The UGC is set to establish quality assurance units (QAU)
The University Grants Commission is set to establish quality assurance units at all public and private universities, said UGC Chairman AK Azad Chowdhury.
The unit will monitor quality of teaching, research activities and students and submit annual performance reports to the vice-chancellors, the UGC and the Education Ministry.
“To improve quality in the country’s higher education appears to be the main challenge now. The quality assurance unit will contribute vastly to meeting that demand,” AK Azad Chowdhury said. “It will also help create competition among the universities for the sake of improving quality.”
The unit would be established under the UGC’s Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project financed by the World Bank.
