IQAC

In pursuance of its Action Plan for performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality up-gradation of institutions of higher education, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the institution’s system and work towards realization of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. For this, during the post-accreditation period, institutions need to channelize its efforts and measures towards promoting the holistic academic excellence including the peer committee recommendations. The work of the IQAC is the first step towards internalization and institutionalization of quality enhancement initiatives.


Objectives

  • To develop a system to improve the academic and administrative performance of the institution.
  • To promote measures for institutional functioning towards quality enhancement through best practices.
  • To assure all the stakeholders the accountability of the institution for its own quality.
