Profile of Hutatma Rajguru Mahavidyalaya (HRM)

With the advent of the new movement led by Mahatma Jyotirao Phule and other social reformers who strove for bringing about a social revolution based on the principles of liberty, equality of opportunities, social justice and welfare of the downtrodden through the process of education, a new sense of awareness stirred the socio-political life of Maharashtra. A spirit of renaissance was experienced in cities like Pune. However, the overwhelming majority of people living in the villages and remote parts of Maharashtra remained away from this spirit.

The Peer team perused and analysed the self-study report submitted by the institution. During institutional visit the team went through all the relevant documents, visited the department facilities, and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co curricular, extracurricular, sports and extension facilities of the institution were visited. The peer team also interacted with the management, the Principal, faculty, non- teaching staff, students, parents and alumni/alumnae of the institution. Based on the above exercise, and keeping in mind the criteria identified by NAAC, the peer team presents below the assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern.

Section 2: Criterion - wise Analysis
Criterion 1: Curricular Aspects
As an affiliated College of the University of Pune the College follows the syllabi prescribed by the university for the Humanities, Science and Commerce faculties both at the under-graduate and post-graduate levels in the non-semester (annual) patterns. The College offers UG programmes in Arts, Commerce and Science and PG programmes in English, Marathi, Economics and Commerce.

Field visits and industrial visits are also arranged to provide a practical orientation about the subjects to the students.

Criterion 2: Teaching-learning and Evaluation
Admissions to various courses of study in the College are in accordance with the policy of reservation of the govt. of Maharashtra. The College does not conduct entrance tests for admissions. The minimum number of marks for passing the previous course is the only criterion. This is done because the students who approach this College are from the families, which are deprived of their educational facilities. Oral and written tests are conducted for vocational courses.

They are very definitely against the commercialisation of education and maintain it as service oriented institution. There is also a Local Managing Committee that has been constituted according to the norms. It consists of the representatives of the management, the representatives of the teaching and non-teaching staff.

The management is taking active interest in improving the working of the institution. They belong to different walks of life and have made a mark in their respective professions. They are a resource of great strength to the institution. The College has an inbuilt mechanism for evaluating the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff by verifying the records they are expected to maintain and the responsibilities are reshuffled accordingly. A special committee has been appointed for preparing the calendar.

The various departments submit their requirements to the Principal. These requirements are put forward before the purchase committee and it prioritises and makes final decisions.

The College is a co-educational institution. The Peer team was informed that there is a healthy interaction among girls and boys. They participate in various games and sports in a very competitive and sportive spirit.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
Hutatma Rajguru Mahavidyalaya, over a period of twenty-six years of its existence, has rendered great service to the youth mostly coming from hilly and tribal rural areas who belong to economically and socially weaker sections of the society. Most of its students were first generation learners. Nearly 40% of its students are girls. The College has played an important role in educating and empowering the girls of this region. Many of its students have done well both in academic field and sports and games. A good number of NCC Cadets joined Defence and Police Services. The Alumni and alumnae of the College have made a mark in different walks of life. A good number of them are job-makers. Community oriented programmes are organized through NSS activities. The management of the College is progressive in its outlook. The inspiration generated by the founder President of the Mandal, late Shri. Sahbraoji Butlepatil, is still the motivating force for the management and at various levels of College administration. However, growth and excellence are continuous processes. Higher education in India is undergoing fast changes and forward-looking institutions have to meet the challenges arising out of the changing scenario. Keeping this in mind, while appreciating the good work done by the College over the last quarter century, the Peer team would like to draw the attention of the College to the following areas of concern.

The Peer team is happy to note that out of 36 permanent teachers 5 hold Ph.D. degrees and 12 have qualified for M.Phil. degree. Seven have registered for Ph.D. and one teacher has submitted dissertation for M.Phil. degree. The College may initiate steps to see that over the next 5 to 6 years all its younger faculty complete their doctoral programmes. Teachers may also be encouraged to organize more seminars and workshops at the College level for exposing the students and faculty to the developments taking place in different disciplines. Teachers should also be encouraged to apply for more minor and major research projects for which funds are available in the UGC.

In the course of interaction with the management and the Principal the Peer team was informed that the construction of hostels for girls and boys is under serious consideration. The team is of the view that this facility will go a long way in helping the tribal and other village students in getting better education. Steps may be initiated for constructing these hostels at the earliest.

There is a need for a well-equipped Auditorium for the College having about 4000 students (Degree and Junior Colleges put together). The Peer team was shown the cellar of the College which was planned as an Auditorium, but this place is presently made available to the government for running Industrial Training Institute. The team is informed that this is a temporary arrangement and very soon the College will get back the Auditorium. The College may expedite steps for getting back the Auditorium for its use.

The College has very good facility for games like Kabbadi, netball, basket ball. Volleyball etc., but grounds for games like foot ball, hockey are not presently available. The Peer team is informed that the College is likely to get about 7 acres of land adjacent to College premises from the Government of Maharashtra. This will be a good addition to the Sports Department of the College. The Peer team noticed the vast talent in the boys and girls of the College mostly coming from the villages. The College may take necessary steps to provide grounds for foot ball, hockey etc.

The College has good Gymnasium facilities separately for boys and girls. This is quite appreciable. However, the students at present lack facilities for indoor games. The Peer team is informed that there is a proposal to construct a multipurpose hall that will meet this requirement. Similarly, at present there is no canteen facility inside the campus. Already canteen construction has begun. The Peer team hopes that this will soon be completed and made available to the students.

The College Library needs more space. In the course of interaction with the Librarian, the Peer team was informed that the management is seized of this problem. The team suggests that action may be initiated for overcoming the space problem in the Library. The Librarian may also initiate steps for its computerisation.

The College is located amidst villages. It is desirable that certain agriculture- oriented courses are started. Short-term agriculture marketing courses may be designed and offered on self-financing basis. This, incidentally, leads to more and more people becoming job-makers.

The College may pay greater attention to the promotion of cultural and creative activities among the students. Availability of Auditorium among other things will give greater fillip to these activities.

The College should encourage its students to become job-makers. For this purpose, an 'Entrepreneurship Development Cell' may be established which will regularly arrange interactive seminars/sessions between students and successful business persons and industrialists and other entrepreneurs. This will motivate some students to envisage an entrepreneurial career in their future. The Peer team, while interacting with the management, raised this issue and the team is happy to note their positive response.

The Peer team is appreciative of the steps being taken by the College in spreading computer awareness among its students with its own lab and with the help of its sister concern, namely, the Institute of Management and Computer Studies (IMACS). The team suggests that these facilities may be expanded by adding more space and equipment. The team is happy to learn from the Director in Charge of IMACS that such an expansion is already under consideration. There is also a need for encouraging the use of Internet facility among the students who mostly come from villages.

The Career Guidance Cell need strengthening. The Cell should have separate accommodation and it should display on a continuous basis employment opportunities in Central and State Government Undertakings, Public Service Commissions, various sections of private enterprises and other agencies. In course of time a Competitive Examination Centre should also be developed within the Centre and necessary guidance and coaching may be offered on self-financing basis. These steps will also lead to strengthening of the Placement Cell.

The Department of Commerce has initiated steps in organizing a Commerce Lab to give Commerce students practical orientation. It is a positive step. However, the Peer team is of the view that it needs strengthening in terms of its contents.

The College has a large number of girls on its rolls. They need greater accommodation that what is presently available.

The Peer team is happy that some of the past students have formed an Alumni Association. In the course of interaction with the alumni and alumnae of the College the Peer team noted that several of them are willing to extend support in various developmental activities of the institution. The Peer team suggests that the College may take advantage of this and interact more frequently with the Association. Periodical interaction with the Parents of the students will also be useful for the College.

Higher education is undergoing fast changes. Their relevance to the students is under close scrutiny. It is desirable that the College in co-operation with its management prepares a Vision document stretching over a period of next five to seven years incorporating the strategies it would adopt to meet the challenges emerging out of the changing scenario in higher education.

The Peer Team places on record its appreciation to the institution for its cooperation during the visit.
