Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

Bhandarkars' Arts & Science College, Kundapura, sponsored by the Academy of General Education, Manipal, is a first grade college of Arts, Science and Commerce. The college was established in 1963 in order to meet the growing demand for the University education and to make it available nearer home so that the economically less fortunate sections of the society may academically equip themselves better to face challenges in the age of science, technology and international commerce. The college aims to instill a sense of discipline and purpose, the cultivation of proper attitudes and an awareness of various responsibilities which the youth would be called upon to shoulder in their lives. In addition, a stress on civic virtues and a sense of social values are among the things sought to be impressed upon those who seek admission here. The College was re-accredited 'A' by NAAC in the year 2011.
