Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)
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 post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality
enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the
institution’s system and work towards realisation 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, it will
channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its
holistic academic excellence.
work of the IQAC is the first step towards internalization and
institutionalization of quality enhancement initiatives. Its success depends
upon the sense of belongingness and participation it can inculcate in all the
constituents of the institution. It will not be yet another hierarchical
structure or a record-keeping exercise in the institution. It will be a
facilitative and participative voluntary system/unit/organ of the institution.
It has the potential to become a vehicle for ushering in quality enhancement by
working out planned interventionist strategies to remove deficiencies and
enhance quality like the “Quality Circles” in industries.
