The various options are available for UG/PG students. The syllabi have been prescribed by the University. The college imparts education with English as a compulsory subject associated with Marathi or Hindi as second language. There are some career-oriented courses provided by the College but level of standard - certificate or Degree, is not mentioned. Some of the senior members of the college are the members of the Board of Studies. Senior teachers help in examination process of the University as paper setters, examinations, moderators and custodians.

Many mission & Goals are being practiced by displaying them at entry level, use of audio-visual aids and establishment of Clubs and forums through supporting activities. The students are provided field exposure through visits to Industrial areas and laboratory work is provided in science subjects. The educational tours are conducted for Science and Commerce students.

The College is staffed by 43 teachers (33 Permanent, 09 temporary & 01 part-time) with 09 Ph.D's, 09 M.Phil's, and five with refresher course to cater to the learning needs of 2452 students in all. The Management as per UGC norm does recruitments. The remedial courses are conducted in some of the Subjects. Few of the students who are advanced learners are made to present papers in the seminars and participating in group discussion and they are encouraged to appear for competitive exams. The Teachers are encouraged to prepare the detailed yearly plan of teaching of their respective subjects. The college holds the terminal examinations and the time table of the terminal as well as the annual examinations is displayed on the notice board for the information of the students. During the last two years the college has not recruited any of the member of the teaching staff. However, it has freedom to appoint teaching staff on adhoc or on temporary basis. The Admission policy is based on the academic record. Two of the teaching staff members attended seminars / conferences as participants in the last two years. The teachers are given opportunity to attend National Seminars. The College is publishing the annual magazine 'Vivekanand' and Wallpapers 'Gulmohar'.

The teachers are evaluated on the basis of their performance through Self-appraisal system and student response sheet. This system is appreciable and complies with the UGC norms.

The students evaluation system is based on Terminal Test and their performance is communicated to them by teachers. The rate of drop outs is nearly 30% in UG and 50% in PG. Whereas the success rate is quite satisfactory being nearly 90% in UG and 65% in PG.

Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college is located in semi-urban area on 7 acres of land in the heart of Osmanabad city. There are ten different buildings on the college campus. Out of the 27 rooms spread over on the ground and first floor of the Main Building, 8 rooms are used for the B.Ed. college and the rest are used as Lecture Halls and laboratories of this college. The Science Building has 12 rooms where mainly science laboratories are housed. The Administrative Building has 8 rooms where a multi-purpose hall, college office, Principal's cabin, Guest rooms, etc., are located. The Library Building has 8 rooms where separate Reading room arrangements are made for teachers, boys and girls. The Gymnasium Hall has five rooms with indoor courts and dressing rooms for boys and girls. The Vivekanand Building houses NCC/NSS offices and stores, a multi-purpose hall and a gymkhana hall. Thus, the college has adequate number of rooms fairly distributed in separate buildings situated all over the campus. Besides this, there is an Industrial Fish and Fisheries Building, Principal's quarters and two hostels - one for boys and another for girls and two vastly spread out play grounds on the campus.

The college may, perhaps, better utilise the 8 rooms provided to B.Ed. college for its own purposes. The infrastructure of the college is maintained through the funds provided by the mother institution - Shri Swami Vivekanand Shikshana Sanstha.

The optimum utilisation of its infrastructure is a well planned programme of the college. It works in three shifts :

Morning - Arts and Commerce faculties.

Afternoon - Science faculty.

Evening - Post-graduate classes.

The college playgrounds are used for tournaments conducted at different levels - Taluka /District/University level. The college lecture halls and other infrastructural facilities are made available to conduct MPSC examination, Bank recruitment programme, YCMOU examination and MTS examination, meetings of Life Insurance Company/District Industrial Centre.

The number of journals/periodicals subscribed has come down from 98 during 2000-02 to 80 during 2002-03, since the total cost of these journals/periodicals has gone up marginally by about Rs.1,300/- during the years, subscriptions made for 98 journals may be retained.

The computer centre is kept open from Monday to Sunday between 7.30 am to 6.00 pm. However, on Sundays the facilities of the centre are also made available for B.Lib.Science and M. Lib. Information Technology students. The departments of Commerce and Computer Science have computers of their own. The trained teachers look after the maintenance of computers and their accessories.

The college maintains first-aid kits in the Departments of Physics, Chemistry and in Gymkhana. Medical service facilities are made available for girl students.

The college is proud of its Gymkhana department. The body-building facilities are available in Multi-gym of the college for the students and the staff. The college has facilities for indoor games such as Table Tennis and Badminton and outdoor games facilities like kho-kho, kabaddi, basket ball, volleyball, malkamb, rope climbing, pole vault, wrestling, long jump, hockey and handball. For athletic events, the college has linkage with government stadium. The students have proved their merit in zonal, inter-zonal and state level tournaments. The distinctive feature of the college is its achievements in events like kho-kho, badminton, basket ball and hockey. The college boasts of highest number of Chhatrapati Shivaji Award [government of Maharashtra] winners are from their college Alumni.

Hostel facilities are available for boys and girls. The boys' hostel has 20 rooms that can accommodate 60 students and the girls' hostel has 12 rooms that can accommodate 20 students.

Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
The success rate of the college students at undergraduate is highly satisfactory. It was 88.63% during 2002 and 91.93% during 2003 examinations. The success rate of post-graduate students which was 71.69% during 2002 has come down to 63.28% during 2003 examination. The dropout rate at both undergraduate and post-graduate level has gone up from 20.04% to 36.98% and 47.86% to 50.94% respectively. The college may try to find out the reasons for the same and adopt suitable measures to minimize the dropout rate. During the last two years 3 students at UG level and 2 students at PG have obtained the university rank. Six students have passed SET examination during the last five years.

The college publishes its updated prospectus every year for the information of the students. It contains information regarding admission rules, staff, discipline, library, fee structure, hostels, subjects taught, scholarships and several other support services. The Central and State government scholarships are available to students belonging to SC/ST/NT/EBC and handicapped groups. Besides this, the college has instituted Dhirubhai Ambani scholarship and Eklavya scholarship to students.

The college does not have an employment cell and a placement officer as to offer career counseling to students. However, when the students approach with their problems and difficulties, the teachers try to solve them satisfactorily. The college has formed alumni association recently. It is yet to initiate meaningful activities for its members and help develop college in whatever capacities possible for itself.

Indoor games, outdoor games, student magazine, debate club, essay writing, cultural programmes, dance, music competitions, audio-video facilities are the recreational/leisure time facilities available to students. These facilities need to be strengthened further.

The NSS unit of the college has adopted a village for its development during the Latur Earth quack - Killari the volunters of the N.S.S. have helped the Earth quack affected people in a big way.

The college has an active NCC unit. A good number of cadets have attended Annual Training Camp, passed 'B' and 'C' certificate examinations. A cadet was selected for RD Parade and another cadet was the winner of NCC Chief Minister's Scholarship. The NCC unit of the college stood first in Drill competition and got a shield. The activities of the NCC unit is well appreciated by the Peer Team Committee.

However, Peer Teem Committee feels that the newly introduced system of student feed-back programme be regularised and the responses gathered thereby, may be accepted to help improve the academic activities of the college. The college may do well to encourage the students to appear for the GATE/NET/SET, etc., examinations. The counseling services may need to be taken up in organized ways. The college may consider to actively encourage the alumni to chalk out purposeful programmes every year.

The college has an internal audit mechanism newly introduced by the management. Some of the students who are economically backward and need financial assistance are provided with part-time jobs in library and the college garden. These activities are reckoned with appreciation.

SECTION -III : Overall Analysis
Osmanabad was one of the most backward districts of the earstwhile Hyderabad State ruled by Nizam. After the reorganization of the States in India in 1956 the district comes under the Marathwada region, a backward region in Maharashtra State. It was not only a socio - economically backward region but also for the purpose of higher educations not a single college was started in Osmanabad before the re-organization of the State.

It was a visionary like Bapuji Salunkhe with a motto of spreading knowledge, science and culture ( Dnayan Vidnyan and Susanskhar) and in response to the long standing and cherished needs of the people, Osmanabad was selected to establish the college in 1959. Now the college is developed in various ways with 33 permanent , 9 temporary and 1 Part-time teacher with total student population of 2452.

Besides the healthy features mentioned in Criteria -VII the Peer Team wishes to commend the college for the following. :

Running Credit Co-operative Society not merely for the employees of the college but also to the employees of the colleges run by the Sanstha in the neighbouring two districts of Osmanabad.

For the purpose of the consideration of the college the Peer Team wishes to make the following suggestions.:

Teachers should take interest in improving their qualifications applying for F.I.P. & Minor Research projects. They should also take part in attending various seminars and conferences etc.
