About the Institution


Tarikere is a taluk in Chickamagaluru district in the state of Karnataka.
The town has derived its name from a number of water tanks by which the
town is surrounded (large water tank). This region is known for its natural,
religious and cultural aspects. An 800 year old Amrutheshwara temple, a
marvel of sculpture, is in the vicinity of Tarikere town. Moreover the
Kemmannugundi, the hill station situated at a height of 3000 ft. at sea level,
with its enchanting natural beauty beckons the tourists from all over
Karnataka. There is a pilgrim center called Dattapeetha, the Dattathreya
Maharshi believed to have made Thapas in that place. Tarikere is also well
connected by train and bus route from the entire state. The region has been
famous for areca nut cultivation. Bhadra Dam, situated in this area,
constructed across Bhadra river is a lifeline for the farmers of this area.
S.J.M. College which was established in 1980 by S.J.M. Vidyapeetha,
Chitradurga fulfills the higher educational aspirations of the people of this
area since its inception. The college has got affiliated to Kuvempu University
with permanent affiliation and falls under the 2(f) and 12(B) category of UGC
act 1956. The institution was accredited with B grade in 2007 and now is
volunteering for the second cycle, re-accreditation submitting its RAR 2015
which is a landmark and we faithfully confirm to the NAAC guidelines. Firstly
the college since its conception has been committed to the quality of
education and caters to the needs and serves the interest of the people of
this

area.

On

the

other

hand

the

college

realizes

that

skill

and

knowledgeable persons are required to build a strong nation. Therefore the


college strives towards achieving this and makes efforts to create such a
human resource by massively involving the faculty with a number of student
enrichment programmes. The college has also made its sincere attempts to
create an environment with ICT for an effective teaching, learning to equip
students with knowledge and skills. Finally the college also prides itself for
having created a cordial and mutual supportive relationship with all the
stakeholders.

S.J.M. College, Tarikere.

NAAC Self Study Report 2014-15

The college is located in heart of the town with 6.5 acres of land and
easily accessible to all. The necessary infrastructure has been created with

SWOC ANALYSIS
The institution strongly believes in the concept of self audit and
sincerely makes self assessment for our own advantage and further
improvement.

Strength of the College


As the college is located in the heart of the town with a sprawling 6.5
acres of land there is an ample scope for both vertical and horizontal
growth.
Our college which was established in the year 1980 has got a good
reputation in the entire Tarikere town and Taluk.
It is a secure place for womens education and hence more number of
girl students seeks admission to our college.
The college has got adequate infrastructure with all modern facilities
and ICT facility for teaching learning and evaluation process.
Fully automated library, smart classrooms, well-equipped conference
halls, gymnasium and womens hostel add a greater strength for
carrying all the academic activities in an effective way.
The campus has been under CCTV surveillance
A separate ladies room with all the amenities is provided
A 25KV Generator installed to avoid power interruption

Weaknesses
Lack of permanent faculty in full strength forces us to rely more upon
the guest faculty.
Lack of communication skills among students in general and lack of
communication skills in English particularly affect the employability of
the students.

11

S.J.M. College, Tarikere.

NAAC Self Study Report 2014-15

More than 20% students take up small independent part time jobs due
to economic reasons while during their degree course. Therefore they
cant concentrate more on their studies.

Opportunities
The campus has spread in about 6.5 acres land and it throws a lot of
opportunities for us to expand infrastructure facilities to meet the
demands of the people of this area with
Construction of indoor stadium
Construction of boys hostel
Starting of new courses including the PG studies to meet the
demands of the people of this area.

Challenges
The institution has started facing new challenges, since the opening of
the Govt. First Grade College in this town as there is tough competition to
woo students to our college. On the other hand, there has been a general
apathy now-a-days to the B.A. Course in society as it is not so much sought
of course. Moreover there has been a gradual decline in admissions to B.A.
Course quite for some time as there isnt much demand in the job market for
B.A. graduates. Therefore to meet this challenge we have been conducting
various programmes like skill development activities, improvement of
communication skills both in Kannada and English personality development
and computer skills, literary skills, etc., to enhance their employability.
