Achievement of IQAC
On inception, the IQAC of the WUB has been working with the aim of enhancing teaching and academic standards of this University. The cell has organized a series of workshops, seminars and training programs for academic and non-academic staff. It is also helping the authority of WUB and its different entities in developing an internal quality culture mechanism through self-assessment. This in turn is creating an opportunity for quality enhancement through systematic collection of data from the various stakeholders concerned within the academical mechanism which then is evaluated with parameters to ensure that the standards as set in are achieved. The self evaluation (as stated earlier) has led to the formation of the Self-Assessment Report. This has made it possible to provide information to the external peer reviewers who necessarily validate the self-assessment. This eventually is leading to achieving accreditation of our different programmes of study at WUB. It may be mentioned here that this process came in action even before receiving fund from the UGC and shall continue without external funding.
