Felicitating the newly elected committee members, Prime Minister Sargsyan talked about the university accreditation process underway in our country: “This is a very responsible process that we started many years ago and we must take it to logical end, when the university accreditation process will kick off in the Republic of Armenia. It is crucial for the Commission to enjoy great authority, as they are supposed to be impartial in assessing the performance of individual universities. We are well aware of the existing problems as most of the universities are not prepared to comply with the accreditation standards. Therefore, we must ensure a smooth transition to the new system. At the same time, universities need to understand that this is a pretty strict institution, and that they will have to carry out serious reforms,” the Premier noted.

In conclusion, the Board discussed and approved a set of draft amendments to the accreditation procedure and Foundation by-laws.
