Features of the IQAC

The CVRU-IQAC ensures that whatever is done in the University for “Education” is done efficiently and effectively with high standards. In order to do this, the CVRU-IQAC first established its procedures and modalities to collect data and information on various aspects of University’s functioning. Since, quality assurance is a by-product of ongoing efforts to define the objectives of the University, thus, the CVRU-IQAC has a work plan to achieve them and to specify the checks and balances to evaluate the degree to which each of the tasks is fulfilled. Hence, the devotion and commitment of CVRU-IQAC is to the improvement rather than mere organizational control which is the basis for devising procedures and instruments for assuring quality in Dr. C.V. Raman University. Therefore, the right balance between the health and growth of the University needs to be struck. The CVRU-IQAC plays a major role in implementing these functions. For some specific needs, the IQAC derives major support from the already existing units and mechanisms that contribute towards academic excellence of the University.
