In 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. The composition of the IQAC may be as follows -
✔ Chairperson: Head of the Institution.
✔ A few senior administrative officers.
✔ Three to eight teachers.
✔ One member from the Management.
✔ One/two nominees from local society, Students and Alumni.
✔ One/two nominees from Employers /Industrialists/stakeholders.
✔ One of the senior teachers as the coordinator/Director of the IQAC
To develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic action to improve the academic and administrative performance of the institution. To promote measures for institutional functioning towards quality enhancement through internalization of quality culture and institutionalization of best practices.
The role of the coordinator of the IQAC is crucial in ensuring the effective functioning of all the members.
Secretarial assistance may be facilitated by the administration. It is preferable that the coordinator may have sound knowledge about the computer, its various functions and usage for effective communication.
