Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

About Us

The Indian higher education system is on the brink of great transformations to cope with global competence. This system is one of the third largest higher educational systems in the world, comprising 795 universities, 39,671 affiliated colleges, 1,015,696 teaching faculty and 23.764.960 students ( 2013-14). Maintaining quality is a matter of long-term initiative; to reach this long-term goal, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has established detailed guidelines from time-to-time. The establishment of Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) by accredited institutions (after the first cycle) is a major step in pushing long-term quality standards. IQAC in any institution is a significant administrative body responsible for all quality matters.
To satisfy the Road-Map and to attain goals of the Bihar Agricultural University (BAU) Sabour, it is like to evaluate the performance by assessing its activities, and also, the quality up-gradation of education, research, extension works and trainings should be done time-to-time. Therefore, an IQAC must be established in the university. This Cell will work for evaluating the wings of the university in order to improve its quality and the system. It is assumed that the IQAC established in the BAU Sabour will play a crucial and significant role in maintaining quality standards in teaching, learning, research, extension, training and evaluation. It is also taken into consideration that without IQAC, it becomes extremely difficult to manage the quality system of the aforesaid disciplines the university. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the BAU'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.
Maintaining the momentum of quality consciousness is crucial in University. Internal Quality Assurance Cell, in fact, is conceived as a mechanism to build and ensure a quality culture at the institutional level. Every College of BAU Sabour should pass through the IQAC, with appropriate structure and processes, and with enough flexibility to meet the diverse needs of the stakeholders. The lQAC is meant for planning, guiding and monitoring Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Enhancement (QE) activities of the colleges. 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 institution; it would be a facilitative and participative organ of the institution. The IQAC should become a driving force f or ushering in quality by working out intervention strategies to remove deficiencies and enhance quality.
