AbstractNAAC intends that the HEIs should promote and sustain quality through various innovative and student-centric initiatives. It has devised IQAC as a specific mechanism to be established in all the institutions. The IQAC has become the centre of all the activities as it introduces, monitors, and evaluates every academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activity in the higher education institutions. NAAC has accepted and authorised IQAC to work as the internal and integral catalyst to ensure change towards quality in colleges. However, the quality of the students poses many serious challenges when we think of developing quality in our institutions. Even the attitude and behaviour of many of the teachers in many colleges situated in remote areas do not show enthusiastic approach towards NAAC. Among all these adverse circumstances it becomes a herculean task for the IQACs to develop quality in the institutions.Still, there is an immense scope in almost all the seven criteria for IQAC to cultivate quality and sustain it as regular practice. IQAC, through its systematic function, can change the negative attitude of all those stakeholders who do not wish to work spontaneously and enthusiastically for the noble cause of quality enhancement in the higher education institution. We need some good teachers as IQAC coordinators and members of IQACs to work as harbingers of the expected change.
