The peer team, after going through the self-study report and after its visit to various academic and physical facilities, is very much impressed by the progress of the People's College, Nanded in transacting the empowerment of women, which is a goal of the institution. The college has earned a reputation for imparting quality education and a sense of discipline to the younger generation. Women students have all the facilities required by them.

The peer team considers that there are a number of essential features of People's College, Nanded. College's approach to quality assurance and standards which it would wish to commend. Also, the peer team would like to bring to the attention of the college certain concerns for its consideration. The peer team appreciates the institution for the following aspects;

Encouragement and the support given by the management to the institution, by offering membership in the Managing Committee.

Dedication and commitment of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the institution.

Effective leadership and good human relationship resulting in efficient team work

Strict discipline in the institution regarding regular assemblies, dress codes and prompt attendance.

Smooth functioning of the tutor-wards system that facilitates the monitoring of the students, both academic and personal.

Facilitating aspect of the institution to promote student participation and achievement in sports, and

Adequacy, maintenance and future planning of infrastructure

Keeping in view the future plans of the institution, which is not yet autonomous at present, the peer team would suggest the following to the institution for consideration and follow up:

While the peer team appreciates the overall mission of the college, which is empowerment of women, the college should identify specific objectives and make strategic plans to attain the same, by providing entrepreneurial and employment oriented skill forming extra-curricular courses like fashion designing, secretarial practice, fine arts, and work experience in selected fields.

The college may explore the possibility of introducing more course options to increase flexibility in course combinations keeping in mind the latest trends and societal needs for men students, like accounting, office procedures, electric and electronic maintenance, outdoor work like building roads, maintenance of water supply, etc. with 'Earn while you learn' opportunities.

Access to computers and student support services like placement cell need to be strengthened. With the appointment of a new counsellor, the counselling and guidance cell may evolve effective planning and suitable strategies for the benefit of the students.

Training programme and course work may be provided to students to pass examinations held for recruitment to jobs held by Union and State Public Service Commission, banks, corporate bodies etc.

Formal mechanism for collecting feedbacks from students on the various aspects of their learning experience at the departmental / institutional level may be instituted.

With the construction of new buildings, the college should make provision to improve facilities for the faculty, like staff rooms and intercom, internet facilities.

The hostel for poor students which is now functioning may be improved. Presently each student is preparing his own meals in his room. This may be changed by providing common kitchen facilities to enable community cooking by the students to save time and to have access to better meals.

The central library of the college is one of the rare, rich and comprehensive learning facilities in the Marathwada region. The People's College may enter into Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with other educational institutions in the neighborhood widening Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University for research purposes and provide access on such terms as are helpful to raise resources and to encourage research in social sciences.

Considering the need for interdisciplinary studies which the Principal and Management appreciate, the departments of economics, commerce and management could be grouped under a School of Management, Commerce and Economic Sciences duly upgrading economics department to post graduate level to provide specialization in (i) Economic Development (ii) Mathematical Economics and (iii) economic history. This school may undertake benchmark studies to develop the Marathwada region in partnership with rest of Maharashtra. Similarly, the departments of Hindi, Marathi and English may be grouped as School of Indian and Foreign Languages with provision for teaching communication skills in English, French, German and Spanish as desired by many students.

Many teachers have attained M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees and their thesis are commendable and worthy of publication. The college may take leadership in forming a co-operative or corporate body in collaboration with higher education institutions in Marathwada and publish inexpensive and condensed editions of thesis, after proper editorial and expert guidance duly refereed. This will encourage the teachers to publish their works and a large body of students is benefit by reading them; this is cost-effective and cost-oriented apporach.

The college which has completed half a century of higher education can aspire for autonomous status now and deemed university status in due course.

The Marathwada region has a large tribal population. The department of sociology in collaboration with other departments and tribal research centre in Madhya Pradesh, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh could develop research relevant to tribal areas and tribal populations.

The self-appraisal and other appraisal mechanism of teachers need to be formalized.
In order to widen the horizons of teaching faculty, it is necessary to recruit teaching staff from other universities in India to avoid inbreeding and to benefit by overall national objectives, which inspired the founder Swami Ramanand Teerth to establish People's College.

The college has a good health facility by further improvement each student should have Health Card duly prepared for the health care, when he commences the first year of the college for continuous follow up in subsequent years.

The peer team is of the opinion that this exercise will be useful to the institution to initiate the quality enhancement strategies towards further growth and development.
