It is a registered society and works through the executive committee consisting of representatives of association, teachers, non-teaching staff and principal.

CRITERION - VII : HEALTHY PRACTICES
The college has put in place several healthy practices that have significant consequences on inculcating social responsibility in young students as much as on the overall ambience of the college. Some of the noteworthy practices are flagged below:
The Proctorial system has been evolved to enlist active participation of students in maintaining the discipline within the campus. In this process students imbibe in them disciplined behavior as well as a sense of belongingness.
The college has evolved a few ways to come to the aid of needy students. It assists the poor students by way of providing remission/concession, lending library books for a longer period and free supply of uniform even from personal funds. Furthermore, teachers in general seem to be attentive to the personal problems of distressed students. This practice compensates to a large extent the absence of any formal counseling cell.
The college has a grievance cell that addresses the genuine problems of students such as those arising from inconvenient time schedule or errors in examination matters.
The enforcement of dress code/ uniform in the college campus has arrested competitive wears among students that usually drive poor students to self pity.
The college encourages students to participate in various extra curricular activities such as yoga, judo, games and sports, NCC, NSS, ranger, debating and so on. It also encourages students to take part in inter collegiate and university level competition in some of these activities.
SECTION III: OVERALL ANALYSIS
This is the first accreditation for INMC that was set up in 1962. The college reminds the vision of its founder Ismail who started a school for women way back in 1909. The Peer Team after going through the Self Study Report (SSR) and visits made to various academic and physical facilities is satisfied by progress of the college in providing higher education to urban area and its surrounding area students. However, the peer team considers that there are some features of the college which it would like to commend. The peer team would also like to draw the attention of the college to certain concerns for its consideration. On the whole, INMC has several strengths:
It has an excellent student - teacher relationship as is evident from the feed back of different stake holders of the college such as students, alumni and parents.
The college has a harmonious academic environment which is highly conducive to the pursuit of higher education.
Most of the permanent teachers have Ph.D. degrees. Even among temporary teachers for the self financed courses, 18 have Ph.D. Degree.
On the basis of feedback form different stakeholders as also from the impression one gets, it appears that teachers have a great sense of involvement in the activities of the college.
Several teachers pursued research and published books and articles.
A couple of departments such as Drawings and Paintings and Music have attempted to modernize the teaching aids. The former has computer aided teaching of drawing and the later has electronic instruments. Other departments could also emulate and modernize teaching aids.
The college has tried to make the best use of limited physical space that it has. Having faced with the problem of space, the college has expanded vertically. It has a three storied building though it could not provide for a lift.
The college does not seem to have any record of indiscipline in its campus.
The college has NSS that has organized camps for promotion of social causes.
Its NCC cadets have participated in the Republic Day Parades several times.
Many of the students come from the neighboring villages.
Computerisation of library records is a good attempt.
Suggestions and Recommendations:
Having noted some of the major strengths of the college, the team has noticed the directions in which the college can progress further on its strengths:
The college can expand and diversify its courses from the existing traditional UG and PG courses, which are mostly traditional in nature. Brainstorming on the possible areas of expansion and introduction of reputed educationists in the governing body could be helpful in identifying the areas for future expansion and diversification.
The building constraint is due to physical space. If the college could have some more land, it could approach the UGC for fund under 12[B] for construction of building which the college has yet not explored.
The computer centre which the college has set up has only four machines could be strengthened with the help of UGC.
The college at present has very limited Internet access through a dial-up connection.
This could be expanded with the broad-band connectivity.
This would enable the students, particularly the research students to access e-journals and other resources available free online.
Common room for girls and canteen are housed in the small rooms, be provided with more space and facilities.
The exigencies have necessitated creating two classes of teachers with different scales for permanent and temporary teachers for self-finance courses. This could be a potential source of discontent among a section of teachers. In that eventuality, the present harmonious and congenial environment would alter adversely. It will therefore be appropriate to take measures such as creating an endowment fund to avoid such differences in the pay of permanent and temporary teachers.
To conclude, the college has come a long way in promotion of higher education amongst women in the region. It can accelerate its pace further; if it is equipped to cope with newer challenges and sees the opportunities that the globalization process has thrown open. Interaction with different stakeholders of the college clearly brings out a great sense of complacency on their part. There are valid reasons for it. But beyond a point, self complacency acts as a deterrent to perceiving the emerging challenges of higher education and preparing responses to them.
The Peer Team records its gratitude to the office bearers of the management, the Principal, the coordinator, the faculty members, non-teaching staff, the students and the alumni and parents for their courtesy and co-operation. The arrangement facilitated the peer team to complete the work smoothly in the fixed time frame. The peer team wishes the college bright future and success in its academic pursuit.
