SECTION - 2 : CRITERION- WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION 1 : CURRICULAR ASPECTS
Raje Ramrao Mahavidyalaya Jath, Maharastra is a co-education College affiliated to Shivaji University, Kolhapur. It offers three UGC degree programs in Arts, Commerce and Science. In B.A., English, Marathi, Hindi, Economics, Political Science, History and Geography subjects are included. Advanced Accounting, and Industrial Management are offered in B.Com. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Botany and Zoology are offered in B.Sc. The College is also offering B.Sc. in Computer Science on self-finance basis.
Majority of the programs offered by the college are based on conventional mode. However, the subject namely, Industrial Management included in the B. Com. syllabus is of career oriented or job oriented. This way the college is committed with its mission of spreading education for knowledge, science and inculcating cultural values.
Some of the teachers are members of BOS and Academic Committee of the University. Such teachers bring appropriate changes in the curricula. It is an affiliated college, as such it can't review or redesign existing syllabus at its own level. Generally the college takes one year to introduce new academic programme.
The college has introduced only one programme i.e. B.Sc. in Computer Science in 2001 during the last thirteen years. The college may think of offering diploma/certificate courses, which are valuable to the area and also according to the need of the local society. The college is yet to develop formal mechanism to get feedback from academic peers and employers to assess the compatibility of the programme offered by the college or to initiate need based courses.
Students of commerce department visit the industrial establishment of Sangli district. Similarly, students of economics organize visit to banks in the area. These visits help students to have practical exposures of their study.
The college may offer some P.G. course specially Marathi and Economics which would help the students of the college mostly from the rural villages of Sangli district to move vertically.

Teachers prepare detail plan of teaching for every academic year. The periodic meeting at the departmental level monitors the effective completion of the syllabus. The classroom teaching is of conventional lecture method. In the wake of advanced technology development, there is a need to develop classroom teaching with latest teaching aids like audio visual, projectors, LCD etc. The teachers give home assignment to students and conduct unit tests thrice in a year. Terminal examinations conducted help in assessing the performance of the students and thereby enable them to prepare for the university examination. The college conducts various quiz programs to enhance the general knowledge of the students.
There are 27 teachers appointed by the college based on the guidelines of Shivaji University and the State Government. The management also appoints temporary teachers to fill up the positions under Stop-Gap Arrangements.
The college follows self-appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the teachers as per the guidelines of the U.G.C. Teachers evaluation by the students ensures transparency and accountability of teaching learning. It is therefore suggested that teacher's evaluation by the students may be introduced early.
The college authorities encourage the teachers to participate seminars/conference/workshops at national and international level. College also encourages teachers to undergo Faculty Development Programme, such as orientation and refresher course. Department of English has organized two one-day workshops for the benefits of teachers teaching English.
Three teachers have received meritorious award of teaching from Shivaji University. 'Ramvijay', a yearly publication and 'Vijay' a wallpaper brings out achievements made by the college as a whole.

N.C.C. a strong unit help N.S.S. to develops extension activities. All these activities carried out taking support of the teacher.
The college has hardly any consultancy, which is very important to make higher Educational Institution financially stronger. The Peer Team suggest that Department of Commerce and Management having potential can offer consultancy service for the benefit of the college.
IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources .
The Infrastructure and Learning Resources that provide support to teaching learning process in the college include halls for lectures, rooms for the Principal and administration, rooms for the faculty , laboratory for science departments Central Library, Computer Center, Language Lab, Gymkhana, Ground for Sports, Laboratories for Science Departments ,rooms for N.S.S. and N.C.C. activities and room for the women Students. The college, however, does not have a canteen, Health center, and Hostels for boys and girls. The college has also started a book bank facility for the benefit of students besides receiving them through the central Library which function under the guidance and advice of a Library Committee constituted for the purpose. The Botany Department maintains a small Botanical Garden. There are other facilities such as portable generator, cooler to provide drinking water , toilets for boys and girls, cycle stand and news paper reading room.

The College utilizes its infrastructral facilities optimally by sharing with junior college. The college also extends facilities to operate a center of Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University,Nashik. The college may construct hostel for its boys and girls. The college central library need to be strengthened in many ways. The management of library calls for more professional approach in maintaining the accession registers,classification of books arrangement of stacks. The annual budget for the college library is inadequate. The library subscribed only a very few journals established in top small. The college may subscribe atleast five (5) journals (Indian) in each subject . The language Lab set up in the college is good for a beginning and it can be strengthened to offer short term program in spoken English to the people in the neighbourhood. The computer center has internet facility, but its use by the faculty as well as students is limited. The faculty as well as students should be encouraged to use internet. The computer center may also offer some short term programs to people in the neighbourhood to spread computer literacy and to encourage people in the drought hit area.
The college may consider earmarking some space for cultural activities and also provide instruments for the same. The college may also consider provide for health center on a permanent based for the benefit of students, faculty, and non teaching staff. There is also need to strengthend the laboratories attached to science departments. There are many schemes that U.G.C. has made available for the benefit of college in rural areas. May be the college can take leverage out of these schemes. To develop the infrastructure facilities. The college has very good facilities for sports and games. It has Gymkhana with multigym facilities, playground for football,handball,cricket kabadi kho-kho and basketball besides 400 meter athletic tracks
CRITERION-V : STUDENTS SUPPORT AND PROGRESSION
The progress of students in any college hinges up on the support that college provides. There are two areas here students look up for college support. One is placement support for employment, two is support to move up vertically or horizontally in academic persuits. The college may address the problem urgently by instituting a placement and career counseling The college at present does not provide for vertical mobility in academic Pursuits as it does not offer courses in Post Graduate level. At the same time, it also does not provide for horizontal mobility for students in Program option. As such it may consider to plan for need based and relevant educational programs at graduate, post graduate, and diploma level.
The students drop out rate in Arts, Science, & Commerce is not only high, but it is also increasing every year. The college maylook into the reasons for this and do the needful. The importance of alumni association needs no emphasis. As a matter of fact,alumini always comes to the rescue of the college for raising moneyy for the college, Strengthening linkages with industry and giving support to students for placement. The college has no alumni association at present. It should be formed immediately and strengthend. There are many schemes of financial aid central state, and students avail all these. The faculty is reported to have been very helpful to students not only in professional matters but also in providing guidance and counseling students in their personal problem. However the college may consider to plan for a separate guidance and counseling cell and run it in a professional way.
The college bring out a magazine once in a year and give opportunity to student to give expresion to their literary talents. It is really good. The college brings out every year its prospectus containing full information about the management, Courses it offers, admission Criteria, fees and others in a professional way. This is again good. Another good support service that college provides is organizing every year three quizzes- Science,General and economics quizzes. This is in addition to organizing many other competitions and exhibition. One of the best support service that college gives a by organizing an active N.C.C. wing. The college as a result has produced a senior under officer who won a bronze medal from the Duke of Edinburgh at the international level.
