ROLE

The UGC in its 12th plan (2012-2017) prescribed guidelines for the establishment and monitoring of Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC).  The aim was maintaining the momentum of quality consciousness that is crucial in institutions of higher education. Internal Quality Assurance Cell, in fact, is conceived as a mechanism to build and ensure a quality culture at the institutional level. Every College should have an internal quality assurance system, with appropriate structure and processes, and with enough flexibility to meet the diverse needs of the stakeholders.

The role of the IQAC focuses on planning, guiding and monitoring Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Enhancement (QE) activities of the colleges. The IQAC may channelize and systematize the efforts and measures of an institution towards academic excellence. The IQAC attempts to become a driving force for ushering in intervention strategies for quality enhancement.

 

The major functions of IQAC include:

  • Facilitating the creation of a learner-centric environment conducive for quality education
