The college organizes an orientation programme before the commencement of its academic session. This introduces the incoming students to various programmes, activities, facilities and the values of the institution.
LEADERSHIP SKILLS PROGRAMMES
The Head Girl, Assistant Head Girls, Presidents and Secretaries of Clubs and Societies, Class & Section Representatives are sensitized to values of responsibility, initiative and decision-making. Freshers’ Contest, Valedictory Function and other functions of clubs and societies are the responsibility of the students only.
THE COLLEGE PRAYER
The Prayer along with singing of the National Anthem is a regular feature of the college. Other than the invocations, the assembly is a means of communication with the students regarding policy matters, important functions/competitions and above all a time to disseminate meaningful matters of life and living. The relevance of important days and events like Youth Day, Women’s Day, Rishi Bodh Day, Balmiki Day, Sant Ravi Dass Day etc. is reaﬃrmed.
COMMUNITY SERVICE CELL
There is a very active Community Service Cell in the college, that helps to inculcate the spirit of service and civic values among the students. Visits to Orphanage and Old Age Home, Mental Hospital and institute for the Deaf and Dumb and to the Women Inmates of the Local Jail are organized from time to time. Several times, festivals are celebrated with the inmates. The students make collections in kind and cash to share with the inmates. Students are also sensitized to various national problems and are given training to serve society with a human touch in the time of emergency. In the recent past, they collected funds for the victims of Kargil War, Gujarat earthquake, Jammu & Kashmir refugees and Tsunami victims. The college participates in various community service programmes organized by Arya Samaj and DAV Institutions.
CAREER COUNSELLING CENTRE
During the time of admission, this cell helps the students by acquainting them with the programmes and courses available in the college and facilitates them in making decisions and choices for their future. The work of this cell is to oﬀer insight, guidance and support to help students understand and manage different career issues.
Under the aegis of WEF (Women Empowerment Forum), the college sensitizes women about their status and identity, coping strategies for their dual role and to become more self-reliant. The forum, through lectures by women of eminence, tries to lift women out of the submissive/ subordinator’s image and prepares them to live with dignity, facing the challenges of the patriarchal system.
The college has taken the initiative of forging ties with international institutes for educational & cultural exchanges and sharing of know-how. It has linkages with key global educational organizations like WCCI (World Council of Curriculum & Instructions), WEF (World Education Foundation), Kent County Council, Technology College, Northfleet; Hextable School and World Punjabi Congress, Pakistan.
