Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance measures at AUIS work to ensure high levels of academic standards and institutional performances and that the quality is assured and enhanced on a regular basis. Our efforts are monitored by the Ministry’s Quality Assurance Committee to regulate and standardize ways to promote academic quality throughout Iraq and the Kurdistan Region. 

To support its mission of bringing American-style, liberal arts higher education to Iraq, AUIS has set American regional accreditation as a key institutional goal. The Accreditation Steering Committee, in pursuit of this goal, will coordinate all committees, oversee all record keeping, and produce all reports related to accreditation.
