IQAC Roles and Functions

The visions and roles of IQAC are


·        To develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvements, quality and performance

·        To usher in quality by working out intervention strategies to enhance performance

·        To optimize and integrate modern methods of teaching and learning

·        To disseminate information on quality parameters and share research with other institutions


In another words, the primary role of IQAC is to promote measures for institutional functioning towardsquality enhancement through internalization of quality culture and institutionalization of best practices.Quality assurance is a by-product of on-going efforts to define the objectives of an institution, to have a work plan to achieve them and to specify the checks and balances to evaluate the degree to which each of the tasks is fulfilled. Hence devotion and commitment to improvement rather than mere institutionalcontrol is the basis for devising procedures and instruments for assuring quality. The right balance between the health and growth of an institution needs to be struck. The IQAC has to ensure that whatever is done in the institution for “education” is done efficiently and effectively with high standards.


Quality assurance and enhancement being an on-going campaign, the IQAC of the college organizes workshops and seminars on quality related themes and the various programs of the college have been documented in the form of a self-study report.


The IQAC is currently poised and preparing to welcome an expert team to assess and accredit the institution, for its very first cycle of accreditation under the auspices of the national assessment and accreditation council(NAAC), a statutory body of the University Grants Commission (UGC).
