The prime agenda of NAAC is to Assess and Accredit Institutions of higher learning with an objective of helping them to work continuously to improve the quality of education. Assessment is a performance evaluation of an HEI and /or its units and is accomplished through a process based on self-study and peer review using defined criteria. Accreditation refers to the certification given by NAAC which is valid for a period of five years. NAAC accredits UGC 2(f) & 12B as well as non 2(f) & 12B HEIs. The UGC has recognized this initiative and it has taken a policy decision to direct all Universities to establish IQACs in various universities. In CUG, on 6th August, 2015 IQAC was established and continuously working on quality assessment and monitoring.
Maintaining the momentum of quality consciousness is crucial in universities. Internal Quality Assurance Cell, in fact, is conceived as a mechanism to build and ensure a quality culture at the institutional level. Every University should have an internal quality assurance system, with appropriate structure and processes, and with enough flexibility to meet the diverse needs of the stakeholders. The internal quality assurance mechanism of the University may be called “Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)”. The IQAC is meant for planning, guiding and monitoring Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Enhancement (QE) activities of the University.
The IQAC may channelize and systematize the efforts and measures of an institution towards academic excellence. It should not be yet another hierarchical structure or record-keeping exercise in the University; it would be a facilitative and participative organ of the University. The IQAC should become a driving force for ushering in quality by working out intervention strategies to remove deficiencies and enhance quality.
