Structure for Quality Assurance
Banaras Hindu University has been accredited with "A" Grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in the year 2006. The NAAC National Action Plan requires every accredited institution to establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post accreditation quality sustenance measure.
Accordingly, IQAC has been setup in the University with the Vice-Chancellor as its Chairman. The IQAC is the central point in implementation of the Quality Policy of the university and work for quality enhancement and sustenance by developing a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the performance of the university. Accordingly, Department/Faculty/Institute Quality Assurance Committees have been set up to assist and support IQAC.
IQAC establishes procedures and modalities to collect data and information on various aspects of institutional functioning with a view to ensure continuous improvement in all operations of the university. Whereas the Faculty/Institute level Quality Assurance Committees ensure the implementation and feedback with regard to the policies laid down by the IQAC. These efforts aim to assure stakeholders connected with higher education-namely, student, parents, teachers, staff, would-be employers funding agencies and society in general of the accountability of the institution for its own quality and probity.
