UGC's commendations on Lingnan's Progress Report on QAC Audit Findings

In response to the findings in the Report of a Quality Audit of Lingnan University announced on 19 October 2016, the University worked out the Progress Report which was submitted to the Quality Assurance Council (QAC) of the University Grants Committee (UGC) on 30 April 2018. The UGC commended that “Both QAC and UGC considered that the University’s follow-up is full, adequate and sound, and its Progress Report, supported by a substantial body of high quality supporting evidence, provides a comprehensive account of a sustained and continuing effort. The depth in which every word of advice and encouragement was considered attests to the openness of LU to accept and benefit from constructive criticism in the interest of enhancing its provision for students.”


As shared by Prof Shalendra SHARMA, Associate Vice-President (Academic Quality Assurance and Internationalisation), the University responded to all the constructive comments from the QAC with seriousness, clarity and hard evidence to show our dedication to take the University to its next level in excellence in teaching and learning. The University has taken the suggestions/comments on board for discussion by various committees/units including task specific working groups with a view to devising ways to address them. An action plan, which was submitted to the UGC in January 2017, spells out the actions and measures to be taken with indicative timeframes and clear lines of responsibilities. Colleagues have earnestly carried out the planned actions and contributed to the compilation of the Progress Report which is evidence-based as well as forward-looking.


“I am very proud of the fact that we worked together as a team to advance teaching and learning at Lingnan. The positive outcome is truly the result of teamwork and mutual support,” said Prof Sharma.
