The Role of the Coordinator


The role of the Coordinator of the IQAC is crucial in ensuring the effective functioning of all the members. The IQAC Coordinator may be a senior and competent person with rich experience and exposure to quality aspects. Coordinator may be a full-time functionary or a senior academician/administrator entrusted with additional responsibility as the IQAC Coordinator. Secretarial assistance should be ensured by the administration.


It is essential that the coordinator has a sound knowledge of computers and data management.




Operational Features of the IQAC


Quality assurance is a by-product of the ongoing efforts of an institution to define its objectives and chalk out a work plan to achieve them and also 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 IQAC has to ensure that whatever is done in the institution for higher education is done efficiently and effectively. In order to do this, the IQAC will have to first establish procedures and modalities to collect data and information on the various aspects of the functioning of the institution.




The IQAC Coordinator has a major role in implementing these functions. The IQAC may derive support from the already existing units and mechanism that contribute to the functions listed above.




A functional IQAC and timely submission of the AQAR are the minimum institutional requirements to go in for the second, third and subsequent cycles of accreditation.




To share and interact with the NAAC peer team to apprise about its functioning, progress, and the quality sustenance initiatives undertaken by it.




The AQAR may be part of the Annual Report. It shall be approved by the statutory body/bodies of the HEIs (such as the Syndicate/Governing Council/Executive Council/Board of Management) which will also monitor the quality enhancement measures undertaken by the IQAC.




The IQAC will  create its exclusive window tab on its institutional website for keeping the documents pertaining to NAAC, Peer Team Reports, AQAR, and Certificate of Accreditation. It shall regularly upload/report on its activities and host the AQAR as well.




The login ID for the online submission of the AQAR will be the e-mail ID used for the Institutional Information for Quality Assessment (IIQA).


The AQAR of the preceding year will be submitted to NAAC as per direction of NAAC from time to time.
