PREAMBLE

 

Brief Introduction to the Institute

 

HariKhetan Multiple Campus is a public campus which is established at the heart of Birgunj Sub metropolitan city. This institution is one of the famous and prestigious college of Nepal in general and of Terai in particular. HKMC is shining brilliantly on the Indo- Nepal trans boarder with international outlook at Birgunj which is a grand projection of academically surrounding with highly qualified and experienced teachers, brilliant students aspiring for building promising careers. It deserves a very laudable social status for its illumination of knowledge at the centre of the city. Undisputed magnificence of academically activity has overshadowed other institutions. Its intellectual’s contribution to society has been acknowledged at higher levels illuminating the hidden scholastic talents of Nepal in the global context. The entire Terai area is proud of its glorifying educational fragrance culminating in imparting quality education at a very low cost to the students of intellectually and economically backward classes in the most mannered and disciplined way with the highest score of results.

HKMC is a boon for the people of the Terai area of Nepal for providing job oriented qualitative education in various faculties of science, commerce and education in general and BBS,MBS, BSc in Environmental science, IT with MA in Rural Development, MA in Sociology/Anthropology, M.Ed. in Nepali, EPM in particular. The ecological aspect is really acknowledgeable in the context of the green surrounding of the whole nation. The eminence of RD, Sociology and Environmental Science is co-related in transforming the socially and intellectually depressed nation like Nepal into an upholder of panoramic sight.

HKMC is a public campus run by management committee. The campus is indebted to the people of the locality who feel very secured after making their children admit in the campus enthusiastically. The campus has the only ‘MAHILA CAMPUS’ also in the heart of the city for the progress of ladies in society and the whole responsibility of providing security facility to the girl student admitted in the campus. And for it seven  busses, four for girls and three for boys run on different roads for carrying them from their rural residences to the campus and vice-versa. Altogether, this institution is now having more thanthree thousand student strength.

But it is a regrettable fact that in spite of great social and academic importance the campus lacks accommodation facilities for which two more campuses “Mercantile Building and MaisthanBidhapith” have been hired to facilitate the students for their teaching learning activity. Recently, HKMC has bought eight Katha land near panitanki, Adarshanagar for the construction of proposed Science block and girls’ hostel to overcome the problem of accommodation facilities of the campus.

The campus has its own constitution approved by the campus management committee. All the internal bodies of the campus are formed in accordance with the provision made by the campus constitution. The campus constitution has clearly defined job, responsibility, and right of different internal bodies, portfolio members and working units. Under the provision of campus constitution, Academic and Administrative by laws and Economic Administration by laws have been formulated and enforced by the campus assembly.All academic, administrative and financial activities of the campus are governed and regulated by the campus constitution and by laws formulated under it.

Thus, the campus constitution is the main charter that states, defines and regulates different provisions, rules and regulations in a scientific way to achieve the prime goalsand objectives of the campus in terms of catering up-to-date qualitative education for all.

Since its establishment up to the present time, the campus has been providing quality education to the students. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched the Quality Assurance and Accreditation (QAA) program with the aim of    improving the quality of higher education in Nepal. HKMC has decided to participate in QAA process to serve the following purposes:

  • To assure students and public for high quality education.
  • To make the campus recognized as an institution providing high quality
  • To identify weaknesses, drawbacks and areas of improvement in the process of achieving qualitative higher education.

Development History

HariKhetan Multiple Campus (HKMC) is a non-profit oriented community based institution, established in 2038 B.S. It is the pioneer campus for catering higher education in Parsa district. Since its establishment up to the present situation, it has gone through several upheavals achieving several historic educational milestones that have not only transfigured itself but also changed the face of Parsa district contributing a lot of skillful educated manpower required for the nation. The campus at present is the consequence of the insurmountable efforts, unflinching struggle with deep love of people of Parsa district, District Development Committee, Birgunj Sub Metropolitan City, various private and public organizations including Birgunj Chamber of Commerce and Industry and so on.

Highlights of Major Activities and Achievements

 

The campus has been running different academic programs from the +2 level to the master’s degree. It conducts orientation programs, seminars and workshops to carry out academic activities effectively. It has also been conducting internal examination in three different phases in all the levels to evaluate students’ academic performance. Based on the results of the internal examination obtained by the students, the campus also provides necessary feedback through the coachingclass especially for weak students in difficult subjects like English, Math, and Account and so on. The students have been immensely benefited in improving their academic performance through these activities.
Besides teaching-learning activities in the classrooms, the campus has also been running extra-curricular activities to orient the students towards the practical value of their theoretical knowledge. The extra-curricular activities include oratory contest, poem recitation, cultural shows through singing and dancing, and sports competitions in basketball, volleyball, football, javelin throw, shortput, kabaddi, table tennis and so on.

Apart from the academic activities performed in the campus premises, the campus has been conducting different social activities through students’ participation in order to inculcate the sense of civic responsibilities and social services in them. The students are encouraged to participate in blood donation, traffic awareness programs, environmental awareness programs, distributing fruit to the patients in hospital on campus anniversary, collecting fund, necessary food and clothes and distributing them to the victims of natural calamities.

Having got success in establishing required physical infrastructure, HKMC at present has been running +2 programs in Science, Management, Humanities and Education, affiliated to Higher Secondary Education Board. It has also been running bachelor programs in Science, Management, Humanities and Social Sciences, Law and Education, affiliated to Tribhuvan University. Likewise, Master’s Degree programs in Management, in Humanities, Sociology/Anthropology, RD, in Education, Nepali, EPM, Health Education affiliated toTribhuvan University are also running quite effectively. It has been catering qualitative education in students at different levels at the affordable rate of fee. Our students have succeeded several times in achieving the second, the third, and the third positions in the final examination held by T.U. in different years of the past.
Despite the fulfillment of the basic requirements, HKMC is still in need of modernized computer and science labs and audio-visual room in order to achieve the goals and objectives of the campus. It is also aspiring for a well-equipped auditorium hall to organize various educational programs such as seminar, exhibition, and workshop and so on. Moreover, HKMC is moving ahead with an aim of fulfilling all the requirements to meet the aspired goals and objectives with the collective efforts of all concerned authorities. The campus still has to make a lot of endeavors to be a leading and vibrant educational institution of the nation.

Educational Faculties Available at Present

HariKhetan Multiple Campus started its academic program with intermediate level in Commerce. However, different academic programs were added later on to fulfill the educational need of this region. Now, the campus is running academic programs of different levels and faculties that have been mentioned below:

  • +2 Programs in Science, Management, Humanities and Education (HSEB) -Morning & Day Shift
  • Three Years B.B.S. (T.U.) – Morning Shift
  • Three Years B.A. (T.U.) – Morning Shift
  • Three Years B.Ed. (T.U.) – Morning Shift
  • Three Years B.Sc. (T.U.) – Morning Shift
  • Three years LLB (TU)- Evening Shift
  • B.S. (T.U.) – Evening Shift
  • A. in Sociology & Anthropology (T.U.) – Evening Shift
  • A. in RD (T.U.) – Evening Shift
  • . Ed. in Nepali (T.U.) – Evening Shift
  • Ed in EPM (TU) – Evening Shift
  • Ed. in Health Education (TU) – Evening Shift

Despite the educational programs running now, new educational programs and subjects in accordance with the demands of local community and students compatible with the need of time are yet to be introduced.

At present, more than 3000 students are studying in this campus. This campus has not only facilitated the students of the district, especially those from the backward class, it has also immensely facilitated many students mainly from the backward class in the neighboring districts such as Bara, Parsa, Rautahat, Makwanpur, Sarlahi, Dhading, Kavre and Sindhuli. It has granted educational opportunities in an easy access to the people mainly from economically, socially and educationally backward classes such as Madhesi, Muslim, Dalit, Dhanuk, Kurmi,Kalwarand other ethnic groups.

Physical Infrastructure and Financial Position of the Campus:

The campus started its academic journey in the building of Tri-judhha High School (a government School). It did not have any physical property at that time. Later on, 6kathha of land was made available for the campus by the Khetan family in order to provide stability and permanency to it. A building with six rooms was constructed on the land and the whole set up of the campus was shifted to its own building on 2038 B.S.. The campus needed more rooms for the accommodation of the increasing number of students. Therefore, other three floor were constructed in the subsequent years. The details of the physical infrastructure have been presented below:

  • Main Building (Three Story) – 40 rooms
  • Maisthan Building (two Story)- 23 rooms
  • Marchantile Building (two Story)-6 rooms
  • Tin-Roofed Block-20 rooms
  • Toilets for Male & Female – 29

 

At present, the campus has huge building in which it has been operating administrative service and teaching learning activities. There is also a s science and the computer laboratories. There is also a beautiful garden. The temple of Goddess Saraswati is standing in front of the maisthan building of the campus. As stated above, HKMC is a non-profit earning educational institution, the only source of its income is students’ fee, which is not sufficient for its overall development. The campus can not increase the rate of fee to increase its income. The people of this region are economically handicapped and they cannot afford to pay high rate of fee. Time and again, the students and the guardians even plead for reducing the existing rate of tuition fee. So, the campus is bound to teach the poor students at lower rate of monthly fee. Therefore, the campus always faces financial crisis, which poses obstacles in its development.

Achievement and Quality of Education Maintained by the Campus

The campus has been providing quality education with updated information to the
students. Many students have secured different position in the University at different levels which has helped this campus gain nationwide popularity. Besides, it has also produced a number of professionals who have been well placed in different government and non-government organization. It has often produced good results ever since it was founded. However, the graduation rate and the quality of education have not been enhanced to the level of our expectation. We believe that there is still a lot to be done in order to enhance the graduation rate and quality of education.

Present Position of Human Resources:

The details of the Human Resources have been presented below:

 

Teaching Staff Permanent Contract Part time Total
Professor 1

The vacant post of teaching and non-teaching staffs are announced for free competition and fulfilled thereby. Nonetheless, the professional development of teaching and non-teaching staff has not been enhanced to the level of requirement because of limited resources.

Development Initiatives

The effective implementation of planning activities is possible only when the components
of planning can be expressed into an integrated framework relating the different activities to
each other. The planning model of HKMC incorporates four interrelated cycle of planning activities-Strategic Planning, Annual Planning, Quality Enhancement Planning and Evaluation and Review.

Strategic Planning

It covers a period of five years. A review for our mission, evaluation of SWOT through internal and external environment scan provides the basis for the five year cycle of planning implementation and evaluation. The strategic plan drives specialized plans for various areas of the campus.

Annual Planning

Annual Planning process is the complementary part of the strategic planning process. So, annual planning process is carried out keeping in view of the strategic goals and objectives stated in strategic plan. Annual planning process evaluates previous year’s activities in different areas and prepares the plan for the next year. Campus management committee, campus council, faculties, staffs and students are involved in annual planning process.

Quality Enhancement Planning

Quality enhancement planning process draws input from annual planning process focusing on vision, mission and the goals of the campus. The planning model envisions continuous process of quality enhancement planning. Quality enhancement planning reflects the commitment of the campus to pursue excellence throughout the planning cycle. So, quality enhancement planning is an integral part of the campus planning model.

Evaluation and Review

The ultimate success of strategic plan depends upon continuous evaluation and review of the plan. Continuous evaluation and review of the plan is helpful to identify and solve the problems faced by the campus in implementing strategic plan and specialized sub plans.

SSR PREPARATION

 

How It Is Understood

The campus has taken strong initiatives as set by the parameters designed by Second Higher Education Project (SHEP) under the Quality Assurance and Accreditation (QAA) process to enhance quality education through this institution. As required in the QAA process, the campus has been engaged in documentation and SSR preparation immediately after attending the QAA training program organized by SHEP in SanothimiBhaktapur.

This self-study report (SSR) contains overall information of HariKhetan Multiple Campus, Birgunj, from the date of its inception to the present day situation. In other words, it is the mirror of HariKhetan Multiple Campus that reflects overall academic performance of the institution since its establishment that has not only contributed to developing the educational status of the people of this region, but also has tremendously contributed to the career enhancement of Nepali citizens in different sectors through qualitative education. Though it is also one of the reliable documents of the institution sought by SHEP for quality assurance and accreditation in one sense, the campus has understood it as the most important institutional document which contains the information of overall academic performance of the institution in the past and on the basis of which the campus is able to make both retrospective as well as introspective analysis through documentation for better academic performance in future in another sense.

 

This self-study report has also paved the way for this institution to formulate new academic plans, policies and procedures and guided a lot to implement them effectively in order to meet the qualitative educational needs of new generations emerging today. It has also immensely facilitated the institution in conducting various academic programs in systematic and scientific way through documentation. Similarly, it has also bolstered the campus image in national arena by particularly highlighting its historic educational milestones and setting forth its further strengths, challenges and weaknesses.

 

Formation of SSR Team

The campus has formed the Self-Study Report (SSR) team under the coordination of the Head of the Faculty to conduct and carry out overall academic as well as administrative activities in order to prepare SSR and complete documentation. Mr. Kishori Ray, the Head of the core SSR team, is leading the SSR task force that involves Mr. Mukta Kumar Bhusal, Mr. SurendraChaudhari, the members of the core SSR team.

Since its formation, the SSR task force is always dedicated to conduct and carry out overall academic activities as guided and instructed by the parameters set up by SHEP to help enhance quality education through our institution. This SSR task force has frequently solicited with the QAA officials at QAA office to acquire necessary advice for accomplishing task of SSR preparation and documentation on time. According to the guidelines and formal advice provided by the QAA officials, the SSR task force has made some highly commendable achievements in quality improvement. It has also involved teaching and non-teaching staffs in nine different committees formed by the campus to help conduct and carry out overall academic activities for quality enhancement in education provided by the campus.

These committees are actively engaged in their respective areas of research and have been regularly contributing to the growth of institution through quality education.

 

Approaches

The SSR team of this institution has followed different approaches to complete the task of documentation and SSR preparation. The following approaches are the major approaches through which this task force is aiming to accomplish the task of documentation and SSR preparation.

Orientation

The SSR team has given several orientation classes to the teaching and non-teaching staff of the campus in order to help improve academic environment of the campus and thereby lead it to the direction of maintaining the status of quality assurance and accreditation. This task force has guided and instructed its different sub-committees (as mentioned above in the table) through orientation to conduct and carry out overall academic activities in a systematic way. Likewise, this SSR task force has also provided several orientation classes to the students in order to acquaint them with the major task of the SSR team and to maintain coordination.

Seminar

The campus has conducted different seminar programs with local community, industry, different NGOs and INGOs to acquaint them with the QAA process of the institution. Through this activity, the SSR team has been able to collect different opinions from different organizations of the locality which have immensely facilitated the SSR team to accomplish the task of SSR preparation and documentation. This team has also conducted various seminar activities with the guardians of the students and collected their valuable opinions which have played very crucial role in the growth of the institution through quality enhancement.

 

Conference:

The campus has organized various conferences with the stakeholders of the institution in order to involve them actively in the process of leading the institution to the direction marked by the standard of the QAA. Through the conferences organized by the campus, the SSR team has been able to gain support from different organizations, donors, stakeholders, and community members, which has immensely facilitated the SSR team in carrying out the task of SSR preparation and documentation.

Participation and Discussion:

Most importantly, the SSR team has followed the approach of wider participation of all the teaching and the non-teaching staff of the institution and carried out massive discussion on various issues related to the institution in order to accomplish the task of SSR preparation and documentation for quality assurance and accreditation. It has conducted several meetings with the teaching and the non-teaching staffs for the discussion on the several issues related to the Quality Assurance and Accreditation (QAA) parameters and the campus situation.  This approach has enabled the SSR team to collect different views of the staff which have immensely facilitated the SSR task force to accomplish the task of SSR preparation and documentation on time.

 

Visits

The SSR team has also visited the companion colleges chosen in SHEP. Such visits have immensely facilitated the process of preparing SSR. The SSR team has also visited the QAA office time and again and has followed genuine suggestions and instructions given by the QAA officials.

 

Validation

The working committees formed by the SSR task force (as mentioned above) conduct and carry out their works on their respective areas and submit their reports to the campus administration. The campus administration studies and analyzes their reports through massive discussion on various details of the submitted reports with the committee members and the administrative bodies before submitting them to the campus management committee. Different faculty heads, department heads, program coordinators, assistant campus chiefs and campus chief are involved in discussion with different committee members on various topics of their reports. Necessary corrections are made by the campus administration during the discussion session and the reports are verified with the signatures of committee members, different faculty heads, department heads, program coordinators, assistant campus chiefs and campus chief as required for finalization. After the verification, the campus administration submits the verified reports
prepared by the working committees to the campus management committee for the final approval. The campus management committee studies and analyzes the verified documents through massive discussion with the campus administration. It also observes and studies the compatibility of the verified reports with the existing campus situation and environment. During the discussion session, the campus management committee makes corrections as deemed necessary. After the newly made corrections, the verified reports are finally approved by the campus management committee.

Thus, all the documents prepared under the instruction of the SSR task force have gone through this process of verification in documentation. The SSR task force has been immensely facilitated in designing this document of self-study report through this process of verification and documentation. All the documents included in this report and referred to are verified by the campus administration and approved by the campus management committee. The terms and conditions of their validity are well stated in the campus constitution and the campus by laws.

 

 

CRITERION 1: POLICY AND PROCEDURES

 

The policy and procedures of the campus have been clearly defined in the campus constitution with its goals, objectives and standards. The academic council prepares the academic plans and programs and submits the documents to the executive body for verification. The executive body discusses on different issues related to the goals, objectives and standards of the campus, and recommends the plans and programs for effective implementation. It creates necessary infrastructures and mechanisms required for the effective implementation of the plans and programs to achieve the estimated goals, objectives and standards. All teaching staffs are responsible for the job towards their program coordinators and faculty heads. All program coordinators and faculty heads are responsible for their job towards assistant campus chief (academic) and academic council. All administrative staffs are responsible for their job towards assistant campus chiefs (administration and academic) and executive committee. The campus chief and the assistant campus chiefs are responsible for their works towards the campus management committee is the supreme body of the college. The Campus chief submits its decisions to campus management committee for endorsement. The college has different academic and financial committees to provide quality education and improve academic environment. There is also a provision of collecting feedbacks from different stakeholders which helps the college to make and amend its policies. Students’ Union also plays positive and responsible role in making campus policies.

 

To enhance academic excellence, the campus has policy to introduce new graduate and postgraduate programs as per the academic necessity of this region. To attract outstanding students, the college has formed a policy to provide more merit-based scholarships and introduce modern technology with teaching, learning, research and other activities. The college gives especial attention and provides scholarships to educationally disadvantaged groups (dalits, janajaties, females, etc.) to ensure quality education in affordable price for all. The college has been working to develop it as a regional research institution. In this regard the Research Committee is trying to establish relations with more institutions, NGOs and INGOs. The campus encourages the teachers to do research works by providing them incentives. The college is going to make policy to provide seed money for their research work. To promote external relations and improve the image of the college, many social activities are being organized.   It has taken initiative to promote partnership with external organization by launching outreach programs involving different GO, NGO and INGOs.

The college has been organizing workshops, seminars, and discussion programs frequently for quality enhancement. It also sends the teaching and the non-teaching staff to participate in different workshops and seminars to develop their skills. However, such programs are not sufficiently held. Therefore, the campus has felt the necessity of more such programs and more budgets have been allocated for such programs.

CRITERION 2: CURRICULAR ASPECTS

 

The campus has been consistently running its curricular activities according to the courses prescribed by the Tribhuvan University (T. U.) in terms of its goals, objectives and standards. There are different areas of studies open for the aspiring students. Various optional and elective subjects are offered for their choices. Interdisciplinary courses are introduced at the beginning of the year. Updated courses of arts, commerce, education and science are clarified for the convenience of the students. The campus has conducted five programs (BBS, B.Sc., BA, Bed,LLB ) in Bachelor’s Level and three subjects ( MBS, M.A. in sociology and MA in RD, M.Ed. in Nepali, EPM, Health)in Master’s level. Thestudents can choose different elective subjects according to their interests as per the capacity of the campus in any discipline of Bachelor Level. The campus has conducted programs in the morning shift, day shift and evening shift to facilitate the need of the students. The campus offers elective options, horizontal mobility and time frame matching student convenience. We have a plan to introduce demand oriented subjects to match with the regional and national requirements. We give importance to the involvement of teachers, communities, students and stakeholders to achieve goals and objectives of the campus.

 

Besides the academic courses, the students are also encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities compatible with their curricular aspects.    In this way, the campus has been running its curricular activities in harmony with its goals, objectives and standards. The campus obtains its feedback on teaching programs from campus council. To impart value based education, the campus has been running different curricular activities to create socio-cultural and national political awareness in students. It has also been running extra-curricular activities such as quiz, sports, and oratory programs and so on for the sake of all round personality development of the students. There is college-industry-neighborhood network in course-works at present. We frequently consult with the stakeholders of possible fields of employment for their needs and demands and we extend our programs accordingly. However, the campus has been facing some challenges in curricular activities.

Despite the fact that the campus has got the feasibility to orient the students towards the engineering courses, M. Phil. and Ph. D. degrees, it has not been fully able to introduce such programs according to the need of the community of this region. It is still in need of wider financial support from national and international organizations in order to launch and continue with such programs for it has got very narrow source of income only through the students’ fee.

Though the campus has been running some self-financed courses such as computer trainings, yet it has got to introduce some more self-financing courses as per the need of the students. In this regard, the campus is planning to start some academic courses like TOEFL, IELTS, etc., and bridge courses for the students of science.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRITERION 3: TEACHING, LEARNING AND EVALUATION

 

The campus ensures wide publicity to the admission process through prospectus, newspapers, F.M. radios, pamphlets, hoarding boards, banners, etc. The students are admitted in the campus through their academic records. They are given orientation classes to introduce them to the course, evaluation methods and teaching learning environment of the campus. Multiple areas of studies have been introduced for their choices. The college promotes access to ensure equity by offering sufficient scholarship to students from disadvantaged community, women, differently-able, economically weaker section and sports personnel.

Qualified and well experienced teachers teach in the classroom. Different methods and procedures are applied in the classroom to carry out teaching learning activities effectively. Teachers prepare annual lesson plan and it is strictly followed throughout the academic year which is evaluated periodically in review meetings. The lecture method of teaching is supplemented with assignments, directed studies, audio-visual presentation, internet facility, and so on. The students’ performance is also evaluated through their results in the internal examinations, which is communicated to the students through result sheets. The answer sheets of the students are also distributed after the result which helps them realize their mistakes.  Free coaching classes of difficult subjects are conducted for the students who cannot perform well in internal examinations. Necessary handouts are provided in the classroom. Because of these efforts, many students of this campus have frequently secured top positions in university levels in different years. Permanent and temporary teaching faculties are appointed through free competition in accordance with the provisions made in the campus legislation.  Teachers’ performance in teaching is evaluated on the basis of their presentation in the classroom, students’ response, the result in the internal as well as the final examinations. The campus encourages the teaching staff to participate in seminars, conferences and workshops to keep pace with the recent developments in various subjects and for the professional development of the faculty. The campus also elicits the feedback from the passed out students about the teaching learning environment of the campus informally. Thus, the teaching learning activities and evaluation are carried out every year to maintain the standard of quality education. The campus is upgrading and modernizing its library by installing library software and adding text books, reference materials, magazines, newspapers and academic equipment to ensure and easy access to the students. The campus is launching policies and programs to make its teachers, students and staffs to be dependable on computer use. However, the campus is facing some challenges in teaching, learning and evaluation. Though the campus has been using multi-media and audio-visual equipment in teaching-learning activities, it has not been sufficient in proportion to the large number of students. It is in need of separate multi-media and audio-visual classrooms with advanced equipment. Therefore, the campus is planning to make separate rooms for audio-visual and multi-media presentation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRITERION 4: RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION

 

The campus allocates about 2% amount for research from its total annual budget every year. The students are encouraged every year to conduct effective research in the areas of their studies. They are also facilitated in making tour and travels from place to place to collect actual data and information related to their studies. The programs of workshop, seminar and conference are conducted inside and outside the campus premises. A research committee has been formed to evaluate the performance of the students of Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in research. Though the teachers are not engaged in active research at present, the campus is planning to encourage the teachers in research activities supporting them with financial aids achieved through matching grants. The campus has been coordinating with Municipality, District Development Office, Birgunj Chamber of Commerce, banks, finance companies and Industries for the internship and research activities of the students.

 

However, the campus is facing some challenges in research, consultancy and extension. The campus has formed its own publication division which has been facilitating in the publication of campus magazines, prospectus, brochures, academic calendar, and newspapers for practical purpose of the students, but the college has not been able to publish scholarly journals till now. So, it is planning to publish it regularly in coming years. Though the college has been actively participating and organizing different social activities, it has been realized that the campus should increase such social activities to enhance public relation. Therefore, it is aspiring to introduce new extension activities and outreach programs along with NGOs and GOs deemed necessary for academic excellence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRITERION 5: INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES

 

The campus has its own master plan indicating the existing infrastructures and the projected expansion in future.    At present, the campus has three separate eye catching buildings of its own to run the classes from the +2 level up to the level of Master’s degree. All the classrooms are equipped with enough furniture. The campus is planning to add up some more modernized furniture with scientific equipment to facilitate the teaching learning activities in the classrooms. There is a separate building for administration in which different departments of administration are carrying on administrative activities. There is also a separate building standing next to the campus building in which the library has been set up. The campus has a sophisticated computer lab with on line facility which opens during campus hours. The campus also has its own well equipped science lab for the students of Microbiology, Environmental Science and IT in B. Sc. Program. Some physical infrastructures for sports and physical education are also available in the campus. The campus provides scholarship to the outstanding sports persons. Many students of this campus have secured positions in national and international games until recently.

The library is in the process of getting modernized with proper scientific equipment. There are text books, references, articles, journals, magazines and newspapers available for all in the library. Software system is going to be used to collect data and information. The campus has its own-library resources. The campus has library advisory committee which consists of assistant campus chiefs, different faculty heads, coordinators, head of the library and representative of students’ union.  This committee plans to make the library more advanced and equipped by installing special library software to make it automated which has been passed by SHEP under the criteria of matching grants.

 

The college has well facilitated staff room, spacious canteen, enough vehicles parking and common room for students, which is also used as student union’s office. There is a small dispensary room with necessary first aid medicines.  The college has a plan of making a guest room in administrative block of the college which is also included in strategic plan of the college.

Since, HariKhetan Multiple Campus is a leading college of this region, a large number of students from different part joins this college every year. Because of this there is strong demand from the students for hostel facility and the college has been taking initiatives to fulfill this demand with the financial help from Indian Embassy. Indian Embassy also has given positive response towards this.

CRITERION 6: STUDENT SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE

 

The campus has been supporting the students to carry out their academic performance. Many students of this campus have passed Nepal Civil Service Examinations, other in country examinations and TOEFL. They have secured prominent positions in different fields of society and various sectors of employment. The campus prepares the updated prospectus every year and distributes among the students to cater academic information in them. The prospectus contains all information of its academic programs and their features. The policies and criteria of admission are made clear to the students through prospectus, counseling, media etc. The campus has no special admission policy with regard to overseas students. It gives scholarship to the diligent students who obtain good results in the internal examinations. The students unwilling to participate in internal examinations are excluded from the process of getting any kind of scholarship given by the college. They are motivated with internal as well as external feed backs to participate in internal examinations. The students from poor and backward community also get financial support through scholarship. They are also strongly recommended for various financial aids offered by the government and other national and international organizations. On the basis of such recommendation, many students have got scholarship from government and non-governmental organizations.

The campus has its own employment cell and it studies the areas of employment
opportunities for the students. The campus has placed many students in different fields of employment. Many students have secured prominent positions in various governmental and non-governmental organizations and it has the record of those students who have succeeded in maintaining their positions. The college also has an alumni association to expand the network of information about the passed out students of the college. The campus has allocated five percent of annual campus budget for scholarship of students in different titles. The campus has been providing the services of clean drinking water, hygienic canteen facility and first aid services to the students. There are different dress codes for the students of different levels according to their faculties. They are frequently monitored and checked by the discipline committee of the campus. The committee has three female members who study the cases of sexual harassment of female students and carry out necessary actions.

However, the campus has been facing some kinds of challenges in student support and guidance. The college has the computer laboratory for skill development of students. But because of large number of students, it is felt that the number of computers is not adequate for all the students. Similarly, a large number of students have been appearing in the competitive examinations every year. Though it is very difficult for the college to collect all the data, the college has been able to trace almost 40% of outgoing students’ records. From next year, the campus will make some mechanism which will help to trace the record of all out going students.

Though the campus has been regularly publishing its prospectus, brochure, academic calendar, and newspaper for the practical purpose of the students, it has not been able to publish college magazine and journal regularly. Therefore, the campus has allocated enough budgets for the publication cell from this year to publish the campus magazine and journal more regularly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRITERION 7: INFORMATION SYSTEM

The campus has its own academic committee. It analyzes and records various academic data. It prepares and submits the analyzed data to the campus management committee for discussion. The areas on which such analysis is carried out are students’ pass rate (overall and subject wise), students’ enrollment position, positions secured by the students in university examinations and so on. The results of such analysis are kept in the campus. The information of those students who have achieved academic excellence is published in the college newspaper. The feedbacks are taken internally from students on the results of the analysis of academic data. Such feedbacks have enabled the campus to improve the quality of education.

However, the campus doesn’t have its own web site. So, it is planning to make its own web site in which all the information about the campus activities will be described for the viewers. From this system, it will be easier for the college to reach its stakeholders and to get feedbacks from them. It will also help the college to widen its horizon in public sector. Therefore, the college is planning to allocate some budget for these propose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRITERION 8: PUBLIC INFORMATION

 

The campus has its own public information cell. This cell is comprised of 5 members. They are Kishori Ray (Asst. Campus Chief), Nawal Kishor Yadav(Asst. Campus Chief), Pramod Yadav (Lec. Chemistry)Vijay Gupta (Lec. Physics), Shambhu Chaurasia (Lec. Management). They conduct various activities to circulate information of the campus to various public sectors concerned. The campus has acquainted different public sectors to its various programs in order to increase public participation in its program.

It collects overall institutional information and submits it to the campus administration which is later on submitted to the annual meeting of the campus council. The record of such information is kept in the campus library which is open to stakeholders. The campus publishes its own Souvenir called “Swaratswini”. This public information cell facilitates them in this process of publication of the newspaper. In this newspaper, the public information cell publishes information about different programs run by the campus, profile of students who have achieved the awards in different fields of academic performance and extra-curricular activities in regional, national and international levels. These information are also published in prospectus, brochure, advertisement, etc. However, as the campus is in the process of making its own web site, the information of the college will be more public after that

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CRITICAL APPRAISAL

Over the past twenty nine years since its establishment, the campus has achieved several educational milestones in both the bachelor’s and the master’s programs. It has succeeded in widening its physical infrastructure along with its widening vision, mission, goals and objectives. In course of achieving this success, Hari Khetan Multiple Campus has also undergone several ups and downs with unflinching support from the people of this region. The most powerful factor to establish it as a leading educational institution for higher education in this region is nothing other than the qualitative education at the affordable rate of fee it has been catering in students for years.

At present more than 1000 students have been studying in different programs of this
campus. Being a non-profit earning community based educational institution; it is always committed to educate the aspiring students at the affordable rate of fee. The campus management committee, the academic council, the administration, the teaching and non-teaching staffs, and the students, all are cooperative in the matter of campus development through quality enhancement. Several internal and external donors and agencies have provided financial assistance to develop physical infrastructures of the campus. Qualified, skilled and efficient manpower has been contributing a lot to quality enhancement. About 50% of the total students regularly complete graduation and post-graduation with excellent positions each year. Nonetheless, the campus has yet to exercise a lot to meet the criteria for keeping pace with the changing goals and objectives of the academic world. Being a community based education institution; it has got to appear boldly in the competition with private colleges mushrooming every year. Keeping pace with the national political scenario, HKMC is therefore moving ahead. Instead of close and forced teaching learning activities, HKMC has established a trend of open system in which students feel free to expose themselves. In this way, HKMC has been spreading the light of higher education for many years. It has been producing skillful manpower each year required for the nation. Almost all the students who have completed their courses from this campus have been well settled in governmental and non-governmental organizations.

 

 

 

 

 

SSR SUMMARY

This Self-Study Report (SSR) of Hari Khetan Multiple Campus contains overall information of the institution in detail. It is written in the format as prescribed by the office of Quality Assurance and Accreditation (QAA). It begins with the institution’s motto, vision, mission, goals, and objectives; continues with the institutional profile, preamble of the institution, institutional narratives; and concludes with the critical appraisal of the institution.

The vision, mission, goals and objectives described in this report are clearly mentioned in the campus constitution, the strategy plan of the campus, and the campus legislation. The supporting documents of all the information given in this report are mentioned in the appendix. All the documents mentioned in the appendix have been systematically filed and preserved through documentation. During the preparation of this SSR, the campus has gone through several meetings, discussions, and interactions with its stakeholders. The decisions made in meetings, discussions and interactions have been recorded in the minutes through documentation. Thus, this report is the product of the collective effort of all the teaching and non-teaching staffs, students, campus administration, campus management committee, local community and its stakeholders.

As explained in detail throughout this SSR, it is quite obvious that the campus has got its own strengths and weaknesses, too. The campus has gone through several upheavals since its inception in 2038. At present, it has been running +2, Bachelor (in management, humanities, education and science) and Master (in Management, Sociology and Anthropology, EPM, Health, RD) Along with the conduction of the updated courses of the University with the necessary technological improvements of audio-visual ads, the campus has been carrying out several extracurricular activities that help boost up the overall career enhancement of the students and bolster the community relation of the college. The academic activities like internal examination, sports, literary symposiums, paper presentations; and programs like blood donation, environmental awareness, health awareness, interactions with the institutions the community, etc. are the solid steps in this regard.

In addition, research activities are encouraged among students and teachers. The college has allocated 2% of its annual budget, and recently, it has formed research committee so as to further research oriented activities establishing link with Municipality, District Development Office, Birgunj Chamber of Commerce, banks, finance companies and I/NGOs.

Regarding physical infrastructure, the college has six buildings–three for teaching learning, one for library, one for administration, and one for canteen. The campus has got modernized computer lab and science lab for the practical purposes of the students. The library is in the process of being modernized through the installment of the computer software.

However, the campus is facing some challenges in terms of the growing needs of the community. Due to the limited and narrow source of its income, it has not been able to introduce new programs on time. It is also in dire need of a hostel for the students who come to study here especially from the neighboring districts like Bara,Makwanpur, Rautahat,Sarlahi,Dhanusha, Chitwan and Sindhuli.  Likewise, the need of an auditorium hall to conduct, workshop, seminar, conference and meetings is also increasing rapidly. The college is also in need of its own vehicle especially for the female students of the night shift programs. Nonetheless, the campus is optimistic towards the solutions of all the existing problems. It is increasing its pace with the UGC project to enhance academic excellence. It is hopeful that it will be able to meet its major targets in relation to the growing needs of the community by dint of the financial support from the Second Higher Education Project (SHEP). Therefore, the campus at present is highly oriented towards the process of achieving UGC grants as set by the UGC parameters.
