Internal Quality Assurance Cell
In pursuance of the National Action Plan of National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore, for performance, assessment, evaluation and accreditation of institutions of higher learning, NAAC proposes that every accredited institution should estab-lish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a pre or post accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality improvement is a uninterrupted route, the IQAC becomes a part of an institutions system and work towards achieving the goals of quality sustenance and enhance-ment. The fundamental duty of the IQAC is to develop a system for alert, reliable, visible and tangible improvement in the performance of institutions. The IQAC makes a important and momentous con-tribution in the pre-accreditation phase of institution. During the pre-accreditation period, the IQAC channelizes the efforts and measures of an institution towards ac-ademic excellence. Central University of Kashmir setup an Internal Quality Assurance Cell in the year 2014. Ever since its establishment, the IQAC is keenly working towards de-veloping excellence alert milieu in the University. For achieving its objectives, the IQAC has conducted several internal meetings on issues, requirements and
The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) shall be established in all Universities/Colleges as per the UGC/ National Assessment Accreditation Council (NAAC) guidelines with the Vice Chancellor, as Chairperson (in case of universities), and Principal, as Chairperson (in case of colleges). The IQAC shall act as the documentation and record-keeping Cell for the institution including assistance in the development of the API criteria based PBAS proforma using the indicative template separately developed by UGC.

achievements of the University, its accreditation and integration of quality in the University processes. From its inception, IQAC has been working hard to prepare the University for NAAC accreditation. Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) is pre-accreditation nodal agency for quality related activities in the University, with the main aim of in-stitutionalising long-term objectives of the University. It is to develop a system to improve the educational and organizational actions by planning involvement approach based on inputs to smoothen the progress of deci-sion-making. IQAC is non-financial resource support and acts mainly on feedbacks to create participatory and facilitative functioning, with an in-tention to build up support and channelize energy for sequencing academic activities and institutionalizing quality enhancement. IQAC is to work for change in the University; to improve level of clarity and focus in its perfor-mance; develop and put together various actions of the University; develop the work culture and accept checks and balances to examine and evaluate the degree to which its objectives are achieved in the University.

Quality of an educational institution can be determined by the number of the internal resources that it posses and also by the efficient usage of these resources to produce productive manpower. Universities are expected to set mission goals and objectives to guide their faculty, administration, staff, and governing bodies in making decisions related to planning, resource allocation, programs, curriculum development, student learning, other outcomes, and institutional improvements which ultimately shall deter-mine the quality of the institution. I am glad that IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) of Central University of Kash-mir committed to implement the set quality parameters of the NAAC at this institute of higher learning, has come up with first issue of IQAC Newsletter. On national and international scene, higher education has proved to be a potent force and one of the major factors responsible for development of nations. For continuous upgradation, per-formance evaluation, assessment, accreditation of institutions, and to uphold, maintain and sustain the quality of education, bodies like IQAC assume great importance. For a university set up the system needs to work towards quality enhancement and suste-nance. Initiatives like IQAC will certainly help the system to work towards realization of the these desired goals. I congratulate IQAC, its Coordinator, all its nodal officers for their efforts and hope to see it grow with efficiency and complete professionalism.

Central University of Kashmir came into being in the year 2009 by an Act of Parliament. The State Government has allotted a good chunk of land in the District Ganderbal and the efforts are on to establish its own campus on the allotted site, despite the fact the University is confronting a number of bottle-necks on this count. The University in a short span of time has become a hub of academic activities and with the help of dedicated and committed senior and young talented faculty and of course dynamic supporting staff has been in a position to carve out its space in the All India map of Higher Education. The University in pursuance of Vision - 2025 adopted by different academic bodies is working for academic expansion and diversification by widening the academic canvass on horizontal and vertical dimensions. The University puts in sustained efforts to create brand equity and offers leadership by way of differen-tiation in all its intellectual pursuits. Accordingly focus is on development of contemporary relevant curriculum and quality assurance. In this regard, the Central University of Kashmir has established Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) to sustain and improve the quality standards in its programmes at Integrated, Masters and Research Degree levels.
