contributed to the achievement of the Institutional Objectives and/or contributed to the
Quality improvement of the core activities of the college.
TWO BEST PRACTICES: The practices that may be given the credit of being called the two best practices of our

Title of the Practice
To make the students socially sensitized and responsible citizens.
To produce well aware, confident and courageous women to encounter social evils.
Social evils and crimes against women are rampant in the society. So it is the need of the
hour that women at the college level are well trained through different programmes to
stand against these evils.
Different quality cells that undertake extension activity programmes are N.S.S., N.C.C.,
Red Cross Unit, Women Cell, Legal Literacy Cell, Equal Opportunity Cell, Career
Guidance Cell and Nehru Studies Centre. They train the students to serve the society and
fight social evils. Such programmes are organized frequently to create awareness of various
Legal Literacy Cell & Women Cell create awareness about women empowerment and provide counselling regarding the legal rights of women through an Advocate who is on the panel.
Equal Opportunity Cell takes care of safeguarding the interest of SC/ST and other disadvantaged sections of society by providing them counselling and support in various ways.
Through N.S.S., service of many kinds like promoting literacy, creating health awareness, maintaining hygiene and cleanliness etc. are rendered to rural population through camps and campaigns.
N.C.C. Units remain active throughout the year and give physical trainings and instil confidence in the girl students.
The Career Guidance Cell imparts counselling and guidance regarding various career opportunities among students and society.
Programmes like Disaster Management Training, First Aid Training etc. equip the students with ability to fight with emergencies and calamities that may befall, and rescue and help their social counterparts during hours of need.
Evidence of Success:
The college organizes a number of successful social service campaigns every year.
We have two N.S.S. units which organize 7 Day Camps and one day camps to uplift the two adopted slum areas in the neighbourhood. The units organize environment related, health and hygiene related and education related activities to ameliorate the poor conditions in these areas.
The students are made aware of prevailing social evils, especially those related to women. They are made aware of their legal and social rights and also how to safeguard their position and prestige in society. They have inculcated a sense of self-confidence and self-esteem as a result.
The institution has been successful in motivating and training the students to have increased involvement in social campaigns organized by G.Os and N.G.Os. Many of our students are star ambassadors in creating awareness on contemporary social issues.
The Nehru Studies Centre also organizes short term skill oriented vocational programs to make them live a life of financial independence and self esteem.
Problems encountered and the Resources required:
Social Resistance- When different Literacy or medical surveys are conducted, people of the adopted slum areas show resistance to participate. It is very difficult to persuade them to come out and attend different Legal Literacy lectures, Art & Craft workshops, and medical camps. Even after much effort, not all the women of those areas participate actively.
Scarcity of Funds- There is hardly any monetary support from the Govt. or other N.G.Os. to carry out major development projects, drives, surveys or workshops during these camps.
The girls from rural areas are mostly from conservative backgrounds. They are hesitant to share their personal women-related issues.
Title of the Practice
To create maximum scope for skill development by giving vocational education and trainings to students.
To make the students academically qualified and also equipped simultaneously with
some practical professional training to be eligible and employable for different career
The Practice: Professional degree: - B.Sc. in Fashion & Textile Designing
has been started in the college to provide a professional
degree to the girl students of this college.
B.Com (with Computer Vocational): It gives the students an edge
over B.Com General as they become professionally qualified in Computers
and e-learning. They have great scope for specialized Post Graduation and
have better opportunities in the fields of IT and e-commerce.
Add-on Courses: - Add-on Courses in different genres likeFashion
Designing, Garment Construction, Diet Nutrition & Health Education, IT,
Cosmetology, Functional English, Yoga and Health are run in the college.
Kurukshetra University provides dual degree to the students opting these
Add-on Course along with their academic degree. The Add-on Courses
have the provision of One- year Certificate Course, two year Diploma and
three year Advanced Diploma Course.
Short-term Courses and workshops on Art of Designing, Cosmetology and
Herbal Products, Art of Painting and Cookery making are organized from
time to time.
Gandhian Studies Centre has been running short- term Certificate Courses
of 1,3 & 6 months duration on Cosmetology & Herbal Products, Fabric
Designing, Art and Craft & Cooking.
Nehru Studies Centre has been running 3-4 months Certificate
courses on Basics of Computers, Fine Arts Designing, Textile Designing &
Practical thoughts of Jawaharlal Nehru.
Yoga classes are often organized in the morning under qualified Coaches to
give the students not only practical training but also aiming at the
development of their physical, mental and spiritual being.
The athletes and sportsmen are given training of different games and sports
events under qualified coaches besides ‘Physical education’ being an optional
subject so that students can opt for some career in the field of Sports.
The practical subjects Music Vocal and MusicInstrumental open the avenues
in the field of music.
The practical subject of Fine Arts leads to a plethora of avenues in the field
of Arts like Commercial Art, Painting, Sculpture, Cartoons etc.
Evidence of Success:-
A great number of students have established themselves in the field of Music,
Fashion Designing, Fine Arts, Yoga, Cosmetology, Sports & IT.
Many of them have joined business houses for Accounts.
Some of the students have opened their own Boutiques and Beauty Parlours.
Some of our students are now employed as ‘Coaches’ for different games and
Problems encountered and Resources required:-
Most of the students want to opt for one or more Add-on Courses but there is time-table constraint. Many of our girl students who are coming from far-off places or rural areas cannot stay back late in the evenings for fear of missing their bus or train to their home place.
Resistance is also faced from their parents sometimes as they have a narrow minded approach and just want their daughters to complete the main academic programme with good score and reach back well in time.
