Best Practices 2022-23 (AQAR)

Inclusive Higher Education
The Context: Social inclusion in education refers to taking special initiatives to support the students coming from the weaker and underprivileged sections of the society. Most of the students taking admission in our college belong to socio-economically disadvantaged groups of the society.
Objectives of the Practice:

  • To provide quality education to all the students with greater emphasis on the students belonging to weaker sections of society.
  • To ensure equal opportunities and resources to students coming from different socio-economic backgrounds.
  • To empower students from the marginalised sections of the society by putting extra efforts in building their confidence and personality.
  • To promote female students for quality higher education by providing safe, secure and democratic ecosystem.
  • To attract the students from the adverse backgrounds for quality higher education.
The Practice: Students, irrespective of their socio-economic background are granted admission to various programmes offered by the college. Special efforts are also made by various college committees such as Internal Quality Assurance Cell, Women Cell, Anti-ragging Cell, Equal Opportunity and Grievances Redressal Cell, Proctorial Board, etc. to ensure that all students have a quality student life. Scholarships are also made available to all deserving students. During the session, 604 students were benefitted with the Post-Matric Scholarship. Besides, t.o ensure digital empowerment of students, tablets and smart phones were distributed to students under Digi-Shakti Scheme of the Government.
Advantages: Students from underprivileged sections of the society are able to gain knowledge, skills and a proactive attitude to be on par with their peers from privileged backgrounds.
Enhancement of the confidence level and communication skills among these students.
Challenges: With the increasing cost of higher education including fee, books, transport, digital resources, stationery, etc., it is difficult to sustain the motivation of the students from adverse economic background.   The college is located in a semi-urban background where the social taboos may deter the enrolment of female students beyond a particular level of higher education MBPG College is the only government-aided college of the district to provide higher education opportunities at nominal fee and, therefore, the students from the remote areas face the problems of transport to commute to the college. Evidence of Success: A great number of students from underprivileged backgrounds successfully completed their degree from our college.
Resources Required: Financial support and scholarships
A robust students’ support mechanism to ensure that students are adjusting well to the new atmosphere.

Community Service
The Context: The college demonstrates a balance in academic and life training programmes and provides opportunities to its students to strengthen their bond with the society. It aims at not just imparting quality education to the students but also aims at their overall personality development by encouraging them to contribute voluntarily towards the betterment of the society and environment through various community services.
Objectives of the Practice:
  • To develop a sense of responsibility and accountability in the students towards their society and community.
  • To train the students for community building initiatives.
  • To develop leadership qualities.
  • To give them exposure to the social issues.
  • To develop team spirit as a vital component for the desired social reforms.
  • To develop sense of empathy for the vulnerable and downtrodden sections.
  • To inculcate inter-cultural competence through experiential activities.
  • To inculcate problem-solving and managerial skills.
The Practice: The college has two units of NSS and one unit of NCC to carry out various community-based social outreach activities through annual camps, one-day camps or similar other programmes. During the session 2021-22, NSS units organised seven-day special camp at Datawali and Pali villages wherein the volunteers were oriented and sensitised about their responsibility towards the neighbouring community and society. The number of sensitisation programmes organised during the camp include-- Cleanliness campaign, health and hygiene, respect for social diversity, work is worship, Panchayati Raj System, importance of youth in rural development and nation building, and many more. The volunteers were also motivated to be the part of desired social change through their active participation in philanthropic activities like Blood Donation, distribution of used clothes among the needy, awareness among the masses about vaccination drive COVID-19 (12.02.2022) as a preventive measure to control the spread of pandemic, etc. The NSS units conducted one-day camps, rallies and numerous other awareness programmes resulting into active involvement of students in community-based initiatives. Similarly, NCC unit of the college conducted large number of activities to sensitise the cadets about social issues. Some of the major activities of NCC where the cadets of the college participated are— Combined Annual Training Camps, Wildlife Week Celebration, IMA Attachment Camp, World Bicycle Day, All India NCC Girls Trekking Expedition, Road Safety Rally, and International Yoga Day.
