Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)


The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) is a crucial component of higher education institutions that plays a vital role in ensuring and enhancing the quality of education and institutional practices. It is an internal mechanism that focuses on continuous improvement, monitoring, and evaluation of various aspects of an institution’s functioning.

The primary objective of the IQAC is to develop and sustain a quality culture within the institution. It functions as a coordinating body that works towards channelling efforts and measures for academic excellence and overall institutional development. The IQAC ensures that the institution’s activities align with the goals and objectives defined by statutory bodies and regulatory authorities.

The IQAC operates as an independent entity within the institution and works in collaboration with faculty members, administrative staff, students, alumni, and external experts. It promotes a participatory approach to quality enhancement by involving all stakeholders in decision-making processes and fostering a culture of collective responsibility.
