Media coverage of Smt Sushiladevi Deshmukh Mahila Senior College, Latur Maharashtra, Maharashtra

NAAC report of Smt Sushiladevi Deshmukh Mahila Senior College

Smt. Sushiladevi Deshmukh Mahila Senior College, Latur 413512, Maharashtra was started in June 1990 in Latur, which is a district head quarter. This is in the heart of the town. The Manjara Charitable Trust, Vilasnagar, Chincholiraowadi at Latur started this college to provide value-based education to the rural women folk. This college being the first women's college started in this backward area of Maharashtra, aims at creating opportunities for higher education to women student hailing from neighbouring villages.

The college is named after Smt. Sushiladevi who dedicated her life for the cause of empowerment of women in various aspects, which has become the main source of inspiration to the girl students pursuing education in this college.

The college volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Banglore and submitted the self-study report in April 2003. NAAC constituted a peer committee to visit the college and to validate the self-study report. The peer team comprised of Prof. P. Ramaiah, Rector and Director, Academics, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University, Hyderabad as the Chairman, Prof. Dr. R.V.Swamy, Formerly of the Dept. of Economics and Director (S.W.) Bangalore University, Bangalore, Dr. M.Sarngadharan, Prof. and Head, Dept. of Commerce, University of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram as members. The peer team visited the institution on 10th and 11th of January, 2004. Prof. K. Banadarangaiah, Academic Consultant, NAAC, ably coordinated the peer team visit to this institution of higher learning.

The Manjara Charitable Trust society, a premier socio cultural organization in this Marathwada area is striving to impart quality education to enable its women stakeholders to face the emerging challenges in the future. Besides this college, the trust has promoted as many as 17 educational institutions in varied types of disciplines. This is a college for women, affiliated to Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University, Nanded, offering three years degree course in B.A. The college has applied for University Grants Commission recognition under 2(f) on 18-12-1998 and also admitted to Grant-in-aid by the Government of Maharashtra.

The college is housed in a well-planned and neatly maintained spacious building with good infrastructure, which also accommodates co-educational college. The total area of the campus is 7.75 acres. The college offers only B.A. programme and has well qualified and experienced teaching faculty strength of 12 with 7 female and 5 male members. Three teachers are with Ph.D. degree, 3 with M.Phil and 6 are with P.G. as the highest qualification. Nine faculty members are working on temporary basis supported by 8 non-teaching staff. Out of this nine (3) have submitted their thesis for Ph.D. degree. There are 10 departments, inclusive of the department of Physical Education providing free access to choose the optional subjects for a student population of 220. Most of these students are from the locality and some commute from neighbouring areas.

The Peer Team meticulously analyzed the Self-study Report submitted by the institution. During the two-day visit to the college, the Team went through the relevant documents as well as visited the departments and the facilities - academic, co-curricular, sports, infrastructure and extension service centers of the institution. The members of the Peer Team also interacted with the Management Council, Principal, Faculty, Non-teaching staff, Representatives of the students, Parents and Alumni of the college. Based on the above exercise and keeping in view the seven criteria identified by NAAC, the Peer Team has given its concerted and objective assessment of the institution in the following pages.

Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
Since the college is one among the many educational institutions run by the trust, there is no mentioning in their trust deed of any special interest of the trustees for the cause of promoting educational programmes to meet the needs of women students. The representative of the management, however, expressed the concern of the trust for providing opportunitities for higher education for girls, especially because the milien is not favourable for women to pursue studies beyond matriculation. This goal and object of the college is well received by students and by enlightened sections among parents.

The college offers only a three-year B.A. degree programme for its students. Flexibility is allowed to them in choosing a combination of three optional subjects out of 10. As these and other academic matters are determined at the University level, there is not much scope for teachers to play a direct role in deciding upon the combination. The college believes that the subjects studied by them and the additional training they gain by their participation in seminars and workshops conducted by the college would contribute for the overall development of the personality of students.

However, the views of students on the curriculum and syllabi are ascertained by teachers who along with their own thinking on those matters, transmit them to the university bodies for consideration.

Among academic activities meriting attention are those efforts made to provide remedial tuition to students coming from rural background and therefore suffer from the disadvantage due to poverty, poor parental background and unfavourbale living conditions.

Also because the student strength is small and therefore teacher - student ratio is very favourable, there is effective rapport between teachers and students. Students are encouraged to discuss freely with teachers their problems not merely academic but also often those relating to their family relations. Teachers also have a healthy practice of calling on the parents of students and trying to change their mindset which was adversely affecting their wards or, to suitable counsel to very students who were for one reason or the other were not attending classes or were not making good grade.

Criteria II -Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
This is a college of modest size having the students enrolment of 220 and staff strength of 21. There has not been much of a scope for improving the curriculum. The university has stipulated the syllabi, course content such other matters related to the process of instructions. This fact does not permit easy modification or reinforcing of syllabi and course content. However, teachers do discuss the ways of improving the curriculum at the meetings of Boards of Studies, which pass the conscious on these matters to appropriate university bodies for necessary action at their end. In regard to neighbourhood networking, through the N.S.S. students participated in AIDS awareness camps. Movement against child labour, against the evil of dowry system, movement to eradicate drug addiction of alcoholism and such other anti social activity that would transform and improve the quality of life of people. The students have been also encouraged to popularize yoga among the rural folk.

It was noted that all the teachers have established good rapport with their students. Low achievers who have difficulty to understand lectures; or those who are poor in writing skills are given remedial tuition by teachers during outside of class hours. In several cases, teachers did visit parents and discussed with them about the difficulties experienced by their children in their studies.

At the time of admission, guidance is given by every teacher to any student or his/her parent on the courses and the scope they offer for their future career. Special tests are also held at the time of admission to judge the aptitude of the student for different combinations of the subjects. The department of English had introduced a special coaching camp aimed at improving the spoken English of students, particularly for those coming from rural areas. Essay writing skills are also taught to the students who are further encouraged to participate in essay writing competitions.

It was also noted that discussions and seminars have been organized to supplement classroom teaching in order to enable the students to sharpen their reading and writing abilities. By arranging study tours, the departments of History and Geography have encouraged their students to gain meaningful experience of some concepts taught to them in the classroom.

At the beginning of the year itself teachers inform their students about evaluation such as, the scheme of examination. Question papers of past examinations are also discussed with them. Question-answer sessions are frequently held by teachers, which will help them to evaluate the academic progress of their students. Teachers submit their self-appraisal report once in six months. This report would help the Heads of the departments and also the principal to keep a tab on the performance of teachers vis-à-vis their class work.

Among the extra academic activity, mention could be made of the department of Economics of the successful conduct of the annual conference of the Marathwada Economic Parishad and that of the department of Hindi, which organized a workshop. Besides, teachers of the college attended 11 refresher courses and three workshops.

Criterion - III : Research, Consultancy and Extension
The Research activity and extension work are given major consideration by the faculty of the college. There are 21 teachers working in the college, out of which 12 are permanent, while 9 teachers are on temporary basis. Out of 12 permanent teachers 5 are men and 7 are women. 4 women and 5 men teachers are working on temporary basis. Three teachers are with Ph.D. Three others are with M.Phil. degree and ten are pursuing part-time research leading Ph.D. degree. The faculty is seriously engaged in research. One faculty member has participated in 4 Sahitya Samellans and 4 conferences, 5 seminars, 7 workshops which were organized by various research organization in Maharashtra in Marathi. One faculty has produced four M.Phils in the department of Hindi.

Most of the lady members of staff from all the ten departments have participated in national level conferences (03), State Level Seminars (10), Workshops (20), Regional level Seminars (15), Orientation programmes (06), Refresher courses (18), Papers / books published (10) and has participated in radio talks. One faculty member is a senate member of the university and one faculty member has received an invitation to participate in an International conference. Most of the faculty members are life members of their subject associations. The department of Geography, the Department of Physical Education and other departments have organized workshops, seminars and conducted camps on national integration.

The management is providing financial support to organize seminars, conferences, guest lectures and other academic events. This has motivated teachers to pursue research on socially relevant problems and also problems peculiar to the locality. This has also further encouraged them to interact much more with the academicians and social organizations.

The Smt. Sushiladevi Deshmukh Mahila College is doing commendable extension work through its N.S.S. volunteers and the involvement of faculty with Non-governmental Organizations. The students of third year B.A. are expected to submit a simple research project as a part of their curriculum. There are 125 N.S.S. Volunteers doing commendable social work. The college has a clear vision of the type of extension work that is to be undertaken every year. The college is involved in extension activities like programme to enhance a Health Awareness among people, Tree Planting, New Year Sankalp Day, Organizing Polio Camps, Blood Donation Camps, Rain Water Conservation Camp, Anti Addiction Camp, Yoga Arogya Camp, AIDS Awareness Programme, Rural Educational Problems and Children Health Camp and Gram Swachhata Camps. In addition to this, the N.S.S. unit is also organizing special camps every year by adopting one village. The lady faculty members have been deeply involved in social activities as members and or as directors in for a like 'Nari Prabodhan Manch', 'Sushila Mukti Forum', Population Education Forum', Economic Education Forum' and Sonali Mahila Mandal'. The college is also observing the Hindi Day, Literacy Day, Population Day. In addition to this, the college is also organizing programmes like Wrudhashram Day, Anti Addiction Camp, Anti Dowry Camp on Teaching to the rural masses living in slum areas and on child labour. One commendable thing is that a faculty member is engaged in educating the rural mass on superstitions in stimulating in them awareness on Gram Swachhata and enlightening them on Women's rights and law. With the help of girl students, adult education programmes have been arranged. Since most of the students are from rural areas they know their social problems. The college is developing leadership among the students in organizing extension activities. Each of the faculty members is responsible for promoting different activities and the group of students working with them carry out the activities. Many students are actively participating in outdoor games and have distinguished themselves particularly in athletics and Kho-kho. While these are some of the noteworthy extension activities of the college, it clearly indicates the extent of its out reach programmes.

Criterion - IV : Infrastructure and learning resources
This Mahila college is strategically located in the heart of the town of Latur with an area of 7.75 acres. The building accommodates various departments like Library, General administration and classrooms. Classrooms are adequately equipped and furnished. This college also accommodates the boys' college (co-education) on first floor of the main building. The college has a canteen, space for parking vehicles and good facilities for sports and indoor games, health center, hostel and one assembly hall. The premises of the college are well maintained. The infrastructure facilities are optimally utilized. There is a plenty of unused land around and a part of this is used to lay a garden. Amenities like toilets for students, facility for drinking water and common room exist.

There is a library consisting of 8693 books acquired at a cost of Rs. 7.44 lakhs in addition to books, the college also subscribes to 17 dailies in Marathi language, 2 in Hindi and 2 in English. The library has only audio and videocassettes. There is an operation of a book bank scheme. The library is kept open on all working days between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. In the library there is a separate reading room for staff and students. There is a library advisory committee consisting of the principal and four other members. The library is well kept. The students are encouraged to participate in indoor and outdoor games. The infrastructure available in the college is also being used by other government agencies as center for state examination and entrance examination during Sundays and holidays. In this campus, the Manjara Ayurvedic college has an out patient department. Health services are also available to the students and staff members. Students with outstanding sports record are given preference at the time of admission to the college. The university awards them the additional weightage of marks in their year-end examination. 14 students have participated at the inter-university level competitions.

The peer team is happy to note that the infrastructure facilities available in the college are reasonably adequate. However, in view of the growing and diversified needs of the student population, existing infrastructure facilities are needed to be strengthened. The Library could be computerized. The boys' college (Co-education) may be shifted from the existing building, so that new programmes may be introduced for the benefit of the girl students in the space that would be made available thereafter.

Criterion - V : Student Support and Progression
The college has adequate facilities to provide support services for the students. Student support services include scholarships, educational concessions from the government and from the trust. Financial support is also extended to economically backward, physically handicapped and other deprived sections of the society. The scholarships include Government of India scholarship, Merit scholarships from the Government of Maharashtra, Non-Hindi speaking scholarships. It is praise worthy that faculty members of the college also extend financial support to the economically weaker students. Last year 44 students have received the Government of India scholarship.

The facilities available for extra curricular activities such as performing Arts and cultural activities, social work and sports have helped in the personality development of the students. There is also a provision to get feedback from the students, so as to know their problems and difficulties. A proforma is prepared in this regard and the students are asked to mention their problems as also the amenities things which they want that would enrich their academic skills required for them for better life without mentioning their names. The college also displays on the notice board the information required for students from time to time.

The faculty provides counseling on all academic matters to all the socially and economically backward students. By personal counseling regularly their personal problems are attended to by the faculty. There is also employment counseling and a placement cell is working under a team of teachers which provides employment guidance. The prospectus contains the profile of the college, details about the programmes offered, courses and optionals, rules and regulations and facilities available in the college. The examination system and the pattern that is adopted will also be informed to the student in the beginning of the academic year.

Students are encouraged to participate in sports events at the inter-university and at the state level. 14 students had participated in Kho-kho, Kabbadi and other games at the inter-university level. Outstanding sports men among the students are encouraged by award of mementos and certificates. They are also provided with special counseling.

Co-curricular and extra curricular activities are encouraged through debate clubs, cultural programmes, dance and music competitions, essay writing, literary poster, poetry recital and also through departmental committees. These activities help the students to achieve allround development of personality.

The peer team is happy to note that self-confidence is created among the girl students during their study and after, are holding important positions in different walks of life that is in Government service, self-employment, politics and higher studies. Record regarding the progress of students, to higher studies / employment needs to be maintained by the institution. The college / faculty needs to counsel the students to reduce the drop out rate. A faculty member in-charge of sports activities is also a coach at university level and another faculty member who is in-charge of cultural activities. A teacher is in-charge of NSS programme. A team of women teachers guides and counsels girl students and helps them to sort out their personal / financial problems.

Criterion - VI : Organization and Management
The Manjara Charitable Trust has established this mahila college of Arts, which is an aided private institution of higher learning, managed by a committee of management. This college is named after Late Sushiladevi Deshmukh who was an eminent social worker. The Governing council consists of many reputed personalities as its members and is headed by the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra (Shri Vilasrao Deshmukh). The management is efficient and transparent in administration. The college has also a very effective and efficient internal coordination and monitoring system among the faculty members and non-teaching staff. The management has given a free hand to the Principal and the faculty in administrative and academic matters. The management meets them periodically in its periodical meeting and discusses important problems. The governing body works in the most democratic manner and suggestions of the Principal, teaching and non-teaching staff and representatives of students are considered sympathetically. The financial and administrative records are well maintained and kept up to date. There is a system of prudent management of finance; and accounts are audited by statutory agencies.

The day-to-day administration of the college rests with the principal. For the purpose of assistance in academic and co-curricular and extra-curricular activities a number of committees are constituted consisting of teachers, students and non-teaching staff. The committees are Discipline, Examination, Library, Students Welfare and NSS Coordination, etc. This particular approach helps the college in planning and implementation of various activities in the institution from time to time. The Principal calls regular meetings of the students' council to sort out the grievances and complaints of the students. There is a mechanism to get the feedback from the students. One external member from a local college was invited to be an honorary member of the Governing council of this college to suggest suitable measures for smooth functioning of the administration. The college has an in built mechanism to check the efficiency of teaching and non-teaching staff. Self-appraisal method is adopted to assess the performance of the teacher. The institution has welfare programmes for the benefit of teaching staff as well as non-teaching staff. Loans are provided to the employees through Cooperative Credit Society. The faculty and the management provide financial support to the physically handicapped students and to the economically weaker sections of students by paying their tuition and examination fees. The management encourages the faculty to pursue their research, to attend seminars, orientation and refresher courses by providing the necessary academic leave. There is a perfect coordination between the college management and the college administration on the one hand and teachers, students and non-teaching staff on the other. There is a healthy atmosphere in the college to facilitate quality in higher education and social development.

Criterion - VII Healthy Practices
This being a women's college located in a predominantly rural area, it faces some special problems. The rural population is yet to appreciate the value of higher education for girls. Therefore, there is an in built negative attitude and mindset not-conducive to the advancement of women through education. Economic backwardness, apathy and lack of awareness have been stumbling blocks for girls to derive the benefit of education.

Juxtaposed in this context, teachers have cultivated certain healthy practices. Notable among these is the active support they are lending to the cause of education of girls by establishing contact with parents of girl students, impressing them on the need for sending their children for higher educational institutions and for providing suitable conditions for them to study. By this gesture of extending their services beyond classroom by meeting parents to persuade them to continue their daughter's education is indeed to be appreciated.

Besides, teachers are also involved in offering a kind of personal guidance to help the girl students to understand problems of people at large and to understand particular problems affecting their lot. Attempts have also been made to inculcate in them social values such as to respect all religions and to cultivate attitudes helpful to lead a socially useful life.

Teachers also suitably advise students to involve themselves in every kind of social service that would help in improving the living conditions of the weak, poor and down trodden. Many of the teachers are actively engaged in non-governmental organizations involved in literacy movement, in programmes relating to planned parenthood and in campaigns against superstitions.

Section III
Overall Analysis
On an in depth perusal of the Self-study report and assessment of the academic activities, infrastructure facilities and interest of the students, teachers and management, the Peer Team is thoroughly impressed by the efforts put forward by the various groups. It is with immense pleasure that the team places on record the yeoman services rendered by the interested parties in achieving the mission of the college to provide opportunities for higher learning to the women students hailing from socially economically and educationally backward classes of Latur and nearby villages, by being the first of its kind in Marathwada region. It also requires appreciation at this juncture for the interest shown to effectively coordinate the various elements in imparting higher education and to effectively monitor the operation with the active involvement of teachers and non-teachers. The academic freedom provided by the management to the principal and teaching staff has paved way for the successful upliftment of the rural women folk of Latur through higher education. The efforts of the teachers in acquiring higher degrees like M.Phil. and Ph.D. and participating in workshops, seminars, refresher and orientation programmes is also laudable. It is observed that the college has earned confidence among the rural mass which conventionally possessing apathy to send girls for higher education.

While appreciating the significant progress achieved by the college, the Peer Team feels it appropriate to make the following suggestions based on the overall analysis and observations.
It is better to construct a separate building and accommodate the Smt. Sushiladevi Deshmukh Senior Arts College which is now functioning in the same premises.

It is essential to initiate steps for starting new courses like B.Com. with Computer / Secretarial Practice and B.Sc. Home Science for the benefit of the women students.

The Management may take steps to upgrade the college by starting P.G. courses in the subjects offered at the under graduate level.

In view of the growing and diversified needs of the students, it is appropriate to provide computer facilities in the library.

The college can explore the chance of starting Vocational Courses suited to the women students with the support of University Grants Commission aid. It is with immense pleasure and happiness that the team wishes the college to attain new academic heights in the days to come and serve the economically and educationally downtrodden rural women folk.
