As a post accreditation quality sustenance activity, the National Assessment & Accreditation Council (NAAC) proposes that every accredited institution establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC). Since quality enhancement is a continuous process the IQAC will become a part of institution's system. During the post accreditation period, the IQAC will channelise the efforts and measures of an institution towards academic excellence.
The basic purposes of the IQAC are to ensure continuous improvement in the entire operation of the institution and to assure stakeholders connected with higher education namely, students, parents, teachers, staff and funding agencies and society in general of the accountability of the institution.
Some of the functions expected of the IQAC are:
The IQAC submits an annual report to the NAAC by the end of every academic year about its programs, innovations in curricular design, new collaborative research programs, honors and awards to the faculty, internal resources generated, community services, performances in sports activities, developmental programs to non teaching staff and student achievements and awards.
Through IQAC Bishop Cotton Women's Christian College hopes
to develop a competitive environment for a healthy progress.
