   Karnatak University has diligent College Development Council (CDC) established in the year 1983 with the assistance of the UGC. The CDC is headed by a full time Director appointed by the University Syndicate. The CDC plays a key role in the establishment and development of Constituent and affiliated Colleges of the University and functions under the joint guidance of University authorities and University Grants Commission (UGC). It provides link between the UGC, University and Colleges. It looks after the development of as many as 257 Colleges coming under the purview of CDC.
   There has been tremendous growth in the number of institutions that the CDC is handling. These Institutions must meet the changing needs of the society. Therefore, superior quality becomes the vision of the CDC. In pursuit of excellence, CDC makes all the efforts to manage the quality in totality, to meet the needs of the student population and other stake holders such as parents, society, Government and institution managers/promoters.
    The CDC knows that the improvement takes place by improving the people and the processes. Therefore, it takes all steps to improve the working environment of the institution in the light of changing requirement of the society. It also knows that there is no end to the quality improvement activities. With these ideas in mind, it has made enough progress in the achievement of quality, giving due respect to quantity also.
   To fulfill these objectives, the college development council may consult with the other Bodies of the University concerned. The CDC takes all such steps that may fit-in for the promotion, co-ordination and raising the standards of higher education in colleges. The Director is assisted by administrative and supporting staff. One of the main functions of this section is to provide affiliation to the eligible colleges in the jurisdiction of KUD.
