    Abstract
    In recent times, in parallel with the development of quality assurance and education accreditation activities, Vietnam's education system has begun to pay much attention to the development of culture in general and the cultural development of Vietnam quality in particular in each educational institution. Besides, higher education institutions' academic quality assurance system has fundamental signification in considering, reforming the limitations, orientating plans and strategies to assure and enhance the internal activities' quality and satisfy the external quality assurance needs. Therefore, the quality culture is critical in building and developing internal quality assurance systems. This paper proposes that quality culture is the quality cognitive evolving map based on the systems theory and the quality culture forming process from the activities and the quality assurance activities in higher education institutions - a mental approach from the responsibility spirit to the quality culture. Based on implementing the internal quality assurance systems, the quality culture forming process - a long-term cognitive function on quality - expresses the effort and persistence of individuals and organizations in higher education institutions.
