1.1.1 – Institution has the mechanism for well planned curriculum delivery and documentation. Explain in 500 words
Ramakrishna Sarada Mission Vivekananda Vidyabhavan is an affiliated college of West Bengal State University and so has to follow the curriculum prescribed by its parent University. An Academic Calendar is prepared at the beginning of each Academic Year. College administration provides a master time table for each year /semester for Undergraduate classes to all Departments. Departmental Heads prepare the routine which is submitted to the Principal. Departmental meetings are held prior to each semester to distribute the courses to be taught equitably among the teachers taking into account the credits assigned, etc. The departments complete the syllabus within a stipulated time. The college ensures the preparation and dissemination of the course and lesson planning, the academic calendar, among the students. Hard and soft copies of the lesson plans and academic calendar are preserved in the departments. The college organises an orientation meeting and a library orientation meeting among the first year students every July, as it did in July 2018. The library is a considerable one, with additions made each year, as well as tie-ups with other libraries. Delivery of curriculum includes a series of methods: • Chalk, Blackboard and lecture presentation method. • ICT-enabled teaching-learning method. • Use of different softwares. • Supplementing the lectures and material in the library with simplified versions of research-based essays from JSTOR and similar sites by teachers. • Micro-teaching and students’ seminars related to curriculum. • Project work to train students in the rudiments of research. • Need based educational excursions and field trips are carried by the departments. • Seminars, workshops and extension lectures by specialists are also arranged regularly. Documentation: Teaching is linked to continuous evaluation with proper documentation. Extension lectures and workshop lectures are often recorded and video recording are kept in soft form. E-modules created by teachers are preserved in hard discs. Photos too are kept in soft form and are shared with interested inter-departmentally. Evaluation: Regular class test, Mid-term examinations, are done to keep track on the improvement of the students. Remedial and tutorial classes are also conducted based on requirement.

The college has introduced the mentorward system under the initiative of the IQAC from the session 201415 (see AQAR 201415). Every week we have a slot fixed for Mentoring. Students of various Departments and students of First, Second and Third Years are assigned to teachers of other Departments in a mentormentee relationship. Only fulltime teachers are given this duty. Initially all the Three Years of students used to be taken up. A workshop has also been conducted by the IQAC on 5 July 2018 in which all full time teachers of the college participated. The resource person was Dr. Subhrangshu Aditya, who spoke on ‘Developing Counselling skill for Mentoring Students’. It was a motivating speech and we also thought about the option of need based slot mentoring. Now the principal focus is on the First Year students. During the first week of the month, there is a compulsory session in which all students of the First Year attend the slot designated for mentoring. For the rest of the weeks, the mentoring slot is kept open and students of all the Years are encouraged to come as and when they need and teachers are more or less available in this slot.

2.5.2 – Reforms initiated on Continuous Internal Evaluation(CIE) system at the institutional level (250 words)
• The West Bengal State University has introduced the CBCS from the session 2018 2019 • As an affiliated college, RKSM Vivekananda Vidyabhavan has to organize the end semester examinations as coordinated centrally by the University. • However, the Semester system has meant that each course now has the following set of marks – • End Semester – 50, Internal Assessment – 20, Attendance 5. • Internal Assessment is left at the discretion of the college, which in turn has given flexibility to each Department looking at diversity of needs. • Sometimes tutorials are taken to identify the slow learners. • The Departmental timetable takes into account separate tutorial classes. • Some Departments arrange Mock Test on the eve of the study leave. • A range of dates of the Internals are however set by the WBSU. • These include both theoretical and practicals. • Internals can vary from written tests to oral presentations and term papers.
2.5.3 – Academic calendar prepared and adhered for conduct of Examination and other related matters (250 words)
The Academic SubCommittee of the Teachers’ Council, under the overall supervision of the IQAC draws up the Academic Calendar at the end of every academic year. The functions of the Academic Calendar are manyfolded. First of all, it ensures the required number of days (credit hours) that classes are to be held. This to meet the stipulated number of 15 week teaching as the guidelines laid out in the CBCS. Second, the academic calendar is drawn up in consultation with the Departments and subcommittees of the college, so that the major programmes sponsored by the college administration, the IQAC, the ICC, and the various Departments are planned beforehand and shown in the calendar. The Academic Calendar also shows dates of college examinations, listed holidays. It also reflects the Academic Calendar of our affiliating University. However, this calendar is sometimes prepared after Semester classes have already commenced. Seminars, workshops, student welfare programmes, annual sports and excursion, annual function, and other issues are all reflected, so that students and teachers are aware of the classes available to them from the beginning of the session. This also helps the teachers to prepare their Lesson Plans. Printed Academic Calendars are distributed to the students and the teachers.

Course: Senior monastics take classes according to a set course, one class for every batch of students per week. Code of conduct is taught, lives of great humans are discussed to examine what constitute proper values. Periodic examinations are held. While the major courses of necessity focus on teaching learning geared to getting specific skills and eventually salaried/entrepreneurial work, value education classes are held to develop other facets of one’s personality, such as the emotional, social and ethical dimensions that are required for the growth of healthy attitudes, collective living and spirit of solidarity among students. 2 Green Campus The Objective and its causes: Environmental crisis is a major concern of the present day world. The college is aware of the twin pitfalls – on one hand an assumption that cleaning up is entirely the responsibility of the state, and that citizens have no duties unless ordered and on the other hand a purely individual centric approach. So an attempt is made to develop a collective eco friendly outlook, to take steps to instill environment consciousness among students, faculty, as well as the local community. This has taken several forms. Greening the campus and avoiding killer pesticides: A considerable garden is maintained by the college. This includes both large trees and shrubs, seasonal flowers and vegetables. Organic, non chemical fertilizers are selected over chemical ones. Compost pits are used. Neem oil and neem enzymes are used as insecticides. An annual tree plantation ceremony is carried out in the presence of faculty and students. Green Audit, Climate Change and Paper: The IQAC has begun discussions concerning a Green Audit. It has felt that rather than showy actions, it will move more firmly in that direction only after understanding what a Green Audit means, in the next year. A programme was also organised on the subject of global warming, and its effect on India with special reference to South Bengal. The college also endeavours to cut down on paper use. The vast bulk of the work of the IQAC is carried out through digital trails. Recycling of paper is also welcomed and promoted. Reducing The Use of Non Bio degradable material: The college has been aware for a long time that certain practices, even though they might contribute to ecocide, cannot be fully eradicated at the local level. Thus, it is now quite well known that biodegradable material, especially singleuse plastic bags, bottles, etc. are dangerous. However, while the manufacture and wide distribution of such items are not halted, their use at local levels cannot be fully stopped. But minimisation of their use can certainly be a subordinate goal. Students are advised and trained to use less plastic bags and bottles.

7.3 – Institutional Distinctiveness
7.3.1 – Provide the details of the performance of the institution in one area distinctive to its vision, priority and thrust in not more than 500 words
In keeping with the vision of the college as set forth in its statement, the college has sought to not merely impart examination oriented rote learning, but to provide the students with ideas of social justice and self reliance rooted in a sense of morality as well as freedom. This is done through a series of regular measures so that tradition and modernity are attempted to be blended, emphasizing women’s power and rights. The teaching and the extracurricular activities are oriented in such a way that the mental health, physical disability, skill development related requirements do not take a back seat. To make students aware of the wider social context in which they live, they are encouraged to participate in regular programmes organised by the college, including community service, blood donation and gender and environmental awareness.
