S.D.College, Panipat, 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. P. Geervani, Former Vice-chancellor of Sri Padmavati Mahila Viswavidyalayam, Tirupathi as Chairperson and Prof. Aroon Krishnarao Heblekar, Principal, PES College of Arts and Science, Goa and Dr. Suhas Pednekar, Vice-Principal, Ramnaraian Ruia College, Mumbai, as Members with Dr. M.S. Shyamasundar, Deputy Adviser, NAAC as the Coordinating Officer visited the institution for two days on January 31 & February 01, 2003.
It is a college under Grant-in-aid, affiliated to Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, covering an area of six acres in urban location and was established in 1969 to meet the growing academic needs of the people of the town that had only one college at that time. The college is run by Shri S.D.Education Society. Panipat, Haryana. Besides the college, the management runs four other educational institutions.
The college offers eight Programmes of which five are UG, two are PG and one is a PG Diploma. There are in all eighteen departments consisting of seven from faculty of Science (i.e. Chemistry, Physics & Electronics, Computer science, Zoology, Botany and Mathematics), nine from faculty of Arts (i.e. Economics, History, Political Science, English, Music, Hindi, Commercial Arts, Sanskrit and Home Sciences ), and two from faculty of Commerce (i.e. Commerce and Management).
The college has a teaching faculty of 76 of which 44 are permanent and 32 are ad hoc teachers. Out of them 13 teachers are Ph.D. holders, 13 are M.Phil. holders and others are P.G. degree holders. The college has a central library, computer centre, health centre, sport facilities, three auditoriums, a botanical garden, hostel for girls, canteen, placement cell, women cell and vehicle parking shed as support services.
The total number of students enrolled in the last academic year in UG Programme was 2684, in PG Programme was 122 and in PG Diploma Programme was 12. The temporal plan of academic work of the college is the Annual system excepting in Computer Science-Software and self-financing courses that follow seminar system. The drop -out rate of students in UG was about 15 % at the first year level and in PG it was 8-9 % .
The success rate in UG was 70-71 % and in PG it was 61-74 % in the last two years. Some of the UG as well as PG students have secured University ranks.
The Peer Team examined in detail the performance of the institution, its infrastructure, curricular & co-curricular programmes and other relevant aspects of its functioning. The Peer Team also held discussion with Members of the Faculty, Administrative & Technical staff, Students, Alumni, Parents, the Principal and Members of the Management and gained deeper perspective of the functioning of the college.
The assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are given in the following pages.
Section 2: Criterion -Wise Analysis:
Criterion 1: Curricular Aspects
There are eight Programme options available to the students from Humanities, Science and Commerce as well as various subject options (18 in number) to choose from. The career oriented subjects introduced by the college include BCA, BBA, M. Sc.(Computer Science-Software), B.Com. with computer applications, Tax procedure and Practices, Principles and Practices of Insurance. Some courses such as Music, Commercial Arts and Home Science are offered exclusively to girls, and are localized in separate building in the campus closer to the girls' hostel. The Peer Team feels that some of these courses such as Commercial Arts and Music can also be kept open for boys.
The missions, goals and objectives of the institution should have been well defined.
The college takes 3 to 4 months to introduce a new programme within the existing University system as there is provision under the University regulations to introduce a course or programme with the permission of the Vice Chancellor. This is a very encouraging provision and the institution should make use of this opportunity to introduce more new courses. In view of the above mentioned provision, the interdisciplinary/ multidisciplinary approach in curriculum design can be considered in future. The girl students of the college expressed their desire to pursue PG programmes and wanted more PG programmes to be started.
Students do not have flexibility and horizontal mobility to pursue a programme due to limitations of time frame. However, they have elective options. The curriculum approved by the University is followed by the departments. A few staff have served as Members of Board of Studies of the University. The college can consider establishing a college-industry-neighbourhood networking. This can prove to be useful for the college.
Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
Students are selected for admission to S.D.College through their academic records. There is provision for assessing students' knowledge and skills by conducting monthly class tests and terminal examinations. Remedial courses are offered during vacations and prior to final examinations. The college can consider developing a structured Programme of remedial courses spread out all through the academic year availing the financial assistance from UGC. The total number of working days are 202 of which the number of teaching days are 176. Both full time and temporary teachers are involved in teaching and evaluation. Mostly lecture method of teaching is followed. Practical classes are conducted in the laboratories The performance of the students is monitored through monthly tests. Only the batches admitted in this academic year have ten percent weightage for internal assessment. More innovative and evaluation methods can be introduced.
Apart from regular lectures the college organises guest lectures, group discussions and debates for the benefit of students.
The college follows teacher performance appraisal method through ACR proforma filled at the end of the session. The teaching facilities and resources such as audio-visuals need to be strengthened. Similar to the educationally disadvantage students, academically advanced learners can be provided some help for them to work ahead of the rest.
The work-load of teachers is 24 periods (45 minutes duration) per week. The teachers should be encouraged to participate in seminars/conferences/workshops/symposia,etc., and the college may take some initiative to organise such Programmes or similar faculty development Programmes. The college may follow self-appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the faculty. The establishment of some national and international linkages for teaching and /or research would help the institution considerably.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The college promotes research through PG students who undertake project work. The teachers are provided with seed money and are also given study leave. A good number of research papers has been published by the science faculty in national and international journals. The science faculty has published the books for plus two and UG level which are popular and of immense value to the society. The staff of Hindi department has also a good number of publications of high literary value to their credit.
Competent teachers should be encouraged to take up research activities and publish the work in academic forum. Teachers can send proposals to UGC for research grants.
As 26 staff of the college have research degrees, initiative is required to promote research that can strengthen teaching and provide opportunity for consultancy. Research can also be undertaken in collaboration with the local industries, Panipat being a industrial town. Commerce and Management departments could offer consultancy services to generate resources
In view of the high caliber of the staff and research potential, more post-graduate degrees, diplomas and certificate courses can be initiated to promote professionalism amongst the students.
The college has a person designated for extension activities which is an additional charge. The various extension activities of the college include community development, social work, health and hygiene awareness, medical camp, adult education and literacy, blood donation camp, AIDS awareness and environment awareness. The college has two separate NSS units for boys and girls, which carry out some of the extension activities.
There is a scope for utilization of students' potential for extension activities and outreach programmes for the benefit of neighbouring society. They may do so along with NGO's and GO's.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has a plan to meet the need for augmenting the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth. The college maintains its infrastructure through the respective department heads. There is a College Advisory Council to ensure optimum utilization of infrastructure facilities.
There is an Advisory Committee for the library. The activities of central library such as lending of books, purchase of books, book bank and stock verification are computerized. There are total 29814 books in the library and the working hours of library are 8 hours per day. Book bank facility is available for students in the central library.
There is a central computer facility in the college with 30 computers, and three departments have their computers. These computers and their accessories are maintained by private agencies.
The physical and infrastructure facilities available in the sports and physical education include basketball court, volleyball, table tennis, etc. During the last academic year, a good number of students participated in state, regional and national meets in basket ball, kabaddi(women), athletics, weight lifting, power lifting, best physique, cricket and badminton. The award of scholarships and total fee concession to outstanding sports persons is very encouraging step.
The college has a girls hostel which has facilities for seventy two students. The cooking, serving and maintenance of the hostel has been entrusted with the contractor. Sufficient work force is appointed to keep the campus beautiful and pollution free.
The college has good administrative and computer sciences blocks. The science departments are accommodated in fairly good building. The Team observed the arts and language departments to be having inadequate accommodation.
The college should encourage the use of academic and infra-structural facilities by external agencies to generate funds. Internet facilities should be made available to meet the growing needs of the students and teachers. Teachers should be encouraged to use computer- aided methods such as audio-visuals in their teaching to make their subjects more interesting. In the total number of books added to library during the last two years, text books are more in number than other books.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The college publishes its updated prospectus annually. The percentage of students appearing for the qualifying exam after the minimum period of study is 95 %.
The recreational / leisure time facilities available to the students include indoor games, outdoor games, debate clubs, student magazines, cultural Programmes, dance & music competitions and essay writing. Basketball, Badminton and Kabbadi grounds are available on the campus. The college shares playground facilities for other games with Shivaji stadium located in Panipat.
Students of the college have been representing Republic Day Parade almost every year. Even in sports, the college team won the state level competition and participated in national level.
A good number of students received financial aid in the form of state and national merit scholarships in the last two academic years. The management offers scholarships to deserving students from its own resources The college has an employment cell to offer career counselling to students, and a Placement Officer to conduct interviews of students for private sector employment. There is a need of introducing personal counselling for the benefit of students, specially the girl students.
Qualified doctor visits the college campus as a part of health service to students, teaching and non-teaching staff
The college should consider seriously to mobilize the potential of the alumni association. With the growing needs of the students audio-visual aids and nature club facilities can be made available to students.
Criterion VI: Organisation and Management
The S.D.College is governed by Shri S.D. Education Society. The Management Committee has several educationist, administrative and business men committed to the growth and development of the college. It has well laid out policies and procedures for the management of the college. The Management meets in every quarters. A good coordination is seen between the Management , Principal and staff. Procedures related to admission of students, selection and promotion of staff and conducting examination are as per the guidelines laid down by the University and the Government.
The college has an internal coordinating and monitoring mechanism. The Principal supervises and monitors the overall management of the college with the help of all heads of departments and Superintendent of the college. The financial matters are processed and coordinated by the Principal, Bursar and the accounts clerks. The college maintains its discipline through the Discipline Committee comprising senior and junior teachers.
The college has an in-built mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff with the help of heads of departments. There is a special committee for preparing the academic calendar. There is an internal audit mechanism in the college.
There is a need for the college to conduct some professional development programmes for non-teaching staff. Also, any effort towards the implementation of welfare programmes for the benefit of all sections of the college would be a welcome step. The college should consider seriously the forming of grievance redressal cells for students, non-teaching and teaching staff. The number of non-teaching staff which is 20, appears to be less.
Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The College has healthy practices as listed below :
