70 years experience in quality assurance - JUAA's anniversary -

In 2017, Japan University Accreditation Association (JUAA) marks 70th anniversary of the establishment, and a commemoration ceremony was held on 31 Oct., in Tokyo.

JUAA was established in 1947 by 46 universities as initial members. Since then, JUAA has engaged in several activities including accreditation and setting standards, and now has become one of most widely recognized external quality assurance agencies in Japan. In the commemoration ceremony, more than 300 guests gathered from universities and the other organizations, celebrating the anniversary and discussing the future roll of JUAA. JUAA will continue to make a contribution to qualitative improvement of Japanese higher education, by deepening the relationship with other quality assurance agencies in the world.
