SECTION: 2 Criterion Wise Analysis
Criterion -I Curricular Aspects
The goals and objectives of the institution are well defined. The college was established in 1960 with the purpose of providing the opportunities of higher studies to women. The institution aims to impart the knowledge relevant to society and community development. The degree courses run here are planned according to the norms of the affiliating University.
The college caters to the educational needs of women of this area. It runs at present UG and PG courses in the Faculty of Arts and a vocational program in Advertisement, Sales Promotion and Sales Management in both aided and self-financing modes. It is recognized as a research centre in English, Drawing and Painting and Hindi. Some of the programs offered here are job oriented in nature.
The College is responsive to the academic growth of students and invites academically renowned persons to share their expertise and experiences with the students. Besides, the students are given training by field visits, group discussions, project work and writing of assignments and dissertations. The college has not established any formal linkages with any institution/industry.
Being an affiliated college, it has to follow the syllabi prescribed by the affiliating university. There is little scope for designing curriculum and its review on the part of the college. But some of the faculty members who are also members of the Board of Studies in various subjects contribute in suggesting changes in the syllabi as and when possible.
Criterion - II Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The students are admitted on the basis of their academic record in the qualifying examination. The college also follows statutory reservation policy of the State Government in its admissions.
The college publishes its Prospectus to provide requisite information to students about admission procedure, availability of courses and seats, fee structure etc. Rules regarding the library, sports, university examination, general conduct and discipline are also provided in the Prospectus. The plan of the academic work followed by the college is that of the annual system for both of its self-financing courses and aided courses.

Teachers seldom make teaching plan and the syllabi are not unitized according to the teaching schedule but the targets are met.
The college promotes student-teacher interaction and communication for better teaching- learning possibilities. This process includes lectures by experts, field visits and monitoring of students' progress by periodical class tests. The college may also consider including seminar presentations, tutorials, feedback from students for enhancing the academic atmosphere. The regular teachers are appointed by the management after they are selected by the Higher Education Commission, UP. Part-time teachers are appointed by the selection committee comprising the management, the Principal and a subject expert from the University. Creation of new posts is a far cry. Even the existing vacant posts are not filled for years. The post of a lecturer in Economics is vacant since 2001 and a post in sociology is vacant since 2003. In addition, the institution appoints teachers on lecture basis as per the requirements of teaching load in a subject especially for self-financing courses.

No faculty member has so far availed of any benefit under the FIP scheme of the UGC.
A teacher has been given additional charge for conducting extension activities which include programs related to NSS, Community Development, Health and Hygiene awareness, adult women literacy, AIDS awareness, environmental awareness, training for food preservation among the slum dwellers, etc .The college has two units of NSS with 200 students who undertake such activities.
