Media coverage of FC College for Women, Hisar Haryana, Haryana
NAAC report of Fateh Chand College for WomenSection 1: Preface
Fateh Chand College for Women was established in the year 1935 at Lahore. The College was established by a philanthropist, Rai Fateh Chand. He realized that for the awakening of the society it was necessary to educate and enlighten the women of the country. In fact this is heartening to note that during those days when the colleges were being established by different religious sections, castes and other regional groups, this college adopted a policy of equal treatment of everybody and it is a secular institution that is why it attracted the help of many important citizens directly or indirectly.
Although at the initial stage the college was well looked-after financially and academically, at the time of partition it was closed due to the political reasons and its entity went into history. Eventually some of the students and relations of Rai Fateh Chand who belonged to Hisar realized that the legacy of the institution like F. C. College should not remain confined to pages of history. Due to their efforts this college was re-established in the year 1954 at Hisar, which was then backward part of the undivided Punjab of the independent India.
This multi-faculty college offers courses in Arts, Science and Commerce. New courses have been introduced from time to time keeping in view the needs of the society from time to time. The hallmark of this institution has been the right combination of value education and development of overall personality of the students through academic, cultural and sports activities.
The college endeavors to promote cultural facilities and to strengthen them by linking with the society. Nationalism and patriotism are also imbibed in the system in view of its glorious historical past and the spirit of its founders.
The college is situated in the heart of the city in a land measuring eight acres. Due to its location it is very convenient for the parents to send their daughters fearlessly to the campus. Besides the various teaching departments and administrative blocks there are play-grounds, hostel, auditorium with adjoining common room, staff quarters for unmarried teachers and servants quarters apart from the Principal's residence.
This is the first college in the entire state of Haryana to offer itself for Assessment and Accreditation by NAAC.
It is also worthwhile to mention that the college is looked after by a highly capable and dedicated Board of Management. The emotional attachment of the teachers, students, administrative and other staff of the college is appreciable. Everybody talks very high of the institution and feels his/her responsibility towards it, which ensures a very congenial and family type atmosphere.
Fateh Chand College for women volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted its self-study report. A peer team was constituted by the council to visit the institution and validate the self-study report. The peer team consisting Prof. Vinod P. Saxena, Former Vice-Chancellor of Jiwaji University, Gwalior as Chairman and Dr. Arvind Mohan, Director, Development and Planning & Director, College Development Council, Lucknow University and Dr. Rita Bawa, Principal, Kanya Maha Vidyalay, Jalandhar as Members visited the institution for three days during May 20-22,2002 with Dr. M.S. Shyamasundar, Assistant Adviser, NAAC functioning as the Coordinating Officer.
The peer team examined in detail the performance of the institution, its infrastructure, curricular and co-curricular programmmes, and other relevant aspects of its functioning. The peer team also held discussions with the members of the faculty, the present students, alumni, parents and non-teaching staff in addition to the Principal and members of the Managing Council, to get a holistic perspective of the functioning of the College. The following report is based on the academic interaction worked out by the Peer Team.
