There are nine indicators in analyzing the teaching and learning process: 1) Accountability; 2) Efficiency; 3) Creativity; 4) Effectiveness in task assignment and group discussion; 5) Consistency;6) Productivity; 7) Clarity and adequacy of information; 8) Compliance with needs and responsiveness; 9) Level of satisfaction. The results show that; In general, the implementation of teaching and learning process by certified lecturers in Universitas Sumatera Utara is very good. However, Universitas Sumatera Utara as an educational institution needs to make improvements, to complement, provide facilities and infrastructure in the learning process. Meanwhile, on the management of human resources, especially certified lecturers should be improved to improve the quality of teaching and professionalism. If this measure is taken, the Universitas Sumatera Utara tends to meet the expected quality and will be able to compete with other higher education institutions in Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
