The Peer Team interacted at length with the Principal, GB members, teaching & non-teaching staff, Students, Alumni and Parents. The observations of the team on various assessment Criteria are given below.

CRITERION I: Curricular Aspects
The upliftment of women through education by inculcating the intellectual, moral, political, ethical and cultural values was the vision with which this college was established. It was due to the belief that the educated women can change the society. The activities are centred around this goal. The College offers education up

to undergraduate level and follows the syllabus and examination system as prescribed by the Dibrugarh University, Assam. The students have flexibility to pursue a programme with respect to Elective options. The College takes one year to introduce a new programme within the university system. Recently the college has introduced some job oriented vocational courses under self- financed scheme. The college takes feedback from students about the teaching and other activities of the institute.

Criterion II: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The students are admitted in different courses of the college on the basis of merit. Majority of teachers impart instruction through lecture method. They do dictate notes which may better be discontinued, with the material made available in the library for reference by the students. Some teachers use teaching aids available in their department. The medium of instruction is Assamese as well as English. The class size in some courses is too small. So teachers do use Seminar as a method of teaching. Teachers give assignments and take unit tests. There is a scope to innovate methods of teaching and use of Information Technology. It has a well planned mechanism of assessing the student's knowledge and skills for a particular programme. The college has a well framed plan for monitoring student's progress. The college has provision for organising remedial courses for disadvantaged students. The college encourages teachers for preparing teaching plans.

Some departments take their students for field trips for gaining hands-on experience. Out of 215 working days, the teaching days are 185. The college takes appropriate steps for intimating the students about the examination system at the beginning of the academic session. The faculties are recruited by strictly following UGC and State Higher Education Department norms. The college has autonomy to appoint temporary and ad hoc teaching staff. The college has well planned self appraisal method for evaluating the faculty for teaching, research and extension activities.

CRITERION III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
Few teachers have completed their Ph.D. degree while some are in the process of completing. Still teachers need to be motivated to pursue their research for the Ph.D degree as well as send proposals for funding from agencies like, UGC, ICSSR, CSIR, DBT, MHRD, etc. Teachers have attended conferences and seminars and presented papers but it needs to be further encouraged. They should publish papers in esteemed journals. Teachers are granted study leave for carrying out their research works. The various extension activities undertaken are community development, social work, health hygiene and environmental awareness. The college has an active NSS and NCC units through which the students are involved in various community oriented work at the local and village levels.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college is located in an urban setting and in a campus area of 5.28 acres. The college has its plan for further development. It has a central library with approximately 18,000 books and journals and computer facility. There is a healthy

Inter library borrowing system existing in the college. The library is yet to develop data base with the help of appropriate software. The library has 217 working days.

The computer facility is made available to those students who pay for it. The fee charged per student is Rs. 200=00 per month and it is managed by Tata Infotech.

Tata Infotech has provided eight computers with a teacher. The internet facility is not available for the time being but they have a provision to provide Internet facility.

The college has some spacious classrooms but the faculty rooms in the departments are too small. All science laboratories including home science, education, geography, etc. need to be strengthened. The college has an effective mechanism for maintenance and optimal utilization of its existing infrastructure. The need for augmenting the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth is taken care of under the supervision of the Work Committee. The existing infrastructure is also maintained by regular repairing, face lift etc, The college takes constant effort to keep the campus clean and green.

CRITERION V: Student Support and Progression
The college publishes its prospectus and syllabi annually which is very much helpful to students. It has a well built in mechanism for collecting feedback from students. The governance is dependent on the principles of collective participation. Modern management practices are followed to a certain extent in the college. The college has also some welfare schemes for all its constituents. It has a grievance redressal cell for students, teaching and non-teaching staff.

The college has girls hostel where 120 students can be accommodated. It is well maintained. There is a provision for health care, recreation, etc. There is proper discipline both in the college and hostel. One of the teachers is the warden and a full time superintendent. The college built this hostel with funding from UGC and Tribal Welfare Department. The important newspaper cuttings related to different courses, vocations, etc. are displayed on the notice board for the benefit of the students. The students are encouraged into publishing wall magazines. There is a provision to learn yoga. Facilities such as canteen, girls common room, indoor and outdoor games and sports are available to the students.

While the student success rate in the university examinations is relatively high, the progression to higher education seems to be not very encouraging. The college management may like to take up special initiative for providing required guidance and encouragement in this direction. Likewise, though the enrollment is very high due to the compulsory admission policy of admitting the students with minimum pass percentage, it has resulted in the high drop-out rate which is above 50 %. Though this has been explained to be also aggravated due to the prevailing social practices, the college may take a serious view of this and think of appropriate measures to improve the situation.

CRITERION VI: Organisation and Management
There is a good mechanism for academic and administrative planning in the institution. The governance of the administrative and teaching departments of the college is based on principles of collective participation. Modern management practices have been introduced in the college. There is a good financing system of

the college and an internal audit mechanism. The programmes and functioning of the institute are cost-effective. The college has also a good resource mobilization strategy. There is a special committee in the college for preparation of students' academic calendar. The organization and management of the college are being run through effective functioning of several committees like appointment, works, library advisory, examination, students' grievance cell and counseling and infrastructure development committees. The college has plans and programmes of future development chalked out by the collective wisdom of the members of the above mentioned committees.

The unaided unit of the science stream of the college has been started with contributions from the local community, staff and the students of the college with the aim of providing science education to the students keeping the global scenario and employment opportunities in view. However, it is unfortunate to note that the efforts of the institution have not so far been recognized by any funding agencies in strengthening the programme. With low enrollment rate in this faculty and the inputs required for the infrastructural development, the staff are being paid comparatively a low salary. The management may put in efforts to bring in funds for proper development and remuneration of the staff.

CRITERION VII: Healthy Practices
The key healthy practice of the college is displayed by its adaptability to the contemporary needs of educational, social and market demands. The institution is also amply geared up to promote an atmosphere of creativity and innovation. The students of this college are enthused to participate in union and other extra curricular activities. The college takes constant effort for community orientation through its NCC, NSS and other activities. The other mentionable healthy practice is the team spirit of collective working by the teaching and non-teaching staff, students, management, alumni and guardians. It is worth mentioning that one alumna has already donated Rs 2,00,000/- for establishing internet facilities in the college and the alumni association is taking active interest for developing the college by mobilizing resources of different kind.

The students and teachers of this college, especially from the science stream, have contributed towards the infrastructural development of the science laboratory and the overall departmental facilities which needs special mention and appreciation.

Overall Analysis:
The Peer Team during its visit validated the self study report and after carefully interacting with the college community, alumni, guardians, parents and assessing its existing infrastructural and other facilities noted that the college has made fair attempt to translate its vision and goal into academic practices.
