Sustainability of any meaningful growth at all levels in any nation is achieved through education. Consequently, higher education is where the knowledge that sustains a nation is nurtured. This thus underscores the importance of quality in higher education. If this is the core mandate in National Policy on Education, who then defines what constitute quality in this context, how is it assessed, maintained and how have all these played out in higher education system in Nigeria. This contributory piece towards a quest for quality education in Nigeria therefore seeks to attempt addressing these questions through the prism of the input, output and outcome approaches with a view to suggesting direction for actualizing quality in higher education in Nigeria.
