This website sets out:

Achieving good governance, at all levels, is critical to achieving the objectives of TEQIP and to improving teaching, learning and research outcomes for all institutions.

The Good Governance Programme identifies a number of key milestones for all institutions:

as part of a long-term committment to improving governance in the light of international best practices.

This website is aimed at all members of governing bodies, at senior leaders and managers and at all others concerned with improving governance.

It has been developed in discussion and with contributions from Indian institutional leaders.


Comments on its content or suggestions on additions will be welcome.

Self-review is a key activity and output of the Good Governance Programme through which institutions can examine their current governance practice. Self-review can be undertaken regularly (for example every 3 -5 years).

Supporting governance development needs of individual governors, governing bodies, institutions and States is a key activity of this and other national and regional initiatives. Another output of the Good Governance Programme is a Governance Development Plan to see how governance development is built into institutional development through clear, timebound action planning.

 

 

Implementing good governance practice is the primary outcome of the Good Governance Programme demonstrated by institutions developing their own governance guidelines which sets out institutional governance practices based on the Good Practice Guide for Governing Bodies. This would include a process and timetable for monitoring and reviewing governance practise.
Sharing experience underpins and supports the Good Governance Programme through good governance learning forums, sharing of institutional case studies of good practice, highlighting common gaps, barriers and issues, and helping institutions to learn from one another.
