Mission statement and understanding of quality

(Resolution of the Foundation Board, 12th October 2018)

evalag is a centre of excellence for quality development in the higher education and scientific sector.

evalag is active in European and international networks for the further development of the European Higher Education Area.

evalag understands itself as a partner of higher education and scientific institutions. We offer expertise to support higher education and scientific institutions in their commitment to high quality in research, teaching and study and the entire organisation.

evalag works dialogue- and development-oriented and contributes with customised instruments and procedures to the organisational development and to the promotion of the quality culture of higher education and scientific institutions. evalag also addresses these instruments and procedures as topics of research.

In certification procedures, evalag combines the fundamental testing approach with development-oriented elements to support degree programmes and higher education institutions in their holistic quality development.

evalag continuously monitors and analyses developments in the higher education sector, integrates these into its own portfolio and makes them practically and scientifically-theoretically accessible for both higher education institutions and higher education policy.

evalag works professionally, reliably, transparently and on the basis of national and European standards for quality assurance and development.

evalag expects respectful and correct behaviour from all persons in its own field of work and rejects all forms of intolerance or discrimination.
