Development initiatives
The planning model of the Southwestern State College incorporates five interrelated cycle of planning
activities- Strategic Planning, Annual Planning, Monthly Planning, Quality Improvement Planning and
Strategic Planning
The college has just made a frame work of strategic planning. It covers a period of 20 years. The college
initiates to develop different activities up to 20 years time. It drives specialized plans for various areas of
the college development.
Annual Planning
Annual planning is a part of strategic planning. So annual planning is carried out to fulfill strategic goals
and objectives stated in strategic plan. Annual planning process initiates to develop next year‘s plan and it
evaluates previous year‘s activities too.
Monthly Planning
Monthly planning is a part of annual planning. Every month we have a meeting of College Management
Board and decide to do some initiative activities which are necessary to develop. College Management
Board, faculties, staffs and students are involved in monthly planning process.
Quality Improvement Planning
Quality improvement planning is an integrated part of the college planning model. This process draws
some inputs from annual planning and monthly planning process mostly focusing on vision, mission and
goals. This planning model envisions total quality improvement planning of the college.
Continues evaluation and review of the plan is to identify real problems which are arising day by day. So
this is the ultimate success of strategic and annual planning. College Management Board initiates to
identify real problems and make progress reports for the submission to College Management Team to
review strategic plan. This process is very important to develop over all strategic planning.
Self-Study Report Preparation
How it is understood
Due to the several reasons, there is a huge gap in policy endorsed by the government of Nepal and its
implementation. Nepal‘s education sector is not away from this fact hence higher education institutions
are facing such problems to practice the policy in reality. In this context, the initiation of awarding the
accreditation by the UGC to these institutions is highly appreciable as it supports to increase the quality of
education and the education service delivery in Nepal. This self study report prepared by SWSC and
submitted to the UGC is the product of this initiative so as to get the accreditation. This report reflects the
real situation and status of SWSC including the facilities and service, major highlights, challenges along
with the information related to the eight criteria and benchmarks. Though the college has already prepared
a document compiling several information for the ISO 9001:2000 certificate, this document is the first
prepared in this kind and process. Thus this is the most important and useful document for the college too
as every sector of the college is reflected in this document. This document becomes the guideline for the
college management team for the future planning, internal assessment and self assessment. It has also
massively facilitated the institution in conducting various academic programs in systematic and scientific
way through documentation.
Formation of SSR team
SWSC had constituted a Self Study Report Preparation Team in the chairmanship of Dr. Rajendra K.C
along with the following members.
1. Mr. Tikaram Mahara
2. Mr. Mahesh Shrestha
3. Mr. Milan Neupane
4. Mr. Kamal Devkota
Among the above mentioned team memebers, Dr. Rajendra KC took advisory role and allocated his time
during the meetings. Other management team and administrative staffs put substantial contribution while
preparing the report.
SWSC organized series of orientation programs to its teaching and non teaching staffs after the SSR team
was formed. Information regarding the accreditation process and procedures were presented in the
orientation programs. Basic requirement of the institution for the accreditation were presented in these
events. Staffs (both teaching and non teaching) were assigned to be prepared on the pre requisites in this
process. These people were agreed to contribute from their sector so as to get the accreditation. Several
meetings and discussions were held among the staffs to update them about the report preparation phase
and collected their inputs to make the report more realistic and concrete.
Several seminars were given to the stakeholders by the SSR committees during the self assessment
process and made them aware for the quality service delivery. Besides, some members of the SSR team
visited the already accredited higher secondary institutions as the exposure visits during the self study
report preparation process. Meetings with team members of SSR committee from BalKumari College
Chitawan Nepal were held for their experience sharing. Some best practices have been replicated in
SWSC after the SSR team members visit to these institutions. Regular interaction with the UGC officials
particularly the second higher education project was done.
The self study report preparation committee members were chosen from the different departments and
backgrounds. Some of these are partially involved in research and project management where they are
directly involved in assessment and report writing. This committee thoroughly went through system of
college in every sector to prepare the report. Once the report was prepared by the committee, college
management committee reviewed it precisely and put their comments on the report. All the department
heads also put their corrections in the report. Again the SSR preparation team incorporated the comments
by management team and made final draft of the report. Finally the College Board read the report and
made some necessary correction. A final report is submitted by the team with several corrections from all
management teams. 59

Administrative structure
SWSC is a private organization and it is governed by the team of professional in the field of education.
But indirectly students, parents and the community of the different districts of Nepal are involved in this
organization. This college has Executive Board with seven members. The executive board has formed a
College Management Committee consisting 4 members comprising: Principal, Vice- Principal, Program
Director and Program Coordinator. The Principal is the Member Secretary of Executive Board. He
communicates the issues and problems to the College Management Committee in the Monthly Board
Meeting. He takes main responsibility of the College Management. Vice- Principal looks after the Science
faculty and media coverage. Program Director looks after Management faculty and Accounts and Finance

heads also. These subject committees help in developing lesson plans, class management and research.
These subject committees work under the guidance by College Management Committee on regular basis.
Moreover SWSC has an internal and external monitoring and evaluation scheme. The internal monitoring
and evaluation scheme is done by Principal himself accordingly to internal quality assurance. But the
external monitoring is done by Executive Committee. Beside this, SWSC evaluates the performance of
faculty members, staffs on regular basis. Principal along with all the Board Members evaluate the
performance of faculty members and staffs about their academic excellence, work proficiency,
punctuality, active class room participation and research activities. Faculty members and administrative
staffs are rewarded based their performance on regular basis.
To enhance academic excellence, the college had provision of providing different types self financing
professional courses such as accountancy training from London Chamber of Commerce and Industry
(LCCI) and communication skills.
The college provisioned collecting suggestions from the community, parents, guardians, students, and
teachers and through suggestion box, periodic suggestion collection through specific format and online
system as well. Even the college has appointed a team of experts as Advisory Board Members to develop
and acquire some feedbacks for the management plan. They frequently advise us to adopt participatory
management, research led teaching and presentation classes. The college has formed a Student Quality
Circle by collecting Class Representatives (CR). They inform the college administration about their
opinion on teachers‘ performance, classroom activities and evaluation of the college experience.
SWSC believes that quality education is impossible without research. The management team of SWSC
has established a research center named Southwestern Academic Research Center (SWARC). Faculty
members and students are exposed in research activities by the SWARC. It regularly conducts different
workshops and trainings to increase professionalism, leadership skill and presentation skills to the
students and teachers. SWARC has taken initiatives to promote partnership with external organizations by
launching outreach programs involving different GOs ans I/NGOs.
Curricular Aspects
SWSC has been consistently running with its vision, mission, goals, and spirits to manage practical
education through research led teaching and social activities in the societies. Also we have Internal
Quality Assurance Cell in the college and the subject committees take care about the quality control
process and practices.
There are different areas of studies open for the aspiring students. Various optional and elective subjects
are offered according their choices. BBS, BBA, BA in social work (BSW) and MBS are currently running
at this college, PhD facilitate where as BSc, and A level course by Cambridge University are in pipeline.
Students can choose different elective subjects according to their interest and availability in the college.
SWSC has conducted programs in the morning shift and day shift to facilitate the needs of students. So
the college offers elective, optional, horizontal mobility and time frame matching students‘ convenience.
We are planning to run further classes in morning and evening shift too. Overall we give importance to
the involvement of faculties, communities, students and stakeholders to achieve goal and objectives of the
college. 61
Except the regular course works, SWSC provides quality education by enhancing the competency based
skill and self sustaining as well as career development programs like time management, leadership,
motivation, skill development and proficiency development by using information and technology. It has
also been running different extra curricular activities like quiz contest, debate competition, elocution,
poem writing competition, speech, volleyball and basketball matches to create socio-cultural and national
political awareness in students. It has also developed relationship with media houses, industries and
information and technology related organizations as network to create harmony and mutual sharing of
SWSC has been organizing different subject wise interaction programs collaboration with other higher
education institutions. These programs are organized to review existing curriculum, put substantive
feedback and discuss about the loopholes for strengthening the ongoing teaching learning methodologies.
SWSC has been linked with different organizations like HSEB, Tribhuvan University for Bachelor Level,
Southwestern Cooperative, International A levels program from Cambridge University, Management
Association of Nepal (MAN) ,HISSAN, LCCI, BMTRADA (organization to provide ISO) and different
other international institutions. Beside we have very good intercollege relationship with other colleges in
this area.
SWSC is aware about its responsibilities. Its motto is research, teaching and social activities. Generally
social work students are mobilized in social work activities. They identify problems in different
communities and do the activities to solve these problems. Frequently they are given civic education
classes as a part of regular class twice a month. Because of this, they learn lots of things. It includes all
round development of the students from that type of programs they learn about time management,
leadership skills, motivation, life skill development, mass communication and social awareness. From
these all they can get ideas about moral and ethical values of education in the societies in real life
Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
SWSC is committed to expose its students in international standard of teaching and learning system so
that they can easily cope with their further studies at any corner of the world. Some of the main objectives
of adopting different widely accepted teaching and learning approaches are to make students used to in
this highly competitive job market. This college formally announces the admission in its different level to
enroll students. College notice board, website, different social medias and sometimes commercial medias
are used to flow the information regarding the admission. Interested students are requested to fill the
admission form with necessary documents in the specified time. They are admitted mainly on merit basis
and their performance in the entrance test. Previous track records, intelligence, potentiality in any
particular sector, socio-cultural and geographical heterogeneity etc are some other basis of selecting
students for the enrollment. Needy students are provided full and partial scholarships as per the rules. We
give high priority to maintain the social and cultural diversity to form the sections although academic
performance is the major factor in this regard. Newly enrolled students are given counseling and
orientation classes before their classes are commence. They have to receive the oath by college so that
they will maintain the discipline during their stay in college. 62
As we persuade the students with better achievements in their previous degree from the educational
institutions from rural areas where English is not the medium of teaching to enroll, the college manage
extra English language classes to the needy students with free of cost. Students are exposed in reading and
writing practices in English in these classes. Similarly, the college manages extra tutorial classes to the
weak students during the exam periods nevertheless our aim is not only to pass our students in exam. In
today‘s context, Nepalese graduate students are compelled to join several professional trainings like
accounting, report and proposal writing, etc. so as to get better jobs in the market once they passed their
academic degree from the college. SWSC advocates for the enhancement of both knowledge and skill
during their academic course. In this regard, college has regular schedule of such professional trainings.
Till date, trainings on civic education, time management, report writing, proposal writing etc were
organized. Thematic experts are the invited as the facilitator in such trainings.
Each teacher has to attend one day workshop organized by the college for the preparation of yearly lesson
plan before the commencement of their classes. Regular presentations by the students either through
multi-media or other tools are compulsory in each class. Sometimes cross classes are managed in all
possible subjects. A single teacher is not responsible for a whole course in any classes. Cross correction
of assignments is provisioned in the college. Initially students check their mate‘s assignment as per their
capacity and then teacher put their comments and suggestions to both submitters and checkers. Students
have to participate in different level of discussions, interactions and social activities organized by the
college with its partner organizations. Specially the students of social sciences are exposed in critically
reviewing the books, articles, papers etc and present their views towards the readings. Internet based
assignments are also managed in the college. However it depends up on the subject and teachers too.
Faculty members in this college are qualified, experienced and professionals. Their experiences,
qualification and capabilities are mainly evaluated during the recruitment. Most of the faculty members
are fulltime where as some are part time too. Besides the fulltime professional faculties; professors,
researchers, senior managers, I/NGO professionals, bankers, writers, lawyers also are in the college as
visiting faculty members. Their experiences have been supporting students for the better performance.
The college has managed three internal exams namely first terminal, second terminal and pre board exam.
Re exams are managed to those students who become failed in any of these three exams. They have to
appear in such exam until they passed in the failed subject. Regular feedbacks are given to the students in
their performance in the exams. Besides, surprise test and unit test are also managed as per the necessary.
Necessary handouts are given to students from the respective subject teachers. Student‘s assignment
basically the reports, term papers and thesis are kept in library which could be used as the reference
materials by other students. Student at SWSC are given the opportunities of publishing their short articles
in the regular publications of SWSC. Some of their selected papers are published in Southwestern
Education Hub- a trimester journal published by the college where as short articles are being published in
the monthly newspaper. Performance based award system is being implemented in the college. Students
who secure the first position in internal exam are awarded an installment waiver in the fee.
Extracurricular activities are being organized in regular basis which are listed in the college yearly
calendar. Students with better performance in such activities like sports, music and other academic
activities are given national and international platforms.
College management and faculty members are committed to enhance student‘s academic and cocurricular achievements. Infrastructures for the sports (indoor and outdoor games) are built in the college
premises. College organizes the inter and intra-college sports tournaments, dance and music competitions,
poem competitions, quiz contest, extempore speech, debates etc on regular basis. Students have been
enjoying these as the platform for their exposure. Sometimes experts in the respective fields are managed
to guide students for their better performance in such activities. College management and faculties are
committed being actively participated in this kind of learning process at SWSC. College has put its efforts
to establish the friendly environment both physical and academic. Classes have been managed as per the
necessary. Guest lectures and experts are invited by college as per the faculty member‘s demand and
Research, Consultancy and Extension
Teaching, research and social
activities are the motto of this
college. SWSC has been
promoting the research led
teaching in the class room.
Especially the students
enrolled in social science
subjects like sociology, social
work, mass communication as
well as in marketing etc. are
exposed in research along with
faculties. Southwestern
Academic Research Centre
(SWARC) is a part of this
college to lead the research
based activities collaborating
with college and other partners.
It is in the sense that a separate
Autonomous Body with the
concept of Auto-Run has been
formed which will be totally
responsible for the research
related aspects. The reason
behind this separate entity is
simply to let the Research
Body work widely and openlywhile providing the
opportunity of grabbing and
earning direct and indirect
benefits of one another.
