Term Definition
QUALITY CULTURE

It refers to a set of shared, accepted, and integrated patterns of quality (often called principles of quality) to be found in the organizational cultures and the management systems of institutions.

Quality culture may also be defined as the ability of institution or individual programme to develop the quality assurance system in its everyday work and, thus achieve continuous quality assurance, not relying exclusively on periodic evaluation.

Awareness of and commitment to the quality of higher education, in conjunction with a solid culture of evidence and with the efficient management of this quality (through quality assurance procedures) are the ingredients of a quality culture. As quality elements change and evolve over time, so must the integrated system of quality supportive attitudes and arrangements (quality culture) change to support new quality paradigms in higher education.
