Quality assurance unit is one of the critical management units within tertiary institutions. The unit ensures that an institution and its component departments meet the approved standards and norms for the tertiary sector, which together lead to the training of the requisite human resources for promoting and implementing the national development agenda.
“My presence at CSUC offers me the opportunity to contribute to establishing a quality assurance unit which will spearhead the institutional drive to improve teaching and learning, and thereby the quality of the knowledge production process and output (the graduates)”.
Prof. Owusu hopes to contribute effectively to ensure that the University College adequately prepares students academically and morally to play effective roles in the transformation and development of society.
