Bhopal: Benchmarking has become a mainstay in the process of continuous improvement in higher education.
With the belief that a robust framework for benchmarking higher education quality standards enables contextual comparisons, provides a basis for peer learning and performance improvement, Jagran Lakecity University in association with The Association of the Universities of Asia and the Pacific organised a virtual workshop for AUAP members on an innovative perspective of benchmarking developed by JLU on 23rd January 2022.

Large number of experts and representatives from many universities of Asia and the Pacific participated at this global consultation & deliberations. This workshop called on universities in the Asia Pacific to establish “appropriate benchmarks” in the higher education level.
The consultation focused on an innovative benchmarking framework proposed by Jagran Lakecity University, known as HAPPI model. This framework of ‘HAPPI’ model anchors around five quality pillars of Headway, Academics, Process, People and Impact and emphasises on learning as central to the process.
