 Constitution of IQAC CELL:-

The IQAC Cell recognizes the challenges facing education systems and teachers continue to
intensify. In modern knowledge-based economies, where the demand for high-level skills will
continue to grow substantially, the task is to transform traditional models of learning, which have
been effective at distinguishing those who are more academically talented from those who are
less so, into customized learning systems that identify and develop the talents of all students.

This will require the creation of “knowledge-rich”, evidence-based education systems, in which
leaders and teachers act as a professional community with the authority to act, the necessary
information to do so wisely, and the access to effective support systems to assist them in
implementing change.
