IQAC Introduction

 Major Topics


        The Internal Quality Assurance Cell(IQAC) of the college is primarily focused in internal quality. The University Grants Commission (UGC) and the National Assessment and Accreditation Council(NAAC) have laid the onus of quality enhancement of colleges on the IQAC. The primary objective of the IQAC is to look into rather than at the college processes with a perspective of providing quality to all the stakeholders.

Understanding the significance of Internal Quality Assurance Systems (IQAS), the IQAC has attempted over the years to systemize processes through which quality enhancement can be achieved. The IQAC has also perceived that quality enhancement initiatives need to be decentralized, rather than nodal, with several activity heads being appointed and each deploying their activities as a separate team.

The college IQAC quality policy for all stakeholders is ‘inclusion through involvement’. This policy ensures that all the stakeholders, mainly the staff and the students involve themselves in all activities of the college during their tenure.


The Aims and Objectives of the IQAC

  • To define quality parameters for the college.
  • 2. To work as catalyst for the overall academic and administrative improvement of the institution.
  • 3. To create a desire among the stakeholders for the pursuit of knowledge, to acquire the skills and achieve excellence in teaching-learning and research.
  • 4. To monitor the quality aspects of the institution.
  • 5. To undertake quality-related initiatives, consultancy and training programmes.
  • 6. To intervene and guide the departments wherever necessary for quality enhancement.

The IQAC has, from time to time, adopted the quality parameters set by statutory agencies such as the UGC, NAAC, State Government and the University and used them to assess and assure that quality is maintained.


                        IQAC may be constituted in every institution under the Chairmanship of the Head of the institution with heads of important academic and administrative units and a few teachers and a few distinguished educationists and representatives of local management and stakeholders
