Profile of SSVP Sanstha Bhausaheb NS Patil Arts and MFMA Commerce CollegeShri. Shivaji Vidya Prasarak Sanstha's Bhausaheb N.S. Patil Arts and Mulla Fidaali Mulla Abadulali Commerce College, Dhule, was established in June 1956 with a modest sterngth of about 100 students. Initially it was only an intermediate college of Arts faculty. S.S.V.P.Sanstha is the first of its kind in the entire region of Khandesh, established in the 1912 by a devoted and dedicated group of persons for imparting education to the weaker sections of the society. On 2 June 1956 SSVP Sansthaâ€™s Arts College was formally opened in the auspicious presence of the first Senior Wrangler of Maharashtra and the Vice Chancellor of the University of Pune. From June 1957 Science wing was started for inter classes and in June 1958 Commerce faculty was opened. In 1960 a post-graduate course in Marathi was introduced and this was also the first of its kind in our district. Thus gradually SSVP Sanstha went on making rapid and impressive strides and can legitimately take pride in its varied achievements in the fields of curriculum and cocurricular activities. This was followed by construction of a Multipurpose building and Auditorium with a generous of Rs.35,000/- by the central Govt. and Sansthaâ€™s own contribution of Rs.50,000/-. For the same purpose our students also made â€˜Shram-Danâ€™ amounting about Rs.4,000/-. It took nearly a span of 10 years for the above mentioned steady progress of the college and now the year 1966 appeared on the horizon which brought some of the rarest memorable golden moments in the history of our sanstha, because it was the Golden Jubilee year of SSVP Sanstha. This Golden Jubilee function was inaugurated by eminent scholar, philosopher and perhaps the greatest teacher and the President of India. SSVP Arts & Commerce College came separately into existence in 1967.
Except M.A. (Psychology) all the courses at Degree and PG level are granted courses.

NAAC report of SSVP Sansthas Bhausaheb NS Patil Arts and MFMA Commerce CollegeSECTION 1: INTRODUCTION
The S.S.V.P.Sanstha's Bhausaheb N.S.Patil Arts and M.F.M.A.Commerce College volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore and submitted the Self study Report in September 2003. The Council constituted a Peer Team comprising Prof. P.K.Rajan, Vice-Chancellor, Kannur University, Kerala as Chairperson, and Prof. S.Ramachandran, Former Dean, College Development Council, Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai as Member-Coordinator, and Dr. R. Rukmani, Principal, MGR-Janaki College for Women, Chennai as Member. The Team visited the College for two days on 25th and 26th February 2004 and made an objective assessment of the academic functioning of the College based on the general guidelines of the NAAC.
Shri Shivaji Vidya Prasarak Sanstha's Bhausaheb N.S.Patil Arts and M.F.M.A. Commerce College, Dhule (Maharashtra) was established in June 1956 by the S.S.V.P.Sanstha. The College is situated in Dhule district in the North eastern corner of the state of Maharashtra, bordering on the states of Gujarat and M.P. This region, with its considerable tribal population, lagged behind in education and, therefore, the establishment of the College came as a blessing. The motto of the College is 'Madayattam Tu Paurasham' which means, ' We are what we make of ourselves'. The S.S.V.P.Sanstha at present manages nineteen other educational institutions in addition to this College.
The College, which began with 156 students in 1956, has now grown into an institution having more than 2000 students. Since August 1990, it is affiliated to the North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon. The College has at present thirteen Departments under the Faculty of Arts (Marathi, English, Hindi, Sanskrit, Ardhamagadhi, Urdu, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, Geography, Sociology, History and Defence Studies) and five Departments under the faculty of Commerce (Accountancy and Costing, Commerce and Business Law, Business Economics and Banking, Business Administration and Computer). The College offers 6 P.G.courses (three additional sections of which are on non- grant basis) and 18 Undergraduate courses.
The total student strength during the academic year 2003-04 is 2093 (U.G.1358; P.G.655; M.Phil 03; Ph.D.17 and Self-Financing courses 60). More than 30% of these students are girls. Most of the students are drawn from the local area and from within the state, and they mostly belong to the socially and economically disadvantaged sections of the society. The College follows the annual pattern, with the University conducting the end-of-the-year examination and the College conducting periodic internal tests and evaluation. The dropout rate in the College is 25% which includes students discontinuing studies and pursuing higher education elsewhere. The unit cost of education in the college is Rs. 7285/- (including salary component). Being a College established as early as 1956, it enjoys the recognition of the U.G.C. under 2 (f) and 12 (b) of the U.G.C Act and functions as a College aided by the state government, with permission to offer a few courses on non-grant basis.
There are 42 permanent teachers, 17 temporary (CHB) teachers and 3 part-time teachers in the College of whom seven are Ph.D holders and 10 possess M.Phil degree. In addition, there is an administrative staff unit comprising 47 persons and a technical staff unit of four.
The College is located in an area of 31 acres, which also houses the Science College and the Engineering College run by the same Educational agency. With a very large number of students and teachers belonging to the various faculties of this educational complex active on the scene, the campus always appears lively with youthful dynamism.
The Peer Team carefully examined the Self-Study Report submitted by the institution. During the two-day visit, the Team could peruse all the related supportive papers and statements provided by the College. The Team visited all the teaching Departments and other centers including Library, the hostels, the sports and games facilities, Computer Center and the Canteen. The Team also had useful interaction with the Principal, the members of the Governing Committee, the teaching and non-teaching staff, the students, parents and alumni and other extension activity groups. The Peer Team's objective assessment of the institution, based on the above exercise and keeping in view the seven criteria identified by NAAC, is given briefly in the following pages.
SECTION 2: CRITERION-WISE EVALUATION
CRITERION I: Curricular Aspects
The Institution offers 18 programmes in UG Arts & Commerce Courses. It offers six subjects in the PG programme - Arts and M.Com and a Maharashtra State Certificate course in IT and a Ph.D. programme in Psychology.
They also offer from 2003-04 additional sections in PG Courses in Marathi, Hindi, and English on a non-grant basis. All the programmes offered are career-oriented. Students can join professional courses enabling them to join B.Ed, B.P.Ed, L.L.B, M.S.W etc. Commerce students are fully equipped to start their own vocations. The College is affiliated to the North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon. Students are given the option to choose any subject out of 11 special level subjects available. The mission and goals of the College are imparted through the curricula so that they are aware of political, economic and social currents and cross currents, and to encourage community activities etc., Introduction of a new programme is possible at the earliest. Eleven teachers are members of the Boards of Studies and one among them is a Chairman and they have helped in restructuring courses at the University level. Renowned educationists are invited to address both the staff and students. The College evinces healthy rapport not only with their peers but also with various industrial units like MIDC, Spinning Mill, Dairy etc. The College has conducted workshops in Geography, Defence studies and Psychology and a national seminar in Economics & another in Psychology. The College has its own staff academy.
CRITERION II: Teaching, Learning And Evaluation
The students are selected for admissions through their academic record and as per the University norms. A merit list is prepared and admission given accordingly. The College had taken care of educationally disadvantaged students, by way of remedial classes in English in 1997-98. It has now sent a proposal to the UGC for revival of the same. Advanced learners are encouraged by giving them reference books and in case of M.Com students they are offered projects instead of regular theory papers. The teachers have teaching plans with emphasis on learner-oriented plan. They have unitized the syllabi to suit their teaching schedule, which is closely monitored. In case of not completing the syllabus within the stipulated time they take additional classes. Seminar discussions supplement their lecture methods.
During the previous year the number of working days has been 228, of which 180 days are teaching days. The percentage of classes conducted by full-time faculty during the year has been 90%. The non-teaching to teaching staff ratio is very good i.e. 1:1. Examination schedules and evaluation methods are communicated through notice board announcements and are also read out in classrooms. The vacancies are approved by the JD (HE) and reservation of post is finalised by the University. The Institution has had the necessary interaction with their peers to help them bring about new innovations etc. They have had access to nine Faculty development programs viz. Refresher courses. It is heartening to note that five teachers are recipients of Awards in recognition of their services and one of them by the President of India for his contribution to National Integration.
The Institution follows the self-appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the teaching staff as per the guidelines of the UGC and the University and the evaluation of the teachers is conducted by the Committee consisting of representatives of the Government, University, College management, Principal, Subject Expert and HOD. University has designated an Academic Audit to evaluate teachers every year. The College maintains a suggestion box, which includes student's evaluation of their teachers. This is monitored by the Principal and HOD. They share their suggestions and improvements to make the concerned teachers more effective.
The College has conducted workshops, seminars for the Department of Geography, Defence Studies, Economics and Psychology between 2002-03. UGC Sponsored National Seminars and Conferences were also held by the Department of English.
CRITERION III: Research, Consultancy & Extension
The Department of Psychology of the College has been recognised as a Research Center for Ph.D program. There are 4 scholars registered for M.Phil and 25 for Ph.D. The Department has the special distinction of being the one and only Department in the College and in the entire University area for the pursuit of research. The College has submitted 25 proposals to UGC for minor research projects. They have 10 Ph.D/M.Phil approved Guides/ Supervisors. In spite of the fact that the College had secured recognition under section 2f & 12b of the UGC Act, the College had not utilized this advantage for furthering faculty development and research activities. With all the Research backing, the College has not publicised its expertise which needs to be looked into. The Institution has designated a Professor and additional charge given to him for extension activities. The College takes legitimate pride in conducting extensive extension activities - community development, health and hygiene awareness, adult education and literacy, AIDS awareness, social work, medical camp, blood donation camp and environment awareness, anti-addiction device, tree plantation, water shed management etc. They do have outreach programmes. They also work with NGOs like, Lions club and Rotary club, students' organisations and with GOs - District Health Department, District Collector Office, Adult Education Department, Forest Department, District Statistical Office, Social Welfare Office and the Dhule Zilla Parishad. Students and teachers are encouraged to participate in extension activities by providing all the required facilities and their active involvement is appreciated by giving certificates, displaying their names on the notice board and publishing them in newspapers. The NSS units cover a very wide range of extension activities, a proof of the values inculcated in the minds of the students by the College.
CRITERION IV: Infrastructure & Learning Resources
The College has adequate infrastructure to run the various programs. It also possesses the necessary learning resources. The campus is allowed to be used by external agencies for the conduct of various competitive examinations and training programmes. The Computer lab is used for MSCIT course in the evening sessions. The Auditorium and other halls are used for seminars, workshops and cultural activities by other agencies like the University, Government Departments, and Public Institutions. The campus has a compound wall all around. All the rooms are airy and well lit. The statue of Shivaji Maharaj installed at the entrance to the College is a source of inspiration for students and teachers. An environment awareness has been created in the minds of the students by the NSS by planting trees and keeping the premises clean.
The Library building of the College is shared along with the Science College, a sister institution located nearby and run by the same Sanstha. There are a total of 73,979 books covering a wide variety of subjects in the library. About 50 journals and periodicals are subscribed to for the library.

The College has provided separate hostels for girls and boys. The boys hostel consists of 18 rooms and accommodates 63 students. The separate girls hostel can accommodate 50 girls. The residents of the hostel dine in a College Mess common to the scholars and students of other sister institutions. The physical facilities and toilets in the Hostel could be better.
The College had the honour of visit by some of the greatest leaders like Dr. Radhakrishnan, Smt. Indira Gandhi, Shri. Morarji Desai.
CRITERION V: Students Support And Progression
The percentage of students who had appeared for the final exam after the required period of study in 2001-02 were 64.6 for UG and 81.4 for PG. Vertical progression of education is 20% and 40% are attracted towards employment. Some of the alumni are well placed, holding prominent positions. The College has not organized yet a Career Guidance Cell nor has it a Placement Cell. The students are to be motivated and properly guided to take-up competitive exams. During the past only one student has passed IAS and 2 the SET exam. Economically disadvantaged students are provided financial assistance through a variety of scholarships and the number of recipients under various categories had been 2574 in 2001-02 and 2337 in 2002-03.Special mention should be made that a large number of P.G students of this college secure the Eklavya scholarships awarded by the state government every year based on merit. The college has 1 NSS unit of 220 students and one NCC boys unit of 108 cadets. The college gets the feedback from the students through Student Council meetings, suggestion box and discussion with teachers and students. In the absence of a Grievance Redressal Cell these are monitored by the Principal and necessary action taken.
CRITERION VI: Organisation And Management

An Employees Credit Co-op society, which is common to all the employees of the Institutions run by the Sanstha advances loans to the college staff up-to a maximum of Rs. 2 Lakhs.
The College has been having a deficit budget over the last two years.
CRITERION VII: Healthy Practices

The college is sensitised to latest managerial concepts of strategic plan through regular meetings of the HODs with the Principal. The staff work as a team through various committees, which ensures smooth working of curricular and extra curricular activities. Decisions are usually taken by the Principal in consultation with the HODs and there is a healthy atmosphere in the College for academic pursuits.

The sense of civic responsibility is inculcated in the minds of students through various activities like Cycle rally for protection of environment, population day, slum area cleanliness, removal of social taboos, anti tobacco and drugs campaign.
SECTION 3: OVERALL ANALYSIS
The Peer Team had a pre-visit image of the College based on the details provided in its well-designed Self-study Report in two volumes. The extensive interactions during the two-day visit helped the Team to understand directly the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern. The Team is of the view that the College has succeeded in a large measure in realizing the goals for which it was established in 1956. It has a team of dedicated persons who can, with diligent planning and well-directed work, lead the College to greater success in future. The tradition it has already established in academic activity should help it move with greater confidence as it approaches the Golden Jubilee year in 2006.
The Peer Team thinks that the main strength of the College is its own tradition. The rapport that is visible in the relationship among teachers, students, the Principal, the Management and the non-teaching staff is rooted in this tradition. The success of the College in fulfilling community aspirations is manifest in the involvement of both society leaders and ordinary people with the destinies of the institution. The Team noticed that the College has taken particular attention to provide opportunities for the weaker sections of the society thereby upholding the principle of equity in higher education.
Both the postgraduate and undergraduate courses offered at the College are a combination of traditional subjects of theoretical orientation and emerging disciplines of practical importance. The execution of the academic programmes maintains a satisfactory degree of efficiency in general. The College is bound to go by the scheme and syllabus set by the University; naturally, it cannot take any initiative in designing its own courses. However, it should be pointed out that initiatives for starting vocational-oriented short-term courses to the benefit of students have not been forthcoming so far. The College can get permission for such courses on a non-grant basis from the University. This is an area to be explored.
The teachers of the College, by and large, discharge their duties with sincerity and dedication. They are sound in respect of their qualification; of the 42 permanent teachers, there are 7 teachers having Ph.D. and 10 having M.Phil. There are 6 supervising teachers at the Ph.D / M.Phil. level and 9 students have already secured these degrees. The performance of teachers has not been bad in respect of participation in national / international seminars, presentation of papers, attendance in refresher courses, etc. But the Peer Team felt that as a college receiving UGC assistance right from its inception the College could have made more effective advantage of the various non-plan schemes of the UGC to support affiliated colleges including major and minor research projects.
The students of the College have also set a good record in the maintenance of discipline, participation in learning and extension activities and in effectively taking part in sports / games / cultural activities. In all these areas they have already won laurels by University standards. The NCC and NSS activities deserve a special mention in this regard.
The performance of students in University level examinations, as subject-wise analyses show, is very satisfactory. Not only that the pass percentage is good but students are able to secure high ranks also in University exams. But the Peer Team noted that a large number of students who fare well in subjects ultimately fail in securing a degree because they fail in the Compulsory English Paper. This is an unfortunate situation and an action plan has to be drawn to help those students who need extra attention to tide over this difficulty. The rural background of the students and the use of Marathi as the medium of instruction may be contributory factors leading to this situation; but the College cannot continue to plead helplessness any more. Similarly, in certain courses like B.Com. and M.Com. the percentage of success is rather low. The blame is usually put on the nature of subject combinations, but the problem has to be seriously analysed and the reasons identified.
Research activity in the College, in general, is yet to gather momentum. Despite the fact that the Department of Psychology is an approved research center of the University and that a few teachers guide research at the Ph.D / M.Phil levels, the over-all achievement in research remains below expectation. Allied to this is the issue of modernisation. The computerisation of the Library is yet to make significant progress. There is no Internet connection. The possibility of getting UGC aid in this regard is not yet explored. Similarly, the administrative work in the office also follows conventional ways; computerizing the office has not been given serious consideration so far.
The strength of the College often has a visibility which tends to obscure some of the limitations pointed out above. The positive feature seems to be the inner vitality of the tradition the College has established, and it can not only sustain its achievements but also help in overcoming the limitations.
The Peer Team wishes to compliment the College for all its laudable achievements. The Team also wishes to put forward a few suggestions which can help in the College's efforts to consolidate the gains made and overcome the present limitations:
Short-term courses of vocational orientation may be introduced on a non-grant basis and students may be encouraged to do these parallel courses outside the college hours. The interests of girl students may be specially taken into account while planning such courses.
An action plan may be formulated and implemented for making optimum utilization of the UGC schemes for affiliated colleges towards promotion of research and augmentation of infrastructure facilities.
A programme may be introduced in the College for helping weak students in improving their proficiency in English and in promoting their communication skills in English.
Results of university examinations in the College may be analysed carefully to identify the causes of large-scale failures in certain areas and find remedial measures.
Library books may be made more accessible to the students who need them by introducing appropriate measures. Reading room facilities may also be enhanced.
Computerisation of the Library may be accelerated and Internet facility may be provided.
College office may be computerized.
The Alumni Association may be formally constituted and involved in matters relating to the further development of the College.
Canteen facilities may be made more accessible to all students, and hostel conditions may be improved.
A Career Development Centre and Health Centre may be planned for the College.
The facilities in the Computer Centre may be utilized properly to provide short-term training for the faculty in the use of computers and offer short-term courses for students.
An apex committee may be formed in the College to prioritise the growth requirements of the institution and chalk out a detailed programme for the remaining years of the Plan period.
Scholarships and other forms of aid provided to poor students may be further enhanced to the extent possible.
The Peer Team wishes to place on record its appreciation of the dedication and maturity shown by the Principal of College and the Governing Committee in developing the institution in an atmosphere of understanding, co-operation and confidence. The Team wishes the College all the best and hopes it will discover new heights of glory in the years to come.
