  1. meeting national and regional developmental needs;
  2. developing quality assurance processes in order to ensure that teaching, learning and research in the region achieve and maintain international standards;
  3. assisting member universities and other higher education institutions to identify and implement good practices in institutional management and use of resources;
  4. developing human resource capacity in all disciplines of higher education in the Community; and
  5. promoting equal opportunities for all higher education students in East Africa, including those with special needs.
