To ensure quality in higher education, the ministry of HRD and UGC have mandated that all Colleges undergo the process of assessment and accreditation by 2022. The accreditation was to assess the strength and weakness of the institutions in the country. 

Directorate of Higher Education, Nagaland has also taken up the project of encouraging the non-accredidated Colleges to go for NAAC assessment. 

With this objective, Patkai Christian College (Autonomous) has been assigned as mentor College for the non-accredidated Colleges in and around Dimapur.

In this regard, an orientation on ‘NAAC Accreditation of Colleges’ was organised by PCC in collaboration with Directorate of Higher Education, Nagaland at the college campus on July 20.

Underscoring the importance of NAAC assessment, principal PCC, Husazu Epao stated that it will help educational institutes initiate innovative methods and principles of instruction alongside grants for infrastructural development. Epao further said that “Globalization of Higher Education”, and “Nationalisation of Higher Education” were challenging educational issues that need attention. 

The objective of the orientation programme was to reach out to unaccredited colleges. The necessity to get affiliated in NAAC based on latest technology was also discussed at the orientation.

The programme emphasised on the need for extending support to higher educational institutes while underlining that it had made a significant contribution to economic development, social progress and political democracy.

The participants also delved on student migration issues where students faced problem with grades. The participating colleges were encouraged to use the tool of measurement under UGC formula and to mobilise transfer ability and bring programme under CBCS (Choice Based Credit System).
