Srimad Andavan Arts & Science College, right from inception has been rendering educational service and catering to the weaker sections of the society since two decades. The institution has transgressed several milestones. It is accredited with 'A' grade by NAAC in 2007, just 10 years of establishment and reaccredited with 'A' grade in 2013 and also obtained the fresh status of autonomy from the UGC. The IQAC was established after the first accreditation by NAAC in 2007, as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since its establishment the IQAC has been involved in the improvement of the quality sustenance of the institution. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for unswerving and catalytic improvement in the performance of the college. The IQAC makes a significant and meaningful contribution in the post-accreditation phase of institutions. During the post-accreditation period, the IQAC channelizes the efforts and measures of the institution towards academic excellence. IQAC has been a suggestive body to the management on the provision of staff and student support services. IQAC also organizes Faculty Development Programmes in campus and also motivates staff to attend such programmes organized by reputed institutions. The management is receptive to the suggestions (benchmarks) of IQAC and implemented them - like establishment of research center, installation of smart projectors, creation of official email id etc. The IQAC, functions with great zeal to enhance the quality of the institution in all spheres. The IQAC newsletter, collectively presents the efforts of the institution towards academic excellence. We are sure that with the grace of Divya Dampathi of Srirangam and the blessings of our founder His Holiness Srimad Andavan Swamigal, all our endeavours will be successful.
