The Anjuman Arts, Science and Commerce College voluntarily approached the NAAC for assessment and accreditation. A Self Study Report in the format prescribed by the NAAC was submitted by the college in December 2003.

A Peer Team was constituted by the NAAC to visit the institution and validate the Self Study Report. The Peer Team comprised Prof.S.Kanakaraj, Former Director, Institute of correspondence and Distance Education, Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai (Chairman), Dr.Joseph P. Varghese, Professor and Head of the Department of Botany, CMS College Kottayam, Kerala (Member Co-ordinator) and Dr.A.S.Kanade, Principal, Smt.Parvatibhai Chowgule College of Science & Arts, Madgaon, Goa (Member). The Team visited college from 6-8 September 2004. A schedule of visits to departments and faculties was drawn by the co-ordinators of the college.

The Peer Team made an on-site assessment by visiting the existing infrastructural facilities within the campus. The curricular and co-curricular programmes of the college were observed. The team interacted with the teaching staff, non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumni of the college. Besides, the team also examined relevant records maintained by the college for authentication. All the departments, Central Library, Playgrounds, NSS and Physical Education pavilions were visited by the Team. The criteria set forth by NAAC were kept in mind while assessing the level of performance of academic and administrative departments of the college. An analysis was made with the key aspects related to functions of the college.

Criterion I : Curricular Aspects
The Anjuman Arts, Science & Commerce College, Dharwad is a UG college. The college has thirteen departments under the Faculty of Arts and one department under the Faculty of Commerce. The science departments do not get students in recent years and hence are non-functional. All of the UG courses are of conventional type. However, the variety of optionals available to the students makes possible a choice of combinations. The B.Com. course offering instruction on Computer Application in Business is career oriented in a limited sense.

The college follows the syllabi prescribed by Karnatak University, Dharwad. Two of the senior faculty members are on the Boards of Studies of the University and play a role in the framing of syllabi for various courses. Areas such as curriculum design, inter-disciplinary or multidisciplinary approaches in curricular matters, formulation of modular curricula etc. need to receive attention so that the academic work in the college can be revitalized.

Apart from UGC sponsored remedial courses in certain subjects, the college seeks to promote curricular aspects through workshops, seminars, conferences and the like in the departmental level.

A few members of faculty are on the Boards of Studies of other Universities/Institutes. Their continued interest in curricular matters, publications, and interaction with various institutions of higher education serve as a positive force within the Anjuman college community.

Criterion II : Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
The teaching and evaluation process in the college is governed by the rules and regulations of Karnatak University , Dharwad. The college follows the annual system of examination of the University. All Departments conduct periodical tests and maintain mark registers. Progress in academic matters is assessed periodically by tests, and seminars. The college conducts UGC sponsored remedial courses to the SC/ST students. Advanced learners are encouraged to an extent by exposing them to academic activities in sister institutions. They also are given opportunities to be associated with certain NGOs and are also motivated to represent the college in various curricular activities.

Teaching is mostly done through lectures. The use of audio-visual aids, like OHP is in vogue to a very limited extent. The teachers follow a teaching plan prepared in the beginning of the each academic year and it is reviewed by the HOD and the Principal. The syllabi are unitized and the portions are completed in time.

The academic programmes in the college could be strengthened by organizing workshops and symposia on modern topics by the individual departments. As a result, the students would be exposed to new trends and developments in their fields, familiarize themselves with new concepts of teaching and learning, become acquainted with new learning resources and would be in a position to plan ahead courses of study beyond B.A. and B.Com.

Twenty five teachers out of 31 have attended national level seminars and two of them have functioned as resource persons. Three teachers attended an International seminar. Six teachers have benefited from the Faculty Development Program of the UGC (X Plan) in the immediate past. Eight teachers out of 28 are Ph.D. holders and two teachers hold M.Phil degree.

The teachers give a self-appraisal report in the format designed by the Government. It is evaluated by Head of Department and the Principal before it is submitted to the Directorate of Collegiate Education.
