Jagdam College under Jai Prakash University is poised for National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) gradation.
A three-member NAAC peer team inspected the college for three days till August 27. The team interacted with students, teachers and non-teaching staff. College principal Dr Pramendra Ranjan told The Telegraph the peer team has submitted its report to its headquarters in Bangalore and has shared the report with the principal too. The report is affirmative and believes the college should get A grade for its overall performance, Pramendra said.
Prof N.K. Durga Prasad, ex-vice chancellor of Krishna University, Guntur, headed the accreditation team. Two other members included Rajendra Sakarodkar and Pranav Shandilya. The team assessed every aspect of the college for three days and expressed satisfaction. The results would come within three months, the principal said.
Pramendra said Jagdam College would become the only college under JP University and the 23rd in Bihar to get NAAC accreditation.
The principal said that in his exit speech, Durga Prasad expressed satisfaction and hinted at the college getting a good gradation. He specially praised the Holi Milan Samaroh and Id Milan Samaroh and Parents Teachers meet organised by the college and stressed on introducing more professional courses. He also advised teachers to be more research-oriented. Pramendra said NAAC accreditation was a must for all colleges and universities. In the absence of such accreditation, all kinds of financial aid and salary would be stopped. After NAAC gradation, the aid would increase manifold, he said.
