Internal Quality Assurance of IUJ
Internal Quality Assurance of IUJ (Efforts to improve the quality of education)
In 2015, IUJ established the “Self-Study Committee”, which is a university-wide organization, to carry out self-study activities.
In addition, in 2018, we as a “Institutional Research (IR) and self-study committee” act in collaboration with the IR activity, which collects, analyzes, and supports data related to education and research at IUJ, in order to improve the quality of education.
Efforts for Internal quality assurance
The IR and Self-Study committee are held several times a year to plan, implement, and reflect on our self-study activities. We turn PDCA cycles, and carry out improvement activities.
In addition, since 2019, we have prepared a “self-study report” that complies with the standards of the Japan Institution for Higher Education Evaluation (JIHEE) every year, and an “External Evaluation Committee” consisting of external members from outside experts has evaluated it appropriate year. We reflect the opinions received from the External Evaluation Committee for the promotion of internal quality assurance into self-study activities.
