Media coverage of DAV College, Titilagarh Orissa, Orissa

NAAC report of DAV College

Section 1: Preface
DAV College, Titilagarh, Orissa, volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and conducted the preliminary self-study. The Self-study Report (SSR) was submitted to NAAC by the institution. A Peer Team was constituted by NAAC to visit the institution and validate the SSR. The Peer Team, consisting of Prof. SP Thyagarajan, Former Vice Chancellor, University of Madras, as Chairperson, Prof. PL Vishweshwer Rao, Principal, University College of Arts & Social Sciences, Osmania University, Hyderabad and Fr. Francis Parmar, SJ, Principal, St. Xavier's College, Ahmedabad as members, visited the institution for two days - 23-24 October, 2006. Dr. M. S. Shyamasundar was the NAAC coordinating officer.

DAV College, established in 1968, is a grant-in-aid, rural College affiliated to Sambalpur University. It has a vast campus of 36.92 acres. It has three faculties, namely, Arts, Science and Commerce, presently catering to a total of 708 students at the UG level. There are 68 students in self-financed courses in IT. The College has UGC recognition under 2f from 1997.

The teaching faculty consists of 42 members - 35 permanent and 7 temporary. There are 37 members in the administrative/technical staff. The College has the following support services and facilities: Central Library, Computer Centre, Health Centre, Sports Facilities, Gymnasium, Workshop, Hostel, Guesthouse, Housing, Cycle Stand and Grievance Redressal Cell.

The Peer Team carefully perused and analysed the SSR submitted by the institution. During the institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents, visited departments, acquainted itself with the facilities and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and extension facilities of the institution were taken note of during the visit. The Peer Team also interacted at length with the President of the Governing Body, the Principal, faculty, administrative staff, students, their parents, and alumni-alumnae of the institution. Based on the above exercise, and keeping in mind the criteria identified by NAAC, the Peer Team has taken a value judgment. The assessment of the Institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are listed below.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion 1: Curricular Aspects
As an affiliated college of Sambalpur University, the College has to follow the syllabi prescribed by the parent University for the courses offered. Two of its teachers are in the academic council and the Principal in the Senate of the parent university, thus contributing to syllabus formation of their subjects. The examination is under non-semester (annual) pattern. It offers three UG programmes, namely, B. A, B. Sc. And B. Com. It has eight departments in Arts - Economics, English, Hindi, History, Oriya, Philosophy, Political Science and Sanskrit; one in Commerce with addition of honours in Accounting; and five in Science - Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Zoology. It also offers self-financed courses in Computer Application and Information Technology. The students have limited freedom with regard to elective options.

IT and some of the science and commerce programmes are more directly career oriented.

The College needs to have focused and achievable goals and objectives and work out a detailed plan of action to realise the same. The College could motivate the members of its faculty who are in Academic Council to ensure that the goals and objectives of the institutions are reflected in the curricula set by the University. It could also encourage other staff members to make suggestions to the boards of studies to improve the degree programme.

Introduction of self-financing IT courses is a step in the right direction. The College needs to introduce many more such relevant new courses, especially job-oriented/vocational courses, after making necessary market research. With the exception of IT courses, the same old, traditional courses are offered since the inception of the college. The college could think of introducing more vocational, relevant courses. The College could introduce more multidisciplinary approach in teaching. It would be advisable to further network with business/industry-neighbourhood and get their assistance as well as provide expertise to them.

The College could establish a more formal system of feedback on programs; embark on regular interaction with academic peers and employees, preferably with external experts.

Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
The College admits students based on their academic records. The cut-off point at entry level is 33% for pass and 40% for honours courses. The success rate in the last two batches has been 77% and 46% respectively.

At the start of the academic year, the College prepares an academic calendar. Format is provided to teachers to prepare a teaching plan. College provides proforma to teachers to submit monthly progress report to the Principal. The methods of evaluation are communicated to the students at the beginning of the academic year. The college has 243 working days, of which 180 are teaching days. Full-time teachers do all the teaching.

The College has 35 permanent and 7 temporary teachers. New faculty is recruited according to the government and university regulations. In the last two years, the College has recruited one new faculty, paid by the management.

Self-appraisal, inspection by the Principal as well as appraisal by students is used by way of quality check.

The College encourages its teachers to attend seminars. In the past two years, 8 teachers have attended national level seminars as participants, of whom 2 have been resource person. In the last five years, the College has organised 2 national level seminars. Two of its faculty members are in the Academic Council of the parent University. Through FIP of UGC, 5 during 9th Plan and 2 during 10th Plan have acquired Ph. D Degree.

The College could pay more attention to innovative teaching methods and techniques of using more applications of new technologies and computers.

More frequent assessment of students' knowledge and skills for a particular program after the admission, organisation of bridge/remedial courses, special care of the advance learners, introduction of AV and other teaching aids, organising faculty development programs, institution of teaching awards, more training for both teaching and administrative staff etc. would go a long way to enhance the quality of education. The College could make an effort to establish national and international linkages for teaching as well as research.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The College promotes research mind-set among the teachers through granting study leave and adjusting teaching schedule of those involved in research. 23.8% of its teachers are active in research. 9/35 (25.71%) of the permanent members of the faculty hold a Ph.D. and 11.35 (31.43%) hold an M.Phil. Thus, 57.14% of its permanent teachers have at least one-degree higher qualification. Four of its permanent teachers (11.43%) have publications to their credit. Four are engaged in research for Ph.D. In the last three years, the College has received UGC support of Rs. 2, 34, 560 for a major research project in the Dept of Oriya.

The extension activities of the College are carried out through NSS under the direction of a designated teacher with additional charge. The broad areas of extension activities of the College are community development, social work, health & hygiene awareness, medical camp, adult education & literacy, blood donation camps, AIDS awareness and environment awareness.

Establishment of Research Committee could encourage more research activity. The College could encourage its Ph. D holders to keep up their research work. National and International collaborations should also be attempted by the College to enhance its educational services. The College could give preference in admission and other such incentives to students to participate in extension activities. The staff involved in extension activities could be recognised and honoured for their services. Collaboration with many more NGOs would also be helpful. The College could be more innovative in its extension activities, finding out ways and means to make its expertise available to the general public.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The College is located on a vast campus of 36.92 acres. The physical facilities include central library, lecture rooms, Laboratories, Auditorium, Health Centre, computers in four departments, sports facilities, gymnasium, hostel, Guesthouse, own water supply facility, Housing, separate common rooms for boys and girls, cycle stand and toilet facilities. Maintenance work is taken care of by the Management. The College also has an IGNOU Centre on its campus.

The library has 29, 085 volumes. An advisory committee governs the library. The library works on all working days of the college. In the last two years, the College has added 421 textbooks and 527 other books at the cost of Rs. 1, 38, 417. The Library's subscription to journals/periodicals is reduced from 5 to 3 and the expenses have gone down from Rs. 3, 000 to Rs. 2, 000. No other equipments or facilities are available in the library.

The College provides facilities for outdoor games like badminton and volleyball. Four of its students have been selected to represent the parent University in Football. Addition of many more titles to the library, subscription to more journals, computerization of library, providing facilities like reprography, AV Aids, internet access in the library, centralised computer facility, computerisation of the office work and Computer aided learning packages, making use of inter-university facilities/centres like IUCAA, IAS, INFLIBNET etc. would help to enhance quality of education and services of the College.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The pass percentage of the College in the last two years has been 77% and 46% respectively. Of these, 8.7% and 11% have attained a first class. The percentage of the last two batches of students appearing for the qualifying exams after the minimum period of studies is 86.39% and 91.36%. Thus the dropout/failure rate is 13.6% and 8.64%. Five of its students/staff have passed NET exam and 8 have passed state level administrative/forest/judicial services exams. Some of its alumni have attained middle-level prominent positions in Govt Administration, Banking, education, legal services, health services, politics, entertainment industry etc.

The College publishes updated prospectus every year. The prospectus provides information on admission procedure, courses offered, fee structure, information about various facilities etc.

Though various scholarships and financial assistance schemes of the state government are available to students, no student has profited from the same in last two years. 17 students received prizes from the College in the last academic year. Teachers offer academic guidance on an ad hoc, personal basis.

Recreational and leisure time activities of the College include indoor games, outdoor games, nature club, debate club, student magazine, cultural programs etc.

The pass percentage of the college is good. However, barely 10% of them get a first class. The College could study the causes of the same and help students to achieve excellence in studies. Student Guidance and Employment cell needs strengthening. The College could encourage strengthening of alumni/alumnae association, motivate it to chalk out achievable, time-bound plans for various activities and get its assistance in furthering the educational goals of the College.

Criterion VI: Organisation and Management
There are various committees to take care of different responsibilities in the College. Heads of Departments coordinate their departmental activities under the general supervision of the Principal. Administrative and Financial Bursars monitor work efficiency of the administrative staff.

Providing housing, medical and postal facilities at their doorsteps, giving advance on festive occasions are the welfare schemes of the College.

The College has invited an external agency to evaluate its organisation and management.

Conducting professional development programs for both teaching and administrative/technical staff could be thought of. No matter how good an institution is, there are bound to be grievances. Hence the College would do well to strengthen and publicise Grievance Redressal for staff and students. It would be good to mobilise resources, organise association of past students, get assistance from society at large and offer the benefit of quality education to it in return.

Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The Peer Team notes with appreciation the following healthy practices of the College:

The College has established a system of internal quality check. Inspection by concerned authorities and establishment of several committees for sharing responsibility of various works of the College are the means adopted by the College for internal quality check.

The College offers Computer Education through self-finance mode.

Co-curricular and extracurricular activities serve as sources of imparting some values. Value based instructions too are held on the teachings of Swami Dayanand Saraswati. The College organises various activities through NSS to inculcate civic responsibility. Values like appreciation of classical and folk cultures are kept in mind in organising cultural events.

The College organises co-curricular and extra-curricular events for personality development of the students. There are departmental associations to promote general/transferable skills, team spirit, individual excellence etc among the students by organising various competitions, etc. The students are encouraged to participate in these events and develop their talents.

The College could provide Internet facility, establish more job-oriented/vocational courses after undertaking a thorough market survey. It could experiment with twinning programs, student exchange programs, MoUs with industry and research organisations to become better equipped to perform its role in higher education and achieve its specific goals and objectives.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
The Peer Team, after objective perusal of the SSR, Self-Analysis Report and departmental inputs, undertook interactive visits to all the academic departments, physical facilities and units of the D.A.V. College, Titilagarh, Orissa followed by interactive sessions with students, alumni, parents besides teaching and administrative staff. The overall analysis of the peer team is narrated below:

The D.A.V. College is situated in an environment-friendly vast area of a backward district of Orissa, catering to socio-economically deprived population, predominantly of OBCs, SCs and STs. In its 38 years of existence, the college has sincerely attempted to fulfil its goals of value based education.

The peer team commends the following strengths and academic achievements of the college:

The College is located in one of the most backward regions of the country and primarily caters to students belonging to disadvantaged groups.

There is an excellent academic harmony in the college with good interpersonal relationship among the Management, Principal, faculty, students and parents.

A significant number of faculty members are qualified for the Ph. D degree (11/39) and a good number have registered for their research degree

Faculty members, especially in the Arts and language faculty have participated in a number of seminars and have appreciable number of publications.

The college has the healthy practice of involving several faculty members through various committees in their institutional management.

The college has a functioning hostel for boys, Govt. health centre, Guesthouse, Post office, Quarters for teachers and principal and Gymnasium which are notable infrastructures to facilitate institutional development.

Based on the objective assessment made and feedback received from the section of students, parents, alumni and the staff ( teaching & non teaching) , the peer team provides the following recommendations to achieve their anticipated goals of according high quality higher education to the stake holders.

There is an urgent need to establish a centralised computer centre with internet connectivity in the college to facilitate offering certificate/ Diploma courses to students and computer training for teaching & non-teaching staff. The alumni association's help, which is forthcoming. could be encouraged for this purpose. A functional website of the college has to be developed.

A language laboratory may be established to facilitate computer assisted teaching for students and to bring about translation activities in the language departments and to provide Communicative English skills to students.

The library has to be strengthened with books of recent editions and with subject related national level Journals and magazines to provide updated knowledge and national level exposure to staff and students. The library should also have all reprographic facilities.

The book bank facility for SC/ST and economically weaker sections of students have to be made functional with multiple copies of prescribed text books.

In order to make the Arts and Science subjects attractive to students, the college should plan for introducing non traditional UG courses in the areas of Journalism and Mass Communication, Management, Biotechnology etc. Since there is little scope for acquiring state funding for these courses, self-financing courses are the only option, as the college has done in the case of Information technology and Computer Application, presently.

More job oriented vocational courses at certificate/ diploma/ Advanced diploma levels have to be introduced on a time bound basis. The UGC's carrer oriented programmes of add-on courses in Arts, Commerce and Sciences should be applied for , which would provide seed grants for starting these courses.

It may be necessary for the college to analyse the reasons for low pass percentage and take steps to improve both, pass percentage and the number of first class/ distinction among students.

To promote social orientation and diversify community outreach programmes, greater collaboration with Gram Panchayats and some NGOs may be very useful. Experts from such organisations may be invited to deliver lectures to students on contemporary issues including women-empowerment and for field activities.

The teaching staff of all departments are to be motivated for applying/ securing major/ minor research project grants from funding agencies and to develop industry interaction/ consultancy initiatives which would result in peer-reviewed research publications and students training/ placement . This can be facilitated by constituting a Research committee at the college level with external experts also as members of the committee.

An Internal Quality Assurance cell (IQAC) has to be constituted as per the guidelines of NAAC.

A Students' Career Guidance & Counselling Centre has to be strengthened, preferably with a fulltime staff in-charge of the centre. This centre could manage career guidance placement activities, Grievance Redressal and coaching/ training for appearing for national level competitive examinations for students.

The Peer Team has felt it necessary to record the urgent need of filling up of regular/retirement vacancies and the Govt may take necessary steps in this regard.

The peer team sincerely feels that the present exercise of NAAC accreditation has surely been a rewarding experience for the college and a challenging opportunity for introspection and for further improvement in quality of higher education.

The peer team sincerely thanks the president, Principal, the steering committee coordinators, other faculty members , non teaching staff, past and present students for their cooperation and warmth displayed during the visit. The peer team wishes the college all success in making it as one of the premier institutions of higher learning to achieve its professed objective of empowering the students and providing skills for greater employability.
