Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)
As per National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) guidelines every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC becomes a part of the institution's system and works 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.
Goals of IQAC
The primary aim of IQAC is
• To develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic action to improve the academic and administrative performance of the institution.
• To promote measures for institutional functioning towards quality enhancement through internalization of quality culture and institutionalization of best practices.
The college has in place an Internal Quality Assurance Cell. The IQAC was established first in 2007 as one of the Post Accreditation initiatives for quality enhancement. The institutional policy with regard to quality assurance pertains to ensuring excellence in academics, extra-curricular and sports fields. Periodic academic testing of the students is done through monthly tests, mid-semester tests and house exams, seminars, organizing extension lectures by experts and organizing a large number of extra-curricular and sports activities are an evidence of how quality assurance has been institutionalized in the regular functioning of the college. The IQAC identifies strengths and weaknesses in the quality assurance procedures and to monitor the teaching and learning outcomes. It also works to evolve a feedback mechanism for further reforms and development, to promote research culture among the students and to explore new avenues to meet the global trends of the contemporary scenario.
