Section 3 : Overall Analysis
The Peer Team, after having gone through the Self-Study Report and on-site visit of the institution, is of the view that the goals and objectives of the institution are being pursued seriously. There are a number of good features of the college which the Peer Team would like to commend and also voice the concerns for its future growth. The Peer Team appreciates the following aspects:
The college over the years has diversified its curriculum and introduced innovative courses in the emerging areas of Management and Information Technology, in tune with the market requirements and societal needs. The college has also taken initiative to introduce M.Com. course at PG level, recently.
The college has also introduced a few courses in the self-financed category, that has helped the institution in generating resources and thus reducing dependence on state government.
Students in several disciplines are assisted in their learning process through modern teaching methods. Teachers' evaluation by the students and self-appraisal provides valuable feed back. Students' performance is assessed through internal tests and assignments.
The principal, teachers and non-teaching staff are quite dedicated and devoted to their institution. There is complete harmony among all of them and team work is in evidence.
The management of the college provides enough support to the institute and encourages teachers for research and other academic work. The management has provided in the college budget a sum of Rs. 1 lakh for these activities. However, this amount is not being utilized.
The teachers are recruited on merit as per the UGC and State Government rules.
The college lays emphasis on imparting value based education to the students through class room teaching, NSS and other cultural activities.
The college has adequate infrastructure and support services and the same are put to an optimum use. There is also a well equipped gymkhana. The college library and offices are being computerized.
The college organizes various events and activities for the overall personality development of students round the year. Students and teachers are encouraged to participate in all these activities.
While appreciating the progress of the college, the Peer Team wishes to suggest the following, for the future growth of the institution:
The college may think of opening some new courses like B.Sc. (Bio-technology), evening classes and courses like Home Science, Women Entrepreneurship etc. for better employment.
The college could recruit some more teachers with management qualifications instead of M.Com. on regular basis to run BMS course more effectively.
The college results in annual examinations have been better than the University results. This is a significant achievement in the sense that the college, follows an open admission policy for B.Com..
There is a need to pay more emphasis on interactive learner-centred teaching methods, with the help of LCD, OHP, TV, CD Players etc. Relevant softwares be procured for B.Com. and BMS students.
Ways and means have to be found to make the students of the college more motivated, so as to compete well in NET and other competitive examinations, at national level.
The courses of study which are not revised and updated should be revised in tune with UGC recommendations.
Efforts need to be made persistently to get UGC recognition under 2f and 12B
The management needs to encourage more teachers to obtain Ph.D. Degree to strengthen the academic base of the college. Teachers could also apply for minor / major research projects from funding agencies like ICSSR, ICHR, MHRD, management, etc. For this, the Research Committee (RC) may further be activated.
Sports persons need further encouragement and motivation. Efforts to purchase land for college playgrounds, in its vicinity, should continue.
Outreach programmes of the college need to be broadened and expanded to enhance the reputation of the institution in the poorer colonies of the city.
NCC unit may be started in the college.
The Peer Team is happy to note the contribution of the college in spreading quality education in this part of the city. The institution has ample scope for further growth. The Peer Team envisages a bright future for the college in the years ahead.
The members of the Peer Team would like to thank the Principal, Co-ordinator, Faculty, Non-teaching Staff, Students, NGOs, Parents and Alumni for their cooperation and assistance during the visit of the NAAC Peer Team.
