Structure for Quality Assurance

Dr. C. V. Raman University has been accredited with "B+" Grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in the year 2017. The NAAC National Action Plan requires every accredited institution to establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post accreditation quality sustenance measure.

Accordingly, IQAC has been setup in the University with the Vice-Chancellor as its Chairman. The IQAC is the central point in implementation of the Quality Policy of the university and work for quality enhancement and sustenance by developing a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the performance of the university. Accordingly, Department/Faculty/Institute Quality Assurance Committees have been set up to assist and support IQAC.

IQAC establishes procedures and modalities to collect data and information on various aspects of institutional functioning with a view to ensure continuous improvement in all operations of the university. Whereas the Faculty/Institute level Quality Assurance Committees ensure the implementation and feedback with regard to the policies laid down by the IQAC. These efforts aim to assure stakeholders connected with higher education-namely, student, parents, teachers, staff, would-be employers funding agencies and society in general of the accountability of the institution for its own quality and probity.

Mechanism of Quality Assurance

The notion of quality underpinning the framework adopted by the university is of fitness for purpose ie. The institution, its components and activities have quality if they conform to the purpose for which they were designed.

The Quality Policy is applied to all Institutes, Faculties, Colleges, Departments, Schools and academic, administrative and support staff at the university through :

  1. Internal quality assurance mechanism-continuous
  2. External quality assurance mechanisms-periodic

The university shall time to time evolve quality management framework for all institutes, Faculties, Colleges, Departments and Schools. Regular internal audits will be conducted to ensure that the Quality Policy is implemented.

Internal quality assurance

IQAC will develop a quality manual describing various benchmarks and the processes designed to achieve them. The manual would describe the QA system. The set of guidelines, codes of good practices and procedures to be implemented by the various units.

Based on the prescribed guidelines, each unit of the university would develop its own internal quality assurance mechanism. The mechanism shall be coherent with quality assurance framework set forth in this policy and approved by the IQAC, to evaluate the quality of teaching programmes and courses, academic staff, teaching and learning experience, student assessment, internal moderation, support services, resources and facilities, and research and programme review processes.

External quality assurance

In order to ensure that high quality standard is maintained in the university, periodic assessment of quality shall be arranged by such external agencies, as NAAC or any other agency suggested by the Government of India from time to time.
