The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) has been established in Arulmigu Palaniandavar Arts College for Women, Palani in 2004 and since its inception it has been an integral part of the college, working towards realizing the goals of quality enhancement. It strives to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in different aspects of functioning of the college.

Having crossed through three cycles of accreditation process by NAAC, the IQAC knows its responsibility in adopting the innovative strategies in teaching, learning, evaluation and fine tuning of the administrative processes. It organizes orientation programmes for faculties, non-teaching and administrative staff members and extends support for organizing various academic activities. It facilitates documentation of the activities conducted by the departments. Assurance is given to the stakeholders of the accountability and transparency in the quality management system of the institution.

A continuous follow up has been made on infrastructural resources of the college to assure adequate, appropriate and better facilities and provide conducive and enabling environment for teaching, learning and research. The Cell interacts with the Student Council, Parent’s Committee and Alumni Association and receives feedback to be used in planning its strategies and maintaining transparency, objectivity and accountability in the teaching-learning evaluation processes.

NAAC through its processes of accreditation is setting the road map for every institution to tread the path for pursuit of excellence. Following the map, the college has been taking strategic strides to become a leading institution by imparting quality education to the rural women, hailing from the villages in and around the Palani town.
