FOREWORD

I am really pleased to provide details of various programmes and activities, held durin
g
2010
-
11, aimed at the performance of students and to uplift the standard of learning and
teaching, to impart knowledge effectively for the all round development of students. While
organizing these activities, the centre of concern has always been the
students.

The re
-
accreditation report (RAR) stands submitted to UGC as the pre
-
requisite for the
pending assessment. This report obviously reflects the efforts taken by the college for the
overall welfare of student clan. The number of activities, curricu
lar as well as co
-
curricular
and extracurricular, clearly show the hard work put in by the staff of our college. The most
noteworthy events in the last academic year were three UGC
-
sponsored National Seminars
organized by different departments and the comm
encement of construction work of a
house for a deserving beneficiary residing in the adopted village of National Service Scheme
units operating in the college. We are extremely happy to state that the funds allocated and
released by UGC were fully and suit
ably spent for improving infrastructural and academic
betterments. The successful completion of Ladies Hostel needs special mention in this
situation. The ICT based teaching and learning has literally changed the tutoring scenario
with the introduction of
more computers, installation of interactive display screens and
improved and elaborate internet connectivity. The networking of departments has greatly
facilitated the handling of administrative and academic workload.

The implementation of Choice Based
Credit and Semester System (CCSS) by this institution
in 2010 was big and constructive leap in line with the revolutionary change
s

happening in
the field of
education at
the
national level.

To uplift the standard of education and improve the performanc
e of students, the college
with the assistance of U.G.C., continued to run effectively the remedial coaching, career
oriented courses, entry into service coaching and the like.

The management of our college is very liberal and co
-
operative. Without their

generous
support the implementation of these activities was not possible. I am really grateful for the
valuable support of the management. It will be unappreciative on my part if I do not
mention the incessant support and encouragement from UGC to us to u
plift the standard of
higher education in this institution
