The Saint Joseph University mother campus in Beirut has initiated on the recommendation of the AERES in September 2015 a project leading to the establishment of a dedicated department for Quality Assurance in the university with the aim to submit for an international institutional accreditation. Hence, a roadmap of quality assurance was designed and validated by the University Council in October 2015.
In July 2018, the University Saint Joseph as a full-fledged educational institution including its faculties, departments, regional centers and its international branch in the Emirate of Dubai submitted an accreditation file to the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute – ACQUIN which is accredited by the German Accreditation Council.
In April 2019, the university obtained the accreditation by the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Assurance Institute (ACQUIN). This has put the University Saint Joseph as a whole on the path towards becoming a key player in the establishment of a culture of quality at higher education institutions in Lebanon, the Gulf and the Middle East.
