THE QUEST FOR QUALITY AT Manav Rachna Educational Institutions (MREI) is as old as the Institution itself. It is a way of life that governs every aspect of its dynamic spectrum of activities. Life at MREI is a journey of intellectual and personal discovery through highly innovative and flexible horizons. Across its 19 year saga, MREI continues to make new inroads into Quality Education while carrying forward the mantle of exdellence with the philosophy of Manav Rachan ‘Vidyantariksha’ (the reality of inner vision or root of all knowledge).
Quality Education began as a movement at manav Rachna that gained momentum with the passing on of years. It first took shape in the hands of Founder Visionary Dr. O.P. Bhalla, a dynamic educationist and philanthropist, whose mission was to create ‘better human beings’, the abiding motto that governs all Manav Rachan instiutions. Till this day, the legacy continues in fervor and spitit as MREI stands tall among the premier institutions of the country, committed to a culture of quality that has became its raison d’etre.
At manav Rachna International Unimersity (MRIU), THE NAAC ‘A’ grade accreditation was awarded on the basis of seven parameters and 32 key aspects of the quality. These included curriculum, teaching-learning processes, research output, consultancy and extension, industry collaborations, learning resources, student support and progression, governance standards and infrastructure quality. The University was also lauded for value-added courses, examination system, university-industry interface, educational leadership, innovations and social responsibility.
The award of ‘A’ Grade by NAAC has unleashed a fresh wave of motivation among the faculty and the administrative staff to take the University to greater standards of exellence. MRIU has effective knowledge partnerships with leading companies like Infosys, Sukam, IBM, JBM, NDTV Worldwide, KPMG and other skill development agencies and is looking to further grow and diversify its linkage with industry to enhance student employability.
The University focuses not on only providing quality Education in contemporary domains but also strives to make students independent in thought and action through application orientation in its academic programmes. The Quality standards of the University are driven and monitored by its Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) with the participation of all stakeholders. IQAC regularly organizes faculty and staff development programmes to keep them updated in their respective domains. MRIU has close association with international and national quality bodies including the Amercan Society for Quality, Quality council of India, Quality Circle Forum of India and the Institution of Engineers.
Dr. Prashant Bhalla, President, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions, rightly observes, “Quality is a journey on the path of continuous improvement which has no last milestone,’’ summing up in essence the continuous striving for excellence which is the hallmark of MREI.
