Strategies and mechanisms used by the IQAC:

  • The IQAC has developed quality benchmarks and parameters for various academic and administrative activities of the institution
  • It monitors the performance of all academic departments by calling for periodic, timely reports on several academic, administrative and financial indicators
  • All departments submit quarterly and annual data on key indicators such as: teaching plans, progress in completion of syllabus, attendance, academic results to the IQAC through the Academic Section of the Dean’s office.
  • Other measures such as publications, training courses, academic activities organized, funded research projects are monitored. Similar reports on patient and hospital data are also compiled. All these data are compiled in the form of an annual report prepared by the Documentation Unit for the IQAC. This is tabled in front of the local managing committee and the Kasturba Health Society Annual meetings every year.
  • The IQAC facilitates the creation of a learner-centric environment conducive to quality education. In view of the need for blended learning, faculty are encouraged to adopt newer techniques like e-learning and trained in this modality.
  • In the beginning of each year, reviews of all academic and administrative data are conducted to plan for infrastructural modifications, budget allocations, and procedural modifications. This is done to optimally use the resources for academic and administrative purposes.
  • The IQAC continuously strives to encourage the pursuit of excellence at all levels in the institution
  • The IQAC collates feedback from all stakeholders (students, parents, faculty, employers), analyses it and shares the results with the management. Action is taken based on this feedback and the results are shared with all stakeholders.
  • The IQAC disseminates information on various quality parameters of higher education and organizes workshops, seminars etc on quality related themes.
  • The IQAC pushes the quality culture agenda in the institution and tries to ensure internalization of the concept of quality
  • The IQAC submits the Annual Quality Assurance Report to NAAC each year and also prepares documents for other agencies such as NIRF
