EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Ravenshaw University came into existence on the 15th day of November, 2006. It was an
up-gradation of Ravenshaw College established in 1868, one of the oldest and largest colleges in
India which subsequently became an autonomous college with Centre of Potential Excellence
status by UGC and 'A' grade by NAAC. The College with all its glorious academic achievement
and ceaseless scholastic pursuits had already created a distinct niche for itself in India and
beyond. The history of this great institution is, in a manner of speaking, the history of modern
Odisha. It was the cradle of ideas fostering national unity and nationalism, promoting social
mobilization and contribution to the freedom struggle. The grand hall of this institution was a
theatre of history: on the 1st of April'1936 it was the venue for the declaration of Odisha as a
separate province; thereafter it housed the State's first legislative assembly, even after
Independence till it was shifted to Bhubaneswar, the new capital of the State. During Quit India
Movement of 1942, the students of this institution brought down the Union Jack as a mark of
nationalistic fervour.
The College originally was affiliated to Calcutta University and thereafter to Patna
University in 1917 and was finally affiliated to Utkal University in 1943. The Utkal University
began functioning from this campus till it was shifted to its present site at Vani Vihar,
Bhubaneswar. This institution is the alma mater of the most distinguished personalities of the
State. Not only the Utkal University but also the Odisha State Museum and Madhusudan Law
College are the offshoots of this Institution obtaining their independent status at a later stage.
Post-graduate teaching started in 1922 with the opening of M.A. English class.
Considering its great heritage, the Institution has been awarded National Honour by the
Government of India through the issue of a commemorative stamp in 1978. The library which
was named after the Raja Sahib of Kanika is the largest in Orissa. Not only is this Institution an
epitome of learning but also a piece of unique Victorian architecture in the country.
The University offers 25 Undergraduate courses, 28 Postgraduate courses, 22 M.Phil
programmes and 25 Ph.D, D.Sc./D.Litt. programmes. In addition the University also offers an
integrated Master’s course in Business Management, an Undergraduate course in Hospitality and
Hotel Administration and a Diploma course in Computer Application. The criteria wise summary
is outlined below.
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
One of the main strengths of the University is curriculum design, which has been done
both in terms of the extensity and intensity of the subjects. All the curricula have been revised
thoroughly by the appropriate academic bodies of the University in close coordination with
teachers, subject experts and external specialists in 2012-13 and 2014-15 and thereafter
periodically updated taking into account the students’ needs, teaching and research potential of
the faculty, emerging trends in various knowledge regimes across the globe, curricular
requirements of various teaching and examining bodies in India and above all the regional needs.
Emphasis on practical training in terms of laboratory work, field work, project
work/dissertation, industrial training, etc. has been given to enhance the employability of the
5|Pa ge
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
course and to help the students to get ready to face the challenges in real life situations. Several
inter-disciplinary courses are run by departments like Botany, Zoology, Political Science,
Economics, Commerce, MBA etc. Semester pattern examinations has been introduced in all
levels since 2010. It is the first University in the State to introduce CBCS in UG levels.
The University has adopted many innovative measures in curriculum-designing and
development such as adoption of CBCS with continuous evaluation through internal
assessments/term papers, project/dissertations, weekly seminars etc. the UGC model of UG
syllabus has already been adopted in the Academic Council and will be effective from the
Academic Session 2016-17. Topics on motivation, leadership, values, ethical sciences,
communication and self-awareness have also been introduced in the curricula of subjects
wherever required for the overall development of the students. Feedback from students both on
courses and on teachers as an integral part of all academic programmes has provided a muchneeded scope for improvement in design and implementation of curriculum.
Criterion II: Teaching – Learning and Evaluation
The University adopts transparent methods of selecting students with strict adherence to the
reservation to different categories of students for admission in various academic programmes offered.
Admission into all PG and higher level courses are done through entrance (followed by interview for
M.Phil./Ph.D. programmes) while selection on mark basis is still continued in UG admissions. The
University follows UGC-2009 guidelines for admission into Ph.D.
The University is committed to provide appropriate teaching and learning facilities in the
campus. It has a balanced blend of young and experienced pool of qualified and dedicated
faculty members with exposure to various reputed learning and research institutes in India and
abroad. A few of them have been awarded for their academic distinctions. The university is
already in the process of filling the vacant faculty positions. Owing to shortage of faculty, the
University engaged 113 guest faculty and 17 visiting professors in the current session. The
existing faculty members are encouraged to participate in orientation/refresher courses besides
workshops/seminars/conferences to keep themselves abreast with the recent developments in
their subject areas. A good number of faculty members have been resource persons in
Workshops/Seminars/ Conferences organized by external professional agencies.
Each department prepares the teaching plan and time table for PG/M,Phil. (central time
table for UG courses) prior to the beginning of each semester. The lecture method of teaching is
by far the most common among teachers, supplemented by laboratory training, fieldwork,
projects, participative seminars which help the development of creativity among students. ICT
enabled teaching practices have been adopted by several faculty members. Students are also
exposed to external faculty through invited talks/lectures. The performance of students is
evaluated continuously through internal assessments.
The University has taken several steps to improve the examination process and
evaluation system. In general, all UG questions are set outside while it is 50% for PG
programmes and rest is set internally. The evaluation of answer script is done by both internal
and external examiners on 50:50 basis. With the provision for showing answer books to students,
greater transparency have been infused in evaluation and assessment process of all programmes.
6|Pa ge
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
The University takes all possible steps for timely completion of evaluation process and
publication of results, except in case of unavoidable circumstances. In order to ensure timely
publication of results, the conduct of examinations has been decentralized.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
After the first batch of faculty recruitment in 2010, the University has given top priority
to the research component in its educational system. With proper encouragement and support
from the university, the faculty with positive bent of mind for research has been able to get
individual projects from different funding agencies. It also helps to establish research
collaborations with external Institutions/Laboratories and has succeeded in earning several
sponsored projects from various governmental agencies.
The research activities of Ravenshaw University are mainly through M.Phil./Ph.D.
programmes and sponsored projects. Besides, project work has been made as a compulsory
component in all PG curricula to create interest in research among the students. The University
has already adopted M.Phil./Ph.D. guidelines framed as per UGC regulations 2009.
During last five years (2010-15), 36 research projects worth over Rs. 4.167 crores were
completed and in all about 32 new sponsored research Projects worth over Rs.6.81 crores were
sanctioned. Despite limited faculty strength, some departments have been able to attract research
funds as well as earn national recognitions and special assistance funds such as the UGC-SAP or
DST-FIST. During the assessment period four departments of University have received grants of
Rs. 4.49 crores under DST-FIST and Rs. 0.57 crores under UGC-SAP programme.
Based on the strength and expertise of the faculty, each department has also identified the
Trust area of research to address some of the emerging need of the society. A few faculty
members have been recognized for their research by awarding prestigious Commonwealth and
Raman fellowships for higher research in abroad. Although intensive research started from 2010,
the University has an impressive publication record with 1116 research publications referred
journals during last five years with impact factor and citation index as high as 30.4 and 1300,
respectively. In addition, 174 books have also been published by the faculty members of various
departments. The University has already established collaborations with scientists, scholars and
researchers of more than 25 national level institutions besides a few international institutes for
collaborative research in emerging areas of mutual interest. The University is now actively
taking steps to strengthen other components of research like filling of patent, consultancy and
more collaborations with national and international institutes/universities especially to enhance
the research funding. Various departments of the University have organized 7 International and
35 National as well as State level Seminars/conference/workshops during last five years to keep
the students and staff aware of recent developments in relevant areas.
The extension activities of this University are mostly undertaken by the DSW, NSS, YRC
and NCC besides the involvement of some departments, student societies and alumni association
in such activities. Organization of blood donation and health camps, awareness programmes on
AIDS/HIV, Autism, Road safety, Swacha Bharat, eco-consciousness etc., literacy-drive,
observance of important days, personality development etc. are a few among different extension
activities taken up during last five years. A sense of belongingness to the institution, intellectual
7|Pa ge
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
honesty, commitment to teaching, social bonding and national duties are some of the institutional
social responsibilities that are inculcated in the teachers and students.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The present campus of the University is spread over an area of 81.06 acres. After the
upgradation of Ravenshaw College to University, it has paid special attention not only to create
new physical infrastructure but also to renovate/upgrade the existing infrastructure through
proper planning and phase wise execution from its own funds as well as funds received from
UGC and state government. The Seven Pillar of Wisdom (Convention Hall with sitting capacity
1200 and three annexes with cumulative sitting capacity of 900), New Science block,
Administrative block, Sports complex, and two new hostels are a few among the new
infrastructure developed during last five years in the existing campus. Besides massive
renovation/repair works (civil/electrical) of old buildings have been carried out by the Public
Works Department, Govt. of Odisha in last five years to give them a fresh look as the old
academic building is a 100 years old heritage structure. The heritage look of the building as well
as of the campus has been taken care of through experts during renovation. Besides the State
Government has allocated 126.40 acres to develop a second campus (Mahanadi Campus) of the
University, which is now given priority.
All the common facilities are available in the present campus to cater to the needs of the
faculty and students. These include health center, bank, post office, internet/Wi-Fi, photocopy,
etc., besides 6 boys and 7 girls hostels with capacity for 1184 and 1981 inmates, respectively.
The University is committed to improve the teaching-learning process with modern
teaching aids and research equipment. Accordingly efforts have been taken to upgrade/equip
some of the classrooms and seminar halls with modern teaching aids like LCD with
Laptop/Desktops, interactive smart-board etc. Wherever possible the student laboratories have
been upgraded. Adequate facilities in terms of physical infrastructure and equipment have been
developed for research with the grants received from UGC under XII Plan, Departmental
research grant (UGC-SAP, DST-FIST), and sponsored research projects besides State
government grants. The optimum use of the infrastructural facilities is also ensured by sharing it
on inter- and intra-departmental levels.
The major requirements of learning resources are met through Kanika Library which has
adequate number text and reference books and other facilities like Kanika reading hall in the
Heritage building with a capacity of 150 student and equipped with AC and Wi-Fi connectivity,
designated disability students room with scanner, Braille Printer and Braille books for visually
challenged students, digital library with 50 computers for student access, UGC-INFOTECH
digital library consortia for e-resource etc. In order to facilitate the needs of students, the Kanika
library has been kept open to extended hours and also during vacations. Besides the Kanika
Library, most of the departments have seminar libraries to meet immediate need of the students
and faculty.
The University has 1 GBPs link under NMEICT with NKN connectivity. All academic
departments, administrative sections, Kanika library, hostels etc. have LAN connectivity through
fiber-optics/UTP cables. Besides the central computer facility in Computer Science department,
8|Pa ge
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
reasonably good number of computers are provided to each department and section to meet the
IT needs.
The University has created adequate physical and infrastructural facilities for games and
sports which operate under the guidance of Sports Officer. Special facilities include a large
playground, track fields, grounds for football and cricket beside sports complex for indoor games
and gym facility. Ravenshaw University ground has also been used to train the visually impaired
students for the Cricket World Cup for the Blind, 2014 and the team won the title.
There is a continuous effort in augmenting infrastructure and requirements of all the
Departments/section through the offices of Development officer, OSD of second campus and
PHD/Electrical units to plan for building construction and maintenance work.
Criterion V: Students Support and Progression
Students support is an integral part of the University academic programmes. Every year
the University publishes and makes available the updated prospectus to provide information with
regard to criteria for admission, rules and regulations, facilities available, etc. The overall
students support and progression are monitored by the office of Chairperson, Council of Deans
while the Chief Warden and Wardens looks after admission of students in different hostels and
their day to day supervision. The DSW also extends supports for different student activities like
information for scholarship, providing career guidance and counselling, promoting placement
opportunities, organising academic and cultural programmes for participation in different events
etc. In addition, each faculty is assigned a group of students for academic (like seminar, project
and other activities) and career-related counselling. The guidance and placement assistane are
also provided at the department level through a faculty member assigned the responsibility as
placement advisor.
The Training & Placement Cell with a placement coordinator is actively functioning in
the University which facilitated on campus placement of 2188 students during last five years.
Besides, coaching for NET/GATE and other examinations are provided out of financial
assistance of UGC. During the last five years 179 students qualified NET/GATE, 207 students
were placed through UPSC/OPSC besides placement of more than 200 students in banking,
corporate sectors, school teachers, etc.
Every year a large number of students (about 50%) receive financial assistance through
different scholarships, fellowships of state and central governments. Special assistances to
students belonging to ST/SC/DA/Minority categories as well as wards of
mining/bidi/construction labourers are also provided. All women, SC, ST and DA students enjoy
complete tuition fee waiver. Free lodging and boarding facilities are also provided to some DA
students on special request.
The University has all the major requirements of an educational institution like the
Grievance Redressal Cell, Gender Sensitization Committee Against Sexual Harassment
(GSCASH), Anti-Ragging Committee, Equal Opportunity Cell, etc. The Students Union and
Athletic Club under direct supervision of Chairperson, Council of Deans organize various interdepartmental cultural and sports events which provide opportunities to students for participation,
9|Pa ge
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
improvement their capabilities, personality and leadership development. Besides, the
participation of students in co- and extra-curricular activities (debate, sports, and cultural
competitions) at different level of events is significant and a few of them could win
prizes/medals in state/inter-University level competitions and bring laurels to the University.
The University has recently started a centralized Alumni Association ‘Ravenshaw
Alumni’ to create a multigenerational community and online platform that nurture the
Ravenshavians’ spirit of liberation through knowledge and to transform lives through sustainable
support and action. Besides, most of the departments have their own alumni associations which
normally meet once a year. In some departments, they help in placement and also provide
financial help for prizes/incentive to students and to develop infrastructure.
The students’ progression has been satisfactory in this University. The dropout is very
negligible and most of the students pursue for higher studies. A good number of alumni after the
formation of University in 2006, have been able to establish themselves in different areas of
administration, science and technology, management, commerce, industries, etc.
Criterion VI: Governance and Leadership and Management
The structural aspects of the Governance and Leadership of the University have been
designed as per rules stated in the Ravenshaw University Act and Orissa University First Statute,
which govern the constitution of various statutory bodies like Executive Council, Senate, and
Academic Council. The Vice Chancellor of the University, the Chief Executive of the University
management system, is assisted by the Registrar for general administration, the Comptroller of
Finance (COF) for financial management and Controller of Examinations (COE) for examination
affairs of the University. The Chairperson, Council of Deans looks after all the academic
programmes with the support of Deans of different faculty and Heads of different departments.
Besides, the University has several committees and advisory bodies as well as finance and
review committees which help the University to identify its academic, administrative and fiscal
needs, shortcomings and lacunae by taking into account knowledge, expertise and experience of
the members of such bodies/ committees. The University also entrusts different academic and
administrative responsibilities to faculty members from time to time as a part of University’s
participatory and decentralized management systems.
Within the prescribed structural and functional framework, the University has made some
efforts during last five years to improve the efficiency of administrative practices and to enhance
the relevance of its current academic programmes. In terms of academic aspects, changes like
designing need based curricula, introduction of CBCS both in UG and PG levels and
implementation UGC 2009 regulations for M.Phil./Ph.D. programmes are worth mentioning. In
addition, some steps have also been taken to reform the admission process and functioning of the
examination system. Quality of academic and administrative activities has been monitored
through Student Feedbacks at the end of each course and the Annual Performance Self-Appraisal
Report of each Faculty member and Appraisal for administrative staff. The University makes
best possible effort recruit competent faculty with strict adherence to UGC and state government
guidelines. However, shortage of teaching staff due to delay in appointment of sanctioned faculty
10 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
positions limits the execution of certain plan in time. The University has outsourced about 50
persons to support various sections/departments.
The University has given priority to develop adequate computing equipment with
professional software, round-the-clock internet facilities, laboratories with optimum research
facility, classrooms with modern teaching aids, etc. The University has a separate section for
R&D to facilitate processing and implementation of research proposals In order to overcome
financial constraints due to very low tuition fees of students and insufficient funds from
government, the management of finance is to be done judiciously to sustain the growth of the
University without compromising the quality.
The University has a formal policy to ensure quality of teaching and research of the
faculties, whose performance is reviewed by the Internal Quality Assurance Cell. The University
is also in the process of preparation short and long term perspective plan for development of
second campus which will be helpful to make a speedy progress in future.
Criterion VII: Innovations and Best Practices
Innovations and adoption of best practices greatly influence the overall growth and
functioning of a University. Ravenshaw University has taken several measures in the last five
years in translating some of innovative ideas into reality and has made sincere efforts to adopt
new practices for eco-friendly campus (energy conservation, carbon neutrality, plantation and
waste management), grievance redressal systems (GSCASH, anti-ragging cell, equal opportunity
cell etc.) along with traditional best practices like discipline, professional ethics, excellence in
teaching and research, selflessness, honesty etc. The University has also introduced some
transformative and innovative options in administration, academics including reforms in
admission and examination processes, research and extensions activities which have produced
definite tangible benefits on the functioning of the University.
In order to evaluates the academic and administrative activities of the University on
regular basis and formulate strategies, the University conducts a meeting of Vice Chancellor
with Deans, HODs and other officers on every Monday. This practice has not only helped the
University to provide faster solutions to many outstanding/present issues through deliberation
but also to make future planning in different areas. Among other best practices, the release of a
part of the overhead of research projects helped the faculty to establish their research labs for
better research outputs through publications and dissemination of research findings.
The University has been successfully marching ahead into the globalised era to achieve
its goals and objectives through imparting quality education to youths for the development of
manpower commensurate with the needs of industry, commerce and society as a whole. The
University looks forward to seeking better and more comprehensive social accreditation,
which will be based on value based judgment through an objective process of evaluation,
assessment and accreditation.

Research
Project work is a mandatory activity of all PG programmes of the University in terms of
project in the last semester to acquire first hand training in research. Research methodology with
computer applications is a part of all M.Phil./Ph.D. courses along with research based
publications as per UGC guidelines. Workshops on research methodology are often organized
for research students.
1.1.4 To what extent does the University use the guidelines of the regulatory bodies for
developing and/or restructuring the curricula? Has the University been
instrumental in leading any curricular reform which has created a national impact?
The University ensures adoption of guidelines of different regulatory bodies like
UGC/AICTE while developing the curricula. The directives of such bodies are sent to respective
BoS for reference. About 80% of the contents in various courses are as per model syllabi of
regulatory bodies and other renowned educational institutions. The remaining 20% is designed as
per availability of expertise in the department, with topics in frontier areas and also keeping the
local/ regional needs in mind.
The curricula of some of professional academic programs like ITM, IST, JMC, Rural
Development, International Studies, and Public Health etc. are well appreciated by various other
institutions.
Many of our faculty members are active members of BoS of other Universities in framing
the syllabi and also design common UG syllabi in some subjects for Odisha state.
1.1.5 Does the University interact with industry, research bodies and the civil society in
the curriculum revision process? If so, how has the University benefited through
interactions with the stakeholders?
Yes, the University interacts with industry, research bodies and civil society in the
process of curriculum revision as well as design. Research personnel from several research
organisation/institutes like IMMT, CRRI, ILS, IMA, IOP, RPRC, RMRC, OMC, GSI, NCDS
etc. are also part of BoS of different subjects to provide necessary inputs in the revision process.
For professional courses, the faculty/personnel from corporate offices, business institutes
like IMFA, Aditya Birla, IMGENEX, XIMB, have also benefited the University in various forms
related to curriculum development.
University has taken special interest for formal MoU with different organisations in this
regard. For example, an MoU has been signed between the University and National Stock
Exchange of India Limited (NSE) on 21st June 2013 wherein the University offered a Five Year
Integrated MBA (Financial Markets) which includes NCFM modules from NSE. Feedbacks
from alumni working in different organisations during different alumni meets are also taken into
consideration in curricular revision. Some of the benefits in such interactions are:
•
In the form of access of students to their laboratories/institutes for undertaking
project/field works. Such interaction facilitates student-internship programs in
professional courses and enhances employment opportunities for them.
•
Improvisation in course curriculum particularly for technical / professional courses.
•
Continuous input from the experts from the industries not only help to improve the
syllabus but also help the students of professional courses in job market which is
reflected in increasing trend of placement of students in the recent years.

3.2.1 What are the financial provisions made in the University budget for supporting
students’ research projects?
Although there is no separate budget allocated for students’ research, the University
supports the students for research activities in the following ways.
•
Each department provides required infrastructural facilities/consumables for carrying out
project works at PG and M.Phil. levels. Part of the expenses are met from grant released
by the University to each department as ‘departmental development grant ‘every year.
•
Project/field works form a compulsory component of curriculum of all the disciplines and
administrative supports are given to the students to proceed on the field tour.
•
For students working under different R&D projects and doing research leading to Ph.D
degree, all the expenses are met from the funds allocated in the project.
•
In some departments, there are provisions for award/incentive to students for project
works by alumni association.

3.2.2 Has the University taken any special efforts to encourage its faculty to file for
patents? If so, how many have been registered and accepted?
During the last five years, major efforts by the faculty have been taken to generate
funds from various sources/funding agencies to establish/renovate the research laboratories with
optimum facilities for basic and applied research. Although a good number of research papers
published by the faculty in reputed journals with high impact factor, filing of patent is still
lacking in this University. The University is now emphasising for filing patents/IPR. The
following patent has been filed/published by the faculty
•
S. K. Giri and N.N. Das, A rapid process of magnetite nanoparticles from waste iron ore
tailings, Indian Patent (1315/KOL/2010; Publication Date: 19/10/2012).
3.2.3 Provide the details of ongoing research projects of faculty:
The ongoing projects are sanctioned from various funding agencies like UGC, DBT,
DST, ICSSR, ISRO, BARC, BNRS, etc. during the last five years and the total grant mobilized
from different sources is as given below.
57 funded projects are on-going with a total outlay of Rs. 1333.315 lakhs and the details
are given below.

debates, poetry recitations, quizzes, and other competitions to help them sharpen their
talents and mental faculties.
•
The University provides for a constant interaction with academia and representative from
civil society in the form of lectures and discussions. It strives towards accommodating
their viewpoints, and restructuring the curriculum, accordingly. Some of the teaching
departments are using workshop and case study methods to add to the relevance of their
respective study programmes.
•
Apart from interdisciplinary and interdepartmental collaborative research programmes, as
also those in collaboration with other reputed institutions, the university has taken
important initiatives to forge international linkages and alliances with some premier
educational institutions abroad.
•
Faculty improvement and training programmes at regular intervals have been conducted
by some departments to update teachers with the latest knowledge and skills for the
benefit of their students. In addition, the university encourages faculty members to attend
such programmes organized by Academic Staff Colleges in other universities. Formal
and informal efforts are also made to improve communication and computational skills of
the students.
In inculcating a sound value system among students
In pursuance to the national and state government policies, the university strives for
inculcating sound value system among the students through various activities undertaken by such
organisations as GCASH, NSS and DSW etc. The university creates a culture of respect for high
academic excellence with social equity and gender sensitivity. The university organises various
other programmes in this regard like one motivational talks of eminent personalities, health
camp, blood donation camp etc.
Promoting the Use of Technology and Quest for Excellence
The university has already started using advanced technology in the discharge of its
academic and administrative functions which help in making the system more transparent,
efficient, and reliable. Computerization of administration is in process and the university is on its
way of putting all its activities online, which includes admission process, examination process
and payments. Computerization of all library operations, provision of access to e-journals and
other e-resources, provision of internet facility in all departments etc. are some other ICT-related
initiatives undertaken by the university during the recent past.

•
Internationalization
Yes, the University has a future plan which outlines the development in all the aspects.
This plan articulates the planning process at all levels. The commitment, goals and strategies set
forth in the plan indicate the direction the university will take in order to maintain quality in all
aspects. The university endeavours to pursue the following goals:
o Quality teaching and learning
o Research of international standard
o Access to knowledge
o Effective and transparent administration
o Citizenship development
The vision and mission statement of the university is the underlying principle of the
development strategy. The University has taken a number of initiatives for promoting access and
expansion of higher education during the XI Plan Period. During this period, several new courses
with market potential were introduced by the university. The efforts continued during XII Plan
also. As a result, the students’ intake has significantly increased during the recent past. The share
of female students and particularly those belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and
other weaker sections has also registered a significant growth. Choice-based credit system has
been implemented at both UG and PG levels.
Provision of adequate hostel accommodation to the students is an important challenge
before the university. At present there are six hostels for boys and five hostels for girls with a
total capacity to accommodate 2,500 students. In addition, two new hostels are ready for
occupation – one for boys and one for girls – which will accommodate 500 students each. The
University has already made the teaching and administrative blocks friendly for differently-abled
students. Process of expansion of the facility in the Central Library is already in pipeline. The
University has already established a Women’s Study Centre which undertakes various activities
and outreach programmes to sensitize women apart from offering a full-fledged M. Phil.
Programme. The University has also made significant contributions towards the development of
sports facilities in the form of Gymnasium, complex for indoor and outdoor games etc.
The University has plans to expand ICT enabled technologies in its quest for quality and
excellence in teaching and research. Automation of different wings of administration including
finance, admission, etc. has already begun in phased manner. Online admission has been put in
place, and efforts are on for automatic examination process. From the next semester central
electronic evaluation will start. In order to maintain discipline and make the campus safe for the
university community, surveillance system (CCTV) at key locations has already been installed.
These efforts will certainly help improve the working of the University by bringing in
transparency in administration for all the stakeholders.
6.2.2 Describe the university’s internal organizational structure and decision making
processes and their effectiveness.
According to the University Act and Statute, Vice-Chancellor is the Chief Executive of
Administration and Academics. The Act and Statute provides for such statutory bodies as the
142 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
Senate, the Executive Council, the Academic Council, the Finance Committee, and the Schools.
In addition, other university statutory bodies include Boards of Studies, Subject Research
Committee, Departmental Committees, Library Committee, and Admission Committees. For
monitoring of academic matter, next to Vice-Chancellor is the position of Chairman, Council of
Deans (CCD). Every School is headed by a Dean who supervises academic and administrative
matter of the teaching departments under its jurisdiction. The office of the Dean of a School acts
as link between department concerned and the higher authorities in administration. Registrar is
the head of administration.
On crucial issues/matters, the statutory bodies sometimes constitute committees from
amongst their members and also associate external experts, if the need arises. The
recommendations of the committees are placed on the floor of the respective bodies for
deliberations and final decision. The Councils/Boards/ Committees maintain and monitor
effective co-ordination among various academic and/or supporting units for smooth functioning
of the university. The Vice-Chancellor delegates powers to the senior academic officers on most
of the routine administrative matters. Almost all the decisions are taken by consensus, except
very rarely when a proposal is put to vote. Thus, the decision making processes of the university
are highly democratic.
6.2.3 Does the university have a formal policy to ensure quality? How is it designed,
driven, deployed and reviewed?
Maintaining high standards of teaching, continuous evaluation and evolving new
strategies for quality enhancement, and implementation of quality measures are the main concern
of the university. This is amply reflected in the vision and mission statement of the university. In
pursuance to these objectives and in accordance with NAAC requirement, the Internal Quality
Assurance Cell (IQAC) has been established. Under the overall supervision of the ViceChancellor as its Chairman, IQAC implements quality related measures and monitors its
effectiveness from time to time. The Cell issues instructions to the departments/ offices for
implementation of the decision. The Cell also invites suggestions from the faculty and other staff
for improvement in the delivery of quality education and other office procedures. The Advisory
committee of the IQAC consists of senior faculty members, three outside experts as
representatives of industry and civil society.
The University Act provides for annual audit of administrative and academic wings of the
university. The recommendations of the audit committee are placed before the Vice-Chancellor
for consideration and approval.
6.2.4 Does the university encourage its academic departments to function independently
and autonomously and how does it ensure accountability?
Yes. The university provides full autonomy to the departments in academic matters. Each
teaching department has a head who is appointed for a period of two years on the basis of
seniority-cum-rotation. The Head of the department looks after the academic and administrative
works. The department has a Teachers’ Council with HOD as its Chairman and all the faculty
members.

Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
All academic and administrative decisions of the department are taken in the Teachers’ Council
meeting and the same are executed by the HOD. Each department also has a Board of Studies
which comprises of the HOD and some senior faculty members apart from subject experts from
other universities. All matters related to development of syllabi are first finalized by Teachers’
Council and then approved by Board of Studies for implementation. The BOS appoints paper
setters and examiners for various examinations ranging from UG to Ph.D. Thus the teaching
departments enjoy full autonomy in development of their academic and research programmes,
and in the process of reviewing and restructuring them from time to time to keep in pace with the
emerging demands subject to approval of the Academic Council. The academic accountability of
the departments is ensured through IQAC reports, students’ feedback, overall supervision of the
Dean of the School, etc.
6.2.5 During the last four years, have there been any instances of court cases filed by and
against the institute? What were the critical issues and verdicts of the courts on
these issues?
Yes. The recent past has witnessed the instances of some court cases both in District
Court, Cuttack and High Court of Odisha. These court cases fall under four broad categories. In
the first are included cases that pertain to the process of recruitment of faculty positions in
Ravenshaw University initiated recently. The State Government of Odisha had earlier sanctioned
114 additional teaching posts (Professor, Reader, and Lecturer) to Ravenshaw University. The
university started the recruitment process through publication of advertisement in accordance
with UGC regulations 2010 and 2013 amendment. However due to large number of applications
received, short listing process was done by elevating the minimum qualification. Some of the
applicants who were not shortlisted for interview challenged this move of the university in the
court of law. These cases are under adjudication in Hon’ble High Court of Odisha.
The second category relates to a case filed against Ravenshaw University in the wake of
abolition of some self financing courses under PPP (Public-private-partnership) mode. It may be
noted that such courses were in existence even before Ravenshaw was up-graded into a
university in 2006.However, in view of the UGC circular, Ravenshaw University decided to
abolish these courses under PPP mode, and took over the teaching of all these courses. The
private parties moved to the court of law against the decision taken by the University. After
prolonged hearing both in District court, Cuttack and in High Court of Odisha, judgments in
favour of the University were pronounced. The third category refers to cases filed against the
university in relation to admission process into different courses due to different reasons such as
eligibility criteria or not reporting in due time. No specific order from court of law regarding
these cases has been received. And finally, there are a few cases filed by some non-teaching
staff, who were deployed by the state Government after the erstwhile Ravenshaw College was
upgraded to University regarding their services. There is no specific direction to the University
from any Court of law in this regard.
6.2.6 How does the university ensure that grievances / complaints are promptly attended
to and resolved effectively? Is there a mechanism to analyse the nature of grievances
for promoting better stakeholder relationship?
The university has established a Grievance Redressal Cell headed by a senior faculty
member and representative from students. In addition, the university has also set up a Gender
Sensitisation Committee against Sexual Harassment (GSCASH) which is headed by a female
faculty. There is a provision for elected student representative in GSCASH. There is an antiragging committee of the University to deal with the problems of ragging. The Contact number
147 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
of the members of the committees is uploaded on the university website so that the student
complaints could be dealt with promptly.
The complaints and grievances are immediately looked into by the concerned committee
for disposal. The complaints/ grievances are periodically analysed for effective monitoring of the
problem. These complaints mainly relate to the problems of the staff, students, and other
stakeholders. The grievances of the staff are presented to the university Administration for
necessary action. Other grievances are resolved through mutual discussions and the agreements
so arrived at are religiously implemented.
The Dean, Students Welfare also deals with the grievances of the students and resolves
their welfare issues. The SC/ST Cell looks after the grievances of the students belonging to the
disadvantaged sections of the society.
6.2.7 Does the university have a mechanism for analyzing student feedback on
institutional performance? If yes, what was the institutional response?
The University has student feedback system in place. Feedback from the students is
obtained every semester towards the end of teaching before the students disperse for end
semester examination. Feedback is obtained only from students having attended at least 75
percent of the lectures delivered with the help of a prescribed pro-forma. The students are
required to give their ratings on a four-point scale against select parameters for the university as

6.2.8 Does the university conduct performance audit of the various departments?
The university has been conducting assessment study of its academic and administrative
management since its inception in one form or the other. The CCD holds periodical
discussions/deliberations with the HODs on various academic issues for smooth functioning of
the departments, particularly before the commencement of the new academic session. The ViceChancellor visits each of the teaching departments in every academic session as per schedule
already circulated and takes stock of the performance in the area of teaching and research. This
interaction of the Vice-Chancellor with teachers of individual departments has indeed acted as an
important input in overall improvement in quality of teaching and increase in research output.
Moreover, a committee constituted by the State Government carries out academic and
administrative audit of the university every year. A consolidated Academic and Administrative
Performance Audit Report shall be made available to the Peer Team during its visit.

and non-teaching staff?
The University Statute provides for grant of Study Leave and sabbatical leave to the
teachers for the pursuit of higher education and for availing of teaching and research assignments
in other institutions. The faculty is motivated by the university to attend professional
development courses at other places also.
The university has a facility for offering DCA to teaching and non-teaching staff. The
participants are given instructions in the basics of computer hardware, imparted training in the
use of operating systems such as Windows, and equipped with skills to use application software
such as MS Office. Good knowledge of ICT, and MS Office, particularly, Word, PowerPoint and
Excel, have been made essential qualifications for recruitment to the posts of Clerk-cum-Junior
Data Entry Operators.
6.3.2 What is the outcome of the review of various appraisal methods used by the
university? List the important decisions.
The university has put in place a well-designed convenient ‘performance appraisal report’

basis of such parameters as teaching hours, number of papers taught, number of publications in
the form of research papers/articles and books, conferences attended and papers presented
therein, new curricula designed/developed, participation in extracurricular/ co-curricular
149 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
activities, discharge of duties on account of additional administrative responsibilities assigned by
the university, and other contributions made towards the society.
The reports duly verified by the Heads of respective teaching departments, are evaluated
by the Vice-Chancellor. These reports form an important input at the time of promotion of
respective teachers. The system acts as an important motivating force for an individual faculty
member in enhancing his/her annual contributions. It is an important mechanism for self
introspection with regard to the strengths and weaknesses of the teachers. The performance
appraisal of the non-teaching staff is equally important for efficient running of an institution. The
University has Annual Confidential Report (ACR) system wherein the branch heads make
specific observations based on performance of their juniors. These reports are again placed
before the Reviewing Officer whose remarks are finally carried to convey to the delinquent
employee to see the writing on the wall. Such reports are given due consideration for promotion
and/or confirmation of the non-teaching staff.
6.3.3 What are the welfare schemes available for teaching and non-teaching staff? What
percentage of staff have benefitted from these schemes in the last four years? Give

employees at the time of festivals. Pension Scheme and Defined Pension Scheme for employees
in the service of the University before and after 2006, respectively are available to the employees
of the university. The female employees are entitled for six months Maternity Leave. The
university has made provision for several other types of leave such as Special Casual Leave,
Medical Leave, Half Pay Leave, etc. to meet exigencies and emergencies. Residence on Campus,
Community Centre facilities at very low rates for social ceremonies and without any charge for
some ceremonies, Faculty Club facilities for evening pastime, University Health Centre for free
medical advice, and medical reimbursement for indoor patients etc. are some other welfare
measures available to its employees in the university.

57.31 % the students on the rolls in various teaching departments.
The university endeavours to provide equal opportunities to male and female students in
the matters related to recruitments and admissions. Though there is no separate quota for
admission of girl students, female students outnumber male students in terms of numerical
strength in almost all courses in the university. Women teachers are given due representation in
various committees and other governance activities of the university administration. In various
regular activities such as cultural programmes, adventure programmes, and sports programmes
representation of girl students is encouraged by the university. The university administration
150 | P a g e

INNOVATIONS AND BEST PRACTICES
7.1
Environment Consciousness
7.1.1 Does the university conduct a Green Audit of its campus?
Though the University has not conducted any formal Green Audit in recent years,
environment consciousness and green campus are enshrined in the mission of the University. To
make the University campus clean and green, two beautiful big lawns - one in front of the main
building of the University and another one surrounded by the main buildings of the University
are maintained regularly. Tree plantation and nurturing plants is one of the regular non-academic
pursuits carry out by faculty members and students. The students and faculty are encouraged by
the NSS unit to keep the campus green by planting more tress and making the campus
plastic free zone. There are 16 NSS Units in the University actively participating and organising
different awareness program for green campus, and energy savings consciousness.
7.1.2 What are the initiatives taken by the university to make the campus eco-friendly?
Following initiatives have been/are being taken by the University to make the campus
eco-friendly.
a. Energy conservation: Architectures of all buildings promote energy conservation naturally
as they are constructed in a way to ensure adequate lighting and ventilation. Maximum
departments are well structured and hardly need any artificial lighting which helps a lot in
conservation of electricity. Old electric appliances are replaced with new energy efficient
appliances to consume less energy. University also promotes the purchase of energy
efficient certified (EEC) electrical and electronic appliances to save energy.
b. Use of renewable energy: Presently no such facility is available in the campus. However,
the University is exploring the possibility of converting its outdoor electric light points into
solar ones and conversion of biomass into useable energy.
c. Waste Water Management: One of the most important measures adopted in the University
is waste water management through micro-tunnel. All the buildings including hostels and
staff quarters are connected with the integrated micro-tunnel system for waste water
management. The main objective of this system is to channelize and recycle the waste water
through an integrated system.
d. Check dam construction: No scope of checking dam construction here.
e. Efforts for Carbon neutrality:
• The campus as such houses a very large number of trees. The University takes care of
greenery and carbon sequestration on the campus by regular maintenance under the
supervision of Development officer. More tree plantation is done regularly or as annual
plantation drive like Vanomahotsav by NSS, Red Cross and faculty club in the campus
towards carbon neutrality.
• University promotes e-circulars/notices, e-mail based communications/ announcements to
save papers.
• The dead leaves and the waste papers are not allowed to be put on fire. The leaves are
buried in the soil itself and the papers are disposed off.
f. Plantation: The NSS unit has played a major role in plantation activities by conducting for
plantation of 5500 trees in last five years.
157 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
g.
Hazardous waste management: All science departments manage the disposal of
hazardous wastes as per following standard rules and norms as far as practicable. The
University also promotes for plastic- polythene free zone campus to make campus ecofriendly.
h. E-waste management: Every department stores the e-waste till sufficient material is
available for auctioning to metal scrap dealers. In some cases like computers and
peripherals, batteries etc. are exchanged with new purchases. Some parts are cannibalized
for recycling in working instruments.
i. Conservation of existing rich biodiversity: The rich diverse environment of the campus is
a living laboratory and the students of biology often use it for conducting research exercises.
j. Any other, please specify: Awareness is created among students and staff in natureconservation and eco-development and the students are sensitized on the rational use of
power and other measures to reduce global warming and to improve carbon credit.
7.2
Innovations
7.2.1. Give details of innovations introduced during the last Five years which have created
a positive impact on the functioning of the university.
The University has introduced various transformative and innovative options in
administration, academics, research and extensions activities during the past years. These have
produced definite tangible benefits on the functioning of the University. The noteworthy
innovative practices adopted by university are as follows:
•
Administrative Leadership: In recent years, the University has opted for Administrative
Decentralisation to inculcate a sense of responsibility and belongingness among the
different levels of organisational setup. In this process decision making power has been
shifted to different officials, schools/departments to improve administrative efficiency,
ensure adequate representation to the lower levels of governance and above all to increase
the accountability. Financial power as well as the decision making power has been sifted
to various committees. Optimal use of resources and setting of higher goals are vital parts
of the strategies. For promoting leadership quality among students the University has
conducted two Model United Nations (MUN) seminars in month of July 2014 and 2015
where students from other University participated.
•
Academic: During the last five years, the course structures of various programmes have
been thoroughly restructured with the help of experts from different national level
institute and implemented the same in all department. The University is first in the state
to implement CBCS in UG level and effective from the session 2014-15. UG syllabi as
per UGC format has been now restructured and will be made effective from the session
2016-17. The University conducted several sessions of meetings to expose the faculty
members, examination staff, and others before implementation of CBCS. The CBCS in
PG courses has been introduced from the session 2015-16. Academic flexibility to
department, adoption of different teaching methodologies and introduction of need based
job oriented interdisciplinary courses are some of the initiative taken in last few years.
The impact of such reforms is visible from the significant success of students in getting
jobs in the last four years.
•
Examination Reforms: Anticipating that the CBCS mode of teaching would bring in
increase in examination workloads, the University planned to innovate in this area
simultaneously along with curricular reforms. Measures like implementation of applying
for various forms online; payment gateway implementation in online mode, download of
158 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
admit card, digitization of answer booklets and digital evaluation of answer booklets have
been taken and plan for more such steps are being worked out in the direction to enhance
work accuracy and efficiency. Publication online Student results with login facilities for
Individual students
•
Creation and Use of IT / ICT facilities in various activities of University sections,
department and library in particular to improve the work efficiency and to make teachinglearning more effective.
•
Promotion for research by providing physical infrastructure facilities and financial
helps for developing labs as per requirement.
•
Enrichment and value added courses by introducing courses such as B.Sc. in ITM,
IST, ETC and HHA as to help the students to acquire the knowledge to provide quality
care and to enhance their job opportunities. Besides the University is providing Diploma
in Computer Application (DCA) to all students at a subsidized rate.
•
Multiple entrance centres for admission: To promote inclusiveness and providing
opportunities for education in the backward regions of the State, the University is
conducting admission entrance test from 2013 onwards at Bhawanipatna in Kalahandi
besides the main centre at Cuttack. This facility encourages the students of that region to
appear the test easily in their local area.
7.3
Best Practices
7.3.1
Details of any two best practices which have contributed to better academic and
administrative functioning of the university.
Best Practice 1
Title: Monday meeting of Deans, HODs and other Officers of the University
Goal / Objectives
What are the objectives / intended outcomes of this “best practice” and what are the
underlying principles or concepts of this practice (in about 100 words)
The aims of this practice are
• To strengthen the academic and administrative functioning
• To follow up the action of the functionaries on regular basis
• Review of different academic and administrative responsibilities
• To evolve new suggestions and mechanisms for further development of University
• To make a platform for co-ordination among different officials to make the job done.
The Context
What were the contextual features or challenging issues that needed to be addressed in
designing and implementing this practice (in about 150 words)?
It has provided a new impetus to develop areas which are more encompassing and
supportive to develop inter and multi-disciplinary culture and co-ordinated action.
Since its inception University has made conscious efforts towards nurturing a mindset of
teachers and students conducive to professional attitude.
Getting the co-ordinated action to complete the specific job timely and effectively.
159 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
The Practice
Describe the practice and its uniqueness in the context of India higher education. What were
the constraints / limitations, if any, faced (in about 400 words)?
Since constant monitoring and co-ordination are very essential, the University is highly
conscious of quality enhancement and quality sustenance on par with the progress of technology
in keeping with other autonomous institutions. The University generates knowledge for
dissemination and so its main focus is on quality research for which coordination and timely
completion of the work is necessary. It has created a research ambience through strengthening
infrastructure facilities, motivating staff members and guiding them to acquire grants from the
funding agencies to launch on research undertakings through minor or major research
projects through follow up action and review. All these decisions are taken with co-ordination
approach through Monday Meeting. The University system is very hierarchal for which a proper
co-ordination among different officials is required for timely and effectively completion of the
work. So a weekly meeting with all officials facilitates these things smoothly.
•
To strengthen the academic and administrative functioning.
•
To follow up the action of the functionaries on regular basis and review of different
academic and administrative responsibilities is required for effective management for
better output.
•
To evolve new suggestions, ideas and mechanisms for further development of University
and to make a platform for the co-ordination among different officials to make the job
done is the need of the present system.
Evidence of success
•
Discussion and Implementation of CBCS in UG and PG, UGC 2009 Ph.D. guidelines.
•
Distribution of funds available from different sources to different departments and section
for regular and special needs like development of major facility/equipment (For example
the shortfall of fund for purchase of 400 MHz NMR has been met from the University fund
based on the decision of Monday meeting).
•
Approval of matters relating to purchase of various essential items like CCTV, on line
payment of dues, examination reforms etc.
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
Please identify the problems encountered and resources required to implement the practice (in
about 150 words).
The major problems encountered in implementing the decisions taken in various meeting
are mainly due to (i) shortage of faculty and supporting staff to take up/completion of different
jobs in time (ii) insufficient campus area, floor space and physical infrastructure. The resource
available from different sources to the University is often not sufficient to meet fund requirement
in implementing the works relating to development of infrastructure and physical facilities in the
campus
Best Practice 2:
Title: Release a part of overhead of research projects to faculty
Goal / Objectives
What are the objectives / intended outcomes of this “best practice” and what are the
underlying principles or concepts of this practice (in about 100 words)
160 | P a g e
Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
The primary objectives of this practice are:
•
To develop research bases in various departments and to revive the lost research culture
in the University for better research outputs.
•
To encourage and prepare the faculty members for undertaking minor and major research
projects from different funding agencies.
•
To regain its glorious past in the field of research and to fulfil the vision of this
University as a Research
The Context
What were the contextual features or challenging issues that needed to be addressed in
designing and implementing this practice (in about 150 words)?
Ravenshaw College was upgraded to a Unitary University in the year 2006. In the pretransition and post transition periods, the academics and research activities have gone down
significantly for various reasons. After first batch of faculty recruitment in 2010, the University
has started this practice as a part of several other measures to establish to research bases and
improve/revive the research culture of University.
The Practice
Describe the practice and its uniqueness in the context of India higher education. What were
the constraints / limitations, if any, faced (in about 400 words)?
Research is considered as backbone for an institution imparting higher education. It
should go neck to neck along with other academic programmes for recognition of the institution
at National and International levels. With the advent of sophistication in research, establishment
of research base with adequate facilities is essential to meet the standard of present day research
and visible outputs. As the research activities in Ravenshaw University were in dormant stage
from 2006 to 2010, the renovation of research laboratories and creation of optimum facility was
highly essential to regain the rich research culture.
Keeping the above in view and limited options for getting government funds for
establishment and renovation of laboratories in new Universities, the University has adopted this
practice to release part of the overhead of individual research grant to the faculty for renovation
of labs. Often the fund released is not sufficient for renovation with optimum facilities. More
funds are required to create optimum research base in the University for carrying out advanced
research in different fields.
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
Please identify the problems encountered and resources required to implement the practice (in
about 150 words).
The state government fund released to the University is meant mainly to meet the salary
component and other essential works. The fund released by UGC during plan period under R&D
head is also not sufficient for research activities especially to establishment/renovation labs.
Although release of part of the overhead to concerned faculty helps to create a minimum
research base, the fund is not enough to meet all the requirements. More funds from different
possible sources are required for effective implementation of this practice.

is issued at the time of result and it is valid up to the convocation. Students can use this degree
as original degree up to the convocation.
Carry on Facility
Those students one who participate in National level Sports activities, have the right to get Carry
on facilities at first year. This facility is provided only to avoid the academic loss of such
students and also to motivate & inspire students to participate in Sports activities.
Grievance redressal Mechanism (GRM)
Those students who have any doubt or any complaint about their assessment of answer sheets
can apply for re-checking/re-addition of answer sheets. Such answer sheets are re-checked by a
faculty member of the concerned department very transparently who tries to give appropriate
judgment to students.
Following facilities:
o Overtime allowance facilities.
o In extra time of work, the facilities of Tea, refreshment etc.
Reformation of Examination
CGPA & P.G. Courses
Elimination of subjectivity to the possible extent in the marking system is accorded by
introducing the grading system by converting marks into grade. Marking of the answer scripts is
done by the scheme of evaluation provided by the paper setter along with an analytical marking
scheme.

Detail five major Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Challenges (SWOC) of
the department:
Strengths

in English, and have several publications, both national and international, to their
credit.
• Students, who top the selection list, have been opting for English Honours.
• Publication of Annual Journal of the department

Weaknesses
• Absence of required infrastructure in terms of classrooms and equipment for a strong
student contingent such as ours.
• Absence of research projects

equips students with the skills necessary for taking up entry-level jobs in the field of
media writing.

• Opening of courses in Computational Linguistics and Comparative Literature
Challenges

Challenges:
Now the greatest challenge before us is to conduct fruitful research catering to the needs
of the society.

Was any need assessment exercise undertaken before the development of new
programme(s)? If so, highlight the methodology:
Soon after Ravenshaw was upgraded into a University in November 2006, the department
introduced full-time M.Phil. programme w.e.f. the session 2007-08. However, no formal
need assessment exercise was undertaken before the introduction of the programme.
42.
Does the department obtain feedback from
i. Faculty on curriculum as well as teaching-learning-evaluation? If yes, how does
the department utilize the feedback? : Yes. The University has organised two
Curriculum Reform Workshops – each of two days duration – in quick succession in
2012 and 2014. In this workshop subject experts from different universities in the
country were invited. The first session on Day-1 in the workshop was devoted to
presentations by subject experts invited from different universities and institutes of
national importance. This was followed by a visit of subject experts to concerned
individual departments. There the experts deliberated upon the existing course
curricula with the faculty. Based on these deliberations, syllabi for UG, PG and M.
Phil. courses in the department were developed as the final outcome of the workshop.

Detail five major Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Challenges (SWOC) of
the department:
Strength
1. Students admitted each year are highly motivated with good academic career. Most of
them are INSPIRE scholars.
2. The faculty members have good research expertise with international rapport.
3. The Department of Physics is a centenary department having international
acknowledgement.
4. The Alumni are internationally acclaimed researchers, academicians, administrators,
statesman etc.
5. Projects have been received in theory as well as experimental physics and successfully
completed in time.
6. Department is organising national seminars on frontier areas of research frequently.
Weakness
1. The present Ravenshaw University is an incarnation of earlier Ravenshaw Autonomous
College. Since it is a new university, there are some structural snags which are gradually
getting remedied.
2. As there is no seed money, it is difficult to retain good scholars though they are highly
motivated to pursue their career in Physics.
3. Due to lack of funding e.g. UGC-SAP, the department is facing difficulties to upgrade the
facilities like practical classes, to introduce smart classrooms to students.
4. The department does not have an e-library which is hampering research activities.
5. Most of the students are from rural background. Hence they lack communication skills in
English.
6. The department office runs without required number of manpower ( no ministerial staff
like store keeper, steno/clerk or data entry operator etc.).
Opportunities
1. Introduction of smart courses at UG and PG level to make the students cope with present
day competitions.
2. Promotion of extracurricular activities.
3. Department holds debates, seminars, essay competitions, publishes an annual magazine
(Bigbang) and a wall magazine (Rainbow) to nurture the scientific talents of the students.
4. The department has an Alumni association (Association of Ravenshaw Physics Alumni),
which is actively organising competitions, seminars for students to motivate them.
5. The Department provides a B Sc Computer Science Hons. Programme which is available
to even UG students.

The faculty members have collectively endeavoured to sensitise the post- graduate
students with new discourses of knowledge specifically focussing on new paradigm shifts
in historiography. In tune with these objectives, archaeological excavation of Talagarh
has started. The faculty members have been in forefront of research in areas such as
public health and medicine in colonial and post-colonial India, contemporary social
movements and identity issues, epigraphy and Buddhist archaeology etc. Recognising the
contribution to historical research, the Indian History Congress has nominated Prof C.P
Nanda as the President of the Modern India Section in the coming session to be held in
December 2015 and Dr. L.K Mishra has been nominated as the Executive Member of the
Indian History Congress. Dr Subrata Acharya is considered as a foremost expert in
Odishan epigraphy in India and outside and has recently participated in World Sanskrit
Conference at Bangkok, Thailand.

Detail five major Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Challenges (SWOC) of
the department:
Strength
i. Experienced faculty with excellent academic record
ii. Offiering colboative course on “Psychological Foundations of Innovative Product

papers

Self Study Report (Cycle 1): Ravenshaw University, Cuttack-753003, Odisha
v. Provision for visiting professorship to allow our students and faculty to be exposed to the
academic and research experiences of reputed retired professors.
Weakness
i. Inadequate faculty strength because of vacant faculty positions
ii. Too much class load and academic administrative engagement of faculty leave less time
for research.
iii. Inadequate floor space and infrastructure for separate classrooms, library and other
facility.
iv. Lack of funded research projects
Opportunities
i. The cooperative administration is a great asset to the department.
ii. Student participation in departmental functions and upkeep of the departmental library is
a plus point. We can exploit student energy for strengthening the departmental functions
and instructional programme.
iii. The UGC support and the support of other funding agencies can be more meaningfully
utilized for strengthening research and departmental outreach programmes.
iv. The Sister disciplines like Education and Sociology can be well connected to the
instructional programme of the department.
v. Connecting the alumni of the department/university to the departmental ongoing
programmes through timely get-togethers can be done to seek their adoption of
departmental programmes and help in instituting student and faculty incentive plans.
Challenges
i. To open M.Phil. programme to meet the pressing demand from students and faculty of
psychology in the state
ii. The inflow of students to the counselling centre requires us to strengthen the counselling
centre in terms of human resources and logistics.
iii. Upgradation of library
iv. Organisation of more seminars and workshops both within and across the disciplines for
sharing and dissemination of knowledge.
v. Publishing a rsearch journal in Psychology to highlight state and national level research
contributions
52.
