The institutional commitment to quality is laid down in IPCA’s Statutes, which regulate the composition, operation and powers of the Council for Assessment and Quality, the body responsible for drawing up proposals for mechanisms for self-evaluation of the performance of the institution, its organisational units and its technical, scientific and teaching activities. 

IPCA’s institutional quality strategy aims to involve the entire academic community and the society with which it interacts in order to guarantee the quality and continuous improvement of its processes. The basic principle is that the quality policy is implemented and developed with and for people, in line with the strategic orientation of the institution.
