MS. BEULAH JASMINE RAO, DR. ASHOK KUMAR DHANWAL

Abstract

One of the earliest concepts of mentoring was documented in Greek history when Athena the goddess of wisdom disguised herself as a mentor, a trusted family friend, and assumed responsibility of Odysseus; household for the ten years he was away during his Odyssey, during the time Odysseus was away mentor tutored Telemachus his son to become a successful ruler (Allen, 2006; Holmes, Hodgson, Simari, & Nishmura, 2010).

To address these concerns, the National Policy on Education (NPE, 1986) and the Programme of Action (PoA, 1992) spelt out strategic plans for the policies, advocated the establishment of an independent National accreditation agency. Consequently, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) were established in 1994 as an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission (UGC) with its Head Quarter in Bangalore. The mandate of NAAC as reflected in its vision statement is in making quality assurance an integral part of the functioning of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
