Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) is an essential part of a university to ensure quality of learning and training programs in higher education. In order to maintain the quality of higher education, it was first adopted in 1900 in the United States of America. As a second country Japan adopted this method in 1946. Then other countries of the world started following this process. The Ministry of Education of Bangladesh constitutes the Quality Assurance Unit (QAU) under Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP), University Grants Commission of Bangladesh in 2014. With the financial support of the World Bank, IQAC has been set up in different public and private universities. Bangladesh Open University starts its journey with IQAC in February 13, 2017. Presently the government is patronizing the establishment of this cell to upgrade academic activities of this university. It will gradually become a part of the university's own activities. The general objective of IQAC is to promote a quality assurance culture within the university. The specific objectives of IQAC are institutionalizing the quality assurance culture in accordance with national Quality Assurance (QA) guidelines and international practices; ensuring that the university’s quality assurance procedures are designed following the QAU guidelines and national requirements; developing, maintaining and enhancing quality of education and people’s perception in favor of the university through consistent quality assurance practice and performance; building image of the university with confidence of the stakeholders ensuring transparency, accountability and good practices in all aspects of management; and preparing the university to meet the external quality assurance assessment and accreditation requirements. The cell also includes setting developmental goals and indicators of improvement in the educational and administrative functions of the organization. At the same time, the cell will also accept the views of the organizations regarding successful implementation and improvement of the plan to achieve those goals. Various problems will be identified by evaluating the overall features of the university's degree programs, curriculum, methods of teaching, teacher training, research activities and administrative activities. Based on these, a strategic plan will be adopted and implemented for the development of education and research.


Message of Director

The Institutional Quality Assurance Cell has been set up in the Bangladesh Open University at the fourth round. I hope that this newly formed Cell will play an important role in ensuring quality of education, research and administration. The main goal of this cell is to introduce the culture of quality assurance. In this case, I wish co-operation of all concerned.
