Our college is a mentee institution under the UGC Paramash scheme, “UGC Scheme for Mentoring NAAC Accreditation Aspirant Institutions to promote Quality Assurance in Higher Education”.
UGC Paramarsh Scheme
The main objective of the scheme is to enhance the overall quality of the mentee institutions and Mentoring the Non-Accredited Higher Education Institutions to enable them to get accredited.
The Scheme will be operationalized through a “Hub & Spoke” (H&S Model) where in the Mentor Institution, called the “hub” is centralized having responsibility of guiding the Mentee institution through the secondary branches, the “spoke” which are the additional services provided to the mentee for self improvement. This allows a centralized control over operational efficiency, resource utilization to attain overall development of the mentee institution. Hub can also be conceived as a pool of experts from multiple resources. External members can also be solicited from the industry and can be used as a resource pool. They can make a ground assessment and can have a clear action plan for mentoring.
In order to achieve this objective, UGC has decided to introduce a new initiative for Mentoring the Non-Accredited Institutions, so that every institution can get accreditation by 2022. In view of above a scheme has been designed which provides for Mentoring of Higher Education Institutions by a well performing accredited institution so as to enable them to upgrade their academic performance and get accredited.
