The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is proud to be a partner with the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in bringing out the ‘Quality Assurance in Higher Education: An Introduction’, a volume which aims to address the needs of the generalist and the specialist; the policy maker as well as the practitioner. It also signals the expansion of NAAC’s mandate from an organization which assesses and accredits institutions to one that would promote a culture of quality. It is here that the interests of COL and NAAC converge and we hope that this Module will move beyond India and will have relevance in other jurisdictions across the Commonwealth.
