USIU-Africa hosted the Commission for University Education (CUE) on Monday, June 10, 2024, for a verification exercise of the Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice and Master of Arts in Transitional Justice programs, as well as a verification of the status of content uploading for nine Online programs.

The CUE Panel was led by Dr. Eunice Keta and included Ms. Sarah Ooro and Col. Dr. C.O. Imbiakha, the resource person for the Criminal Justice programs. USIU-Africa was represented by the Interim Vice Chancellor - Dr. Lola Odubekun, Dean SHSS - Prof. Martin Njoroge, Director of USIU Online - Dr. Phillip Machoka, Director Quality Assurance - Dr. Peter Kigwilu and a team of faculty and staff.

Dr. Phillip Machoka presented the course presence on the Learning Management System (LMS) for Master of Arts in Communication, Master of Arts in International Relations, and Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. The panel acknowledged the substantial improvement in course presence since the previous site visit in February 2024.

The verification for the Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice program was preceded by a presentation by Dr. Joyce Muchemi, program's academic leader, followed by a physical tour to verify the available resources. The Panel concluded that the program met the threshold for recommendation for approval, subject to addressing minor requirements. The Panel also noted that the academic resources for the Master of Arts in Transitional Justice program, which included print and electronic resources and databases were adequate to support the program's delivery, and recommended approval of the program. All the nine Online programs also met the threshold for approval by the Commission.

In her closing remarks, Dr. Lola expressed gratitude to the Commission for continued support in ensuring the university offers quality education. She commended the USIU-Africa team for a job well done in developing the programs.

USIU-Africa's commitment to academic excellence and its dedication to meeting the rigorous standards set by the CUE were evident throughout the verification exercise. The successful completion of this exercise marks a significant milestone in USIU-Africa's journey towards expanding its academic offerings and cementing its position as a leader in higher education in the region. This sets the stage for the university to roll out the online modality to meet the diverse needs of students. It further confirms the university commitment to providing accessible, innovative, and globally competitive education.
