SECTION III : OVERALL ANALYSIS
The Gandhi Education Society which was established in 1949 started this college, in the year 1998 with the sole aim of providing educational facility to rural students.

The Peer Team after going through the self-study report and assessing the various academic programmes and infrastructure facilities of the college through its two-day visit, noted a few positive strengths of the college.

POSITIVE STRENGTHS OF THE COLLEGE :
The college has been established to provide higher education to the students from rural areas and educationally and economically backward classes.

The college publishes its prospectus every year in which the scholarship details are also incorporated.

Though the college does not have its own building and infrastructural facilities, it facilitates the running of a distance education centre of Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University,Nashik.

The College makes available all types of scholarships to the students from economically backward classes.

Many teachers have participated in state, university and national level seminars, conferences, etc.

Students are given the chance to develop their personality through participating in various social, cultural and sports competitions which are organised by different institutions and organisations.

There is a conscious endeavour to empower the girls of the area with a) access to education and b)support to them to pursue several types of socio - cultural activities to enable them to gain self confidence.

RECOMMENDATIONS :-
It is desirable to initiate more job oriented courses to enable rural students to secure vocational skills. The courses should be closely related to the local requirement and functional needs. The policy of
' Earn While You Learn' may be adopted. Formal feedback should be obtained from students, academic peers, employers and the local community for restructuring existing courses.

The college may, in addition to above, think of introducing need based and self-financed courses in emerging areas like Information Technology, E-Commerce, International Banking and Finance, etc. to augment its resources as well as to cater to the emerging needs of the student population.

Opening of Science Faculty in addition to existing Arts and Commerce Faculties is a much felt need among the students. Similarly the third year course in Politics, Hindi and Geography also needs to be got sanctioned.

Self assessment may be prepared by teachers against the Teaching Plan that they make at the beginning of the academic year. A plan for self development should also be made by each teacher at the beginning of every academic year. The teachers should be exposed to computers and their applications. All teachers may be encouraged to develop communication skills in English as well as working knowledge of English so that they would be able to access knowledge and information through the Internet.

The college needs to develop a formal mechanism for collection of information frequently from the students with respect to teaching methods, coverage of syllabus and efficiency of teachers.

All the teachers may take up the improvement of their qualifications.

The introduction of peer group evaluation for teachers will promote the quality of teaching further.

All the teachers and students may be involved in extension activities to promote citizenship skills. In a reverse process, the wisdom and experience gained from the community may be utilised by the Institution in the form of documentation for further learning.

Amenities like Health Clinic may be thought of for the students.

Better industry-institution linkages may be established . It is desirable to develop linkages with neighbouring institutions to improve teaching and research.

Sex Education may be introduecd as a part of HIV AIDS Prevention Programme.

CONCLUDING REMARKS :-
It is heartening to note that such an institution with sound basic values has been set up in a rural area - a rarity in our country. The enthusiasm of the students, their relationship with the teachers, the idealism and commitment of the Management, the positive philosophy of every person who is a part of
this institution, are all to be seen to be believed. Inspite of enormous constraints, like dearth of finances,the College is able to take many things in its stride. It organised a cultural programme and raised about Rs. two lakhs for the institution. It also sends its students on study tours to other states for giving exposure to them.

All the teachers are constantly seeking to improve their qualifications. Together with the members of the Management and non - teaching staff, they create a family atmosphere for the students.

The Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University, Nashik has a study centre located in the institution, as mentioned earlier. From this arrangement the College receives about Rs.2.5 lakhs per year.

The environment in this village is historical as many freedom fighters hail from here. Some of them including Krantiagrani G.D. Bapu Lad, are alive and are on the Management Committee to make sure that the mission and values are kept up and the institution is on the rails.

The institution is very young having been started in 1998. Subjecting it to assessment at this stage seems premature.Nevertheless,we have no hesitation to state that it is on the right path and deserves to be encouraged in every way.
