Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

and Submission of Annual Quality Assurance Report (AQAR)

in Accredited Institutions



Introduction

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. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the institution’s system and work towards realisation of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. For this, during the post-accreditation period, it will channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its holistic academic excellence.

The guidelines provided in the following pages will guide and facilitate the institution in the creation and operation of the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC). The work of the IQAC is the first step towards internalization and institutionalization of quality enhancement initiatives. Its success depends upon the sense of belongingness and participation it can inculcate in all the constituents of the institution. It will not be yet another hierarchical structure or a record-keeping exercise in the institution. It will be a facilitative and participative voluntary system/unit/organ of the institution. It has the potential to become a vehicle for ushering in quality enhancement by working out planned interventionist strategies to remove deficiencies and enhance quality like the “Quality Circles” in industries.
Objective

The primary aim of IQAC is


  • 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.

c) Provide a sound basis for decision-making to improve institutional functioning;

d) Act as a dynamic system for quality changes in HEIs;

e) Build an organised methodology of documentation and internal communication.


Composition of the IQAC


IQAC may be constituted in every institution under the Chairmanship of the Head of the institution with heads of important academic and administrative units and a few teachers and a few distinguished educationists and representatives of local management and stakeholders.
The composition of the IQAC may be as follows:

1. Chairperson: Head of the Institution

2. A few senior administrative officers

3. Three to eight teachers

4. One member from the Management

5. One/two nominees from local society, Students and Alumni

6. One/two nominees from Employers /Industrialists/stakeholders

7. One of the senior teachers as the coordinator/Director of the IQAC

The composition of the IQAC will depend on the size and complexity of the institution. It helps the institutions in planning and monitoring. IQAC also gives stakeholders or beneficiaries a cross-sectional participation in the institution’s quality enhancement activities. The guidelines given here are only indicative and will help the institutions for quality sustenance activities.

The membership of such nominated members shall be for a period of two years. The IQAC should meet at least once in every quarter. The quorum for the meeting shall be two-third of the total number of members. The agenda, minutes and Action Taken Reports are to be documented with official signatures and maintained electronically in a retrievable format.

It is necessary for the members of the IQAC to shoulder the responsibilities of generating and promoting awareness in the institution and to devote time for working out the procedural details. While selecting these members several precautions need to be taken. A few of them are listed below:


  • It is advisable to choose persons from various backgrounds who have earned respect for integrity and excellence in their teaching and research. Moreover, they should be aware of the ground realities of the institutional environment. They should be known for their commitment to improving the quality of teaching and learning.

  • It would be appropriate to choose as senior administrators, persons in charge of institutional services such as library, computer center, estate, student welfare, administration, academic tasks, examination and planning and development.

  • The management representative should be a person who is aware of the institution’s objectives, limitations and strengths and is committed to its improvement. The local society representatives should be of high social standing and should have made significant contributions to society and in particular to education.


The role of coordinator

The role of the coordinator of the IQAC is crucial in ensuring the effective functioning of all the members. The coordinator of the IQAC may be a senior person with expertise in quality aspects. She/he may be a full-time functionary or, to start with, she/he may be a senior academic /administrator entrusted with the IQAC as an additional responsibility. 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.


Operational Features of the IQAC

Quality assurance is a by-product of ongoing 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 institutional control 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. In order to do this, the IQAC will have to first establish procedures and modalities to collect data and information on various aspects of institutional functioning.


The coordinator of the IQAC and the secretary will have a major role in implementing these functions. The IQAC may derive major support from the already existing units and mechanisms that contribute to the functions listed above. The operational features and functions discussed so far are broad-based to facilitate institutions towards academic excellence and institutions may adapt them to their specific needs.
The institutions need to submit yearly the Annual Quality Assurance Report (AQAR) to NAAC. A functional Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) and timely submission of Annual Quality Assurance Reports (AQARs) are the Minimum Institutional Requirements (MIR) to volunteer for second, third or subsequent cycle’s accreditation. During the institutional visit the NAAC peer teams will interact with the IQACs to know the progress, functioning as well quality sustenance initiatives undertaken by them.
The Annual Quality Assurance Reports (AQAR) may be the part of the Annual Report. The AQAR shall be approved by the statutory bodies of the HEIs (such as Syndicate, Governing Council/Board) for the follow up action for necessary quality enhancement measures.
The Higher Education Institutions (HEI) shall submit the AQAR regularly to NAAC. The IQACs may create its exclusive window on its institutional website and regularly upload/ report on its activities, as well as for hosting the AQAR.
The NAAC Accredited institutions need to submit only the soft copy as word file (.doc/.docx) through e-mail (capuaqar@gmail.com). The file name needs to be submitted with Track ID of the institution and College Name or EC number. For example MHCOGN16601-Samudra Arts and Science College, Taliamegu-Maharashtra.doc or EC_32_A&A_143 dated 3-5-2004-Samudra Arts and Science College, Taliamegu-Maharashtra.doc. The Higher Education Institutions need not submit the printed/hard copy to NAAC. The acknowledgements would be sent to the institutions through e-mail.


The Annual Quality Assurance Report (AQAR) of the IQAC

All NAAC accredited institutions will submit an annual self-reviewed progress report to NAAC, through its IQAC. The report is to detail the tangible results achieved in key areas, specifically identified by the institutional IQAC at the beginning of the academic year. The AQAR will detail the results of the perspective plan worked out by the IQAC. (Note: The AQAR period would be the Academic Year. For example, July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013)

3.1 Initiatives of the IQAC in Sensitizing/Promoting Research Climate in the institution


1. Through augmentation of more research infrastructures for arts, science, and social sciences: The College has most of the basic and high throughput instrumentation as required for classical and advanced research. For the research and innovation and also for patenting of newer products the college has procured newer instruments for WCRNB.

2. Through involvement of students in research projects, publications & participation in seminars:- Students of UG and PG are exposed to the need based research through discussions, research journals, publications, visit to national and regional laboratories and interaction with scientists. Our students are also involved in publications with the help of teachers. Students are encouraged to participate in National & International conferences to present their research work. Students are encouraged to participate in university level research festival “AVISHKAR” and they were rewarded with appreciation both at intra and inter university competitions.

3. Publications in peer reviewed journal: As a routine practice in addition to academics faculty members are encouraged to publish their research articles in peer reviewed journals with good impact factor, which resulted in good citation index of the faculty.

4. Promoting Research through Minor and Major Research Projects: Staff members are involved in research either through funds received from minor or major research projects or RUSA seed money.

5. Providing recognition to college laboratories and faculty: 10 research laboratories are recognized as research laboratory or research places for doing research and are known research departments where as of today 34 students are pursuing their doctoral work and one students has been awarded with doctoral degree.

6. Fellowships to students: Students are given necessary information to obtain fellowships like DST-INSPIRE both at UG and PG level, Rajiv Gandhi Fellowship, post doctoral fellowship, BARTI, etc.
