SECTION II: CRITERION WISE ANALYLSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS:
Since the college is affiliated to the APS University, Rewa (MP), it follows the syllabi prescribed by the University. The university brings in academic peers to review the existing curriculum. The college has no direct role in curriculum planning. However, the teachers who are members of the respective Boards of Study play a vital role in the discussions on updating the syllabi.
The U. G. and P. G. Degree courses follow annual pattern. Almost all programmes are of conventional nature.
The subjects are knowledge oriented, though in Science and Home Science faculties both knowledge and skills are involved. However, students have number of career options. Inter-disciplinary and multi disciplinary lectures are arranged to widen the knowledge of students. To introduce a new programme, within the regulations of the present university system, the college takes about a year in the normal course.
It is observed that the college has not introduced any new course since 1986. However, the college has now felt the need for opening at least a few selected vocational and job oriented courses. As a result of the effort of the college, the Government of M. P. has approved two new self-financed courses (one in Commerce and another in Economics) from the academic year 2005-06. The course in Commerce (M.Com. Part I) is already introduced; the one in Economics will be introduced from the next academic year, as its approval came late. Moreover, the college has sent proposals to the UGC for introducing seven career-oriented PG Diploma courses (in Museology and Archaeology, Childhood and Family Counseling, Functional English, Journalism and Communication, Applied Sociology, Clinical and Nutrition & Dietetics, and Tax Planning and Procedure).
The teachers of the college participate in seminars and workshops. They are also involved in promoting interaction between college and community and introducing some form of networking system with the larger society.
Admission to the UG courses of study is done on the basis of academic records, and for science faculty, as per the academic records along with special entrance tests.
CRITERION II: TEACHING, LEARNING, AND EVALUATION :
The syllabi are unitized according to the annual system of teaching for U.G. and semester system for P.G. Courses.
Monthly class tests and tutorials are conducted and assignments are given regularly to motivate students. Final examinations are conducted by APS University, Rewa (M.P.). Apart from the regular classroom teaching, quiz competition, poster exhibition, project/task assignment, seminars, group discussions, and visual presentation are also used, to supplement the lecture method.
The college has 57 faculty members out of them 53 are permanent and 04 are temporary. Out of 53 permanent faculty members 41 are Ph.D. degree holders and 02 M.Phil. degree holders. The recruitment of teaching staff is done by the Government of M.P. through its own recruitment rules. There is a mechanism for collecting the feedback of students on campus experience. There is also a provision of self-appraisal of teachers. For coaching weaker students, provision for remedial classes is also there. Some of the departments such as Music, Home Science, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, History, Hindi etc. are extremely good.
The results of the college are consistently very good and many students are the toppers in the university.
CRITERIALN-III : RESEARCH CONSULTATION AND EXTENSION.
Teachers of most of the P.G. Depts. in the college, guide Ph.D. students. 21 part time research scholars and more than 60 % of teachers are engaged in active research in the college. Some of them have published research papers and books.
NSS & NCC is very active in the college. 08 NCC Cadets have participated in the Republic Day Parade. They have also participated in cultural programmes, shooting competitions, para- sailing etc. and won prizes. They also participated in youth exchange programme at Bangladesh.
The NSS with its motto 'Service to Humanity' organizes year-long activities. The various extension activities offered by the college under NSS are: Community Development, Health & Hygiene Awareness, Adult Education and Literacy, AIDS Awareness, Medical Camp, Blood Donation Camp, and Environment Awareness.
College collaborates with Government organizations like Health Department for polio vaccinations; Forest Department for tree-plantation; Women and Child Development Department for nutrition programme; and Red Cross. A number of teachers have been given additional charge for various activities. Still it is felt that a vide scope is there to improve.
CRITERIAN- IV : INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES.
The college is located in the city of Reva. It is housed in a building constructed in 1965. There is an extreme shortage of class-rooms and
laboratory. Need for repairs, renovation and expansion has to be taken note of.
College has its own hostel with sixty seats. The college maintains its infrastructure out of grants received from the Government of Madhya Pradesh, UGC, resources generated by Jan Bhagidari Samiti, District planning Board funds of MP's and MLA's, donations, and limited internal resources. For further development it is looking for the grants from UGC, State Government, local area development funds of MP's and MLA's and donations. The college has a central library. Total number of books in the library is reported to be 29,780. The library also subscribes to twenty-one journals/periodicals and some newspapers. During the year 2002-2003, one hundred and ten books costing Rs. 55,000 were added. The number of books added in 2003-04 was 593 costing Rs. 1,10,000. Library has reprography, computer and internet facilities. It also has audio and video cassettes. In spite of very limited staff the librarian is managing the library quite satisfactorily.
The library at present is not connected with other libraries for inter library borrowing. It does have a book bank. As the College at present has under graduate and postgraduate programmes in science, arts, commerce and home science, including Ph.D programme, library can further be strengthened for better services to the students. Keeping in view the ever increasing cost of books and avoid duplication , college can make use of inter university centres for inter library borrowing.
At present central computer facility in the college is not available. College is planning to provide better access to majority of the departments by the end of 10th plan. Keeping in view the age of rapid information and technology development, provision of computers both as teaching aids and for administrative and management tasks is a must. The college therefore may make serious attempts for enhancing computer facilities and use of computer aided learning packages at least in some of the subjects.
In terms of health services the College provides first aid. Teaching and non-teaching staff are entitled to get free medical treatment at government hospitals and their medical bills are reimbursed.
College at present has a play ground. It is trying to develop its own athletic track.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The college has about 1,830 students on its rolls. Being a women's college, all students are obviously females. Every year the result of the college is consistently good in almost all subjects and many of them appear in the toppers' list of the university.
College publishes its updated prospectus every year providing details of the academic programmes, fee structure, scholarship, hostel facility etc. It collects feedback from students regularly. College offers scholarships to SC, ST, OBC and physically handicapped candidates. Poor girls are also given merit cum means scholarship. Wards of Bidi workers are also given scholarships.
During the year 2003-04, 163 SC/ST/OBCs, 9 wards of bidi workers and 14 poor students were given scholarships. The number of students in 2004-05 was 167, 14 and 3 respectively. In 2004-05, three physically handicapped students were given scholarship while none in 2003-04. Also in 2004-05 two merit scholarships were given while none in 2003-04. College has an advisory employment cell, which provides guidance to female students about employment opportunities.
However, the college has a placement officer. College has an alumuni association which contributes towards the college resources as also takes interest in development of courses.
College has indoor and outdoor games facilities for games like chess, carom, table tennis, basketball, volleyball, kabbadi, khokho, and athletes except tracks. It has a well made standard basketball court. For students' overall development, the college publishes students' magazines, organizes essay competitions, debates, cultural programmes, and dance and music competitions. College also has NCC and NSS wings and subject associations. Students are encouraged to participate in youth festivals etc. Keeping in view the importance of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities college needs to improve the facilities for sports and cultural activities.
Criterion VI: Organisation and Management
College is a totally government owned and financed college. Therefore organization and management is in accordance with government rules.
College however reports to have an internal coordinating and monitoring mechanism to help the administration. Academic activities of the college are undertaken through various committees. The academic calendar of the college is provided by the university. Teaching staff's work is assessed and monitored by the Principal through Heads of the Departments, and confidential assessment reports are sent to government at the end of each academic session. The work efficiency of the non-teaching staff is assessed by the Registrar of the college and confidential reports are written by him. The college is planning to conduct training programmes for non-teaching staff. Since college does not charge any tuition fee, it depends on aid from government, UGC and
other agencies and also limited fees charged as library, laboratory and other charges. The college has an internal audit mechanism. Head of the institution's supervision, monitoring, and motivation seems to be effective.
The welfare programmes for teaching and non-teaching staff are the same as that of government like GPF loan, temporary advance, group insurance, free education for children etc. The college also has a grievance redressal cell headed by a senior faculty member.
Criterion VII: Other Healthy Practices
The college has adopted processes for internal quality checks which include assessment by students, self appraisal by teachers, and assessments by Heads of Departments and the Principal.
At present college does not have twinning programmes, or interactions with industries, research organizations. Neither it has any international linkages. These need to be attempted.
College is only at the planning stage to introduce new courses. To provide counseling and personal attention it has arrangements for tutorials. Though as a part of government policy, the college does not charge fee from its students (all being females). It indeed is an encouraging step towards education and empowerment of women. Another noteworthy aspect is that the college has highly qualified and motivated teaching faculty. The college has introduced a series of internal reforms leading to democratization of the institution and transparency in decision making. It may make further attempts towards computerization, introduction of vocational and professional courses, and career guidance for students.
Section 3: Overall Analysis
The college is performing a Herculean task of women empowerment through imparting undergraduate, postgraduate, and research training to girls in four major and basic disciplines such as: Arts, Science, Commerce, and Home Science, though it is located in a backward region of the backward state of Madhya Pradesh, where the tradition of private participation in higher education is almost non-existent. The college does not charge fees from the students, as the girls' education is free in the state, and therefore does not have enough internal resources for providing and maintaining some basic infrastuctural facilities such as space, equipments, laboratories, class rooms, library, play ground etc.
Moreover, the college is totally dependent on the state government and UGC for its finances and on the university for its academic and administrative affairs.
The state policy of frequent transfers of the Principal without giving them sufficient time to contribute to the institutional growth of the college has affected the growth of the college. More than half of the Principals occupied the chair only for a year or two and in some cases even less than a year.
In this context the peer team members wish to place on record the following commendations:
The Principal Dr. V. K. Sharma has successfully inspired the teaching and non-teaching staff of the college and instilled a sense of confidence among them despite the sever financial and infrastucutral constraints.
The Coordinator Dr. Abha Varma and other teachers also played a very important role in preparing the college for the assessment and accreditation.
The management is committed to maintain high standards, and provide quality education, by raising resources through Jan-bhagidari, by adopting useful schemes such as introduction of job oriented diploma courses on self-finance basis.
Reputed alumni and prominent citizens, including local elites, have helped the college financially and otherwise, and thereby develop a strong feeling of the community involvement.
The college administration has harmonious relations with teachers, students, and non-teaching employees.
The college is actively considering applying for institutional autonomy and potential for excellence.
Practice of internal evaluation is noteworthy.
The Peer Team suggests the following:
Teachers of the college should enhance their participation in academic activities such as participation in seminars, conferences, workshops etc. at regional and national level. They should also take up more research projects and try to publish more.
The college may start P.G. Courses in fields like Environmental Science, Bio-Technology, Computer Applications, M.B.A., and career-oriented certificate courses can be offered in areas like Food Processing, Cosmetology, Garment Designing, Fashion Design etc.
College should approach appropriate authority to get additional staff and basic infrastuctural facilities, and for introducing more subjects on grant-in-aid basis. The recent government policy of introducing courses on self-financed basis, however, goes against the spirit of free education of girls, particularly in a backward region like Rewa.
The counseling and employment cell needs to be strengthened for academic and personal guidance.
A central computer facility is essential and needs be provided for the benefit of students and staff.
A senior staff member could be assigned charge of the Research and Consultancy Programmes (RCP) and made responsible for guiding teachers and students for research activities and publications.
A 'best teacher award' for the teachers and "best non-teaching staff award' of the college can be given once in three years.
The Planning and Evaluation Board which is already existing in the college may become still more active to have internal quality monitoring through out the year.
The departments, which are engaged in research, require modernization, which can be undertaken by taking up more minor and major research projects.
The hostel needs to be renovated and provided additional facilities.
Computerisation of the library has been initiated but more space and latest books need to be added immediately. The library has a staff of only two persons, which is insufficient for such a large college.
The college needs to sensitize its staff with latest managerial concepts. It can also sign Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with industries.
The college and the management may seriously consider forming different study groups of teachers and asking them to visit renowned colleges and institutions of the state and also of the nearby states inorder to learn and adopt healthy practices found in such institutions, for the benefit of the college.
The peer team wishes to put on record its appreciation for the enormous amount of goodwill and co-operation extended by the institution during the visit. The effort of the Principal, teaching and non-teaching staff in fostering and maintaining an academic atmosphere in the college campus is well appreciated. The peer team appreciates the dynamic and visionary and inspiring leadership of the Principal Dr V. K. Sharma and wishes that the college will make great strides in academics in the years to come. May this institution of higher education catering primarily to the girl students of this backward region grow from strength to strength in its pursuit of excellence.
