UGC Scheme ‘Paramarsh’ for Mentoring Institutions

National Edu News

The Union government has launched ‘Paramarsh’, a University Grants Commission (UGC) scheme for mentoring National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) Accreditation aspirant institutions to promote quality assurance in higher education. The scheme will be a paradigm shift in the concept of mentoring of institution by another well performing institution to upgrade their academic performance and enable them to get accredited by focusing in the area of curricular aspects, teaching-learning and evaluation, research, innovation, institutional values and practices. The scheme will be implemented through a ‘Hub & Spoke’ model wherein the Mentor Institution, called the ‘Hub’ is centralized and will have the responsibility of guiding the mentee institution through the secondary branches, the ‘Spokes’ through the services provided to the mentee for self-improvement. This allows a centralized control over operational efficiency, resource utilization to attain overall development of the mentee institution. The scheme will target 1000 Higher Education Institutions.
