One of the emerging challenges faced by any higher educational institution is the development, application and maintenance of quality benchmarks in all its key performance areas. To institutionalize the process of quality sustenance and enhancement, the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) has been established in the University. The IQAC in the university came into existence in 2003. It was reconstituted, as per the guidelines of UGC, on 12.07.2010. The IQAC is a nodal agency for ushering in the era of total quality management by working out intervention strategies to enhance overall quality in the institution.
The IQAC works for ensuring continuous improvement in the entire operations of the institution, and assuring all the stakeholders connected with higher education- namely students, parents, teachers, staff, funding agencies and society in general.
The NAAC advocates establishment of IQAC by every institution to make quality enhancement an integral part of institutional functioning. IQAC is utilized to generate good academic ideas and practices. It seeks to work for planning, implementing, and measuring the outcome of academic and administrative performance of the institution.
The primary aim of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic action to improve the academic and administrative performance of the institution. It aims at fulfillment of the mission and the vision of the university in the light of its quality policy.
