SECTION I: INTRODUCTION
Mithibai College of Arts and Chauhan Institute of Science, Mumbai was established by Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal during the Silver Jubilee celebrations in the year 1961. As an extension to this, the Amrutben Jivanlal College of Commerce and Economics was added in the year 1980 thereby forming the present multi-faculty college of Arts, Science and Commerce. Great visionaries founded the institution with donations totaling around 18 lakhs. Additional infrastructural facilities were added with generous investment by the parent body and philanthropists.

The College, a grant-in-aid linguistic minority institution, located in urban Mumbai, is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. It is recognized for financial assistance by UGC under Section 2f and 12B. It offers education to both boys and girls. From a humble beginning in 1961 with a couple of hundred students, the complex today provides education to 4533 students with an assistance of 94 permanent and 26 temporary teachers, of whom 23 are Ph.D. degree holders and 21 M.Phil degree holders making the student-teacher ratio 38:1. The unit cost of education is Rs.9, 982.00.

The College offers four under graduate programmes; five post graduate programmes and Ph.D. programme in three departments. Four self-financing UG courses and three vocational courses, started with UGC assistance, are also offered.

The College volunteered for assessment and accreditation of its performance and submitted the Self-Study Report (SSR) to the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore. The Peer Team constituted by NAAC to visit the Institution and validate the Self-Study Report includes Prof (Mrs.) Lakshmi Santa Rajagopal, former Vice-Chancellor, Avinashilingam Institute for Home Science and Higher Education for Women, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, as Chairperson, Dr Kiran Angra, Principal, M.D.S.D. Girls' College, Ambala City, Haryana as Member and Dr. K.V. Rao, former Dean, College Development Council, Mangalore University, Mangalore, as Member-Convenor. The Peer Team visited the Institution during 23rd and 24th January 2004.

The Peer Team studied the Self-Study Report prior to the visit. Various departments and infrastructural facilities and support services were visited and discussions were held with the Principal, Board of Management, teaching faculty, non-teaching staff, students, alumni and parents. The visits, discussions and perusal of records enabled the Peer Team to present the following report.

SECTION II: CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
Criterion 1: Curricular Aspects
The college has seven departments in the Faculty of Science (Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, Microbiology, Physics, Statistics and Zoology), nine departments in the Faculty of Arts (English, Economics, Gujarati, Hindi, Marathi, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology) and seven in the Faculty of Commerce (Accountancy, Business Economics, Business Law, Commerce, Environmental Studies, Mathematics and Statistics). Courses leading to B.A., B.Sc., B.Com. and B.M.S. degree of University of Mumbai are offered in the UG programme and in the PG programme M.Sc. in Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Microbiology and Physics are available to students. The Ph.D. programme is available in the departments of Chemistry, Microbiology and Zoology. The course options like M.Sc. by Research is also available.

The College follows the syllabus and regulations for the courses, as prescribed by the University of Mumbai. Many of the courses offered are skill oriented, interdisciplinary in nature and have job potential. The courses like B.M.S., B.Sc. (Computer Science), B.Sc (Biotechnology) are self-financing and are career oriented.

The college has adopted the philosophy of providing education as per the needs of the society and in keeping with this, has enriched the contents through discussions with industrialists, parents and alumni while implementing the curriculum. The Board of Studies and Academic Council of the University have members from the college who contribute to the modernization of the curriculum. The college itself took the initiative and was responsible for starting a job-oriented course in Microbiology, which has shown a good growth potential, and have industrial linkages also.

Courses like M.Sc. by Research in the subjects of Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Physics and Microbiology and Ph.D. in Zoology, Chemistry and Microbiology have industrial applications and this has helped the college to establish close contacts with research centers and industries around.

Even though the college has a wide variety of subjects and courses which are interdisciplinary in nature, enrichment of the courses becomes important because of the rapid advancement that takes place in certain areas of study. Content enrichment courses or short-term courses to supplement the skill of the students may be planned by departments. These may be interdisciplinary in nature also, but the objective is to upgrade the regular course contents of the university.

Criterion 2: Teaching-learning and Evaluation
The selection of students for UG courses is by academic records and for PG programmes interviews are conducted. Vernacular medium students are helped in the initial stages and advanced learners are encouraged to take up seminars and projects in nearby industries.

Teachers decide the teaching plan in the beginning of the academic year for teaching of the subject and discuss the progress with the head of the department. Assignments, regular tests and examinations are conducted periodically. Regular teaching is supplemented by guest lectures and by the use of teaching aids like OHP, charts and models. Evaluation methods are communicated to students through notice boards and the Principal briefs the students about the regulations in his first meeting. Teachers also inform the students about the pattern of examination in the class. To improve the performance of the students in annual examinations, efforts are made by some departments to circulate the pattern of question paper and a question bank prepared by them. This has resulted in a very good performance of the students in University examinations, with many students getting ranks in the final examinations.

The self-appraisal system is not followed in the college. But the head of the department monitors the performance of the teachers and takes necessary corrective measures.

Many of the teachers of the institution have updated their knowledge by participation in refresher courses, national seminars and workshops. The college has organized guest lectures, exhibitions and several such programmes for the benefit of the staff and students.

It is gratifying to note that some departments have developed teaching aids useful to undergraduate education. Entrepreneurial programmes are also organized to help students.

Criterion 3: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The college is recognized as a research center for Zoology, Chemistry and Microbiology. About 15% of the teachers are engaged in active research work. Two minor research projects are sanctioned by the University of Mumbai to Microbiology and Zoology departments. Informal consultancy services in areas of their expertise are offered by some teachers. Many teachers have authored textbooks and have publications to their credit. Papers are presented by some teachers in national and international seminars and many are resource persons in conferences conducted elsewhere.

It is desirable that the college makes efforts to obtain funding from UGC and other agencies for research programmes to strengthen the Post graduate and Ph.D. programmes available in the college.

The NSS unit of the college under the supervision of two designated programme officers, has taken up extension activities in the field of community development, and has constructed balwadis in the adopted villages. Activities like blood donation camps, AIDS awareness and environmental awareness campaigns are conducted. These are carried out in collaboration with NGOs. The involvement of staff and students in NSS activities has brought laurels to the college.

Computer facility for the staff and students is available in eight departments. The maintenance of the computers and accessories is done on annual contract basis.

The college emphasizes the importance of physical education and sports. Limited facilities for indoor games like table tennis; carrom, chess etc are available in the gymkhana. For other indoor games as well as sports like Badminton, Cricket, Water polo and athletics the college hires professional coaches to give training. Financial assistance and other incentives are also provided who excel in sports. As a result of this, many students of the college, both boys and girls have participated in competitions at University, State and National levels and have won several awards.

The college has a well-maintained canteen in the main building, operating on contract basis.

Criterion 5: Student Support & Progression
To motivate the students to excel in their academic activities certain incentives are offered. Financial aid in the form of merit scholarships, merit cum means scholarship and other endowments are provided to the students. The college consistently maintains good results, which include securing a few ranks in the University examination.

The college has a recently started placement cell that arranges campus interviews of students with corporate offices, which approach the college. The faculty of Psychology department informally provides personal counseling for the students.

The college has an alumni association. Alumni efforts to arrange free eye check up camp, informative lectures by doctors is a welcome step.

Subject associations organize exhibitions and various competitions. The college provides recreational facilities through associations, Roratact club, Trekking club etc.

Special mention must be made of the interest of the institution in promoting the cultural programmes in the college. A talent search competition in the beginning of the academic year is conducted to identify students who have the capacity and interest in specific cultural activity and they are given training by professionals. The college bears the expenditure of the entire training and also that of their participation in cultural festivals conducted at inter-collegiate, inter-university and national level. The creditable achievement of the institution in training a large number of students over the years is praiseworthy and the college today can pride itself in the fact that many outstanding personalities in the field of fine arts are its alumni.

SECTION III - OVERALL ANALYSIS
Mithibai College of Arts, Chauhan Institute of Science & Amrutben Jivanlal College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai , Maharashtra State, a co-educational institution situated in urban Mumbai has a history of 42 years. During this period of its existence, it has been striving hard to impart value-oriented education to youth and has initiated several courses of study, which are in tune with the goals and objectives with which it was started. The management of the college has supported the efforts of the staff to equip the students with skills empowering them to become entrepreneurs, sportspersons, artists, social workers, leaders and above all, men and women of character. To meet the challenge of shaping the careers of its students, the college, in the present context, may have to give serious attention to the improvement of the quality content in the courses offered at UG level and PG level. This can be done only by improving the research culture in the college. Many social outreach programmes also become necessary in view of the experience to be given to the students during the course of their study. Inter-departmental consultations and collaborations could be planned and expertise available in the college could be effectively used for the benefit of students.

The following are the considerations and suggestions the Peer Team would like to make for the institution:

Short-term professional and content enrichment courses relevant to the job market could be conducted. Personality development, computer awareness, entrepreneurial scopes and skills, stress management etc are the courses that are useful to all the students. These could be undertaken using the in house facilities.

Research activities need to be strengthened

Library and office records could be computerized for easy monitoring

Alumni association may be activated and services of the alumni could be utilized for planning courses and guest lectures to students and in developmental activities of the college.

A women cell and a counselling center be established

A career guidance bureau may be set up and placement center may be further strengthened

Because of the vicinity of the institution to several industrial establishments, an Industry-Interaction cell may be of immense help for both research and placement

A Botanical garden could be developed

An audio visual center could be established

A multi gym and other sports facilities be set up in the gymkhana

A health care center in the campus is desirable.

The Peer Team records its appreciation of the co-operation and support provided by Dr. Antony Stella, Adviser, NAAC, to the team throughout the visit.
