The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) of GFGC, Koppa functions in accordance with the guidelines of University Grants Commission (UGC) and National Action Plan of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). NAAC proposes that every accredited institution should establish IQAC as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. IQAC chiefly aims at evaluating performances, assessment and accreditation, and improving the quality of institutions of higher education. IQAC also aspires to realise its declared ‘vision statement’ in every planned activities. IQAC being a part of the institution works towards enhancing and sustaining quality in imparting education. It also contributes significantly in the post-accreditation phase of any educational institution. During the post-accreditation period it channelizes the efforts and measures of an institution towards academic excellence.
Towards the internalization and institutionalization of quality enhancement, IQAC plays a predominant role. The sense of belongingness and positive encouragement to the constituents of the institution plays a vital role in the success of IQAC. Hence, it is a facilitative and participative voluntary organ of the institution.
