Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)


Development of a culture that recognizes the importance of quality and quality assurance is essential in institutions of higher learning. Quality assurance is a new paradigm of academic and administrative management. The changing educational landscape calls for setting up a formal and effective mechanism for the approval, periodic review, monitoring, evaluation and assessment of quality of the programmes in higher education institutions. It is in this vain that the proposal by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) to establish Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) has been undertaken by every accredited institution of learning.

The quality assurance activities are not just limited to collecting data; rather it is also expected to analyze the data for enhancing quality, providing accountability, establishing stakeholder confidence and creating trust in the institutions performance. Since quality assurance is a continuous process, IQAC is now becoming a central theme in Higher Education, ever endeavoring to work towards realization of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance.
