Message of the Director

The Quality Enhancement Cell is a vital part of administrative and academic structure of Government College University, Faisalabad under the leadership of the Worthy Vice Chancellor. The QEC, Govt. College University Faisalabad always remains active, efficient, vigilant and in the coordination with Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan, for implementation of quality enhancement strategies, moreover it monitors the academic and administrative programs, functions to ensure the quality of education, research and development and makes sure that the internationally accepted standards of quality education are being met and maintained. For enhancing quality culture at Govt. College University Faisalabad, the Quality Enhancement Cell organizes seminars/workshops time to time.

Consequently, the quality culture is flourishing rapidly in the University as there was no culture of maintaining course files and attendance registers of classes taught by teachers. As directed by the Worthy Vice Chancellor, the QEC, conducted many visits of each department to check course files and attendance registers. Gradually this culture has been developed and the faculty members recognized the efforts of QEC.


QEC is established under the guidelines of the HEC to enhance, maintain and monitor quality of higher education. Government College University Faisalabad is among those thirty universities in Pakistan in which QECs have been established since 2006. The Higher Education Commission issued directions for establishment of QEC on Oct. 16, 2006. In October 2006, GCUF authorities constituted the cell according to the guidelines of HEC.
