Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC):
In pursuance of its action plan for performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality upgradation of institutions of higher education, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bengaluru proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal
Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a vital part of the institutionís quality assurance system and work towards ensuring quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of its institution. For this, during the post-accreditation period, institutions need to channelize their efforts towards promoting holistic academic excellence including the implementation of peer teamís recommendations.
In Duliajan College IQAC was established in 29th March 2005. Since its inception it has been actively engaged itself for the overall quality enhancement of the college. So far the Cell has successfully accomplished two cycles of accreditation and assessment by the NAAC; the first cycle in 2005 and the second cycle in 2011. At present preparations are going on for the third cycle of accreditation and assessment.
