Academic Quality Development Cell

In alignment to National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC)’s pursuance of its Action Plan for performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality up-gradation of institutions of higher education through setting up an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) towards quality sustenance measure, Sri Sri University announces the establishment of the Academic Quality Development Cell* (AQDC) w.e.f Academic Year 2017-18 & onwards.

Quality enhancement is a continuous process; the AQDC will be a part of the institution’s system and work towards realisation of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the AQDC will be to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. For this, during Sri Sri University’s pre -accreditation period, AQDC will channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its holistic academic excellence.
Its success depends upon the sense of belongingness and participation it can inculcate in all the constituents of the institution. It will not be yet another hierarchical structure or a record-keeping exercise in the institution. It will be a facilitative and participative voluntary system/unit/organ of the institution. It has the potential to become a vehicle for ushering in quality enhancement by working out planned interventionist strategies to remove deficiencies and enhance quality like the “Quality Circles” in industries.

AQDC shall evolve mechanisms and procedures for :
a) Ensuring timely, efficient and progressive performance of academic, administrative and financial tasks;
b) The relevance and quality of academic and research programmes;
c) Optimization and integration of oriental with modern methods of teaching and learning;
d) Monitoring and evaluation;
e) Sharing of research findings and networking with other institutions in India and abroad.
f) Collaboration & exchanges
g) Trainings and Inductions etal
