BACKGROUND OF THE MANAGEMENT


The Jagadguru shree Veerasimhaasana Math established in the 11th Century at
Suttur by Adi Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara Shivayogi Mahaswamiji has been
making remarkable contribution in religious, social, educational and economic spheres in
the state and across the country. It is striving for social development by responding to the
community needs. It strongly believes that unless the problems of the socially backward
communities and the poor are solved, there cannot be any social development. With this
objective, it has taken up several development initiatives, at the same time living up to its
principle of ‘Work is worship’ and is engaged in raising public awareness on issues of
social concern.

JSS Mahavidyapeetha, parent institution of the college, an institution of


international acclaim, was founded in 1954 by His Holiness Jagadguru Dr. Shri
Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji for the welfare of the society, poor and
downtrodden in particular, through multifaceted social service activities with emphasis on
education. Under the untiring efforts of Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra Mahaswamiji, the
Vidyapeetha has witnessed enormous growth in the field of education. Registered under
Societies’ Registration Act 1960, vide: Reg. No. 12/1962 on 17-07-1962. The JSS
Mahadyapeetha provides education from Kindergarten to Post Graduation leading to
research, extension and societal development.

Another important aspect that worth mentioning here is that instead of making
students come to cities seeking education Jagadguru Dr. Sri Shivarathri Rajendra
Swamiji thought of starting educational institutions in rural areas, which resulted in
the establishment of JSS College in Chamarajanagar, a semi-urban, border area.

JSS Mahavidyapeetha has made significant contribution in the field of higher


education in the sectors of Collegiate Education, Humanities, Science, Commerce,
Technical education, Law, Management, Health Sciences (medical, pharmacy, nursing,
dental, paramedical sciences, ayurvedic medicine and naturopathy) and so on. It also
has a unique institution of Speech and Hearing. Emphasis has also been given to
vocational education through polytechnics and ITIs. Apart from formal and vocational
training, a training institute for Civil Services Examinations and Jana Shikshana
Samsthana (Skill training centre) have also been established as the Mahavidyapeetha has
realized the need for continuing education. It is involved in a number of community and

JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571 313


NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

rural development activities through its well structured extension wings like Krishi
Vignana Kendra, Old age homes, Spiritual forums, Rehabilitation centres and Hostels. It
is also running free schools for poor children of Karnataka and other states with free
boarding and accommodation.

The JSS Mahavidyapeetha has been providing health care facilities through its
1800 bed hospital with super specialties in Mysore. This hospital is being used as a
teaching hospital for students from the JSS Medical College. Realising the potential,
UGC has conferred University status to Medical College under health sciences (medical,
dental and pharmacy) and private university status to their technical and science
institutions.

As part of its social service commitments, the JSS Medical service trust is
providing good medical services for rural population through its primary health centres at
villages. JSS Mahavidyapeetha has expanded its jurisdiction by establishing and
registering another Mahavidyapeetha at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh. Through this, it is
running an engineering college and a public school in Noida (UP). It is worth mentioning
here about the educational institutions established abroad - JSS Academy, Mauritius
(Engineering College) and the International Central School JSS Academy, Dubai.

In Suttur, around 4,000 underprivileged children from across the state and the
country as well are receiving free primary and high school education with free boarding
and lodging facilities. This project, which reaches out to children without any
discrimination of caste and religion, is highly lauded by the public.

The JSS Krishi Vignana Kendra (Agricultural Sciences Centre) was


established in Suttur in 1994 to improve the economic conditions of farmers in the field
of agriculture, animal husbandry and rural development. The centre offers training,
transfer of technology, material assistance and holds demonstrations and
exhibitions in order to educate the farmers in modern agricultural methods.

With the objective of giving good quality education, public schools with
CBSC Syllabus are established. This includes the residential school at Ooty in Tamilnadu
that has the best facilities.

The JSS Mahavidyapeetha has also started a polytechnic for the differently
abled with the aim of empowering them to have self employment and lead a good life.
JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571 313
NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

For the first time in the country, such a polytechnic was started with grant-in-aid from the
World Bank. The students are being trained in several subjects. A hostel for differently
abled working women and girl students is also being run by the management.

Under the umbrella of JSS Mahavidyapeetha, a number of organisations have


been registered to render service in several fields. Through its more than 300 institutions
it is striving for the all-round development of the society namely; cultural and
religious, health and social welfare sectors. They are:

1. JSS Medical Service Trust, Mysore


2. JSS Mahavidyapeetha, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh
3. Sri Shivarathreeshwara Rural Development Foundation, Mysore
4. JSS Consultancy Trust, Mysore
5. JSS Janashikshana Samsthans, Mysore and Bangalore

11. Sahukar B. Subbanna Charitable Trust, Mysore
12. Kyatanahalli Siddalingaiah Samskritha Paatashale and Free Hostel Trust, Mysore
13. JSS Body Donation Organization

The JSS Mahavidyapeetha has been undertaking public welfare programmes in various
fields that help in the holistic development of the society. The publication division not only
sponsors priceless books, but is also involved in religious publicity activities.

Under the leadership of the present pontiff, the 24th Peethadhyaksha, Sri Shivarathri
Deshikendra Mahaswamiji, the Mahavidyapeetha has not only established educational
institutions in places where necessary, it has also made sure that all these institutions impart
quality education. Engineering, medicine, dental sciences and law colleges run by JSS
Mahavidyapeeta are reputed to be the best educational institutions of their kind in
the state and have also become autonomous. His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri
Deshikendra Mahaswamiji is the guide and mentor of all the activities of JSS
Mahavidyapeetha as its president and patron. More than 6500 employees are at the service of
all the stakeholders of the society.

Divine blessings and guidance of patron and dedicated faculty ably assisted by
supporting staff are serving the stakeholders of the society especially students leading to
national development and socio economic change. A young child who joins a JSS
institution seeking education may go on to become a scientist, or an engineer, or a
technologist, or a doctor, or a philosopher. Jagadguru Sri Shivarathreeshwara
Mahavidyapeetha thus has all the facilities that shape the youngster into a good citizen of the
country.

creating awareness on inclusive policy in education. The college adopts transparent policy in
admission for providing equity to all types of students. Most of the students hail from socio-
economically deprived background and access to higher education is very limited. Hence the
institution provides facilities to girl students that ensure safety and instil confidence in them.

such performance / achievement of the faculty.

None of the faculties have so far received any awards for teaching at state / national
level.

2.4.6 Has the institution introduced evaluation of teachers by the students and
external Peers? If ‘yes’, how is the evaluation used for improving the quality of
the teaching-learning process?
Yes. Both formal and informal evaluation of teachers is done by students,
alumni and opinion on teaching–learning is gathered from parents through specific
formats, questions that elicit information on the knowledge base, communication
skills and creativity of teachers, innovative methods of teaching.
 The Principal also gets an oral feedback on teachers from students.
 IQAC has played instrumental role in verifying the teacher’s performance through
PBAS/API as per UGC regulations 2010 and amendments thereafter.
 After analyzing the Annual Appraisal Reports of the teachers, IQAC has made special
suggestions for improvements in participatory teaching and creation of teaching
modules.
These feedbacks will help in faculty assessment. Shortcomings of the teachers, if any, are
rectified through counseling.

2.5 Evaluation Process and Reforms:


2.5.1 How does the institution ensure that the stakeholders of the institution especially
students and faculty are aware of the evaluation processes?
All intimations sent by the University in connection with evaluation such as
academic calendar, question paper patterns, internal assessment procedure, time table
for examinations are communicated to the teachers by the Principal.

JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571313 61


NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

 The teachers in turn inform the students giving them the details of the evaluation
process during the student Induction and Orientation programme as well as in the
classrooms at the beginning of each semester.

 The college office regularly displays circulars regarding verification, last date to
pay fee and revaluation for University examination.

 Students are informed about the mode of examination, pattern of question paper,
method of evaluation in the prevailing examination system during the course of
study. Model question papers are discussed in detail.

 The scheme of evaluation obtained by teachers during previous university


valuations is discussed in the class.

 Most of the teachers are in the BOE panel of examiners and hence are involved in
the university paper evaluation. This allows them to critically understand the
process and pass on this information to the students.

 Senior faculties who are in the BOS inform their staff about any changes in the
process as and when it happens.

2.5.2. What are the major evaluation reforms of the university that the institution has
adopted and what are the reforms initiated by the institution on its own?
a. Introduction of internal assessment is a major reform that came into practice
with the semester system.
b. There is a continuous evaluation process in the form of written, class seminars,
assignments, open book test, group discussion, project work and viva voce.
c. To promote transparency in evaluation pre-printed booklets are provided by
the university with student details such as course code, student ID number, and
these answer books are bar coded.
d. Students can verify their IA marks on university web site before the same is
printed on the final marks card issued to the students.

At the college level:


1) The above mentioned initiatives by the University have been implemented by the
institution with emphasis on continuous evaluation instead of making internal
assessment a mechanical exercise.

JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571313 62


NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

2) The College also has a centralized Internal Assessment Test which is conducted
in a similar pattern of university examination. Seating arrangements are made juat
like university procedure. This helps the students to get adjusted with the new
system of examination and evaluation process.
3) Class attendance, notes making and maintenance, disciplined approach to
learning are all taken into consideration.

2.5.3 How does the institution ensure effective implementation of the evaluation
reforms of the university and those initiated by the institution on its own?
Any reform in examination and evaluation envisaged by the University of Mysore is
implemented by affiliated colleges by bringing it to the notice of the concerned stakeholders.
 The Principal convenes a meeting of staff members where such issues are
discussed threadbare which becomes a preamble to the introduction of reforms
and changes. It is then informed to the students through class teachers, general
announcements and notice board displays.
 The college examination committee ensures the smooth conduct of examination in
the institution.
 The university appoints a deputing chief and flying squad teams visit the college
and take rounds and the college has provision of internal squad during the exams.

2.5.4. Provide details on the formative and summative assessment approaches adopted
to measure student achievement. Cite a few examples which have positively
impacted the system.
The formative evaluation approach intends to test the students’ understanding
and their ability to comprehend throughout the semester. Teachers evaluate the
capacity of students through:

 Unit tests
 Assignments
 Group discussions
 Seminars
 Practical classes
 Projects
 PPT

JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571313 63


NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

At the end of the semester a summative evaluation is made by teachers taking into
cognizance the performance of the students in the testing parameters citied above along with
terminal tests. Regular attendance, punctuality, promptness in executing the given task is also
taken into consideration for evaluation.

Positive Impact: Such continuous evaluation process has its own advantages:

 It paves the way for true learning, weaning the students away from the rote
method of studying.
 Poor learners are identified and extra coaching, extra care and guidance given.
 Both students and teachers become goal oriented.
 Improvement in the overall performance in the final examinations.

2.5.5 Detail on the significant improvements made in ensuring rigor and transparency
in the internal assessment during the last four years and weightages assigned for
the overall development of students (weightage for behavioral aspects,

7.3.1: Two best practice which have contributed to the achievement of the Institutional
objectives and /or contributed to the quality improvement of the core activities of the
college.

I. Weekly assembly

a) Goal:- The main goal of this is to build morale & cohesion among students &
staff. This increases & improves the communication, sharing-learning
experiences, leading to uplift the team spirit.
b) Context: - Since the college campus is vast with two buildings, a separate
library block. It is difficult for students & staff to get academic, administrative
information. The weekly assembly helps the students & the staff to update
themselves with current affairs of the college.
c) Practices: - Class teachers of the respective class/section give guidance to
organize weekly assembly in the college. Normally, assembly begins with the
prayer. Thought for the day, news reading overview of the departmental &
college activities, special activity of the students for that particular period is the
different follow ups of the assembly.

JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571313 224


NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

 Various information regarding announcement of exam dates, last date for


fees payments, scholarship, intra- inter college activities are also shared.
This helps for easy tuning of the students about the happenings of the
college. It is also a platform for the Principal to interact & address the
students & staff.

 The assembly gives the students an opportunity to develop public


speaking skills, organizational ability & team work. This also provides
an opportunity to identify talent among students.

d) Evidence of success:- This program has been carried out successfully & has
built leadership qualities among the students. Assembly has also helped to
disseminate information on all aspects in the college to all the students in a
timely manner.
 Weekly assembly has helped the students in team building and
developing oratory skills
e) Problems encountered & resources required:- Along with routine workload
extension of the working hours on the days of assembly burdens the students.
Optimum utilization of human resource.

II. Student Counselling

a) Goal:- our college is a women’s college located in the border area of southern
Karnataka at the foot of Biligirirangana betta which is rich in bio-diversity .
Most of our students come from the surrounding areas and not much exposed to
the modern amenities and technologies. The main goal of counselling is to
tackle their diversified adolescent, problems since our students (girl in general)
are very sensitive to the gender issues.
b) Context: - It is observed that, some of the girls, because of the influence of
mobiles &social media; unknowingly, are trapped & lose interest in studies.
They divert their minds for unnecessary things. They have some behavioural
problems also. Such students are to be counselled properly, so that they can be
survived from their life risk & continue their education.
 Lack of public transportation and conveyance may lead to dropout of
students, hence counseling is needed.

JSS COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, B R HILLS ROAD, CHAMARAJANAGAR-KARNATAKA-571313 225


NAAC - SELF STUDY REPORT – CYCLE-III- 2012 - 2017

c) The practice:- The students are counselled by senior faculty through discussion.
Their real problems are understood. Proper advises are given. If there is a need,
their parents are also counselled & advised to provide ambient atmosphere to
their children at home.
d) Evidence of success:- Among the counselled students most of them realized
their mistakes & concentrated their interest towards studies, resulting in
increased level of confidence and over all development of these students are
improved.
e) Problems encountered & resources required:-Since students are from
traditional, conventional, socio - economic background, they exhibit rigidity in
revealing their problems.

Counsellors face great challenge to convince them.

35 SWOC analysis of the department and future plans.

Strengths :

 Committed faculty

 Innovative methods of teaching

 Deployment of curriculum through student centric activities

Weakness

 Rural based students are in majority and hence a natural reluctance and difference in
learning English

 Most of the students are first generation English learners.

 Educated in local medium of instruction (Kannada)

Opportunities :

 To add to the repertoire of new teaching methods

 To increase study circle activities

Challenges

 As many students are first generation learners teaching them to speak and write
English is a challenge.

 Improving results in English in B.A programme.
