The intent of this paper is to explore the effect of leadership and academic culture on the implementation of Self Assessment Manual (SAM) in Public sector universities of Pakistan. A questionnaire was sent to the Quality Enhancement Cells (QECs) of 25 universities.

Academic culture and leadership were found as critical factors for the implementation of SAM in most of the universities.QEC is playing a significant role for implementation of SAM. Semester and Semester with Annual system of education are contributing better for SAM implementation regarding QEC role. QEC should launch an advocacy move for the self assessment in the institution.
