality Assurance.
The OIPE shares the results of institutional research and analysis of effective planning, budgeting, and improvement across all sectors of the University. The Quality Assurance unit of OIPE ensures the quality of all institutional documents as well as self-study reports prepared for accreditation of all academic programs offered by AU. The OIPE also contributes to enhancing the visibility and positioning of the University through its efforts to attain higher rankings in the Arab region and worldwide.
Under OIPE, an Institutional Effectiveness Committee (IEC) has been formed to play an important role in the entire assessment and improvement process. The IEC guides and monitors university-wide assessment and evaluation processes to achieve continuous improvement. The IEC oversees the College Effectiveness Committees (CECs) which in turn monitor the assessment processes conducted by the department-level Assessment and Continuous Improvement Committees (ACICs) and evaluate their effectiveness.
The OIPE invites all stakeholders to provide their valuable feedback for continuous improvement of the assessment and evaluation processes at Ajman University.
