This accelerating era is facing emerging challenges at all levels regarding the quality of process and academic activities. Competitiveness of outputs in higher education institutions has emerged too. Therefore, the Deanship of Quality and Academic Accreditation at Al-Baha University has adopted the principles of quality in all areas of academic and administrative work at the University in terms of theoretical strengthening of the culture of quality; its practices and principles.
In addition, the University provides continuous training and education about quality. These are supported by the practical application of it in all the University's activities; through its commitment to quality standards, academic accreditation, performance measurement, the design of thoughtful and continuous improvement plans, and their implementation.
The university also seeks, in its strategic plan, “Wa'ed” to achieve institutional accreditation and to move towards achieving local and international accreditation for all its academic programs. Moreover, the University has made continuous efforts to achieve this goal, exemplified by its work towards achieving institutional accreditation and strengthening the institutional structure in the field of quality in all its academic and administrative activities to serve quality improvement of these aspects and obtain international and local accreditations in a way that leads towards institutional excellence in the future.
Finally, I would like to thank all the University leaders who have adopted quality in value and work, headed by His Excellency the President of the University; Dr. Abdullah bin Yahya Al Hussein, and His Excellency the Vice-President of Development and Quality; Dr. Faris bin Saleh Al-Ghamdi.
