The East African Higher Education Quality Assurance Network (EAQAN) is a network of quality assurance practitioners in the region. The Network was formally established in 2012 and organized its first forum in May 2012 which was held in Entebbe Uganda. Since then, and following the agreement during the EAQAN General Assembly, EAQAN in collaboration with the Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) has been organizing an annual QA Forum around May every year. The subsequent forums have been held in Kigali 2013, Arusha in 2014, Nairobi in 2015, Entebbe 2016, Dar es Salaam 2017 and Kigali in 2018. These gatherings provide opportunity for EAQAN members to present papers and share best practices and experiences on key issues of quality assurance, receive further training and network with other QA practitioners in the region and beyond.
