Strengthen the interaction and continuous engagement of the students by the Alumni and Recruiters.
Since April to October 2020, 30 sessions were organised between the alumni and the students to strengthen the interaction and continuous engagement. Further 12 more sessions were organised to enhance the employability skills and these sessions were taken by a resource person an alumni of IIM Ahmadabad.
To create a Centre of Excellence driven by Industry/Corporate Partners.
Although the Centre of Excellence could not be setup formally due to lack of physical meetings and interactions with stakeholders (Students, Industry/Corporate Partners). But we hope to setup this kind of Centre of Excellence in the near future.
The college should develop and encourage the research environment not only for teachers but also for the students by making a repository of all the research work done by the faculty members.
Create a corpus for funding new resources such as research assistance softwares which can help in quality research.
The task of creating the repository is already in place. Soon the research work done by the faculty members will be available on the college library portal and Online Public Access Catalogue after it is processed through the system like other resources in the library.
Efforts are being made to create the corpus for funding new resources in the form of research assistance softwares. The college is looking forward to the Alumni for taking some initiative in this regard. Further the college is making effort to get it registered under 80G of the Income Tax where the companies can contribute as their CSR activity towards the college and avail their due benefits and exemptions.
Need to work upon the awareness of brand name of the college and make it more familiar among the masses.
The college is making its sincere efforts in this regard and will soon come up with some positive results in the form of reach and awareness.
3) To discuss a road map of the steps to be taken to improve the learning environment of the college
It was suggested that if the college library can be given the name of “Learning Resource Centre” as library is one place where collection and dissemination of information/resources takes place.
It was suggested that various workshops for students should be organised on variety of aspects related to research work, Internet Literacy, Information Literacy, Creative Writing etc.
To further enhance the quality of research, it was suggested that various Faculty Development Programmes should be organised on variety of aspects related to research work and academic quality.
To conduct a good quality study/survey to analyse the problems faced by the students in the online mode of teaching and learning.
