Quality Enhancment Cell/Institutional Researchis a broad category of work done at colleges and universities to improve informed campus decision-making and planning in educational institutes’ core departments.

IR/QEC supports institute-wide strategic planning; manages and coordinates the majority of campus survey development and research and provides reports on management information and policy analysis.

Institutional researchers IR/QEC officials collect, analyze, report, and warehouse quantitative and qualitative data about their institution's students, faculty, staff, curriculum, course offerings, and learning outcomes. They are involved in collecting and reporting information to government bodies, to the public, and various college guide publishers.

The IR/QEC department has to provide an absolutely unbiased judgment by providing an open forum, easy access and clear assessment criterion. Hence, it works in isolation from all core departments. IR/QEC’s subsequent intention is to link the academic, administration and social community together in order to achieve an environment of mutual trust and academic freedom.
