Catholic University Institute of Buea (CUIB) is the first Higher Institution of Learning in Cameroon to hatch the idea of an Entrepreneurial University. The university was founded with the mission to prepare “Professional Servant Leaders with Moral and Spiritual values who will contribute to the sustainable development of their communities” – trained as Job Creators NOT Job Seekers! In order to keep the difference and sustain that goal and in doing so, its founders dreamt and crafted out of the ordinary, high standards and norms that have to be maintained. Apart from standing tall in academic excellence and entrepreneurial prowess, CUIB would need to safeguard and maintain its functional operations so that its competitive advantage as a leading Entrepreneurial University in Cameroon and in sub-Sahara Africa does not slip away with the passing of time.
It is in this light that, the President and Pro-Chancellor of CUIB – Rev. Fr. George Nkeze Jingwa (Ed.D) has insisted on the need for a QA Team at CUIB. The team takes the liberty to add Enhancement to the terminology – to read Quality Assurance and Enhancement (QAE). QAE will hitherto become a tool to guard against any form of depleting functional standards and therefore, imperatively an Institutional-wide system of practices and procedures to assure that CUIB’s operations satisfy our various stakeholders in perpetuity.
