The third cycle of the Institutional review (IR) of University of Moratuwa by the University Grants Commission (UGC) was done in the year 2019. The previous two cycles were successfully conducted in the years 2006 and 2013. The university is privileged to obtain an “A” grade (the highest possible grade) for this year’s institutional review.
The review process started with the submission of the Self Evaluation Report (SER) in May 2019. In February 2019, a steering committee was formed under the leadership of the Vice-Chancellor comprising (not limited to) DVC, Director/Quality Assurance, Deans of Faculties, Registrar, Bursar, Librarian, Senior Academics and Administrative Officers, which worked towards the submission of this SER. The steering committee was ably supported by Academic-Support Staff, Non-Academic Staff and the Students of the university.
Following the submission of the SER, UGC appointed an IR panel comprising of five Senior Professors from five local state universities and an international reviewer who is an internationally renowned QA expert. The panel made its site visit to the university from 16-21st December 2019, following their desk evaluation of the SER submitted by University of Moratuwa. The review panel then submitted their review report to the UGC with their commendations and recommendations giving an “A” grade to the university which was then forwarded to the Vice-Chancellor by the UGC.
The whole IR process was coordinated by the Internal Quality Assurance Unit (IQAU) of the university under the guidance of the Director/Quality Assurance with the logistical assistance from DR/Academic & Publications, DR/Institutional Affairs and AR/External Affairs & Publicity.
