Profile of VSR and NVR College

VSR and NVR College with its wonderful infrastructure, and imposing buildings located in 21 acres of land is unique. It was the brain child of late Sri Nannapaneni Venkata Rao, well known as Nannapaneni, an impeccable politician, who strove hard to establish this college in 1951 to cater the educational needs of the poor, especially of the weaker sections, who were unable to go for higher education, due to lack of an educational institution in Tenali and Repalle taluqs.After crossing the infantile hurdles, it began to grow by leaps and bounds and witnessed many fast phases of progress and it became a prestigious institution. Generations of students remember Sri NVR the various Presidents Sri G.Ranganayakulu Chowdary, Sri.P.Sree Ramulu, Sri V.Seetharamaiah, Dr.K.Veeraiah, Sri T.Jagan Mohan Rao, Sri B.Rama Kotaiah, Sri K.Venkateswara Rao and Secretaries Sri A.Ahobal Rao, Sri A.Dharma Rao Sri N.Mohan Das. The sudden demise of Nannapaneni proved a havoc and the Govt of Andhra Pradesh renamed the college as VSR and NVR College in recognition of the services rendered by Sri NVR in the field of education. The present Management led by Sri N.Sudhakar and Sri M.Bala Gangadhara Rao is striving hard to regain the place of pride following the foot steps of Sri N.Venkat Rao. Under their able guidance the institution got autonomous status, which will be implemented from the next academic year.
VSR and NVR College is one of the biggest college in the state with its three storied buildings, an auditorium with the latest equipment which can accommodate 1000 members, a Gymnasium, an Indoor stadium, Seminar hall with AC provision, well equipped labs, a spacious Library with thousand of books on various subjects, a vast playground with provision for Cricket and Tennis games, two separate hostels for Boys and Girls, an extension counter of Central Bank, cycle stand, Cement road, planked by Royal palms and beautiful gardens with Bharatha Matha and Mathru Murthy statues, all enclosed by compound wall on four sides.

Section - I
INTRODUCTION
INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE
The V. S. R. & N. V. R.College owes its genesis to Late Nanannapaneni Venkata Rao, the then Chairman of Tenali Municipality for establishing Tenali College. Subsequently, on receipt of a substantial donation from Sri Velgapudi Venkata Subbaiha Rama Krishna, the college was renamed as VVSRK college. After the demise of Nanannapaneni Venkata Rao in 1980, it was given its present name. The College is owned and managed by an Association called ' Tenali College Committee, Tenali. The college was established with the aim of extending education to the backward and downtrodden, so as to enhance the quality of their life. The college initially functioned in a rented building in the Municipal Girls School in the year 1951. It was affiliated to Andhra University for offering F. A. Course. The College, which had a humble beginning in 1951, has grown substantially during a span of 55 years of its existence.

V. S. R.& N. V. R. College, Tenali is a private, aided, co-educational college and now is affiliated to Acharya Nagarjuna University. The College got UGC recognition under 2(f) and 12(b) on March 26, 1975. The college has been conferred autonomous status by UGC during the year 2006 and is planning to function as an autonomous college from the academic year 2006-7.It is located in a semi-urban area Tenali, a Tehesil Headquarters in Guntur District of Andhra Pradesh on a land measuring about 21.5 acres. The College has 1363 students on roll of whom 1264 are UG students and the remaining 99 are PG students. The number of male students in the College is 1022 and the remaining 341 are female students. The college has introduced self-financing courses in Biotechnology, Biochemistry and Computer Science, in addition to its regular UG program in Arts, Science and Commerce and PG Program in Physics, Chemistry and Zoology. It is also offering add-on certificate courses in 17 subjects, which are of two/four weeks duration, as an endeavour towards imparting vocational skill development among students. The College faculty numbering 85, (including 18 temporary teachers), run 11 UG and 3 PG departments. The non-teaching staff of the College are around 48.

Section II
CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
The College, as an affiliated college under Nagarjuna University, is expected to follow a common curriculum prepared for Colleges under its jurisdiction. Further, the Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education has prescribed a common core curriculum for UG studies at Universities/ Colleges. As an affiliated college it does not have much role in designing of curriculum. The College, however, has an indirect role in developing the curriculum since six senior teachers of the College are associated with the curriculum preparation exercise, in the capacity of members of different Boards of Studies of the University.

The goals and objectives of the college are clearly stated in the Bye-Laws of the Society. These are communicated to all constituencies through the updated calendar, which is published annually. The basic philosophy of the institution is ' spread of higher education among the local youth in general, and the poor & weaker section of the Society in particular, to uplift their socio-economic condition by enhancing their general awareness, employability/self-employment potential.' The College takes necessary steps in translating institutional goals into practice. Introduction of add-on Certificate courses in a variety of disciplines and restructured UG Science and Commerce courses is a welcome endeavour in this direction.

At the UG level three programs are offered as under:
Program Subjects available
B. A. History, Economics, Pol.Scienece, Pub. Adm., Sociology, Spl. English and Spl. Telugu
B. Sc.(Gen) Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Botany and Zoology,.
B.Sc. (Rest.) Mathematics, Physics & Comp. Science OR Mathematics, Electronics and Comp. Science.
B.Sc.(Restructured) Chemistry, Biotechnology, Biochemistry
B. Com. General

Post graduate Courses
M. Sc. PG courses were offered very recently. The year of introduction of each PG course in different subjects is given below within brackets :
Physics (2002-3), Chemistry (2004-5) and Zoology(2004-5)

UG courses in Arts are taught in Telugu medium to facilitate rural students attending higher education programmes. Science general courses are offered in Telugu and English. PG courses and B.Sc. (Tech/Rest) are offered in English Medium. The UG courses are unitized on the basis of which lesson plans are made. PG courses are modular in nature. The college, within the framework of University Rules, provides flexibility to students in the choice of subjects. There is limited opportunity for horizontal mobility in the sense that Science stream students of +2 level can be admitted to Arts and Commerce OR students admitted to First Year Science can change over to Arts or Commerce within a stipulated period from the date of admission.

The College permits students to choose courses, which are appropriate for their career choices. There are seventeen popular certificate courses/ add on programs with vocational orientation among the courses offered by the College. Within the curriculum prescribed by the university, the college has additional programmes that help to develop skills, values and physical fitness.

There is evidence to show that the College uses feed back from students to improve institutional functioning. The college on the basis of feedback from students, has introduced some certificate courses and a few self-financing courses with vocational bias. These courses have been designed keeping the market force in view. There are plans to introduce certificate courses of three months duration in as many as 14 subjects which are mainly vocational in nature from the session 2006-07.

CRITERION II: TEACHING, LEARNING AND EVALUATION
The college follows a fair and transparent practice for admission of students. Admission to the UG courses of the College is based on the academic performance in the qualifying examinations. But admission into PG courses is made through common entrance tests conducted by the Nagarjuna University and the University does this centrally. The institution follows the reservation policy of the State Government with a view to extending higher education to the socially and economically disadvantaged students. Soon after admission to a program, the teachers through interaction with the students assess their knowledge and suitability for the particular program on the basis of which they are advised either to continue in the program or switch over to another program. The College organizes Bridge Courses for Science stream students opting for Arts/Commerce courses. Remedial course in English is organized for Telugu medium students especially for the disadvantaged. There is special provision to attend to the learning needs of backward students. Advanced learners are provided enriched opportunities for learning, by organizing special seminars, project work, socio-economic survey and are provided with advanced study materials. The College is also practising some of the advanced instructional methodologies like group presentations, projects, field work, problem solving sessions, debate, quiz competitions etc in many subjects.

The syllabi are unitized. At the beginning of each academic year teachers of each department prepare teaching schedules and the Heads of the Departments monitor the progress and make necessary mid-course adjustments. Teachers are given opportunities for acquiring appropriate professional skills by encouraging them to attend in-service and other teacher development programmes. A good number of teachers have attended a number of national / international level seminar/workshops as participants during the last two years. Some staff members have availed of the facilities given by the College to participate in programmes like the FIP to work for M.Phil. / Ph.D. degrees. Some senior teachers are associated with the Boards of Studies/ Faculties of the Nagarjuna Universities. The college organized 2 UGC sponsored national level seminars during the year 2005-6. The teaching days of the College are 180 out of the 225 working days. The average workload of teachers is about 14-18 Hrs./week.

All students are given a general orientation about the academic schedule of the College and about the methods of evaluation used by it and these are detailed in the college calendar. Some departments of the College make an overall assessment of students on the basis of their performance during the previous year, analysis of examination results of the previous year etc, and adopts suitable steps to monitor the programmes for the succeeding year. The performance of the students is intimated to the parents through letters. The evaluation method has remained traditional. The success rate of students at final UG examination is around 50% to 60 % as evinced from the results of last two years. The low pass out rate is partly due to poor quality of students who get admitted to the college. Out of the total pass outs during the year 2002-3, 30 % secured first Class and next year nearly 52 % passed in First Division.

The lecture method is supplemented by group discussion, project work, field trips and socio-economic survey.. The teachers prepare handouts of study materials and transparencies for OHP.

Teachers are recruited through well defined procedures prescribed by the State Government and Nagarjuna University. This ensures the selection of the best talent available. It was noted that out of 14 teachers recruited during last 2 years 13 are from other institutions, which is an indicator that inbreeding is at minimal level. The rules for reservation, etc. are also followed in teacher selection. The College has the freedom and the resources to make ad-hoc / temporary appointments or invite guest faculties. The selection procedure for such teachers is based on academic record followed by feedback from the students on their lecture.

The College has introduced self-appraisal of teachers and feedback from the students is also taken in to consideration. Teachers are given proper feedback from the appraisals. Students selected at random, are made to assess their campus experience and this is used for improving the functioning of the College.

The team noted with satisfaction that five senior staff members of the college have received the 'Best Teacher Awards of the State Government'.

The teaching innovations are confined to conventional areas like Seminars, Industrial Tours, Team Learning etc.

The College has attempted to establish national linkages with both University Departments and with a few industries. It has a well-equipped computer lab with P-4 PCs for use of different groups of students and staff.

CRITERION III: RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION
The College, as an affiliated College of the Nagarjuna University, was involved in UG teaching until very recently and teaching is treated as the major function. However, with the introduction of PG courses, importance is given to research. The research activities of the College are centered round activities like project work undertaken by PG students or research undertaken by interested teachers. Teachers who intend to do higher research are encouraged to do so by granting them study leave and their classes are either adjusted by the existing lecturers or by ad-hoc teachers.

Out of 85 teachers, 9 have Ph.D. degree and 13 are M. Phil degree holders. Fifteen teachers of the College are now engaged in research and work as part-time scholars. Three teachers received UGC grant for undertaking minor research projects, out of which one is completed and two are ongoing. The faculty members in the departments of Mathematics, Chemistry, Zoology and Commerce have authored a number of Text/ reference Books. Teachers of the departments of Chemistry, Zoology, Physics and commerce have contributed some research papers. However, most of the papers are in Conference Proceedings. Most of the faculty members are involved in preparing question papers for the question bank. The institution is yet to develop expertise in the field of consultancy service.

The College undertakes extension activities in the areas of Janma Bhumi Progam, Clean and Green Program, Pulse Polio Program, Adult Literacy, School Dropout Program, AIDS Awareness Campaign, NERU-MERU and Anti Pollution Program in collaboration with the Government. With NGOs, it organizes programs like Eye camp, Yoga, Blood Donation and solution for various societal issues. There are designated persons in charge of the extension activities of the College. The College encourages the students to take keen interest in extension activities by awarding proficiency certificates to the participating students.

CRITERION IV: INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCE:
During the past 55 years, the College has developed necessary infrastructure and learning resources to conduct academic programmes , extra and co-curricular activities. It has been possible for the college to mobilize resources from UGC, State Government, Alumni and local philanthropists/ industrialist for developing its infrastructure. The College has an impressive three-storied building to perform different functions. The ground floor, with a carpet area of 84181 sq.ft., houses the auditorium, gymnasium , hostels for boys and girls , additional class rooms, vehicle parking sheds and facilities for sericulture . The major class rooms, library, laboratories, computer center and administrative wing are located in the second and third floors of the building, each floor having a carpet area of 35,800 sq. ft., In these two floors there are 90 rooms and 27 laboratories. The classrooms are spacious and well ventilated. The laboratories are reasonably well equipped. Biotech and Biochemistry Laboratories need to be upgraded. The college has a canteen, adequate facilities for sports and games like play fields, an indoor stadium and Gymnasium, common room for boys and girls, extension counter of Central Bank, Co-operative stores and facility for pay-phone. The College has not felt the necessity of an honorary doctor for its health center in its campus, as it is situated in the vicinity of a Missionary Hospital. There is also an active Cooperative Credit Society for the staff. The college has constructed a Pyramid structure for meditation which has helped some students to improve their power of concentration.

The library, which is located in the second floor has a carpet area of 6300 sq. ft is a repository of nearly 42300 books out of which nearly 1500 are reference books and 6000 are text books. It subscribes towards 32 Journals (Indian), one foreign journal, 20 periodicals and one refereed journal. Annually, on the average 300-400 books are added to the library. It has open access system for the students and is partly computerized. The library is equipped with reprographic facilities. It has about 100 educational VCDs and appropriate equipment to play the same. It has stored a large number of Compendium of articles from newspapers/ magazines/ journals. The library can accommodate nearly 200 students at any given time. It functions from 9 A.M. to 5 P. M. on working days and from 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. on holidays. Prior to examinations, it remains open from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. It was noted that the library facilities are open to public with prior permission, which is a welcome step. The library automation needs to be greatly improved. The software developed by INFLIBNET may be used. In addition to the central library some departments have departmental library with limited number of books, which may be strengthened in course of time.

The College has appointed a supervisor for maintenance of the infrastructure and there is an Amenities Committee to take care of minor repairs. The management provides fund for the upkeep of the building. The infrastructure facilities of the institution are put to optimum utilization by allowing its premises to be used by outsiders for yoga, sports and athletics, walking, and for conducting examinations of different organizations like Banks, Railways and LIC on Sundays and holidays. The academic facilities of the institution are also used by other external agencies such as the distance education centers of Nagarjuna University, Andhra University and Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Open university. In addition to sweepers and gardeners, the teachers and students are also actively involved in maintaining the College campus clean and beautiful.

The sports and games programmes of the College are carried out by the Department of Physical Education, which is manned by a well-qualified lecturer (M.P.Ed.). A good number of students of the college have participated at State level, Regional level and National level sports and games competition. Outstanding sports persons are given various incentives to pursue education.

There is a boys hostel with a capacity for 200 students and a womens hostel for 40 students. Since most of the students are from the local area, there is not much demand for hostel accommodation.

A Central Computer Facility is available. Some Departments have been provided with computers. Most of the computers are of P-4 configurations. The Computer Center is accessible to students and teachers, as per their requirements.

There is a well-equipped workshop in the college for repair/fabrication and maintenance of minor equipment. The college has a full time electrician.

CRITERION V: STUDENT SUPPORT AND PROGRESSION
A considerable number of students of the College progress to higher studies and/or to important positions in public life and in Government Services. The dropout rate is around 13 % while the progression to employment / further study is about 50%. The dropout rate is partially due to the fact that many students who join science degree programmes discontinue when they get admission to vocational courses like medicine, engineering, etc. The college has produced a large number of outstanding civil servants, lawyers, journalists, doctors, engineers, sportsmen, sports stars, business men and industrialists. As per the SSR the number of candidates qualified at GATE during last five years is about 10, that in GRE is 12, and TOEFL is 15. One has qualified at Civil Service Examination. The College collects feedback from students and the feedback is used for improving the performance of the institution.

The College prepares an updated Prospectus each year. This contains all basic information about the working of the College. The College gives various kinds of scholarships, grants etc., in addition to the usual state-sponsored scholarships, merit scholarships, etc.

There is an Employment Cell in the College, under the charge of a Placement Officer. The cell sensitizes the students to various job opportunities as well as scope for further studies. Last year as many as 49 students of the college got employed in different sectors through the active guidance of the cell. There is an efficient Alumni Association. It provides financial support to the college and helps the college in keeping its contacts with former students .

The criteria and policies for admission are made known to students through the college prospectus. The College has provided facilities for a wide range of recreational and leisure-time activities. This covers all the usual indoor and outdoor games. Audio-video facilities are available to students. The College also conducts cultural programmes, debate competitions etc. Other highlights under this head include extension lectures, remedial coaching, proctor system, parent-teacher Association, conduct of study tours, industrial visits, career guidance, industry-interaction, book-bank facilities, use of suggestion boxes etc.

CRITERION VI: ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT
The Peer Team found that the College is following a transparent and participatory management practice. The College has an effective mechanism for coordinating and monitoring its working. There is an Academic Coordinator who does liaison work with the University. Important policy decisions are taken in consultation with all the constituencies, i.e, staff, students. There are number of Committees to assist the Principal in the decision making process . There is a well-built mechanism to supervise the work of non-teaching staff. The college organizes computer literacy training program for its non-teaching staff who are encouraged to move towards office automation. There is provision for conducting internal audits. Special staff committees plan the academic and co-curricular activities. However, much remains to be done in regard to office automation.

The Government and the University prescribe the tuition and other fees. Only the concerned authorities can make changes. For self-financing courses the fees levied by the college is lower than other colleges. The expenditure also is governed by Government rules. The College has an Internal Audit mechanism to control its financial operations. It operates a number of welfare programmes like loans through Cooperative Credit Societies, Canteen Services, Bank loan on guarantee by the management, Endowment Scholarship to Students , various incentives to outstanding students, group insurance for students, Health check-up for students etc. There is a Grievance Redressal Cell to deal with student, staff and parent grievances. Appeals after scrutiny by the cell are referred to the Principal or the Management, depending upon the nature of the issue to be resolved.

To a limited extent, internal resources are generated by a few self financing courses and through the Alumni Association. Since the infrastructure and academic facilities of the college are used by other agencies, the college may consider levying a fee for these purposes.

Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The college has a well-built mechanism for internal quality check. Quality Assurance cell assesses the performance of the individual teachers and takes appropriate measures for enhancing the quality of education. The Principal regularly monitors the Annual Academic Plans of the teachers. The self-appraisal report of the faculty also ensures quality assurance. quality of studentsperformance is assessed through assignments, unit test and end of term tests. The college aims at the all-round development of the students and it takes extra care to impart social, economic and cultural values.

The college has established linkages with various University Departments and some industries. There are a number of add-on programmes to equip the students with vocational skills while pursuing a degree. Recently introduced self- financing courses in emerging areas like Biotechnology, Computer Science, Biochemistry are expected to go a long way in meeting the market force for employment.The College also imparts value-based education and inculcates civic responsibilities among the students. In order to develop all round personality, the students are encouraged to participate in debate, group discussion, various cultural activities and are trained in Communication Skill and personality development. Teacher Guardian system (Proctor) helps the students both in academic aspect as well as in solving personal problems.

The gap between the college and the community is bridged through programs like Adult literacy, health camps, Clean and Green , Environmental Awareness, AIDS awareness and blood donation etc.which are periodically conducted in the neighborhood.
