NAAC report of Anjuman Arts, Science, Commerce and Business Administrator CollegeSECTION 1: INTRODUCTION
The Anjuman Arts, Science & Commerce College, Bijapur volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment & Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted the Self Study Report to NAAC in December 2003. A Peer Team was constituted by the Council to visit the Institution and validate the Self Study report. The Peer team consisting of Dr. S.P.Rajagopalan as Chairperson and Prof. M.Balakrishnan and Prof. K.A.Hashim as members visited the institution for two days from 6th to 7th Aug. 2004.
The Anjuman Arts, Science & Commerce College is affiliated to Karnataka University Dharwad. This is a religious minority institution aided by the Govt. of Karnataka. The College has 23 departments with three major programmes in Arts, Science & Commerce. The College was established in the year 1972 by Anjuman-e-Islam and obtained UGC recognisation under 2f & 12B in the year 1975; the college is located in a spacious 7 acres campus in Bijapur town municipal limits. There are 74 teachers on the roll of whom 11 are Ph.D. holders and 21 members are on the non teaching side. There are 1600 (of whom 500 are girls) students pursuing various UG Programmes. The dropout rate is only 3% with a high success rate of 85%. The unit cost of education including salary component works out to Rs. 18,205 and excluding salary component Rs. 778.
The Peer team carefully perused and analysed the Self Study report submitted by the Institution. During Institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents and other facilities. The academic, co curricular, extracurricular, sports and extension facilities of the Institution were visited.
The Peer team also interacted at length with the Governing Body, Head of the Institution, faculty, non-teaching staff, Students, parents and Alumni of the Institution. Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the seven criteria identified by NAAC, 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-I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
In tune with the declared objectives, the institution presently has 23 departments and offers programmes, in Arts, Science & Commerce, all at undergraduate level. The Programmes are conventional and approved by the Karnataka University ; Dharwad. However, the variable components of the programmes have been so chosen to reflect and subserve the objectives set out in the mission of the institution. Bijapur is a most backward region of Karnataka and this College is a boon to the people of this region. Over the years it has grown from strength to strength with 1600 students & 74 Staff members on the roll. The college has judiciously chosen the major combinations to derive optimum advantage through inter-disciplinary programmes. Though all the 23 departments offer programmes at under graduate level, majority of the Staff members across the departments evince keen interest in up-dating their knowledge and raising the level of instruction to the students.
Several Staff members of this college are on the University academic bodies like Boards of Studies, Examination Wing, etc. The admission, fee structure, Curriculum design & examination patterns are as per the norms of the Karnataka University Dharwad. To take higher education to the poorest of the poor and the needy, the College has indeed put in place quite a few facilities like bridge courses for the new entrants, remedial Programmes for the academically challenged and separate stream of enrichment programmes for the bright and advanced learners. It is noteworthy that these remedial and enrichment programes are being conducted uniformly by all the departments by conducting special classes on holidays as is evidenced by the documents maintained by them. The syllabi is so thoroughly covered in the classes by a judicious combination of regular classes, participative, interactive sessions immediately after lecture, periodical, seminal, wherein the students' are motivated to present papers and also either to defend or to contest the seminar points. The students interest in the curriculum is further sustained and taken to pursue excellence with scrutiny tools like tests, question and answer sessions, projects and debates. These supplementary methods are indeed operational which is reflected in the very high percentage of success rate in almost all the departments. As an Affiliated college with little freedom to design a programme, it has chosen the best combination within the limited option, so as to dovetail the same to the needs and requirements of this region. As a case in point can be cited the collaborative endeavour of the History and Sociology departments' programmes of survey and projects on and about the monuments and historical sites that dot this region. To the credit of the Commerce, English and Computer faculties, it must be mentioned that very relevant and 'Inthing' certificate courses in spoken English, tax-compliance and computer literacy are offered which reflects the anxiety of the College to offer programmes with diversity, flexibility and marketability to learners. Several departments, through their membership in the Boards of study, have initiated steps to redesign the courses to make them adequately reflect the regional needs and national aspirations. The administration periodically reviews the relevance of the programmes in the certificate courses started recently under self-financing scheme. The feedback from the teaching faculties is used to lobby with the university for appropriate review and redesign of the programmes. This is perhaps one of the colleges where the Arts and History students are offered as many as six optional subjects besides three majors of equal importance for study. The instruction methodology and the tools employed correlate well with the knowledge-skill proportion of 80:20 as envisaged by the Common Universities Act. The College also offers five short term certificate courses in computer literacy, spoken English, tax complains & Food processing and preservation and Journalism.
The University has approved the syllabus designed by the Arabic department making a radical change in the Arabic curriculum.
CRITERIA-II: TEACHING LEARNING EVALUATION
As an innovative exercise the college does 'induction analysis' of the new entrants so as to elicit their strengths interests and weaknesses which help the staff to suitably design remedial programmes in general and in English, Accounts and Mathematics in particular. The teachers prepare teaching plan ahead of launching their academic work. The teacher's endeavour to transmit the best to the students is fortified by liberal use of slides, charts, models, maps, etc. The student-teacher ratio is maintained at 25:1 in the science faculties where-as it is unwieldly in arts particularly Criminology, Psychology and Education departments. A noteworthy feature of this college is that about 95% of subjects are taught by full time regular faculties which ensures commitment consistency and timely completion of the syllabi. Quite a few teachers have participated in National level workshop and seminar. The teachers do not confine their commitment to the students in classrooms but go beyond it and render effective services both to the students and the community at large. A close look of the minor research programmes undertaken by certain staff members reflect their concern for the community. The Team is convinced that the teachers, by and large, have availed the opportunities to refresh and refurbish their equipment by participating in workshops, seminar, symposia etc., wherever and whenever such opportunities were available to them. The team is appreciative of the teachers' commitment to equip their students by all available means like seminars, monthly tests, midterm tests and preparatory exams. They also arrange special lectures by the experts in the field. The departments of Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, Commerce and Economics have entered into MOU with industries, Govt. and NGO in and around Bijapur.
CRITERION III: RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION
Though this under graduate college is yet to be recognized as a center for Ph.D., mention must be made that majority of the teachers are engaging themselves in one minor project or the other, relevant for the region by utilizing the services of 11 Ph.Ds, 8 M.Phil.s and 5 teachers who have registered for research. However only two qualified staff members are recognized as guides for research. The teachers and students involve themselves in community development programmes like campaign for health, hygiene and environment awarness, medical campus, adult literacy programme, blood donation camp and Aids awareness programme. The certificate programme in tax consultancy has enabled the staff to offer consultancy services to the needy.
Both NSS and NCC have acquitted themselves admirably with their involvement , commitment and an urge for distinction. Though the college has one NSS unit (of 100 volunteers of whom 30 are girls). The volunteers have left an impressive mark of their work and service. The village chosen for the special camp and the services to the local people there during the year 2002-2003 bear testimony to this. They render services in literacy, polio programmes etc. The formation of the science club, Economics club and Ladies Forum, serve as inspiration for other departments to follow suit. The Commerce department deserves a special mention for the market survey their students have conducted on electronic washing machines. In several departments evidences were shown for the academic excellence with a few students annexing university ranks and gold medals. A number of the Alumni of this college are holding eminent positions in diverse fields and form an influential segment of the society in Bijapur. The Peer Team fervently hopes that the Alumni and parents would come to the rescue of the institution by offering whatever assistance the college needs so as to ease out the inconveniences in the existing infrastructure and reaching out to poor and needy students of this region. The teachers have impressed the Peer Team of their dedication to their wok and impartiality in their attitudes and activities vis-a-vis the students regardless of their religion , caste, community, language and even region. The Peer Teams' interaction with the parents and the teachers on one hand and with a cross section of the students on the other revealed how united, cooperative and collaborative are the Principal, staff and students of this college in their joint venture of providing higher education to the under privileged sections of the society. The staff of the departments of Arabic, Commerce, Hindi, Chemistry and Economics deserve a special mention for their impressive and enterprising activities like research and minor projects aimed at excellence which are well received by the students. Two staff of Arabic Department are paper setters for the University Exams. The Economics and Commerce departments have made their extension programmes society oriented, while the Chemistry & Economics departments have contributed research articles in National and International Journals. The Hindi & Urdu departments have made extensive literary contributions and the lecturer in Criminology has attempted to sensitize the society through special studies besides serving as an examiner for competitive exams and Post Graduate examination.
There is an advisory body for research and consultancy which motivates the teachers to undertake the research works.
CRITERION-IV: INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES
The campus is located in 7 acres of land with space for future expansion of academic programmes. The built-up area is over 32,350 sq.ft. presently accommodating the class rooms, laboratories, Office & Principal chamber. There are two general staff rooms - one for women and the other for men members. Buildings, classrooms and labs are well maintained.
The library functions from 8 A.M. to 10.00 P.M. on all working days and allows the students closed access system. At present the reading room and the library are in one and the same hall. However, the college has availed grants under the X plan, and the construction of separate, spacious library block is in progress. The library has a collection of 21,083 volumes. It subscribes to 41 journals/periodicals. The college has advisory committee for the library and a book bank for the students. The library has been provided with a computer system and computerization of the library reference services is in progress which may be expedited. There are two Computer labs in the College having 27 terminals and Internet facility is also made available in the college.
The College has a recreation center and other sports facilities. Many students of the college have been selected during the last academic year as university blues. Also some of the students have participated the Karnataka Universities Hockey and Cricket teams at Inter University Tournaments.
The College at present has neither canteen nor hostel facilities.
CRITERION-V: STUDENT SUPPORT AND PROGRESSION
The College is located in one of the most economically and socially backward areas of the Karnataka state and thus caters to the needs of the students of this region in general and of the minority communities in particular.
State Government scholarships for SC, ST & BC students are made available to this college. Baitul Maal, a charitable organization housed in the College is providing financial assistance to a number of poor students to pursue their education. Also every year, the best NCC Cadet is getting the Sahara scholarship of Rs.15,000/-.

CRITERIA-VI: ORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT
Anjuman Arts, Science & Commerce College was founded by Muslim minority Community with the noble and philanthropic objective of serving the educationally challenged communities of Bijapur district. The trust was duly registered and is now being headed by Al-Haj Janab A.A.Khayum as President and Janab M.M.Peerzade as a Chairman of the governing council. Even though this is a religious minority institution, the doors are open for all eligible candidates of this region without discrimination. It is co-educational and the women students are mostly from the neighbouring rural and economically and socially backward areas and may not otherwise go further for higher education, if this college was not established. It is an aided institution and collects only the fees approved by the govt. of Karnataka. The Management has been running several educational institutions of which the Anjuman Arts, Science & Commerce College is with a separate trust charged with the management of this College. The members of the trust are elite citizens of the local Muslim community. The Manpower requirement of the college is planned annually and wherever the need arises, the Management appoints teachers to ensure justice to the students community. The recruitment of teaching & non-teaching staff is in consonance with govt. rules and minority rights. The Management has given the Principal necessary authority and does not normally interfere in the day-to-day administrative affairs of the college. The administration helps the students get scholarship from various agencies in time and redresses the grievances of the staff and students in a satisfactory manner. The Management is yet to introduce modern techniques & technology in the administration of the college. The finances of the college are very judiciously allocated and effectively utilized to make the programmes and functioning Cost effective and efficacious in terms of benefits to the students. The management is yet to address the parents and Alumni in its bid to raise financial resources to provide more infrastructure facilities to the students. The budgeting is done by the management ahead of the academic year and auditing of the accounts are done as per the stipulation laid down by the govt. for aided minority college.
The functioning of the office is satisfactory. The Principal periodically reviews and issues necessary instructions to expedite the office work. A separate committee looks after the activities of the academic year by preparing the schedule to be followed through the year.
CRITERION VII: HEALTHY PRACTICES
The College has secular outlook and ensures congenial atmosphere for teaching and learning.
Islamic Welfare Society and Al-Farooque Society are functioning in the College for the welfare of the Staff members.
The Ladies Forum of the college is functioning effectively in creating awareness, among the Muslim community with regard to women's education.
The College has put in place the Teaching diary system for better monitoring of teaching programmes.
The staff members of the Arabic department of the college render translation services to the teachers and students of neighbouring schools.
The staff encourages the students to be respectful of and familiar with other faiths.
The teachers' moral authority over the students was very evident both inside and outside the class-rooms.
The college honours academic-achievers of this region annually.
SECTION 3: OVERALL ANALYSIS
Though a religious minority institution, this college constantly and continuously endeavours to reach out to the poor and needy regardless of caste and community.
The college evinces keen interest to teach even unviable subjects like Sanskrit and Persian so as to encourage the learning of the classical languages.
The NSS unit of this College has conducted a number of community-oriented programmes.
Though the college offers only under graduate programmes, the teachers stimulate the students and guide them to take up socially relevant projects.
Despite constraints of finance, the Principal has accepted the challenge and successfully galvanized the teachers and students for the NAAC assessment and accreditation.
By way of preparing the teaches of this college to face global challenges, the Principal inspires and encourages them to take to research culture in a big way.
The literacy contributions of teachers of Urdu, Arabic, Hindi, Persian & Sanskrit are worthy of emulation.
As there is inadequacy of infrastructural facilities, the management needs to address this issue on a priority basis with specific focus on the following.
The staff rooms of the Science departments should be separated from the lab, to protect the staff members from being exposed to lab hazards.
The Class-rooms may be adequately ventilated and lighted.
Separate and spacious rooms may be allotted to NSS, NCC and Sports in view of their growing importance.
Few of the Departments presently accommodated in the basement need to come over ground with proper ventilation and the lighting.
The library building construction may be expedited so as to provide reading room facility to staff and students.
The library needs to provide open access system for all the students.
The Teaching departments may be facilitated to setup departmental libraries and make regular annual additions to the existing volumes.
The ladies' waiting room needs to be spacious commensurate with the increasing number of women students.
The Sports facilities may be expanded with sufficient indoor and outdoor games materials.
The Gymkhana Club, for which the building is ready, needs to be equipped with fixtures and made operational at the earliest.
The support services in general and the toiletaries in particular may be increased in number commensurate with the student population.
The Management needs to provide canteen facility inside the campus.
For a growing college with a student population of 1600 with scope for further increase in number, there is a felt need for hostels separately for boys and girls.
The management may do well to consider and positively endorse any proposal from the principal for the constitution of Parents-Teachers Association, Alumni Association and provision of management-paid teachers to the one-man departments.
The Peer team gratefully acknowledges the opportunity given by NAAC to visit this college with regard to assessment and accreditation. The Principal and the staff of this college deserve our thanks for their cooperation extended and hospitality shown to the team during the visit. The team is highly appreciative of the liasion work of the local coordinator and places its acknowledgement and thanks to him on record.
