IATI Identifier: 44000-P150394
The development objective of the Higher Education Quality Improvement (HEI) Project for India is to improve student outcomes especially of disadvantaged groups in selected higher education institutions and to increase the effectiveness of the higher education system in Madhya Pradesh. There are three components to the project, the first component being grants support to HEIs. The grants provided under this component will also reinforce the system reforms under the project, e.g. (i) increased autonomy and accountability, and will help re-define the relationship between Department of Higher Education, or DHE and government colleges; and, (ii) pursuing National Assessment and Accreditation Council, or NAAC accreditation to benchmark quality, and (iii) a basis for seeking additional resources for quality improvement from national and state governments. The second component is the State Level Initiatives. This component supports strategic interventions to be undertaken by the state to (a) improve the system of financial support through scholarships to disadvantaged and meritorious students, (b) upgrade qualifications and skills of new and existing faculty members, (c) establish a state institute of HE training and research, and (d) extend technical assistance for strategic planning and seeking NAAC accreditation to all government HEIs. Finally, the third component is the Improving system management. The main objective of this component is to provide technical assistance to the DHE, the State Higher Education Council, or SHEC, the Project Directorate, or PD and the HEIs to strengthen their implementation capacity and sector governance and management.
