aimed to explore the relationship between communication climate and
quality assurance practices in higher education institutions in
Pakistan. In this regard an attempt was made to measure the difference
between communication climates of high and low- ranked universities of
Pakistan. 5 public and 3 private sector high ranked universities and
5public and 3private sector low ranked universities were selected as the
sample clusters. At second stage, 500 faculty members from selected
universities were taken as sample by using simple random sampling
technique. Data analysis revealed that the on the whole high ranked
universities were having more supportive communication climate and
defensive communication climate was found commonly prevailing in low
ranked universities. Examining the relationship between communication
climate and quality assurance provides a valuable addition in the
available literature. It also offers new insights into how quality
assurance approaches and efforts can be made fruitful in higher
Education institutions in Pakistan.
