Keeping in view the autonomous status of the college, the peer team would suggest the following to the college for consideration :

While the peer team appreciates the overall mission of the College, it should identify specific objectives and make strategic plans to reach those objectives.

The College may explore the possibility of introducing more course options to increase flexibility in course combinations keeping in mind the latest trends and social needs.

In the light of the success achieved in the certificate courses offered earlier, effort should be made to revive these courses and start some new certificate courses.

Access to computers and student support services like placement cell need to be strengthened.
With the autonomous status of the institution, the administrative staff may have to play a greater role in the functioning of the college. The computer centre may train them accordingly in the use of computers to discharge their duties effectively.

Formal mechanism for collecting feedback from students on various aspects of their learning experience at the departmental/institutional level may be instituted.

The College should make provision to improve facilities for the faculty.

The self-appraisal and other appraisal mechanism of teachers need to be strengthened.

At present there is no mechanism for maintaining students progress by each department by the faculty member. A suitable mechanism may be thought of.

Research activity of the College is very encouraging. Taking up research projects on consultancy basis may strengthen the research activities further.

Departments may be encouraged to bring out newsletters and research journals.
