SECTION II: CRITERION WISE ANALYSIS
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
Jalgaon District Maratha Vidya Prasarak Co-operative Samaj Ltd. Jalgaon established the Arts, Science and Commerce college at Jalgaon in 1972. This college at the time of establishment was named as Nutan Maratha College and later renamed after the names of the donor as Shri S. S. Patil Arts, Shri Babusaheb T.T. Salunkhe commerce and Shri G.R. Pandit Science College, Jalgaon. The mission of the college has been;
To reach out to the poor, the needy and neglected youth.
To boost their courage and enkindle confidence in them.
To enable them to claim higher education/learning as their legitimate right.
Since its inception, the college has been striving hard to provide higher education to the poor boys and girls from nearby villages in the vicinity of Jalgaon town. The college was established in 1972 with B.A., B.Com and B.Sc. programme options. PG programme in Commerce faculty was introduced in 1982. In Arts faculty PG programme was introduced successively from 1982 to 1993 in Economics, History, Marathi, Hindi, English, Urdu, Political Science, Psychology, Geography and Defense Studies. Similarly in Science Faculty PG programme was introduced in Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Geography and Zoology from 1990 onwards. Due to non availability of student strength the college is currently not offering PG programmes in Physics, Botany and Zoology. Similarly the Industrial Chemistry offered by the Chemistry department has been dropped due to the non availability of financial support from the state Government. At present, the college provides 11 programme options in UG and 4 in PG of Arts faculty, 10 programme options in UG and 2 in PG of Science faculty and one programme each in UG and PG of Commerce faculty. In addition to these courses, the college has B. Lib and M. Lib courses. However, since 2003 the B. Lib course is not being offered. In Marathi, Hindi, Economics and Commerce Ph.D programme is also available. All the UG courses are covered under the grant in aid scheme of the Maharashtra State. Post Graduate courses including M. Lib are self finance courses. All the UG and PG courses are in annual mode.
There is no scope for horizontal mobility. However, the students of B.A/ B.Sc. can be admitted to PG programme in Geography and the M.A geography/ M.Sc Geography degrees are provided based on the stream from which they have completed the UG degree.
The courses are designed by the North Maharashtra University with the result; the college does not have any significant role in restructuring the curriculum. The teachers who are members of BOS, faculty and/or Academic Council have been playing an important role in the updating of the syllabus and getting the recommendation of BOS approved in the bodies of the University.
The college can not introduce any kind of new programme of its own unless permitted by the NMU. Under the present affiliating system of the University, the college takes one year to implement a new programme. Inter disciplinary/multi disciplinary approach is not evident in the programme options. However, the component of inter disciplinary approach is preset to the extent that certain subjects like Psychology, Defense Studies, Geography, Sociology, Library Science, Botany and Zoology have inter disciplinary topics in their syllabus.
Criterion II: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The students are admitted to the UG courses on a first come first serve basis. An admission committee comprising Principal and Vice-Principals verify the academic record of the students and follow the minimum requirement of marks and Government norms during the admissions. Since the Management is also running Junior college, preference is given to the students coming from their junior college.
For B.Sc computer science as the seats are limited, the admission committee prepares a merit list and displays on the notice board. For Post-graduate courses in Science Faculty and in B.Lib and M.Lib courses, admissions are made as per the Central admission program of North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon. In Arts and Commerce Faculties the Committee comprising the Principal, Vice-Principals and Heads of the Departments concerned makes admissions. In these courses, the merit list is prepared by the admission committee and displayed on the notice board.
The students at UG and PG level, after admission, are continuously exposed to curricular and extracurricular activities. These include classroom lectures, practical component in science subjects, home assignments, seminars, group discussions, study tours and visits to Industries. Besides, in certain UG and PG courses, in the final year, students are involved in Project work. Teachers monitor the students in completing the project work.
Bridge courses are not available in the college. However, in subjects like English, Mathematics, Commerce, History and Computer Science teachers claim providing remedial coaching to the needy students as and when necessary.
The advanced learners are provided more books. The unit cost of education for undergraduate course for the year 2002-2003 has been Rs. 11,105/- (including salary component) while for the PG courses it has been Rs. 493/-.
The teaching both in UG and PG courses is carried out in accordance with the teaching plan prepared by the teachers at the commencement of every session. Whenever required, teachers engage extra lectures either after regular classes or on holidays to complete the syllabus well before the commencement of term end examinations. Head of the departments review the teaching programme every month. At the end of each term, the teacher submits the syllabus completion report to the Principal. During 2002-2003, the college has had 238 working days and 196 teaching days.
The teachers follow conventional lecture method. In some departments, teachers use overhead projector as a teaching aid. Besides, in Geography, Physics, Zoology, Electronics, Botany and Chemistry departments, teaching aids such as models, charts, and maps are used. Department of English uses audio-visual facilities like tape recorder, cassette player and TV to teach phonology. BBC cassettes are made available to the students to watch the plays and pronunciation of English. History department has prepared a number of slides of Ajanta caves for the benefit of students.
The teachers are recruited through a committee constituted for the purpose according to the rules of University and Government. The Principal and the management can appoint temporary teachers purely on adhoc basis or contributory staff on clock-hour basis. The management bears the expenses of salaries of such teachers. The teaching faculty of college at present includes 87 permanent and 2 clock-hour basis teachers. The teachers are highly qualified. Nineteen of them have Ph.D, twenty one of them have M.Phil and forty-nine of them have PG degrees. At present the college does not have temporary teachers. Number of administrative staff members is 107 with the result; the ratio of 89:107 between the teachers and non-teaching staff is rather high.
The college encourages the teachers to participate in refresher and orientation courses, seminars and workshops. As a result, teachers of many departments have been from time to time participating in workshops, seminars, refresher and orientation courses conducted by North Maharashtra University of Jalgaon or other Universities in Maharashtra and neighbouring states.
Many teachers of the college have been the Chairpersons and or members of the Board of studies in their respective subjects, members of Faculty and Academic council of North Maharashtra University. Besides many of them have been serving as paper setters, members of BOE and resource persons in refresher courses. Some of the teachers have been the VC nominee as subject experts in selection committee.
Due to affiliating regulations of North Maharashtra University, the college cannot introduce any innovative evaluation procedures. The college conducts, tutorials, tests, mid-term and term end examinations. The controller of examinations of the University announces the dates of commencement of examinations, which is displayed on the college notice board. The success rate of UG and PG students during 2002-2003 is encouraging. From time to time, the college has been procuring ranks in several subjects both at UG and PG level.
The college follows the self-appraisal method of teachers as per the format and requirement of Maharashtra Government. The teachers evaluate their own performance on the strength of the actual work done by them. Head of the department and Principal then signs these forms. Verification of the self-appraisal forms indicates that Principal's suggestions on improvements by the teacher are not forthcoming. This could be more effective. There is no formal evaluation of teachers by the students.
Criterion III Research, Consultancy and Extension
The college is a recognized center of Post-graduate studies, with the result that it is sensitized to the research activities. Among the 87 permanent faculty members, 19 have Ph.D and 21 have M.Phil degrees. In addition some teachers have currently registered for Ph.D programme of North Maharashtra University and Yashwant Rao Chauvan Maharashtra State Open University. Six teachers of the college have been recognized as research guides of North Maharashtra University. Teachers have completed 8 minor research projects of UGC with a total outlay or Rs. 1,15,425/-. Currently 1 major research project with a total outlay of Rs. 3,58,040/- and 4 minor research projects of UGC with a total outlay of Rs.1,72,500/- are in operation. The college has also submitted application to UGC for recognition and financial support under COSIP programme. Though the teachers have been publishing papers in National and Internal journals, the number of publications is not adequate. Many teachers have published books in their subjects. The college encourages the teachers to avail the UGC-FIP scheme. Few of the teachers have participated in national conferences and international conferences held in India. One teacher from the Department of Economics has participated in an international conference held in China. Formal research laboratories are yet to be established in science departments. The teachers involved in research are yet to provide consultancy services. As a result linkages with institutes and industries are not forthcoming.
In order to promote cultural activities of the college, students are encouraged to practice drama and music during leisure hours. One teacher has been put in charge of the cultural activities of the students. Further, once a year the college also conducts competitions in cultural events for recognizing the talents of the students. The English department has formed literary association through which story telling, presentation of scene from a play and English debating are promoted.
The college promotes the students to participate in extension activities through NCC and NSS units. One teacher has been given the additional charge of the extension activities. Both NSS and NCC units have brought laurels to the college. Few of the NCC cadets have represented in RD camp, Thal Sena camp and Independence Day camp at Delhi and have won role of honours. The NCC unit organizes trekking, Para sailing, rock climbing and cycle expedition to the cadets. Further, both units have under taken a number of community development programmes. Blood donation camps, AIDS and Environment awareness, Medical camps, Pulse-polio camps, Tree plantation campus and Adult literary programmes have been organized. College also has achieved progress in sports activities. Many students have represented the college at the University and Inter University meets in sports events. It is gratifying to note that some of the women teachers of the college have been serving as Family councilors and have successfully counseled the needy families. Some of the male teachers have been providing community development services particularly in rural areas. Few of the teachers have won state and Zilla Parishad awards as best teachers.
The Peer team appreciates the good work made by the teachers in extension activities. However, it is desirable to encourage the teachers to:
Apply for financial support from other funding agencies of the country
Avail career development facilities of UGC
Publish papers in refereed journals
Develop linkages with reputed institutes in industries.

The hostel facility for boys needs to be established. The parking facility is also made available on the campus. The college requires better canteen and satisfactory ladies common room.
The maintenance of the existing infrastructure is found upto the mark. The college might be facing some difficulties in managing with enrollment of more than 4000 students which is a concern of future growth. However, the upgradation and renovations of the infrastructure is observed keeping pace with the academic advancement in the college. The college is taking proper care for the optimal use of available infrastructure. The college further requires providing facilities like health centre and photocopying. The centre for career guidance cum competitive examination preparations could be highly appreciated.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The college has enough support services to ensure the physical and intellectual health of all its constituencies.

The departments of the college have been also organizing career oriented and entrepreneurship developments programme along with necessary counseling. The college has adopted a good practice of constituting student council for the involvement of students in various programmes.
The college has initiated an effective mechanism to use student feedback for quality enhancement. The prospectus of the college gives guidance to students about admission, the fee structure, provision of financial aid and other support services. However, the policy and distribution of financial aid to the students need to be expanded. The college requires offering placement services to its students. There appears permanent feature of inviting eminent personalities to deliver popular lectures for the benefit of the students. The alumni association still to be formalized with legal shaping and constitution.
Criterion VI: Organization and Management
The college is managed by the Jalgaon District Maratha Vidya Prasarak Co-operative Samaj Ltd., whose executive council is comprised of 23 members from different fields.

The college observes academic rules and regulations as per the statutory provisions of North Maharashtra University under the Common University Act of Maharashtra Government. As the UG programmes run according to grant-in-aid pattern, these require complying with some state Government directives also.
The principal executes various affairs pertaining to academic, administrative and financial matters of the college. He is assisted by vice-principals, registrar, heads of the departments, and conveners of different committees. This is a clear evidence of participatory management of the college with relevant transparency.
The academic and administrative planning in the college is found moving hand in hand. The college has applied possible management techniques and technologies for efficient implementation of every administrative and academic policy. There are certain welfare schemes through credit society for its employees. However, still college requires establishing grievance redressal mechanisms at different levels of its functioning.
