NAAC report of S Nijalingappa CollegeSection 1: Introduction
The KLE Society Nijalingappa College was established by the Karnataka Lingayat Education Society (KLE Society) in 1963 in Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka state. The KLE Society is one of the major voluntary registered societies in Karnataka with head quarters at Belgaum, having a network of more than 150 education institutions spread out in Karnataka, Maharashtra and Delhi. The Society was founded in a humble way in Belgaum in 1916, aiming to establish institutions to impart liberal education to the poor and middle class students of the society. The organization has now grown into gigantic size running diverse educational institutions and courses such as Kindergarten, Arts, Science, Commerce, Medical, Paramedical, Technology, Law and Agriculture colleges and institutions. The society has an artistically conceived and symbolically suggestive emblem, which represents truth, love, service and selfless sacrifice. The society is built on the firm foundation and vision that education is the only tool of intellectual and spiritual regeneration of mankind.
The college is affiliated to Bangalore University and included under the grant-in-aid scheme of the State Government. University Grants Commission (UGC) has recognized and included the college under 2f and 12B list in 1968 and is entitled to receive the developmental assistance.
The college was started to commemorate the great patriot Shri. S. Nijalingappa and is located in a prime site in the heart of Bangalore cosmopolitan city, on a 4.95 acre beautiful sprawling campus. Over the last four decades the college has expanded and diversified its courses and acquired all infrastructural facilities for a conducive learning ambience.
At present the institution offers several certificate courses besides undergraduate degree courses in Arts, Science, Commerce and Management streams and professional postgraduate courses in MCA and MTA. Many of the professional courses were started in self-financing stream in response to high demand. Altogether the college offers 4 degree courses in regular streams and 8 in self-financing mode and 2 postgraduate programmes.
The college has a strength of 1748 students on its roll (2004) in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes together, of which 610 are girls. The college has 108 faculty members, both permanent and temporary together in regular and self-financing streams with a balanced gender representation. Fourteen of the teachers hold Ph.D. and thirteen teachers have obtained M. Phil. There are 80 non-teaching staff, ably assisting the administration. The teachers and students are very active in diverse extension and sport activities. The college has earned good reputation in the city through its dedicated service with social commitment to the stakeholders by providing useful education.
The college submitted its Self-Study Report (SSR) in December 2003 and volunteered to be assessed and accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore. NAAC constituted a Peer Team comprising of Prof. S.F. Patil, Vice-Chancellor, Bharathi Vidya Peeth Deemed University, Pune, as Chairman, with Prof. K.G. Narayan Pillai, former Director, CDC, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, as Member-co-ordinator and Prof. S.V. Chindhade, Principal, MU College Pimpri-Pune as Member. Dr. M.S. Shyamsundar represented as co-ordinating officer on behalf of NAAC. The college submitted its supplementary Self-Study Report dated 16th August 2004 with updates.
The team visited the college on 28th and 29th August 2004 and interacted with the Principal, Board of Management, College Council, faculty members, non-teaching staff, parents, alumni and students representatives on the working of the institution. The Team also visited the support services such as classrooms, laboratories, office, library, sports facilities, computer center, health center, hostel, NSS, NCC, playground, Auditoria, instrumentation center, canteen, co-operative society, Placement and Grievance Redressal Cells, and other infrastructural facilities. The Team critically analyzed the documents presented to them besides the SSR and validated the performance and achievements of the different components to make the overall assessment of the college in the light of the seven criteria identified by NAAC, and the report is presented in the following pages:
Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion -I: Curricular Aspects
The goals and objectives of the college are to achieve academic excellence, to uphold moral and spiritual values, to make students aware of social justice and to make them self-reliant and service minded. The institution intends to achieve these goals through its 12 undergraduate and 2 postgraduate, 11 certificate courses and a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular programmes. All the degree courses have English and one of the three languages (Kannada, Sanskrit, Hindi) compulsory. Considering the challenges of globalization and new trends in higher education 10 market friendly undergraduate and postgraduate courses such as Biotechnology, BBM, BCA, FAD, MCA, MTA and alike were started recently. The goals and objectives are reviewed periodically and communicated to all its constituents through an annually updated prospectus.
The college is affiliated to Bangalore University and follows the syllabi prescribed by the university with a little flexibility to modify or enrich the courses. The courses offered are compatible with goals and objectives of the college and are being taught with good amount of application, diligence and professional inputs. Five teachers are members of the Boards of Studies and a few of them are actively involved in the revision of the syllabi at the University level. The college uses its wisdom to introduce modern concepts and subjects with conventional programmes making the combination more attractive and acceptable. For example, Electronics/Computer Science have been combined with Physics and Mathematics; Biotechnology with Botany and Chemistry. It is commendable to note that the college has initiated projects at UG level on their own. Introduction of Fashion and Apparel Design at UG and Tourism Administration and MCA at PG level deserves commendation. These vocational subjects enhance the job potential and self-employment competencies of the students. Moreover, the college proposes to introduce new combinations in Journalism, Psychology, Microbiology, Genetics etc. at UG and Commerce, Bio-technology and MBA at PG level. Topics highlighting moral and human values have been introduced and taught with the languages. The college has been successful in introducing 8 short-term certificate courses like Public Speaking, Drosophila breeding, Vermiculture, low cost equipment, Visual Basic etc as add-on/enrichment courses with a view to enhancing the skills, knowledge and job potential of the regular degree students without charging fee. The college has developed a mechanism to collect structured feedback from students on teaching- learning experience and performance of teachers and uses it to assess the utility and acceptability of the programmes. The authorities have taken the results of feedback analysis in all seriousness and these are used to rectify the deficiencies and for further improvement. Recommendations of the local inspection committee of the University are also scrupulously followed. Teachers also take the feedback record with positive approach and use it for improvement. The Team suggests that steps may be taken to collect feedback from employers and academic peers with a view to redesigning the programmes.
Criterion -II: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Government and University norms are followed for admission. Transparency is maintained throughout. Overall responsibility of the admission is vested with an admission committee. Academic merit is the main criteria of admission which is supplemented with interview and couselling. Counselling is given for the selection of programmes also. There is no provision for entrance test. However, a post admission test is conducted with a view to identifying the advanced and slow learners and remedial programmes accordingly. Home assignments, tutorial classes, doubt clearing, etc. are given for slow learners. Advanced learners are given lecture contest, essay writing, quiz, debates, seminar presentations, project leadership, curriculum related projects, additional library facilities etc. The teachers are encouraged to prepare monthly teaching plan, and daily work diary, which is monitored by the HODs and the Principal. This is a welcome practice. The syllabi are unitized. Learner-centered teaching methods such as seminar, group discussions, tutorial, quiz, projects, tours and visits, on-the-job training, compulsory library work etc. are regularly practiced. The institution provides a centralized media facility for the preparation of software for teaching. The teachers use this facility for the preparation of software to supplement classroom teaching. Some of the innovative demonstrations in the field of science are presented through TV and AIR for popularizing science. The teachers are assisted by skilled technicians in the preparation of computer aided teaching materials. Teachers are recruited as per the norms of the UGC, State Government and University on the basis of merit. As there is a ban on appointments by Government since 1986 adhoc teachers are appointed by the management as and when needed. It is recommended that Government may take a positive view in lifting the basis on the recruitment of teachers in order to enhance the quality of education at par with national level. The college works on 289 days, and teaching days were 210 in the last year. Science teachers take 20 hours and others 16 hours classroom teaching per week. It is heartening to note that a teacher from the Chemistry Department has won 1st prize, 'Sigma Xi Award' instituted by the Scientific Research Society McGill, Montreal. It is worth noting that a faculty member from the Department of Chemistry has been a resource person at National level workshop. A project undertaken by B.Sc. Computer Science students, titled 'SWOT Analysis' for KSRTC, free of cost indicates service orientedness.
There is a well-thought out scheme of monitoring the progress of students. Tutorial system and class teacher schemes are the two methods practiced to monitor the academic growth and personal issues of students. The results of tests, examinations and attendance are informed to parents by mail and interface as and when needed. This information is published through the college website also.
Further, Quality Assurance Cell (QAC) of the college conducted HRD-TQM programmes for teaching faculty during 2004-2005, for a total of 50 beneficiaries.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
There are fourteen Ph.D. and thirteen M. Phil. degree holders among the teachers. In addition, 3 teachers have registered for Ph.D. and another 3 for M. Phil. Even though the major thrust is given for teaching-learning, the college authorities are interested to make research a significant activity by giving seed money, project funding, adjustment in timetable, giving leave benefits etc. Research activities are pursued through short research projects undertaken by the faculty and students. Seed money for the projects is given by the Management to the tune of Rs.3 lakhs in 2004, and 6 lakhs in the present academic year. The Team puts on record its appreciation for this encouragement. Two major project proposals have been recently submitted to UGC, one each from the departments of Zoology and Chemistry. There are about 60 publications from the faculty, of which 10 are during the last five years. 14 books have been published by a teacher in Kannada and 14 by another in Political Science. Popular articles are published in local publications by a few teachers. One faculty member each from Physics and Chemistry Departments is regularly broadcasting popular science presentations through All India Radio and Doordarshan. It is heartening to note that one alumni vouched that he got valuable assistance in presenting popular science programmes through Doordarshan and AIR. No Department has been recognized as research department by University. The college has already applied for recognition and awaiting results from University. The Team feels that the teachers should take initiative in submitting minor and major research projects and seminar proposals to various funding agencies including UGC.
The college organizes multidimensional extension activities through NSS and NCC. Additional charge is given to a teacher organizing NSS activities. The college has collaboration with NGOs such as Red Cross, Lion and Rotary Clubs, BKF, Round Table, INSA etc. and GOs such as AIDS Authority, Government Hospitals, Police Department, Doordarshan in arranging society linked programmes such as AIDS awareness, health and hygiene, environment awareness, blood donation, tree planting, literacy programmes, traffic control etc. The college has one unit of NSS with 105 volunteers. The Team noted that some departments are involved in organizing extension activities of their own. Other departments may also emulate the same. This will strengthen the institution-society linkage.
There is one unit of NCC with one trained officer and 120 cadets. They are actively involved in extension activities also. 22 cadets passed 'B' certificate and 4 of them have passed 'C' certificate examination. One cadet participated in the Republic day parade this year.
Formal consultancy has yet to take its roots in the college. However, informal consultancy work is carried out by some staff members individually. The Chemistry department gives consultancy service to local cottage industries for the production of detergents and cosmetics. The college may think to constitute an interdisciplinary consultancy group with the aim of floating formal consultancy. Rules for consultancy may also be formulated apportioning the fee levied judiciously.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has impressive buildings standing in a beautiful campus of 4.95 acres of land in the heart of the city. The buildings have 13, 021 m2 of total carpet area over 4 floors of 5 blocks and provides sufficient accommodation for 65 classrooms, library, 30 laboratories, conference hall, staff rooms, office, Principal's chamber and space for other supporting services. There is provision for extension which is envisaged in the master plan submitted. Construction of a 7-floor sports and library complex has already started with a budget estimate of 6 crores. The Management is generous in providing all infrastructural facilities as per the requirements of the college. The facilities have been progressively acquired during the 4 decades of its existence. The classrooms, laboratories, seminar hall etc. are adequately furnished and provided with projection equipment. The seminar halls are neatly maintained with good seating arrangements and with public address system. Feedback from ongoing and outgoing students on infrastructure and learning resources in structured format is collected and is used for further improvement.

Annual athletic and sports meets are held on a public ground in the town on hired basis.
All infrastructural facilities are well maintained and optimally utilized by rendering services to University, State Government, private and public institutions, NGOs, for conducting examinations, tournaments, variety entertainment programmes etc.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
Student support and progression has been viewed as an important tool for the holistic development of the students. A variety of programmes and facilities for the extracurricular activities besides remedial coaching for slow learners have been provided. Alumni of the college hold prominent positions in different walks of life inside and outside the country. The Alumni association has been revived recently and its services may be strengthened and channelised. It is heartening to note that alumni and parents gave well thought out suggestions for the improvement of the institution in their meeting with the Team. Regular meetings of alumni association may be arranged. Programmes for personality development, skill development, on-the-job training and value education are given thrust. Feedback from students on teaching, infrastructure, tutorials, extra and co-curricular activities, college experience, etc. is collected, analyzed and used for correction and improvement. Trained teacher counsellers and class teachers look after the academic and personal problems of students. A good number of certificate courses as add-on basis, facility have been made available.

The overall decisions, co-ordination, monitoring and policies of the institution are taken by the management committee of the Society. There is a Local Governing Body with management representatives controlling all the activities of the college. There are 16 sub committees with teachers, experts, students representatives, parents and alumni who execute various activities of the college. There is a steering committee which functions as a link between the management and the college. Various components of the institution are governed on the principles of participation and transparency.
