USIU-Africa launches the first ever Scorecard


USIU-Africa launched the University Scorecard on Tuesday, 18 December, 2018 during the end of year staff party which was attended by employees, members of the Board of Trustees and the visiting team from University of Dhaka. The Vice Chancellor thanked the staff for working tirelessly in 2018 to ensure that they delivered in various departments as stipulated in the strategic plan. He said that the Scorecard gives the University a snapshot of performance on key institutional indicators and it allows the University to compare the overall performance of the past academic year and compare it with two years before. He also added that the Scorecard gives and sets performance targets for next academic year.

“As far as we know, this is the first Scorecard produced by a university in this country. It is part of our continuous efforts to be trendsetters in higher education in the country and region,” said the Vice Chancellor. He further added that collecting and analyzing accurate data is imperative for informed decision-making and tracking institutional performance over time. The creation of the Scorecard is a critical part of this effort as it contains several key indicators over a three-year period. The Scorecard shows student indicators (enrolment, student ratios, retention rate, graduation rate), academic indicators (new degree programs and research productivity), financial indicators (grants and contracts, fundraising and financial growth), employee indicators (recruitment and retention), institutional progress indicators (implementation of strategic plan and establishment of partnerships), and institutional reputation indicators (brand equity, partnerships, and institutional ranking—the latter is under investigation and planning).
