An overall Analysis
The Peer team wishes to make the following recommendations, which could further enhance the stature of the institution as the temple of learning and skill development.
Regular meetings of parents and alumini association be conducted to get maximum benefit to the student community.
As the college is running several P.G. courses it should have more national and international journals relevant to respective subjects.
Law being a highly professional course be separated from the rest and should have a separate library with adequate number of journals.
The college should encourage students to appear in UGC/CSIR JRF (NET) examination.
Students as well as their parents stressed upon the need of starting job-oriented courses like MBA, MCA, LLM, Fashion designing etc. Administration should make serious efforts at appropriate levels to start the above courses.
As desired by parents and students college may also start coaching classes for the preparation of competitive examinations.
Though Dewas City is known for good number of industries the college has no apparent linkage with industry. For the benefit of the students such linkages should be encouraged.
The authorities are planning to construct a new auditorium on the existing basketball court. The committee, however, feels that an alternative site for basketball court be developed before construction of auditorium starts or the auditorium may be constructed in area beyond the area where basketball court is located.
There seems to be no health care facilities at present. The committee recommends a part time doctor who may make routine health check-ups.
The committee strongly feels that t/he teachers of the college should apply for both minor and major projects to various funding agencies like UGC, CSIR, DST, DAE, DBT, ICAR, ICSSR, and ICHR etc.
It will be beneficial to the community if the Dept. of Law starts a Legal Aids Cell and conducts Legal Aid Camps in rural areas as legal literacy may solve many problems of the rural masses.
While making appointments inbreeding should be avoided as for as possible.
Since most of the students are in their teens two staff members may be specifically deputed to have short term training on counseling and who may help in solving the emotional problems of the students.
The department of English badly needs a language laboratory, which may train students in spoken English.
College teachers appear to have done a lot of research and field studies etc. as a part of the students' thesis requirements. It will be nice if some of these works could see light of the day through publication in the form of books/manuscripts or at least research articles in referred journals.
The Peer Team would like to place on record its sense of gratefulness of Dr. S.L. Garg, Principal, the teaching and non-teaching staff, the students, the parents, the Alumni and others associated with the College for their remarkable hospitality and courtesy. The committee also wishes to express its appreciation for the superb team spirit observed in teachers, students and other employees among the members of each group and across the group. The Peer Team wishes that in the coming years the college would be able to march ahead towards promoting the cause of higher education and thereby striving for the fulfillment of its aims and objectives.
