Areas of Concern and Suggestions:
The Peer Team also observes certain areas of concern. These critical areas may be addressed on priority basis for the overall improvement of quality in higher education with reference to the college. They are as follows:
The present teacher-taught ratio; very high number of teachers on CHB, concommitent with high dropout rates of students vis-à-vis low quality of results may be addressed on priority.
Better reading habits need to be systematically inculcated on the campus.
In order to check the poor attendance of students for classes, seminars and internal assessment tests, a method of awarding certificates to those students who participate in the internal tests and seminars may be initiated. This would encourage the students in active participation.
Academic rapport with industries, especially with agro-based industries may be developed.
Availability of Internet facility leading to a better information and knowledge flow on the campus may be chanelized to expose the teachers and students to innovative teaching, learning and evaluation processes.
The Department of Botany may be encouraged to develop one more extensive Botanical Garden for rare medicinal plants.
Teachers may be motivated to seek financial assistance of UGC and other national agencies to pursue major and minor research projects. The research ethos on the campus has to be strengthened and exceptional merit and performance may be recognized and rewarded.
The library may be oriented towards automation specially with reference to the title and author index, lending and retrieving process in order to take the Library to the door steps of the user.
Efforts may be made to provide teaching staff as per UGC norms to PG Courses and also the necessary infrastructural facilities. The present unit cost for PG Courses is very low and alarming. The college authorities may assess the seat matrix pattern and outcome of all the P.G.courses as per the need and quality and UGC guidelines. The strength of P.G.students to each course subjectwise may be rationalized as per the UGC norms.
Discontinuation of UGC assisted vocational course of Industrial Chemistry is a matter of concern.
The grievance redressal cell for employees and students needs to be formalized and made functional.
The assessment of teachers, courses and college by the students and their follow up is to be institutionalized.
The career guidance and placement cell may be established.
The Computer Science laboratory needs to be updated.
The college may offer certificate courses on job or skill oriented topics alongwith degree programme in order to make students employable.
Remedial coaching classes for the students may be initiated on priority.
Computer and other related short term courses may be offered to enhance the learning skills and employment opportunity.
Spoken and written English course may be offered to the students coming from rural background to enhance their communication skill and development of personality.
The college may provide a competitive examination coaching center.
The Peer Team is of the opinion that this exercise would help the college to initiate quality enhancement strategies towards future growth and development.
