Highest rating for the University of Trieste

15 October, 2019

Published the final ANVUR Report that officially accredits the University of Trieste with the highest rating: 3 recognized praxis meritorious practices that guarantee excellent results.

Now it is official: the University of Trieste is accredited with the "A-very positive" and a score of 7.61, the highest score - along with Trento - among those published so far.

With Resolution n.161 of 03/07/2019, the Board of Directors of the National Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research System (ANVUR), confirms the judgment proposed by the Commission of Experts of the Evaluation (CEV) at the end of the Accreditation visit in November 2018, which includes, we remind you, a careful analysis of the documentation whose results were verified in 5 days of intense checks and interviews at the University.

A few days ago, in fact, the ANVUR Periodic Accreditation Report on the Agency's website was published on the sites and courses of study of the Julian University. It is a document that summarizes in 30 pages the in-depth report that the CEV sent to the University at the beginning of May and that shows how the University has implemented in recent years a concrete and credible Quality Assurance System.

Moreover, the Report states that "the entire system for the QA has meant that the University of Trieste has received three reports of Meritorious Practices during the evaluation procedure by the CEV". This occurs only when a point of attention of the complex accreditation model is assigned a score of 9 or 10 because "the activities carried out (...) guarantee excellent results and can be reported to other universities.

This is a decidedly excellent result, all the more so when one considers that of the 15 universities accredited with the new model and for which the report has so far been published, less than a dozen practices have been reported as worthy of praise.

The area in which the three meritorious practices have been reported is also particularly significant. The CEV has verified, in fact, that the vision of quality declared by the University was really supported by an organization able to implement it, to periodically verify the effectiveness of procedures and in which students were given an active and participatory role at all levels.

If the Quality Assurance System has received such recognition, it is therefore due not only to the competence and dedication with which the internal rules have been defined, but also to the ability of the people involved to propose an approach that goes beyond mere formal compliance and that is convincing and shared by the students.

And it is precisely on the wave of these good practices that the University intends to aim to continue to work as a team and to ensure that, after having disseminated the culture of quality with considerable commitment for years, this becomes at all levels the approach with which to be an active part in the academic community.

The first appointment will then be in the Athenaeum at the beginning of December - one year after the visit - to share the experience gained and, ANVUR Report at hand, plan together the next steps.
