IQAC Initiatives

The Internal Quality Assurance Cell of St. Joseph’s College of Commerce strives to bring quality measures into pedagogic processes and other academic activities of the institution. It is in charge of the overall quality control, of all dimensions of the academic activities of the College. Following the third cycle of re-accreditation and in line with the suggestions of NAAC, a twenty member IQAC was newly formed comprising Management representatives, Industry experts and alumni representatives. IQAC is integral to the protraction and augmentation of the quality of an institution post accreditation. In SJCC, the cell is neither a hierarchal structure nor a mere record keeping exercise, but serves a vehicle that streamlines the efforts of the institution in promoting its holistic academic excellence. The genuine efforts of the cell have been central to the development of a system for action to improve the performance of the institution – both academic and administrative, and have been the impetus behind the internalization of quality culture and the institutionalization of best practices that are the precursors of quality enhancement. The IQAC has focused on the following areas for the holistic development of the College.
