Dr. Sam Higginbottom
(1874 - 1958)
Founder

Visionaries:
The Sam Higginbotom Institute of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences formerly Allahabad Agricultural Institute was established under the leadership of Dr. Sam Higginbottom, in 1910, as an ecumenical Institution of the Christian Churches and Church organizations in India. Dr. Sam Higginbottom came to India in 1903 and joined the North India Mission of the Presbyterian Church. From 1903 to 1909. He taught Economics and Science in the Allahabad Christian College, presently known as Ewing Christian College and at the same time studied the local dialect.

During this period he became a familiar figure in the surrounding villages, he also saw and observed the living conditions of the villagers and was deeply concerned about the ancient system of agriculture which contributed to low productivity and thus led to extreme poverty amongst them. He was also genuinely disturbed by the vast gulf between the urban Christian and the rural masses.

For several months he contemplated upon the Christian neglect of the villages and ultimately by the end of 1909 he decided to bridge this gulf by establishing an agricultural school, which he envisioned would educate the village boys, introduce improved agricultural methods and co-operate with the local farmers in solving their practical agriculture related problems. He also took over the responsibility of supervising a Home for lepers. This Home was operated by the Allahabad Charitable Association,but since the Home did not have adequate facilities for providing food, clothing and shelter, the lepers often left and wandered into the city as beggars.

Here they were outright shunned and hideously disregarded by one and all. Dr. Higginbottom himself found them repulsive as most of them had lost their fingers and toes, their wounds were wrapped in dung coloured rags. Dr. Sam Higginbottom was so disturbed by the sight that within a few weeks he asked to be relieved of this responsibility, but Mr. Arthur Henry Ewing, the Principal of Allahabad Christian College, encouraged him to continue this work. He then realized that his attitude was inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible, which taught to cleanse lepers, the young missionary acknowledged that they were indeed his brothers in Christ. This made him look for possibilities of increasing the financial assistance for a proper home for lepers and thus came into being, the present Leprosy Hospital in Naini, situated across the Jamuna river about 1.5 kilometers South East of the city. The home consisted of a small hospital and Church and a Home for the untainted children of the lepers. This home was the project of Ethelind Higginbottom wife of Dr. Sam Higginbottom, since she felt that children who were separated within the first year of their birth from their parents would not contact this disease. This home was adjacent to the Naini Jail where the superintendent Col. E. Hudson, introduced improved agricultural techniques on the jail farm.

Dr. Higginbottom seized upon Hudson's methods of farming and taught these methods to the lepers who were able to farm. The evolution of an agricultural school was much more complex. Dr. Sam Higginbottom wished to establish a school that would train young men to work in villages as well as do research in practical agricultural problems of the villagers. His experiences as a teacher, his studies about India and his association with Col. Hudson helped him to develop this school.

During his teaching of Economics, he observed that the course was rather unrelated to the needs of the Indian students. The books were based on the knowledge of western, urbanized society, which here was meaningless for the Indian students. The lack of comprehension and the impracticality of the course deeply disturbed Dr. Higginbottom. He then decided to aquaint his students to the Indian Economy. He gave his students a practical demonstration by taking them to take a view of the life style of the villagers, personally. He showed the students Col. Hudson's farm at the, Naini Jail, so they would have a first hand information regarding the possibilities of improved agricultural methods and teaching of practical village industries such as wood carving, pottery, rug making, canning, etc. Dr. Higginbottom, thus planned and started a school which was located in the trans-Jamuna region on the southern bank of the river, directly across the Allahabad Christian College Campus. This region was connected to the city of Allahabad by a two tiered wooden bridge which spanned across the Jamuna and had a double rail line on the top and a dirt road underneath, about 1/2 a kilometer in the south west direction from this bridge the Agricultural Institute was established in the year 1910. About 120 Kilometers down this road was the Estate of Rewa.

This region was one of the poorest regions of this area, the soil was of a very poor quality (Usar), it was barren and had not been cultivated for years, Dr. Higginbottom took advantage of this opportunity and along with his associates reclaimed the area and demonstrated the potential value of Usar and felt that the riots would be inspired to adopt the practices of the Agricultural School. He had to his advantage the fact that this school was situated on the confluence of the Ganga - Jamuna, (known as 'Sangam'), where every year in the months of January and February, thousands of pilgrims passed this way and thus they would be able to observe and practically see the improved methods of agriculture which were implemented on the farm and in return would carry
these ideas with them to the various parts of country from where they had come.The first phase of the Institute was it's establishment, development of appropriate training courses and training programmes. Informal classes began in the fall of 1912 and it was during this period from 1912 to 1919 that the Institute faced a time of uncertainty. The Dairy, Animal Husbandry and Agriculture Farm were developed. Diploma in Farm Machinery and Dairying were started in 1923, then a Degree in Agriculture in 1932, followed by a Degree in Agricultural Engineering in 1943. This became the pioneer Institute to offer Agricultural Engineering degree in the whole of Asia and the 4th in the whole world.

Prof. Mason Vaugh, an Agricultural Engineer, founded the Department of Agricultural Engineering, he became the father of Agriculture Engineering in India in the early forties. Several implements such as Mould Board Ploughs (Wah Wah Plough, U.P. No.1, U.P. No.2, Shabash Plough) hoes, cultivators and wheat thresher were, for the first time introduced in India, by Prof. Vaugh. The next phase of the Institute was taken up by Dr. A.T. Mosher, in the year 1948-49, and the major expansion such as the construction of the College of Agriculture, New Hostel and many residences took place during this period. The most famous agriculture Extension Project 'Jamuna Par Punar yojna', in which the 'Gaon Saathi', (recruitment of village level workers) was introduced into the extension system for the first time in India. The first planners of our country took the idea of the 'Village Level Worker' as a community development model. This has now been adopted by eleven countries of the world. On the 25th of Aug. 1950, the A.A.I. was registered to function as a Christian Educational Institute of a national stature.

Dr. J.B. Chitamber, a famous extension scientist, took over the reigns of the Institute. Major academic expansion took place during this period i.e. from 1950 till 1980. Dr. Chitamber who had worked very closely with Dr. A. T. Mosher, led the Institute successfully and made extension a very well known programme of the Institute. The State Govt. of U .P. had certified that the Allahabad Agriculture Institute is a Minority Educational Institution within the meaning of clause (i) of article 30 of the Constitution of India, vide their letter No. 4894 15-80 (ii) dated the 12th of Sept. 1980 and also certified as a Minority Institution by the U.P. Higher Education Service Commission, vide letter No. 250/ 258/83-84 dated 24/5/1983. From the year 1980-1995.

In October 1947 the Institute was brought under an independent Board of Directors, which was
sponsored as an ecumenical body by a number of Churches and Christian Missions called The Board of Directors. the Institute faced financial and administrative crisis the worst in it's history and suffered the severest bankruptcy, due to which land had to be sold for disbursement of salaries, as employees were not paid for nearly 10 to 12 months. All fixed deposits dried out. However, through the prayer of believers and by the grace of the Lord JesusChrist, as the people started realizing the vision of the founders, the spirit of the Lord once again started working in the Institute and by the end of the year 1996 the Institute survived and came out of this crisis.

In order to obtain more academic freedom and to strengthen the specialized programmes of Teaching, Research and Extension a proposal was submitted to the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India by the Director, Dr. Rajendra B. Lal on the 31st of August 1994, that the Institute be granted the status of a Deemed University. In 1997 a team of experts from ICAR and UGC visited the Institute and gave their recommendation that the Institute be declared as a Deemed University, as it had all the potentials of a University. On the 15th of March 2000, Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi, Hon'ble Minister of HRD, Govt. of India, gave his approval to the recommendations of the UGC. The Central Government issued the notification No. F-9-26/94-U.3. dated the 15th of March 2000, declaring the Sam Higginbotom Institute of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences formerly Allahabad Agricultural Institute-as Deemed University and Prof. (Dr.) Rajendra B. Lal, was appointed as the first Vice-Chancellor of the University. After the end of Five years, AAI-DU was evaluated by NAAC (An autonomous body of UGC) in the month of January, 2005.

Khan as a member of the peer team for assessment and accreditation of Allahabad Agricultural Institute-Deemed University visited the Department on 17th, 18th& 19th January, 2005. The members analyzed the SAR submitted by DOE. During the period, the members visited various units and support services of DOE and also interacted with the faculty, the students, the alumni, the parents and non-teaching staff. Two practice-teaching schools namely YMCA Centenary School and Mary Wanamaker Girls Inter College were visited. A spirit of cooperative school and cooperative teachers was very much visible in both the schools.

On the basis of the information made available and inputs generated through interaction with stakeholdergroups, the members analyzed the functioning and performance of Department in terms of its strengths and areas of concern, criterion wise, which is given in Section II, while overall analysis and suggestions are given in Section III.

Section II: Criterion wise Analysis
Criterion 1: Curricular Design and Planning
The DOE selects its students through entrance tests. 2002-2003 session had 240 working days with 180 teaching days, 30 pre-practice preparation days and 30 practice teaching days. These periods are according to NCTE norms. 8 schools are taken for practice teaching organization. 20 lessons in each of the two teaching subjects are delivered by the student teachers. There is provision for assessing students' knowledge and skills after admission, but no remedial courses are provided to the educationally disadvantaged students, however, for advanced learners, project work is assigned.

The faculty participates in development of the curriculum through Board of Studies. The syllabus comprises of four parts: Theory---6 Theory papers& one Elective paper, Psychology Practical, Practice Teaching and CCA, School Experience ,Community Service & Work Experience. There is flexibility within the programme in choosing teaching subjects/Elective. There are 12 teaching subjects by six subject specialists?

The motto of the University is 'Serve the land, feed the hungry' with the vision of Gospel and Plough. To educate the masses the Departments' motto is 'Practice what you preach'. These missions are reflected in all the activities undertaken by the Dept. There is no formal mechanism to obtain feedback from the Heads of practicing schools, academic peers and employers on the teaching programme, so as to review the existing curriculum. DOE organizes developmental work in the community in a planned way through development of roads, cleaning vicinity and educational premises. Important aspects of Curriculum Design may be relooked into. There is no mechanism to ensure that DOE activities its specific goals and objectives.

Criterion 2: Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation
DOE develops its calendar every year. The present session started on 9th August 2004, the last working day being 31st May 2005. For promoting interactive teaching and learning, some efforts have been made. Only teacher made audio-visual aids are used. As for academic calendar, teaching schedule is prepared with inputs like training in preparation of lesson plans, demonstration lessons, simulated teaching and preparation of teaching aid Pedagogic content analysis of teaching subject is not taken up. Evaluation methods are communicated to students at the beginning of the year.

The faculty of DOE has not attended any Seminar/Workshop so far. For teacher- performance appraisal, assessment of teacher is made by the students with inputs provided in the performa developed by DOE. There is also Academic Audit Board at the University level, the assessment made on the basis of audit materials. DOE has not organized Seminars, Workshop etc. for either faculty development or school teachers.

'Practice what you preach' is the motto of DOE. Morning devotions, Regular education based on Biblical Teaching of Lord Jesus Christ etc. are some of the practices adopted for inculcation of values. Environment of the DOE with its curricular and co-curricular activities help in development of all round development of the students' personality. Through frequent interaction and social activities like literacy programmes, awareness programmes, DOE tries to bring in community orientation in its functioning. Efforts are being made for developing self-learning, communication skills, teamwork etc. DOE utilizes ICT facilities of the University. It needs to formulate a clear policy and strategies for developing student teachers' competencies and skills for the use of learner-centred pedagogy and inclusive education.

Being a Department of Deemed University, DOE follows its own evaluation scheme. In all Theory papers except Elective Paper, weightage for mid-term examination is 25% and 75% for End-term examination. For Elective Paper, mid-term examination has 40% weightage. Psychology Practical&Viva-voce is of 50 marks. Minimum marks for passing the examination are 36% in all the papers except in Elective Paper where it is 40% .Grading system (C to A+) is followed for activities: Attendance, CCA, School Experience, Community service, Work Experience, Computer education, educational exposure and educational tour. Both Theoretical background and practice in Computer Education is provided by Department of Computer Science & Technology of the University. Part-III of the curriculum is related to School Experience Programme, all the aspects covered under School Experience as an activity in Part-IV may be included in Part-III.

Criterion 3: Research Development and Extension
Research is a weak link in DOE programmes. There is need to motivate teachers to take up research/minor research projects in education. The faculty has few paper publications to their credit. Two members of the teaching staff attended two seminars each. The faculty may be encouraged to become members of professional bodies. Working with school and school teachers, adult education and literacy, education of the street and out-of-school children, organization of blood donation camp and medical camp, Aids awareness, social work, health & hygiene awareness are the main extension activities undertaken by D.O.E. Self-instructional material, print materials or Question Bank have not been developed by the Dept. There is scope for the DOE to reset its goals and redesign its action plan with reference to research development in the context of new challenges.

Criterion 4: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
DOE is presently running from a temporary building maintained by the University's Estate Division. It has planned to meet the need for augmenting the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth by utilizing other departments' facilities. Landscaping Unit of the University keeps the DOE campus beautiful and pollution free. The University is getting a new building constructed for DOE with all the infrastructural facilities as per NCTE norms. DOE is likely to be shifted to its new building in due course. There are only 1838 books available in the Central Library and Departmental Library. Departmental library is located in one small room with no librarian. Only two Journals are being subscribed. The Library does not have a photocopier and Internet facilities. The only computer available is being used for preparing documents only. Method lab, Psychology lab, Science Lab and ET lab are yet to be established with necessary equipments.

DOE has a main hall with 4 classrooms with suitable furniture. University's health services are utilized by the students, the faculty and non-teaching staff. University's physical and infrastructure facilities for sports and physical education are being utilized by DOE. The students participate in University organized games and sports. For SUPW/Work Experience, University labs are being utilized. University's boys and girls hostel facilities are available to DOE students who can also avail the facility of mess at moderate rates.

Criterion 5: Student Support and Progression
About 98% students appear in the qualifying examination after the minimum period of study. As per Heads estimate roughly 70% students get employment. Informal feedback obtained from ex-students is used for further improvement in functioning of DOE. It publishes the updated prospectus annually. Academic and personal counseling is provided by the staff-advisor, who develops personal rapport with the students. University's Placement Service and Career Counseling Department also looks after DOE students' placement.

DOE does not have its Alumni Association but DOE is in touch with its ex-students. While interacting with Alumni, the team was happy to note that the training provided has been quite useful to them in their job. There is House Representative System for students and Grievance Redressal Mechanism for staff and employees of the University as a whole. The policies and parameters of admission are clearly highlighted in the Prospectus for prospective students. University's admission policy with regard to foreign students is very clear and admissions to this category are made through coordinator, International Education Division. A few recreational/leisure time facilities are available to the students.

Criterion 6: Organization and Management
The academic calendar is prepared by the Board of studies. The decisions taken by the DOE are usually approved by the competent authority.

Teaching staff is recruited through a Selection Committee formed as per UGC Guidelines. DOE can appoint Guest faculty as per University rules. It did not conduct professional development programme for non-teaching staff. There are 60 seats on regular fee of Rs. 40,000 for each seat (30 sponsored & 30 General) and 40 seats on High fee of Rs. 75,000 for each seat (20 sponsored & 20 General). There have been changes in High fee during last three years. In stakeholder's opinion, the fee charge is on the higher side. DOE has an excess budget during last two years. University internal audit mechanism is there for internal auditing. University's grievance redressal cell deals with grievances of the employees of DOE.

There is provision for availing advances against salary. Endowment fund of Rs. 5 Lakhs has been deposited in SBI in a joint account with RD, NRC, and NCTE. Keeping a Reserve Fund is also a requirement to be fulfilled. Initiatives for undertaking twinning programmes and collaborations with regional and national agencies will open new vistas in the area of quality teacher education. No specific innovations have been undertaken by DOE.

Section III: Overall Analysis and Suggestions for Further Improvement
DOE, a newly established department running its 3rd academic session, is making efforts to be a centre of higher learning, skill acquisition ,value inculcation and training of body, mind and spirit, there by making its students more supple malleable and flexible forging ahead as socially responsible individuals and being sensitive about the priorities of the nation. With such goals, DOE is trying to realize the motto of its University 'Serve the Nation, feed the hungry and educate the masses'. The peer team appreciated such an approach and spirit of the administration and the faculty.

The peer team would like to put the following suggestions for consideration:
Efforts may be made to appoint qualified Head and Lecturers as per NCTE norms. Part-time teachers for Art, Work Experience, ICT may also be appointed.

There may be more involvement of the DOE in the process of conduct of the Entrance Test.

Interviews may also be conducted for selection of students.
