Introduction
The Bhopal School of Social Sciences, Bhopal, M.P. is affiliated to the Barkatullah University, Bhopal. It is a minority college, established by Catholic Diocese of Bhopal in the year 1972 by the efforts of Rev. Dr. Eugene D'Souza to cater to the then felt need of job-oriented curriculum with the initial focus on Social Service and entrepreneurship. Initially, it was affiliated to Bhopal University. The college started with B.A. (Hons.) in Social Work. The progressive trend of the institution can be seen in the gradual introduction of many degree, diploma and certificate programs related to Management, Commerce, Physical Education, Computers and Business and English language in the subsequent years. The college possesses a big campus of 20 acres with lush green trees and well maintained grounds. It has total student enrolment of 1578 in all its UG and PG Courses. Besides its regular principal, it has faculty strength of 46 regular and 4 part time teachers. The non-teaching staff includes 19 administrative and 4 technical staff.

The BSSS has UGC recognition under 2 (f) and 12(b) since 1972. It receives grant-in-aid from State Government as per its norms and procedures notified from time to time. Apart from the regular grant-in-aid, the college generates its funds by running many self-financing courses.

The Bhopal School of Social Sciences prepared its self-assessment report and offered to be assessed and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council in December, 2005. NAAC constituted a Peer Team with Prof K.C. Sharma, former Vice-Chancellor, Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati University, Ajmer (Rajasthan), as Chairman, Prof. J.P.Pachauri, Professor and Head Department of Sociology and Dean Faculty of Arts Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University, Srinagar-Garhwal (Uttranchal) as Member-Coordinator and Dr. Amrita Patel, Principal, Uma Arts and Nathiba Commerce Mahila College, Gandhinagar (Gujrat) as Member, to visit the college and validate the self-study report. Before the proposed visit, the copies of the Self-Assessment Report submitted by the college and the Peer Team documents prepared by the NAAC were made available to the members by Shri Ganesh Hegde, Assistant Advisor at NAAC.

Before visiting the college the Chairman of the Peer Team Prof. K.C. Sharma held an in-house meeting on 26th February, 2006 at 7.00 PM, at the place of stay of the team and discussed the modalities and procedure to be followed for validation of the report and evolved a consensus on the same.

The assessment of the institution under various criteria of NAAC and the commendable features of the institution along with the issues of concern, as they are identified by the team, are given herewith:

SECTION-II
Criterion -I - Curricular Aspects
The goals and objectives of the institution are well defined which aimed to impart the knowledge relevant to societal service and community development. The degree and diploma courses are planned accordingly by the affiliating university.

The college is a co-educational institution since its inception. It runs at present eleven UG and PG degree/diploma programs in five faculties, viz. Arts, Commerce, Management, Computers and Physical Education as well as five vocational courses of Business English and Computers. Out of these six programs were introduced during the last five years. BSSS has also a twinning program of MBA with Assumption University, Bangkok, Thailand. The programs offered here are job oriented in nature. The college offers such subjects as Psychology, Political Science, Social work, Economics, Management, Accounts, Taxation, English, Computers in addition to Environmental Studies as compulsory for the students of all third year degree students. The institution offers flexibility in learning programs relevant to society.

Three of the faculties of the college are the members of the Board of Studies of the Barkatullah University. By offering their suggestions on academic issues, they play a crucial role in bringing about suitable changes and updating of the syllabi periodically. The college is responsive to the academic growth of students and organizes seminars/conferences and workshops, inviting academically renowned persons to share their expertise and experiences among the students. They had conducted a seminar on Consumer Fora : from Consumer Satisfaction to Consumer Protection and a workshop for improving communication skills etc. Additionally, the students are exposed to field visits, group discussions, projects, remedial classes, guest lectures, writing of assignments and dissertations as a part of rigorous training.

The college has established linkages with industries and NGOs to organize field visits, demonstrations, practical work and on job training for the students of management, computers and social work departments.

Criterion - II Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The students are admitted through entrance examination and interviews in many programs of study. In some programs, the admissions are also done on the basis of academic record in the qualifying examination and for the specified number of seats in each class. BSSS also follows statutory reservation policy of the State Government in its admissions. The number of applicants are 4-5 times more than the specified seats in most of the programs.

The college publishes its prospectus to provide requisite information to students about admission procedure, availability of courses and seats, fee structure etc. A handbook containing general rules, code of conduct etc. is provided to the admitted students. Both semester and annual system of examinations are followed by the institution. The courses are taught as per mandate of the affiliating University, which also conducts its examinations. The teaching is mostly done in English through modern teaching aids like OHP, laptops and multimedia projectors.

The teachers unitize their syllabi and teaching with daily lesson plans of courses but plan their teaching schedule week-wise. The institution does not conduct any formal talent search in the beginning of the session. However, the teachers arrange regular remedial courses for the socially and academically disadvantaged students.

Out of total 240 students admitted in undergraduate non-self financing courses, 15 students are from other states, while out of total 1578 students in self-financing courses (UG, PG and Diploma courses). 84 students are from other states. The dropout rate is low ie. 66 out of 1476 students admitted in the institution for the year 2004-2005. Eligibility to take the final university examinations is linked to 75 % attendance in the classes. The faculty takes care of such requirements and ensures that this is adhered to. These conditions have been mentioned in the prospectus and those students who fall short of lectures and other eligibility conditions are informed with the information displayed on the notice board from time to time. Parents are also contacted and informed. Departmental meetings are held at the beginning of the academic session for unitization of syllabi and teaching workload distribution.

The BSSS promotes student-teacher interaction and communication for better teaching learning possibilities. This process includes seminars, group discussions, presentations, workshops, field visits, tutorials, guidance, interaction, feedback and monitoring of students progress. About 90% of classes are taught by full time faculty. The institution worked for 270 working days in the session 2005-2006 and conducts teaching for the required number of teaching as per UGC norms. The recruitment of teachers is done by the management of the institution under the rules and procedures laid down by the university, the state government and as per qualifications specified by the UGC. At present, there are 47 regular and 4 part-time faculty members in the institution. The institution has recruited 20 permanent lecturers during the last five years. However, the institution appoints teachers on contract basis as per requirements of subject teaching load specially for self-financing courses.

The students are evaluated through internal tests, which are notified in the college prospectus as well as it is displayed on the Notice Board at the appropriate time. The answer sheets (term-wise and assignments) are shown to the students so as to maintain transparency in evaluation. The students gain through this regular monitoring exercise along with home minor projects and assignments allotted by the teachers.

The advanced learners are motivated to prepare dissertations and participate in debates, discussions as well as in competitive events. The classroom lecture method is supplemented by encouraging students to write assignments, to participate in group discussions, quiz, field visits etc. The college has the facility to prepare audiovisual teaching aids. The value-based education rendered by the institution has been recognized widely. A variety of learner centered methods including Internet resources are used.

The faculty is permitted to attend Orientation and Refresher courses to update their information acquisition level and pedagogical inputs besides earning eligibility to earn selection grade. They are also encouraged to participate in national and international seminars/conferences/workshops. During the last two years, three teachers participated in national seminars, and the same number of teachers participated in international conferences. Some of them have received awards for presenting papers at national level seminars. Under the Faculty Development Program (training on innovative teaching skills, Bhopal Gas Tragedy, BEC ) many teachers were benefited during the last two years. Many teachers are the members of BOS of the university and of other bodies. The Principal, on the basis of their university results, participation in curricular activities and their institutional contribution, writes their ACRs. The BSSS has introduced the procedure of teachers' self appraisal and the outgoing students' feedback on a pilot scale so as to ensure that the teachers' accountability is visible and acts as a primitives factor in the entire teaching learning process for improvement of academic standards and quality education.

Criterion - III- Research, Consultancy and Extension
The teaching in higher education must be research oriented. But limited resources and infrastructure can not yield qualitative research in institutions offering Under Graduate and Post Graduate degrees. It is noteworthy that three of the faculty members were awarded Ph.D. degree in their respective subjects during the last five years. Some teachers have published their research in journals of national and international repute. There is no financial support for the teachers working for their Ph.D. degree, but they are sanctioned study leave for the purpose.

A research project worth Rs.1,50,000/- on Childline sanctioned by the Ministry of Social Justice is being run by the institution.

The students are encouraged for expression of their creativity and literary writing skills through the publication of an annual magazine. The social activities performed by the students during the year are well depicted in the magazine. The institution has developed the programs to impart the value education to students.
