Director, DYIMS Institute

As the Director of Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) at DYIMS, QEC’s aim is to continually improve upon and promote the highest quality academic programs through regular periodic reviews. QEC team members provide support, guidance, training, and capacity building to faculty and staff for the implementation of the Academic Quality Framework.

QEC runs a three-tier program. The Self-Assessment Report (SAR) is the first step of a program review. It is the critical self-analysis of a program or entity, based on documented evidence and completed by the program or entity itself prior to the external peer review. After a program or entity has completed its self-assessment process and produced a full SAR that has been reviewed by the Quality Enhancement Cell Facilitators (QECF), they will recommend to the Provost to proceed to the next step of the Quality Enhancement process: conducting an external peer review.

Lastly, within 6 months of the Peer Assessment Report (PAR), the program or entity will prepare a Revised Improvement Plan based on their initial Improvement Plan and the comments made by external peer reviewers. It includes best practices and recommendations mentioned by the external peer reviewers, intended outcomes, actions taken or to be taken to achieve them, the target date for completion, the responsible party, the supervising party, success indicators, and evaluation of impact.

The Honourable Chairman, BOGs is strongly committed to improving the standard of education and training of the students and enhancing the teaching quality of faculty members by providing all the necessary facilities within the limited available resources. He is trying hard to bring the DYIMS to par with most of the international professional Institutes.

The strategic objectives of QEC are to: 1. Instil a culture for quality enhancement of academic programs at DYIMS. 2. Build capacity to support quality enhancement within entities. 3. Harmonise the variety of quality assurance and improvement processes being used across DYIMS.

I look forward to welcoming you here.
