NAAC certification is a measure to evaluate and then guarantee a standard of education provided in higher institutions across the nation. The University Grant Commission (UGC) has issued a decree stipulating that every university and faculty must get certification by the council called NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council).

NAAC accreditation focuses on improving the quality parameter of education.

Unlike the traditional educational system, NAAC aims to improve the overall development of students by helping them inculcate skills & knowledge via their education.

Institutions with NAAC accreditation fall under the category of institutions that offer “Quality Education” to students. Therefore, institutions that aim to maximize the student learning outcomes by ensuring the best practices must try to attain NAAC accreditation.

Role of NAAC Accreditation in Higher Education

Education is the most important pillar of a nation for its development.

As a result, the excellence and relevance of programs offered by the university must have a standard.

As in every arena of business, the method of improving quality has a predefined set of measures. Colleges must find and recognize additional requirements to satisfy them per the international standards.

The role of NAAC Accreditation is to bring the best in every institution and help institutions grow across research, innovation, student success, governance & more.
