The historical city of Serampore- has been adorned by a Women’s College- named Serampore Girls’ College- established in 1981. The primary aim of the college was to establish itself as an institution for the empowerment of the Women of the Society- both in terms of academic and other activities. Our institution has always tried to provide the environment to the students to understand their potential and identity of being- ‘Who I am’ . As Swami Vivekananda stated “We want the education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”.
As per the recommendation of the National Educational Policy 1986 – the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) was established in 1994. NAAC is a governmental organization that assesses and accredits Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). NAAC evaluates the institutions for its conformance to the standards of quality in terms of its performance related to the educational processes and outcomes, curriculum coverage, teaching-learning processes, faculty, research, infrastructure, learning resources, organisation, governance, financial well-being and student services. NAAC proposes that every institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) for quality enhancement and sustenance by incorporating both academic and administrative performance. In reference to this proposal our institution- Serampore Girls’ College has established its first IQAC Body after its first- 1st cycle- NAAC visit in 2007- with Dr Kum Kum Sarkar as its Coordinator. The second cycle of NAAC visit was conducted in the year 2015- with Dr Sarmistha Maitra as IQAC coordinator. With the upcoming NAAC visit- for the 3rd Cycle – the post of IQAC Coordinator was first assigned to Dr Sayanti Talukdar ( Mukhopadhay), but later it was passed on to Dr Upasana Roy Barman. The primordial objective of the IQAC of our institution stands with the guideline provided by NAAC, that is, to establish a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic action in order to improve the academic and administrative performance of the institution.
