As per the guidelines of UGC & NAAC, Bangalore, the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) was constituted from June, 2004. The primary task of the IQAC has been to develop a system for conscious, continuous, consistent and catalytic improvement in the performance of staff and students and in the governance of the organization. The IQAC of our college plays an active role in developing, sustaining, improving and enhancing the parameters of quality and institutional excellence.

The IQAC acts as the promoter and guardian of quality in every aspect of the campus life. Redefining and sustaining quality benchmarks and best practices has become the foremost duty of IQAC. Constant and conscious attempts to promote a culture of quality in the academic ambience of the institution call for a continuous quest for excellence on the part of all the stakeholders in the educational enterprise. Excellence, as Aristotle would say, is not an act but a habit. Attitudes dictate the approaches to be adopted for best results. Right approaches determine the attainment levels.
