The mission of the College is 'to facilitate comprehensive and integrated development of individuals to effectively function as social beings imbued with righteousness and courage of conviction'.

The College is functioning from two campuses: The Hill Campus and the Valley Campus. The Hill Campus of the College is located on a 21-acre campus, in a semi-urban area. There are 650 students who have been enrolled for the various programmes. There are 271 boys and 377 girls. A majority of the students are from the State of Kerala.

Section III : Overall Analysis
Rajagiri College of Social Sciences is a Catholic minority College managed by the Carmalites of Mary Immaculate Fathers and affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. This College is fortunate to have a top management which has a very comprehensive vision for education and the vision and mission of this College have drawn inspiration from the vision of the founding Fathers of CMIs.

This College was given a Five Star status by NAAC during the year 2000. Based on the recommendations of the Peer Team's accreditation report this College has stepped up its efforts to improve all aspects of the functioning in the right direction. The College has added a new campus. The campus area and built up area has increased nearly four fold; faculty, student and staff strength has increased three fold; number of courses and the number of books have doubled and the number of computers have increased ten times, the library spending increased nearly five times. The research projects completed by the College during these six years was more than what the College had done in the fifteen years before the last assessment. The number of publications and training and consultancy services have also increased four fold since the last assessment in 2000. The number of Faculty Development Programmes attended by the faculty have also increased four fold. The growth of this College during the last six years has been phenomenal and impressive. The Peer Team would like to place on record its warm appreciation of the management, Principal, faculty, staff and students for making this possible. This only goes to show that this institution has tremendous untapped potential to grow as a globally well known academic institution.

The Pear Team commends the institution for the following aspects

A serene atmosphere in the Hill and Valley campuses and the multi-storeyed buildings, spacious class rooms, library, computer centres and the auditorium.

A team of dedicated teachers working under the guidance of a dynamic Principal.

A Management that cares for quality in teaching-learning process, selection of competent faculty and provision of necessary infrastructure facilities.

For making available many modern equipments like OHP, LCD Projector, Internet, CD ROMs, cassettes in both the campuses and Wi-Fi system in the Valley Campus and putting them at the disposal of the faculty and students.

Participative management with well defined responsibilities to look after the academic and disciplinary matters.

An impressive record of cultural activities and community services by the students.

For giving importance to cleanliness, punctuality, self-discipline and eco-friendly campus.

The very cordial atmosphere that prevails among the teachers, students and staff.

Helping in the development of personality of the students who are committed to their care on all the five important dimensions: intellectual, physical, emotional, aesthetic and spiritual.

Offering add-on courses to enhance the knowledge and skill of the students and planning several activities to develop the skills of the students, shape their attitudes and inculcate the right human values, in addition to the curriculum prescribed by the University.

For focusing on and carrying out experiential learning activities.

For organizing social sensitization programmes for the students of all the streams activities like camps, visits, campaigns, disaster and emergency responses.

For creating an atmosphere of openness, transparency and professionalism in all the processes of the institution.

Conducting Annual Academic Retreat of the faculty (Bodhi), where they review their own performance during the previous academic year and for planning meticulously the academic work of the subsequent year.

Publication of two professional journals (a) Rajagiri Management Journal and (b) Rajagiri Journal of Social Development

Growth and excellence are not events. The moment one reaches a given target in the process of growth and excellences, new challenges emerge due to the changing situations and events. In this background, while appreciating the good work this College has been able to do for the last 52 years, and looking at their ability to grow at such a fast pace during the last 6 years, the Peer Team would like to suggest the following recommendations

This institution has achieved so much, working under very severe constraints of the rigid University system as an affiliating College. In the last NAAC Peer Team visit, the Committee has strongly recommended that this College has the potential to be 'Autonomous' and even become a 'Deemed to be University'. The Management of this institution is desirous of getting the autonomous status and the faculty members are in favour of it so that they will be able to serve the student community and the society with a lot more of vigour and efficiency. But unfortunately all the efforts of the management have failed. While assessing this institution after six years, the Peer Team feels this institution deserves not just an autonomous status but also has the capacity to become an institution with potential for excellence and ultimately become a Deemed to be University. This successful model of imparting quality and value based education coupled with social sensitization must be replicated in other parts of the country also. Keeping this in mind we, the Peer Team, recommends that the top management along with all the stake holders create a five year strategic perspective plan to make this laudable objective a reality. This plan must be comprehensive to accommodate the kind of hurdles that are likely to crop up and the ways and means of handling those issues with alternate back up plans. When once all the stake holders know where they are now and where they want to be, the direction for the institution will become clear. Then a road map and a series of action plans will have to be developed. A chart as to who will do what in a time bound manner may be developed.

Soft skills developed in the MBA, MCA and MSW Programmes should include not only good communication skills but also excellent inter personal skills, bold decision making skills and negotiating skills. Lot more of stress may be given to the MBA students to develop business games that will simulate the real life situation like stock exchange game and foreign exchange game.

In the long run the management may consider the possibility of opening up a Law School with specialization in industrial law, as they have business management and personnel management and industrial relations programmes.

Branding of Rajagiri may be done in such a way that they are able to attract talents from across the country.

The College may think of upgrading the certificate courses in environment and disaster management into specializations.

It is commendable that the College is thinking of making the hill campus exclusively for the use of the School of Social Work and Social Development. They may think in terms of introducing a few more Post-Graduate courses on Human Rights and Social Sciences.

The College has started a B.S.W. course, the first one in Kerala. It can think of an integrated five year course with multi level entry.

The Peer Team places on record its appreciation of the institution for the co-operation, support and hospitality extended to the team and congratulates the Board of Management, the Director of the institution, Principal of the College, faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni and the local community for the sincere efforts they have taken for developing this institution. The Peer Team would like to commend the unique blend of academic excellence with human values and social development the institution has been able to achieve. The Peer Team has no hesitation in strongly recommending to the authorities concerned to grant total autonomy, a status for this institution as a College with potential for excellence and ultimately a Deemed to be University. We wish this College resounding success in all its academic endeavours.
