EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Arts, Commerce and Science College, Hupari is established in 1991 by
one of the leading educational institutions in western Maharashtra, Rayat
Shikshan Sanstha, Satara. The institution itself was founded by Padmabhushan
Dr. Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil way back in 1919. It is a grant in aid college
affiliated to Shivaji University, Kolhapur. It has been accredited by NAAC at
B grade in February 2004.
I
Curricular Aspects –
The goals and the mission of the college are to provide quality
educational facilities to socio-economically deprived, downtrodden and
backward classes of the society. The goals and the mission of the college are
in keeping with those of the parent institute. The college offers a fairly wide
range of programme options under Arts and Commerce streams including post
graduation facility in Commerce stream. The college also provides eight selffinanced career –oriented and need based short term courses in order to equip
the students with a few basic skills along with their conventional education.
Since the college is an affiliated one its academic flexibility is
regulated by the norms of the affiliating university.
A few members of our faculty are associated with curriculum design.
Prin. Dr. T. S. Patil and Prof. Dr. V. A. Mane have been elected unopposed as
Members of Board of Studies in History and Accountancy respectively. Prin.
Dr. T. S. Patil has been elected as a member of the faculty of Social Sciences
as well as a member of the Academic Council of the Shivaji University,
Kolhapur. The rest of the faculty members attend seminars and workshops on
revised syllabus of their respective subjects and make useful suggestions. It is
a matter of pride that the Principal of the college Dr. T. S. Patil is elected
President of Maharashtra Itihas Parishad. He was formerly a member of
Senate of the Shivaji University. During the last five years 41 faculty have
participated in seminars and workshops related to curricular aspects. Besides,
a few faculty members have designed curriculum for short-term courses which
are approved by the concerned department of the university.
II
Teaching, Learning and Evaluation :
Admission to various courses are given according to the
University/Government rules. An attempt is made to admit all eligible and
desirous students in the college. Diagnostic tests are conducted to detect the
weaker students and students thus identified are provided with remedial
coaching. Although conventional classroom lecture method is predominantly
practiced, use of the new audio-visual aids like L. C. D., charts, maps is on the
rise. The college monitors the overall progress of the students through internal
Exams, departmental seminars, study tours, guest lectures. The college has
SELF-STUDY REPORT (RE-ACCREDITATION REPORT)
Arts, Commerce and Science College, Hupari, Tal. Hatkanangale, Dist. Kolhapur (Maharashtra) PIN 416 203 .
organized 15 workshops and orientation programmes in the last 5 years in
spite of the lack of a separate college building. Similarly our faculty and our
students have attended 11 programmes in order to update their knowledge.
Members of the teaching faculty prepare year plans, daily lecture notes
and provide the students with list of reference books. The faculty members are
keen on improving their professional qualification and updating their
knowledge.
III
Research, Consultancy and Extension :
The college has constituted a Research Committee to facilitate and
monitor research activities and to develop research culture in the college. Until
recently the college was not included in the UGC list of 2(f) and 12 (B) and
hence the teaching faculty could not be deputed for research. However, the
faculty members pursued research on their own. Now, a faculty member is
deputed for Ph. D. under FIP. The principal of the college has guided and has
been guiding M. Phil. and Ph. D. students. One faculty member who was
working on a minor research project is recently transferred to another unit of
the parent institute. In all, 58% faculty have research orientation. Students of
the college also busy themselves on project works on Environmental concerns,
Geography and Journalism.
The college offered consultancy services to the neighborhood
community in the areas of their daily concerns. The consultancy services were
offered free of cost.
This college has undertaken remarkable extension activities and
outreach programmes through NSS, „College at Your Doorstep‟ scheme,
Vivek Vahini, Jal Swarajya, Granth Charcha in collaboration with the local
organizations. Recently, the college has undertaken a literacy project entitled,
“Aajeevan Adhyayana Prakriya” (Life long Learning Process) at Talandage.
IV
Infrastructure and Learning Resources :
Until recently the college was housed in a high school of the parent
institute. Now the college has constructed its own building worth Rs. 1 crore.
The campus area of the new building is 3 acres while the built up area is
1618.68 sq. m. The master plan of the new building is visionary and
comprehensive. The college wishes to furnish the new building with necessary
equipments and instruments. The worth noting point about this building is that
the entire construction is carried out through donations of our alumni and help
from the parent institute. No financial help from the government or the UGC
has been received yet for the development of the infrastructure. Efforts are
made to update the computer facility and enrich the college library. The
college has received a formal sanction for its proposal for construction of
Women‟s Hostel from the UGC and the construction is in process.
V
Student Support and Progression :
The college provided all possible support to the poor, needy students.
During the last five years the college has disbursed financial help of Rs.
10810/- through student welfare fund to the needy students. The college has
introduced eight need – based career – oriented short – term courses with a
64
SELF-STUDY REPORT (RE-ACCREDITATION REPORT)
Arts, Commerce and Science College, Hupari, Tal. Hatkanangale, Dist. .Kolhapur (MAHARASHTRA) PIN. 416 203
view to developing the students‟ employability. The Alumni Association of
the college has a lion‟s share in collecting funds for the ongoing construction
of the college building. The college encourages the students to take part in
extra curricular activities such as sports and cultural programmes.
The college annual magazine provides a platform for potential creative
writers. The college magazine has won the state level, university level and
institute level awards for the quality writings.
VI
Governance and Leadership :
The college plans its academic and developmental programmes
carefully taking into account the local needs and executes them with the active
involvement of the management and the students community. The „Open
Door‟ policy of the principal drives away all inhibitions from the minds of the
students. The organizational structure of the college and also of the parent
institute ensures decentralization of power and responsibility. The IQAC in the
college plays a vital role in bringing about coordination and maintaining
harmony among different departments and individuals. Students, their parents
and all other stakeholders are taken into confidence in important policy
decisions. Feedback from students helps the teachers to introspect and
improve in the future.
The parent institute Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, is the real guiding star
and a source of inspiration and encouragement for all developmental
programmes undertaken by the college.
VII
Innovative Practices :
The best practices such as Dattak Palak Yojana (i. e. Students
Adoption Scheme), Vivek Vahini, Study Circle, Awareness Programmes, Staff
Academy, and an oath taken by students from the Preamble of the Constitution
on 9th August every year help enhancing and sustaining quality and value
education in the college. The cultural programmes are invariably based on
patriotic themes. The programmes organized by the college aim at promoting
values such as nationality, national thinking, secularism and good citizenship.
The college complied with almost every recommendation made in the
previous assessment report.

communicated to the students, teachers, staff and other
stakeholders?
Name of the Institute : Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, Satara
Motto : „Education through self-help‟
- Karmaveer
The Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, founded by Padmabhushan Dr.
Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil in 1919, is one of the leading educational
institutions in Asia. The value of its contribution to education in
general is enormous , as it has, from the very beginning, tried all its
best to lay emphasis on the education of the downtrodden, the poor and
ignorant that really forms the major bulk of society. Late Dr.
Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil was man of masses who devoted all his mind
and heart to the cause of their education. He had thorough
understanding of the social ills that beset the times and had fully
realized the dire need of the spread of education. He believed that
education alone could eradicate illiteracy, untouchability, castehierarchy, money lending, superstitions, social and economic
inequality. All his life he tried to translate this belief into reality. He
was the prophet of the poor, the weak, the dispossessed and left no
stone unturned for their upliftment. Such a renowned person has
established this educational institution with the following mission :
*
To provide educational facilities to the students of downtrodden,
deprived and backward classes of the society.
To prepare the students for further higher education.
To promote education and enable the students to accept the challenges
of the new era.
To develop over all personality of students.
To inculcate values of social equality, feeling of brotherhood and selfhelp.

9) Value based activies and programmes.
10) Introducing career oriented courses and programmes.

1.1.2. How does the mission statement reflect the institution‟s distinctive
characteristics in terms of addressing the needs of the society, the
students it seeks to serve, institution‟s traditions and value
orientation?
The distinctive feature of our parent institute is providing
education for deprived and disadvantaged masses. Hence the units of
the institute are mainly located in rural, hilly, tribal and slum areas.
This college is located in a village and caters to the needs of students
coming from low income groups, farmer and wage earner
communities.
We have very few paying students. The rest of them are from
low income groups and have to support their families by either sharing
the labours of their parents or by doing some part-time job. The silver
industry in Hupari & power-loom industry in Rendal provide them
with part-time jobs.
Another distinctive feature of Rayat Shikshan Sanstha has been
its golden principle, “Earn and Learn Scheme” which highlights the
value of dignity of labour. The students of this college are provided
with part-time job opportunities in the local silver & powerloom
industry and after graduation they turn to self-employment by
continuing in the same industry.
Are the academic programmes in line with the institution‟s goals
and objectives? If yes, give details on how the curricula developed/
adopted, address the needs of the society and have relevance to the
regional/national and global trends and developmental needs?
(access to the Disadvantaged, Equity, Self development,
Community and National Development, Ecology and environment,
Value orientation, Employment, ICT introduction, Global and
National demands and so on)
The academic programmes are in tune with the goals and
objectives of the institution. The programmes are supplemented with
activities that aim at national and global trends and developmental
needs which include :

Best Practices in Research, Consultancy and Extension
What are the significant innovations / good practices in Research,
Consultancy and Extension activities of the institution?
Until recently the college did not have the UGC recognition.
However, the college administration encouraged the faculty to pursue
research as a part-time researcher as the Shivaji University is in the
vicinity of the college. The college received UGC recognition in
January, 2008 and ever since the faculty is being encouraged to
forward proposals under FIP of the UGC. Prof. Smt. S. C. Khole is
deputed for her Ph. D. in History.
Three faculty members have forwarded their proposals for
Minor Research Projects to the UGC.
Another noteworthy activity of the college is its Vivek Vahini
inspired by the former chairperson of the Rayat Shikshan Sanstha,
Satara and renowned educationist Dr. N. D. Patil. It is through the
activities of the Vahini that the college tries to eradicate blind beliefs
and develop scientific attitude among the students and the community.
