ABOUT IQAC DUVASU
Importance of quality and quality assurance is essential in higher education institutions which should be imbibed in the basic ethos of an institution. Quality assurance is a dynamic paradigm of academic and administrative management. The fast transforming educational system necessitates establishment of a formal and effective mechanism for approval, periodic review, monitoring, evaluation and assessment of quality of the educational programmes in higher education institutions. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) envisages to establish Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) for accreditation of higher institution of learning.
The quality assurance activities are not just limited to collecting data; rather it is also expected to analyze the data for enhancing quality, providing accountability, establishing stakeholder confidence and creating trust in the institution’s performance. Since quality assurance is a continuous process, IQAC is now becoming a central theme in Higher Education, for working towards realization of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance.
IQAC is expected to fulfill the following objectives:
- To develop and implement a strategy for conscious, consistent and continuous enhancement of academic standard and administrative performance of the institution.
- To promote measures for institutional functioning towards quality enhancement through internalization of quality culture, accountability and institutionalization of best practices.
The IQAC shall evolve the mechanisms and procedures for ensuring
- Timely, efficient and progressive performance of academic, administrative and financial tasks.
- The relevance and quality of academic and research programmes.
- Equitable access to and affordability of academic programmes for various sections of society.
- Optimization and integration of modern methods of teaching and learning and the credibility of evaluation procedures.
- The adequacy, maintenance and functioning of the support structure and services for Research sharing and networking with other institutions in India and abroad.
- The ways and means to prioritize need based research and extension activities for the local population.
