Caribbean Quality Culture takes the Caribbean higher education community and its stakeholders beyond quality assurance of higher education to delve into an exploration and assessment of the application of continuous quality improvement principles and strategies that are essential elements of a mature and effective quality management system in higher education institutions.

The principles and strategies that can actually result in continuous quality improvement may not always be fully understood throughout higher education institutions. This collection seeks to bridge this gap to facilitate successful implementation of continuous quality improvement in such operational areas as governance and administration, student development and learning outcomes, and external quality assurance.

Experienced and respected Caribbean higher education stakeholders, including leaders and practitioners, explore a range of topics, such as leadership, stakeholder engagement, the online learning environment, curriculum development and curriculum renewal for sustainable development, the transformative development of students, and the continuous quality improvement implications for the Caribbean of international and regional developments in the higher education sector.
