A pioneering institute in the Marathwada region offering facilities for education to 25,000 students through its network of 14 educational institutions, the Saraswati Bhuvan Education Society (SBES) has not only a long history of service to the community since 1915, but also a recognition of its contribution by the State Government of Maharashtra as first recipient of the 'Ideal Institute' award. In 1963, the SBES founded the S.B.E.S' Arts and Commerce College in Aurangabad which is functioning now in a campus of 5.6 acres shared with the S.B.E.S' College of Science in an urban area with nearly 2,600 students taught by 87 teachers (35 full- time and 52 Clock Hour Basis ) with the support provided by 35 non-teaching staff.
S.B.E.S' Arts and Commerce College offers a total of 14 programmes including Certificate, Diploma, Undergraduate and Post-Graduate courses and Ph.D. Affiliated to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad, this college, recognized by the UGC under Section 2(f) of the UGC Act in the year 1964, receives grant-in-aid from the Government of Maharashtra. Some of the courses are run on a self-financing basis. The unit cost of education in 2001-02 was Rs. 6,062. The temporal plan of academic work is the annual system.

Narasimham, School of Management Studies, IGNOU, New Delhi as member coordinator to make an onsite visit to the College to validate the Self Study Report.

They interacted with the Principal, teachers, supporting staff, students, parents, alumni and members of the Governing Body.

The Peer Team also noted that many courses designed by the college like BBA, DCA, MCA, etc. were accepted and approved by the University and are now offered in many Colleges.

These include national integration, community development, awareness camps for health, environment etc., blood donation and medical camps. In close co-ordination with government and non-government agencies, students took up traffic regulation, rescue operations, cleaning Himalaya, eradication of superstition, communal harmony and AIDS awareness activities. The NCC unit is quite active with 53 cadets.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources:

Performance of the students in the final examinations is commendable.

Ten types of financial assistance are provided to students. More than 1500 students received some assistance or the other during 2000-01 and an equal number during 2001-02.

SECTION III: OVERALL ANALYSIS AND SUGGESTIONS
The part played by private non-profit institutions in Maharashtra in promotion of education at various levels is significant and recognition of their contribution is even more a fitting tribute to their service as has happened in the case of the 'Ideal Institute in the State'Award presented to the SBES for the first time on its being instituted. The college has been able to march towards the goals and objectives set for it by reviewing its course offerings and steadily introducing new programmes fulfilling societal needs. Human resources are put to effective use by strategies designed by the organization and this has been done by the college.
The Peer Team wishes to place the following suggestions for consideration of the concerned:
College may apply for autonomy since the University Act provides for the same.
New courses like a Diploma in Family Business to be designed keeping in view the fact that about 40% of the students take to family business. The Master's programme in Family Business run by the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India, Ahmedabad may provide some insights in this effort.
Potential for tapping the Alumni needs to be carefully assessed and followed up.
Women's Cell may be formed to take up research on gender related issues and sensitise women holding positions in Panchayat Raj institutions to their rights, duties etc.
Utilising the language laboratory offer courses in Spoken English and communication skills.
In a phased manner provide computer literacy to all students by strengthening computer facilities.
Provide repographic and internet facilities in the library and speed up its automation.
Prepare a decadal plan and seek assistance from the UGC for research projects.
The Peer Team thanks the Principal, members of the Governing Body, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumni for sparing their time to the team for discussions. The role of the Co-ordinator has been very useful in accomplishing our task within the time frame fixed.
