Under the Quality Assurance Framework of the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, Salim Habib University (formerly Barrett Hodgson University) established the Quality Enhancement Cell in March 2019 with the aim of maintaining and enhancing the quality of teaching, learning, and research at the university. This can realistically be achieved through the effective implementation of IQA (Internal Quality Assessment) and EQA (External Quality Assessment) measures.

The Quality Enhancement Cell focuses on balancing the quality of education in the university with regular checks via various surveys on all facets of institutional functions on a distinct format ensuring the credibility and confidentiality. The department also performs the role of a bridge between the HEC (Pakistan) and the Institution to implement the policies and guidelines on the said standards.
