The general objective of the study is to assess Somali University Contribution towards higher education quality assurance in Somalia, where by the specific objectives are to evaluate Somali University quality assurance program in Mogadishu-Somalia, to analyze the main challenges facing Somali University services in Mogadishu-Somalia, and to establish possible solutions to the challenges. The research design was a descriptive survey and the sample size had 50 made up lectures and managerial/administrative staff. Questionnaire, interview and document review were used as a data collection tools. Data were analyzed according to quality assurance in higher education to assess the quality assurance of Somali University. The study revealed that Somali University had put in place a staff development program that enables experienced academic staff to benefit from a partial scholarship offered by the institute. However, the beneficiaries were required to contribute in their study. The project is aimed at creating qualified and competent human capital so that to find possible solution to future challenges. Despite all these efforts, it is an obvious thing that the university has failed to have quality teachers for higher education. The Somali University did not establish quality control department and also quality control committee; it has other means to improve quality assurance. The lack of quality assurance program and strategies of the university are not reflecting to its mission that reads “to provide sustained bases and administrate intervention in order to improve the performance and effectiveness of the private, civic and public sectors in present day and future Somalia”. Somali University is unlikely to achieve its goals with current workforce.
