Maintaining the momentum of quality consciousness is crucial in Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs). Internal Quality Assurance Cell(IQAC), in fact, is conceived as a mechanism to build and ensure a quality culture at the University level. The IQAC is meant for planning, guiding and monitoring Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Enhancement (QE) activities of the University.
The IQAC in University was established on 01-08-1999. The day to day activities of IQAC are managed by Director IQAC. Presently, the following are the members of the IQAC Committee:
Since the higher officials of the University i.e., Vice Chancellor, Registrar, Dean Academic Affairs, Dean Research, Dean Students Welfare, Director Planning and Monitoring are the members of IQAC and these are also the major decision/policy makers related to the Academic and Administrative activities of the University, therefore, through them IQAC is deeply involved in the key activities of the University for improving the Academic and Administrative standards of the University.
In the year 2016, 11 member NAAC team had visited the University from 20.01.2016 to 23.01.2016 and scanned the activities and achievements of its various departments to review the accomplishments at micro and macro levels. Disclosing the "prestigious honour" bestowed upon the University, Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Jaspal Singh said that NAAC team had made a special mention about the fact that the University has not deviated from its statutory and fundamental responsibility of promoting the cause of Punjabi language, art and culture. The carrying forward of the utilitarian and qualitative research and use of innovative techniques by various department were the other major factors which contributed towards its retaining the highest status, he said. The grading, he added, was important for any University in ways more than one as it helped it in getting enhanced grants from various funding agencies for the promotion of academic and research activities and establishing tie-ups with prestigious institutions and organizations of national and international standing.
