High credentials to benefit the spectrum of MU stakeholders

The NAAC accreditation is a system of performance evaluation for higher education institutes and it is been labelled as one of the mandatory pre-requisites, if a university wishes to apply for funds from Central agencies. Reportedly, MU has received this accreditation after 4 years of wait, as it failed to apply for re-authorisation of the same, after its expiry in 2017.

MU had received a 3.05 score and an 'A' grade in 2012. Since then, the varsity has improved upon its curricular and infrastructural aspects along with institutional values and best practices, to have been awarded the new credentials.

Further, the NAAC grades a college on the basis of several factors, including performance in educational processes and outcomes. Components such as curriculum coverage, teaching-learning systems, faculty, research, learning resources, organisation governance, financial well-being and student services are also accounted for.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Mumbai, reportedly stated that this achievement will go down as an important event in the University's 164 years of legacy. He also extended a special appreciation to the stakeholders involved during the creditation process, adding that the A++ grade will benefit all those associated with the varsity, in any capacity.
