Section 1 :Preface
Arts, Science and Commerce college, Ramanandnagar (Burli), in Taluk: Palus, Dist: Sangli (Maharashtra), affiliated to Shivaji University, Kolhapur was established in June 1968 with the efforts of 'The Rayat Shikshan Sanstha', one of the largest Educational Society in Maharashtra. At present the Sanstha runs about 671 Institutions of learning, of which 432 are Secondary schools, 40-degree colleges, and 157 junior colleges catering to the remote, rural, and backward sections of the State. This College at Ramanandnagar was the first-degree college established at village level in Maharashtra. Even today there is no post office at Ramanandnagar.

The College has a campus over an area of five acres. The College offers Under Graduate programmes in Science, Arts, and Commerce, and one Post Graduate programme in History. The College has qualified faculty of thirty permanent and four temporary Teachers, out of which 5 have acquired Ph.D. Degree, 10 have M.Phil. and one teacher is doing her Ph.D. The student strength is 685 of which 25 are in the postgraduate course. There are 303 women students on roll, which constitutes about 48% of the total student strength. It is observed that the students' strength has been decreasing due to the establishment of new colleges in close proximity of the college. The students are largely from the nearby rural areas. The College is a private managed Grant-in-Aid institution under Government of Maharashtra. It got UGC recognition in 1972 under section 2(f) and 12(B) and has been receiving UGC grants since.

Arts, Science and Commerce College, Ramanandnagar (Burli) volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council by submitting their self-study report in September 2003.

The team visited the institution for two days i.e. from 5th to 6th January 2004. The Peer Team carefully perused and analyzed the self-study report submitted by the College. During institutional visit, Peer Team went through the relevant documents, visited the departments and interacted with the various constituents of the institution.

The Peer Team also interacted at length with the Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, Satara, Principal, faculties, students, non-teaching staff, parents and alumni of the institution. 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.

As an affiliated College of Shivaji University, Kolhapur the College has to follow the syllabi, curricula, and examination pattern prescribed by the University. Although some of the teachers serve as members of Board of Studies of Shivaji University, Kolhapur. The curricula of the University are neither modularly structured nor interdisciplinary in approach. The regulation of the university does not have provision for flexibility in time frame and horizontal mobility.

The college, however, prepares its own syllabus for English Remedial Coaching. Similarly, the college also designs its syllabus for competitive examinations that it offers taking in to account the syllabus of Public Service examinations.

It is satisfying to note that the College is able to introduce new programme with in a year with the present university system. The College with the permission of the Sanstha has to apply simultaneously to the University and the Director of Higher Education, Maharashtra for sanction of grants and permission to introduce new courses. But the college so far has not taken any initiative in this regard.

The College has established good links with the local industrial houses like Kirloskar Brothers Ltd., Kranti Co-operative Sugar Factory, Sonhira co-operative Sugar Factory, Tasgaon Co-operative Sugar Factory, where good number of former students are employed.

The college and the Sanstha has an exhaustive list of the goals and mission aiming at; (a) removing general backwardness of the area, (b) providing opportunity of higher education for the women, (c) enabling the students to accept the challenges of the new era, (d) inculcating moral values, etc. The college should contemplate to introduce some career and job-oriented self-financing courses.
