In order to improve the quality of education in higher educational centres the NAAC has proposed all accredited higher educational institutions to form Internal Quality Assurance Cells (IQAC) to monitor the quality improvement initiatives of the institution. This is to ensure that the long-term objectives of the institution are fulfilled in a time-bound manner.
In accordance with this proposal, the Sacred Heart College has constituted an Internal Quality Assurance Cell consisting of representatives of its stakeholders - the parents, the staff and the management - in order to ensure the continuous improvement in all the operational aspects, as well as to assure its stakeholders of the accountability of the institution of its own quality.
The IQAC ensures the development and application of quality benchmarks/ parameters for the various academic and administrative activities of the college. Besides this, it undertakes the task of disseminating information on the various quality parameters of higher education through organising workshops and seminars on quality related themes. IQAC also is responsible for documenting various programmes as well as the preparation of the Annual Quality Assurance Report (AQAR) to be submitted to NAAC.
