In pursuance of its Action Plan for performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality up-gradation of institutions of higher education, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the institution’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.
Committed to sustain its top position with undiluted ethics, the Swami Vivekananda Institute of Science & Technology, (SVIST) West Bengal has established the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) to institutionalize the process of quality enhancement and sustenance in all the key areas of its delivery.
In view of the national educational reforms, legislative enactments, the UGC/MHRD directives and the challenges put forth by globalization, SVIST actively engages itself in the development and implementation of quality benchmarks in all its key performance areas.
The IQAC is entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring total quality management by ushering in innovations leading to achieving excellence and adoption of intervention strategies for monitoring their successful implementation. Ever in quest for excellence, the IQAC functions to assure institutional accountability with probity to all the stakeholders, funding agencies in particular and society as a whole.
