As per National Education Policy 2020, a good Educational Institution is one in which every student feels welcomed and cared for, where a safe and stimulating learning environment exists, where a wide range of learning experiences are offered, and where good physical infrastructure and appropriate resources conducive to learning are available to all students. Attaining these qualities must be the goal of every educational institution.
Assessment and Accreditation as an external Quality Assurance Mechanism for Higher Education has emerged as the most widely accepted and adopted methodology throughout the world. Accreditation practices fall into two distinct categories.
i)Country-Specific practices (Pertains mainly to the leaders in the quality movement)
ii)Region-Specific Efforts (Collective efforts for extending the quality movement to other countries).
National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) was established by the University Grants Commission (UGC) in 1994 as an Autonomous Institution. The philosophy of NAAC is based on objective and continuous improvement rather than being punitive or judgmental, so that all institutions of higher learning are empowered to maximize their resources, opportunities and capabilities.
