“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
The Internal Quality Assurance Cell, established on July 02, 2007,following the first cycle of assessment and accreditation of Durgapur Government College by the NAAC Peer Team in 2007, bridges the academic and administrative wings of the College, framing and implementing policies to ensure steady and sure steps to stay in sync with the demands of a fast-changing world in which the stakeholders move and work. This dynamic autonomous body pursues the ever-shifting threshold of excellence through continuous interaction with all the academic departments, the college administration, the students and other stakeholders to oversee that all the wheels turn efficiently to help in the forward march of the college. It relies on feedback from all stakeholders to review and revise its policies as and when the need arises. It takes on its shoulders the onus of creating an ambience in college conducive to teaching-learning, research work and academic exchange, cohesion among various groups, smooth functioning of the college administration and rolling out activities involving stakeholders to spread awareness about gender, caste, environment and our culture besides ensuring the participation of members of the staff, both teaching and non-teaching, in faculty development and skill enhancement programmes.

It ensures that the Academic Calendar for each academic session balances various types of activities contributing to holistic development of students. With a focus on inclusive education and encouragement of innovative teaching methods especially in a digital age, the IQAC is on its toes round the year to offer the best available infrastructure to its stakeholders.
