Media coverage of DAV Centenary College, Faridabad Haryana, Haryana
NAAC report of DAV Centenary CollegePreface:
The DAV Centenary College was established in the year 1985 by the DAV College Managing Committee, New Delhi, with an aim to provide a whole some education to the youth and mould them into responsible citizens of the Country. The College spread over an area of three acres is affiliated to M.D.University , Rohtak and has 7 UG and 2PG courses of study. The College is recognized by UGC under 2f and 12B in the year 1992, and during the 9th Plan received a grant to the tune of 10 lakhs.
The College initially was an undergraduate College offering courses in Arts, Science and Commerce but was upgraded to a PG college since 2000 with the introduction of M.Com Keeping in pace with the market requirements, the College started the B.B.A. in 1995 and the B.C.A. course in the year 1998, the M.Com. Course in the year 2000, and the M.Sc. Computer science course in the year 2002.
The college also introduced three vocational subjects in Commerce stream i.e. Tax Procedure and Practice, Advertising, Sales Promotion and Sales Management and Marketing. To cope up with the dwindling resources and the changing times, the courses like BBA, BCA, B.Sc. computer applications and the two PG courses were introduced on Self-financing basis.
To cater to the requirements of the 1917 (516 girls and 1401 boys) students enrolled in the various courses run by the College, the Management has employed 55 faculty, 13 Technical and 24 Administrative staff. Out of the 55 faculties working with the college 20 are permanent and 32 on temporary basis and 3 part times. While 95% of the salary component of the permanent faculty is met from grants received from the State Govt. the remaining is met from the grants provided by the management. The salary of the part time and temporary staff and that of the technical staff is met out of the money received from the self-financing courses.
The Dayanand Anglo Vedic Society under whose aegis the College is running is one of the oldest charitable educational organizations in the country and has more than 600 educational Institutions under its umbrella spread through out the country providing various levels of Education starting from schools to Professional education Colleges.
Criterion wise inputs
Criterion I : Curricular Aspects
The institution offers post graduation in Commerce (M. Com) and Computer Science (M. Sc.). At the under graduate level, B. Sc. in Chemistry, Physics, Computer Application and Computer Science, BBA, BCA, B. Com with Computer Applications and BA with Mathematics, History, Geography, Economics, Political Science, Hindi, Sanskrit and English, Commerce with Computer Applications, BCA. The BBA and B. Com/B. Sc. with Computer application make the programmes career oriented. During the last 5-6 years, the college has endeavored to provide to the students multiple choices of career-oriented programmes.
The college has no flexibility with reference to content of course syllabi as it has to rigidly follow the pattern and content as prescribed by the parent University. Introduction of any new programme takes about 10 to 12 months after its conception. It seems that the College has to adhere to the prescribed courses for the programmes and does not have any opportunity to innovate on any programme or the annual examination conducted by the University to which it is affiliated.
Interdisciplinary approach is not available in the present set up of the parent University but, through various subject societies and clubs functioning in the college the students get an opportunity for interdisciplinary interaction and non-formal learning.The Principal being on various Committees of the University should take a proactive role and try to bring in the innovation and the desired change in various Curricular aspects.
Criterion II : Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Selection of students for admission is done through their merit in academics. The cut off percentage for admission in college is between 35 to 45 percent for various courses. At the beginning of the academic session the College prepares an academic calendar, which is made available to all the teachers and the students.
The assessment of students is carried out by two class tests and assignments prescribed by the University. The College also intermittently conducts class tests for continuous assessment of the students. The process of continuous assessment of the students through class tests should be strengthened and streamlined by formalizing the total procedure.
Apart from the academic calendar, every department prepares its teaching plan before the start of the session .An appropriate monitoring mechanism would help the College in proper implementation of the same. The syllabi are unitized for comprehensive instructions and evaluation. The syllabus of each course is divided into three parts. Periodic review is carried out by the Principal and in case of any shortcomings suitable remedial measures are taken by giving specific time limit to the concerned teacher to overcome these.
The advanced learners are given free sets of books on loan from the library. The teachers also give such students additional attention. The administration keeps a vigil on the academic progress of students. Remedial classes are held for the under performing students of the Socially weaker sections by holding extra classes.
The teaching is mostly the traditional Chalk and Talk method. A few of the teachers are using the OHP. With the type of available recourses, the teachers should be encouraged to use the electronic media for classroom teaching/interaction. The assignments given to students necessitate the use of journals from library. 180 teaching days and 220 working days are observed in the college.18 faculty members have attended orientation and refresher courses in Academic Staff Colleges of various Universities.
The courses are divided into three terms and the progress of the students is assessed through the terminal examinations. The annual and in some cases semester examinations held by the parent University are the means of final evaluation for all the students. The overall pass percentage of the College is comparable with the University pass percentage and is higher than that of the overall University pass percentage.
Criterion III - Research, Consultancy and Extension
Out of 20 regular full time teachers, 6 hold a Ph. D. degree and 11 have obtained M. Phil, whereas out of 32 temporary teachers, only 3 are Ph. D and the rest have a PG degree. The college encourages teachers to pursue research for Ph. D. degree by granting study leave to the aspirants. Blood Donation camps, AIDS awareness and Environment awareness activities are the extension work carried out in the college. Women's Cell, which is functional in the college, collaborates with local NGOs like "SAKSHI' and "Rashtriya Chetna Shakti Foundation' for women empowerment and legal literacy programmes for students. Coaching classes for various competitive examinations are also conducted in collaboration with the "Rashtriya Chetna Shakti Foundation'. Personality Development classes are conducted in the college which is an appreciable decision.
While some of the teachers in the Commerce and Hindi departments are publishing books and attended a few Seminars, none of them is active in research. With a few of them actively delivering talks on the radio and television, it is required that the aptitude for research be developed among the staff. The college may think of organizing extension lectures by eminent personalities, so that the students and the teachers benefit from it.
The College has one girls and one boys NCC (navy) units and one NSS boys unit. The college through the NSS and the NCC units organizes programmes/events related to the community development and social work. Every year at least one of the NCC cadets is selected for participation in the Republic Day Celebrations at New Delhi.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The College building is constructed in a plot of 3.00 acres and has separate blocks for library and PG classes. The College premise is maintained by funds generated from student's fees, self-financing courses and grants from UGC. The space available in the buildings is put to optimum use by holding the classes from 8:00AM to 3:45 PM and thereafter using them for tutorials and coaching classes. The college is a center for spot valuation of annual University examinations and the evaluation of answer scripts is carried out almost round the year. Being a recognized center for the Distance education programs of the M.D.University Rohtak, the College also uses the existing infrastructure to run the distance education courses.
The College has a seminar hall, which is utilised for organizing various programmes of the college. The College campus is well maintained and appears to be taking special care for maintaining the greenery in the campus. Safe and cool drinking water points and clean toilets in sufficient numbers are provided for all students and staff of the college.
The College common room has facilities for indoor games. Annual sports meet is organised in the college regularly. The college has a sports ground with concrete spectator stands and the track has been re-laid. With national level sports persons enrolled in the college, the facilities need to be augmented and the talent tapped and encouraged. Though the College provides fee concession, sports kit and cash prizes as incentives to worthy sportspersons it needs to be further strengthened.
The College has a Medical Centre for the benefit of students and staff. A qualified Doctor looks after the centre and the centre is open for 7 hours per day. Separate common rooms for girls and boys are available.
The College library has a total of 16,080 books. Books are given on loan basis to advanced learners and needy students form the Book Bank facility available with the College. The library is yet to go in for computerization. To encourage and tap the talent at the latest stage and to provide a platform for the students and the staff, the College annually brings out a College Magazine ' SHATABDI PRATIGYA' .
There are 101 computers with the required supporting accessories and the software available in the college. Most of them placed in the four computer labs catering to the requirement of the students opting for computer science /computer applications as a subject. The College also uses this facility to provide computer education to the interested students beyond the University prescribed syllabus on self-financing basis. The computer labs of the college are open for seven hours a day and all days through the week. To cope up with the frequent power cuts the college has 4 generators with a total of 98 KVA capacity. While the College has put in efforts in developing well-equipped Computer labs, the other labs in courses of pure sciences seem to have received little attention. With the ongoing phased revision of the syllabi the College need to concentrate on the augmentation of their science labs and the library.
Criterion V: Students Support and Progression
The College publishes every year an upgraded Prospectus giving information about the various courses, programmes, subject combinations, admission criteria, fee structure, faculty members, supporting staff, list of holidays, College and University rules and regulations, fee concessions and other facilities available to the students.
Apart from the scholarships received by the students under the various schemes of the Central and State Government, the college has also additional scholarships instituted by some charitable institutions/ individuals. A total of 25 students benefited from such scholarships during the current academic session. There is a career guidance cell in the college. Located in the Industrial town, the career guidance cell may evolve professional methods of guidance, with active participation of the Industry. The College alumni are well placed and are making significant contribution in the field of sports, teaching management, finance and Business. The recently formed Alumni association if actively involved may be of a great help to the College in its sustenance and in Placement services of the outgoing students. The "Earn while you learn" scheme operative in the college as per the provisions of the Govt. , provides part time employment to needy students. During the current year at least 9 students benefited from it. The college also holds personality development classes for the students, which is a commendable initiative of the Principal.
Facilities for substantive recreational and leisure time activities are provided in the college specifically like indoor games, magazines, audio video facilities, essay-writing competitions, dramatics, out door games, cultural activities, quiz dance and music competitions etc.. The college has hosted Zonal Youth Festival of the University 4 times during the last 10 years, the latest one, during the current session.
Criterion VI : Organization and Management
The DAV College managing committee (CMC) is the supreme decision making authority for all the colleges run by the society. There is a Governing body, which looks after the matters/administration of the College along with other DAV Colleges of Haryana. The Principal of the College is an Ex-officio member of the Governing body. At the College level there is College Council, with a balanced representation of the Managing Committee, Faculty, non-teaching staff, the Govt., the University and the students. The Principal is the Convenor of the College Council and responsible for the overall administration of the College. He is vested with all administrative and financial powers for the proper functioning of the College. For proper co-ordination and effective implementation of the various decisions the Principal appoints various Committees - a Staff Council, Academic Council, Advisory Council and Students grievance redressal cell etc.. The faculties are given additional charge of these committees and also are appointed as course cordinators of the self-financing courses and that of the Registrar, Bursar etc. The Faculty is paid additional remuneration for this. The Registrar, Deans and Heads of Departments coordinate various activities as assigned to them within the terms of reference. The Financial aspect of the College is managed and monitored by the Bursar. Apart from an internal audit system operative in the college, the services of duly accredited Chartered Accountants are utilized for auditing the accounts. The funds received from the Govt. under various heads are subject to the A.G. audit.
A special committee prepares academic Calendar of the College. Separate Grievance Redressal Cells are operative for students and for Teaching and Non-teaching staff. The Principal meets the office bearers of the Teaching Staff union and the non-teaching staff union regularly to sort out matters concerning their welfare. The management is supportive and the college takes special care for redressal of grievances.
Criterion VII : Healthy Practices
Some of the healthy practices of the College are listed below:
The objective of the college is to cultivate academics as well as the overall personality development. For that personality development professionals conduct classes and also various illuminaries from various fields are invited to interact with the students.
Value based education is the motto of the institution. That is being fulfilled by means of the "Arya Yuvak Sabha" and "Dharm Shiksha".
The students are encouraged to participate in community development oriented programmes like Blood Donation, Tree Plantation and Medical Camps.
"Earn While you learn" scheme generates a source of income to needy students.
The college has taken an initiative in identifying and starting need based vocational and market oriented courses in the fields of Computer Science, Commerce and Management on self-financing basis.
Overall Analysis :
Over the years the College appears to have improved and appropriately responded to the market needs by starting new and upcoming courses. The College is also moving towards the talent identification of the youth and has taken a bold initiative in organizing the Regional Youth festivals and seminars on topics like good governance, female foeticide etc. The College is optimally utilizing the infrastructure and is also spearheading the cause of education by providing its infrastructure to the Distance Education Programmes. The Management Committee consisting of eminent persons from all spheres of life are committed and had been contributing towards the growth of the College by their benevolence and charity.
While appreciating the efforts of the College in the various fields, the Committee would like to bring the following concerns for the attention of the College authorities:
The upkeep of the science laboratories and their augmentation needs to be immediately looked into.
Keeping in view the technology trends of the coming years, the college may think of starting courses in the bioscience disciplines
The teachers should be encouraged and motivated for self-improvement and pursuing research. The various schemes of UGC may be taken advantage of.
The attendance of the students in the classes needs improvement. The problem should be seriously viewed and appropriate remedial action be initiated. As desired by many of the parents, providing transport facility may improve the situation.
The dropout rate is around 28% which needs a serious review
Sports facilities should be improved and students should be encouraged to participate in various events by providing them the required training
The UGC grants are under utilized and part of it is surrendered. Immediate attention be paid for proper financial planning and optimum utilization of the grants received.
The Committee appreciates the efforts put in by the Principal and his team in preparing for the assessment and thanks the Principal and the staff for co-operating with the Peer team in assessing the College and validating the self study report submitted by them.
