A team of National Accreditation and Assessment Council will visit Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University in the last week of August for assessment and accreditation.
It may be noted that the university was accorded B+ grade in 2002 for a period of five years. It was important to get re-accredited in 2007, however, the university failed to so.
There are several reasons including the accreditation was voluntary then, while today it is compulsory for all the universities, aided and non-aided colleges and institutes across the state. The preparation started in 2010 to apply for re-accreditation. But, there was no record of annual progress report nor were the departments interested in it. Many coordinators and members of NAAC team left the work due to non cooperation from the departments and officers.
Finally, the university started taking help from its retired professors and officers. The university committee for preparations NAAC submitted their Self Study Report few months ago. Dr V L Dharurkar, was recently appointed coordinator of its Internal Quality Assurance Cell.
Talking to newsmen, Dr V L Dharurkar said, they had received NAAC for assessment and accreditation in the last week of August.
He further said that they have made all the preparations for the accreditation and hope for a better grade. Dr Nandkumar Naik, who has been in NAAC coordination committee for the past several years said that they have already sent the SSR and the team will visit the campus in the last week of August. "We have started making a documentary on the development of the university since its inception," he added.
