OVPAA’s Quality Policy Statement
Quality assurance and quality enhancement are built into all OVPAA programs and services. The office provides guidelines and adheres to rigorous criteria and processes for selection, monitoring and evaluation. Pertinent information and forms are freely accessible from the OVPAA website, and questions and feedback may be given by customers in person, by phone or online.
At the system level, the output and outcome of extension service, research and creative work, and R&D extension and public service are evaluated by means of academic clinics and internal self-assessment or iAADS. Funding for the Academic Program Improvement is largely determined by these assessments. In addition, only those academic units that have accomplished the iAADS with very satisfactory scores are supported for accreditation by local and international bodies such as the ASEAN University Network. To further benchmark UP’s performance against international standards, UP takes part in the Quacquarelli Symonds World and Asian University Rankings and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, which classify institutions according to academic reputation, research output and international diversity. OVPAA manages UP’s participation in global assessments and rankings.
