Media coverage of Kumari Vidyavati Anand DAV College for Women, Karnal Haryana, Haryana
NAAC report of Kumari Vidyavati Anand DAV College for WomenSection 1 : Introduction
Profile of the Institution
Kumari Vidya Vati Anand D.A.V College for Women, Karnal with the distinction of being the first girl's college in the state of Haryana, is a good example of how spiritual inspiration has translated into concrete action. Inspired by Swami Dayananda Saraswati's vision of the potential in women and the need to educate them, three dedicated social workers of Karnal established this college in the year 1958. For 28 years it was run under the banner of Dayananda Educational Trust and Society, Karnal, after which it was handed over to DAV College Managing Committee, New Delhi. The DAV Management which has 700 educational institutions, across all parts of India & abroad, under its banner follows a definite and unique pattern of imparting value systems to its institutions, both in terms of sensitizing the leaders of the institutions as well as institutionalizing certain practices like the performance of periodic havans and lectures on Vedic philosophy. The Management is also aware of the growing needs of students in the field of education and so is planning with a vision for the future.
The institute in Karnal is based on the motto vidya dadati vinayam, excerpted from the sloka which says knowledge brings humility from which accrues capability. Capability gives earning power and wealth and dharma or righteousness together lead to eternal happiness. The institute in Karnal was given the name of Kumari Vidya Vati Anand in honour of her generous donation to the college through the DAV Management. The grants-in-aid college is affiliated to Kuruskeshetra University, Kurukshetra.
Spread over an area of 3.5 acres, the college is located in the heart of Karnal, catering, both of to the students from the urban and the adjoining rural areas. A noteworthy feature of the college is the hostel facility that it has been providing to its students since its very inception. A cheerful hostel with functional rooms, an adequately equipped dining room and clean and well-planned toilet blocks, is located within the college premises.
The college, which has a strength of about 1600 students, offers three undergraduate programmes.
The academic performance records a pass percentage of 85 to 100 including some rank holders at the University level. A well stocked library, a multi-purpose auditorium, conference rooms, canteen, a bookshop, an extension counter of a bank and an organized parking area are part of the infrastructure of the college. In addition they maintain a botanical garden where they grow the plants required for the botanical study of their students. Sharing a sports ground with another adjacent college (under the same management), some requirements of the students are met here while the more serious and talented students are trained in the local stadium. The college provides many extra curricular activities like two wings of NCC, the air wing and army wing, 2 units of NSS, Arya Yuvati Parishad, Eco club, Debate and Dramatics, Youth Welfare Society and Cultural Association.
Project work in semi-governmental and non-governmental organizations like IARI, CSSRI and NBAGR offers opportunities to students for summer training. Its extension activities like medical camps, adult education, blood donations and other such activities further enhance the overall development of students. A sapling alumni and Career Guidance cell & PTA are also in place.
The college decided to go in for assessment and submitted a self study report in November 2002 to the National Accreditation and Assessment council (NAAC).

The college emphasises value based education by holding regular Havans in the college and through holding of lectures on Vedic philosophy. The peers' feed back is collected whenever they visit the college for extension lectures etc. The Principal and staff members have regular interaction with parents of the students (past as well as present) to know their views about the level of education and facilities available to the students and remedial measures are taken when required. Any new course can be started in a span of 7-8 months but the college has not started any new course in the recent past. The college has liaison with a number of industrial organizations of the area where students are sent to obtain practical training as part of their curriculam.
The college, being an affiliated institution, has to teach the syllabii prescribed by Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra . The teachers becoming members of Board of Studies suggest improvements/changes in the syllabii of various courses. The college arranged English speaking and Saral Sanskrit Sambhashan certificate courses in the recent past.
Criterion II : Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
Admission to various courses is on the basis of academic records. The reservation policy of the state government regulating admissions is also followed. There is no mechanism to assess student's knowledge and skills while admitting them to the various courses. However, the college conducts regular monthly and half-yearly tests for evaluating the performance of the students. The college follows a practice of arranging remedial courses for weak students so that they are able to improve their performance. The advanced learners are encouraged to participate in various educational programmes like Seminars, Debates, Quiz programmes etc.
The syllabii are divided into units and teachers inform the students about the coverage of syllabii at various points of the session. There is an annual system of examination but the performance of the students is regularly monitored, first in the departmental meetings of various departments and then in the meetings of heads of departments called by the Principal from time to time. This monitoring is very useful for improving the performance of students. The traditional method of teaching is supplemented by question-answer sessions, class-room seminars, educational tours etc. The college has recently acquired a multi-media facility and this will also help in improving the learning process.
There are 190 teaching days and the college works for 237 days in a year. The ratio of full time teachers to part time teachers is 2:1 and 67 % classes are taught by full time teachers.

The teachers for uncovered posts are recruited by a committee appointed by the D.A.V. Management. Two teachers for aided posts and 14 for unaided posts were recruited in the last two years. The funds for the unaided posts are provided out of college resources. In the last two years 10 teachers attended national seminars whereas 2 teachers participated as resource persons.

Criterion V : Students Support and Progression
Though college is not maintaining records of students' progression but many of them either go in for higher studies or try to gain employment. This being a girls' college, girls prefer B.Ed./P.G. education after graduation. Many of the commerce/science graduates compete for competitive examinations like CAT, XLRI, MAT, Air Hostess etc. Out of 11 P.G. students (P.G. course now being discontinued) 3 are pursuing M.Phil and 1 student has cleared NET.

Criterion VII : Health Practices
Being an established college in a small town, majority of the students and teachers hail from the same locality. This gives them one to one rapport and also forms an informal system of getting feedback on quality and mechanisms adopted.
One of the major strength of the college appears to be the feeling of safety and security which it imparts to its girl students, who are often first generation women learners. Two major steps seem to contribute to this feeling. One is regulating the time of leaving college and the second is the providing of escorts to the girls whenever they go anywhere outside the college. This feature also plays a major role in helping the college pursue its goal of providing education to women.
The college balances the providing of modern facilities and education with teaching in ancient texts, heritage and culture through its well defined pattern of Havans and philosophical lectures.
The college has also harnessed the support of local and national level organizations located in Karnal for providing vocational experience to its students and greater exposure .
The college Principal and Management continuously expose the faculty members to workshops, seminars and inter university programmes as a measure to update them, and thus encourage them.
The college maintains perfect coordination between teaching, technical and non-teaching staff. Efforts are made to maintain discipline, cleanliness, courtesy, cooperation and regularity in attendance.
