Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the criteria identified by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, the Peer Team has taken up the assessment and accreditation of the college.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The college being affiliated to Shivaji University Kolhapur follows the syllabi prescribed by the University for all the courses at the UG level in the annual pattern. The faculty of science offers B.Sc. with Physics, Chemistry, Microbiology, Botany and Computer Science. In arts faculty courses are offered in Marathi, Hindi, English and Geography. However, students have choice of subjects like political science, economics, sociology and history at B.A.-I and II. Accountancy is offered in faculty of commerce.

Science), B.C.S. and D.C.M. are offered in the self-financed mode.

The college offers one and half years 'Post Graduate Diploma In Medical Laboratory Technology', an 'Advanced Diploma In Computer Software System Analysis And Applications' of one year duration and ' Diploma In Interior Design And Decoration' affiliated to Maharashtra State Board of Technical Education. Some of the other courses of short duration available are computer course in ' Desk Top Publishing', certificate course in ' Computer Programming' , ' Computer Certificate Course' and certificate courses in ' Computer Operations', 'Computer Applications' and certificate course in 'Spoken English'.

Kanya Chhand Mandal of the college offers wide ranging job oriented courses like Embroidery, Tailoring and Cutting, Ceramic work, Cloth painting, Mehandi, Soft-toys etc. The courses are approved by the Adult Education Department of Shivaji University and are of duration varying from 10 to 90 days. The activities of the Mandal are noteworthy and Praiseworthy.

As part of curricular activities students visit industries, factories, bank and credit societies in the area. The programmes offered in the college, broadly, are in line with the goals of the institution. However, a systematic feedback needs to be obtained from academic peers and employers to assess the strength of the programmes offered and to introduce newer courses, particularly, in social sciences.

Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
Students are admitted to BA, B.Sc. and B.Com courses based on the past academic record and as per the rules and regulations of Shivaji University and Government of Maharashtra. Entrance tests are conducted for admissions to B.C.S and D.C.M courses and interviews are held for ADCSSAA and PG-DMLT courses. Out of the total 235 working days there were 192 teaching days during last academic year.

Though college does not offer remedial course in English, students have the provision to enroll themselves for a certificate course in Spoken English. Extra-coaching is provided to students with poor performance in examinations. Bright students are identified and given special coaching, library and laboratory facilities. They are provided with a Scholar Student Card to avail various facilities. Efforts are made in the college to supplement the conventional lecture method of teaching by learner-centered methods like projects, organizing seminars, special lectures, quiz competitions, general knowledge tests, essay writing, elocution competition and industrial visits.

The teachers make their teaching plans every year. The performance of the students throughout the year is monitored by tests, seminars and terminal examination. The results of the college at the University Examinations result are good and performance of some of the students is also noteworthy. It is nice to note that students who do not appear for tests and terminal examination are fined and also made to solve the tests and terminal examination papers.

Teachers are recruited as per UGC and University norms. Of the total of 36 teachers 3 hold Ph.D. degree, two have submitted the thesis, 3 have registered for Ph.D. degree, 14 teachers possess M. Phil degrees and one has submitted M.Phil Dissertation. Teachers are encouraged to participate in refresher and orientation courses, seminars and workshops.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
Management of the college encourages teachers to pursue research. Teachers are provided with seed money for research and teaching schedule is adjusted to promote research work.

The concept of formal consultancy is yet to take roots in the college.

The college undertakes a variety of multifaceted extension activities like social work, rallies, medical camp, tree plantation, AIDS awareness, Literary mission programmes, Environment awareness, anti-superstition movement, antiaddiction rallies etc. It regularly organises the Blood donation camps.

Ambedkar Dalit Mitra Sanstha Puraskar in 2001-02 and a State Level award for Educational Institutes in 2002. The college has been recognised for its extension activities by NGOs.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The area of the campus is 2.5 acres. The laboratories, class rooms, library, computer lab and office are located in a main building with two floors. An engineer appointed by the society supervises the maintenance of the infrastructural facilities. Maximum utilization of infrastructure facilities is ensured by using the laboratories, and class rooms for running a junior college and high school belonging to the society. Facilities are also extended to NGOs in Islampur.

The library in the college contains a total of 11618 books, 50 periodicals/ journals and dailies. The library is also used by the junior college. The library is kept open on all working days between 08:00 am and 04:00 p.m .
The advisory committee for the library looks after the maintenance and development of the library. The library is in the process of computerization.

Criterion V: Students Support and Progression
Sufficient information about the college is published in the prospectus annually giving details of admission procedures, duration of terms, programmes offered, timings, tuition fees, students welfare schemes, and tests and terms examination and information regarding co-curricular and extracurricular activities. It is observed that the number of students appearing for qualifying examination is small compared to the number admitted at the entry level. Percentage of students of the college securing employment and pursuing higher studies is significant.

There is no separate employment/ placement cell in the college. The teachers offer informal academic and personal counseling to the students. Many of the students of the college are self-employed.

A 'Who is Who' of the important Alumni can be prepared. It needs to be strengthened and activated to undertake various activities in the over all interest of the college.

The Kasegaon Education Society which manages the college has been recognized by the Government of Maharashtra for its pioneering work in the area of education, and social work. Management is dynamic and very much concerned about the all-round development of the college. Apart from a Local Managing Committee constituted as per the requirement of statutes of Maharashtra University Act, there are various committees in the college to assist the principal in managing the day-to-day affairs of the college in a democratic way. All the committees co-ordinate with each other. Heads of various departments have been empowered to formulate needed policies in consultation with faculty members.

At the beginning of every academic year a meeting of non-teaching staff is held and distribution of work is discussed. College encourages the non-teaching staff to participate in the professional development programmes organized by the University and Government. It is to be noted that all the members of the non-teaching staff have completed a three month course in 'Diploma in Information Technology'.

The Kasegaon Education Society's Kanya Mahavidyalaya ( Arts, Commerce and Science) established in 1989 now with 967 students on its roll at undergraduate level in Arts, Science, Commerce, and Computer Science takes its legitimate pride in spreading Higher Education among Women in this part of Maharashtra.
