Students’ counselling is an important regular activity in the college which is aimed at fostering and nurturing students to excel in academics and to help them for their overall development. This activity provides support and guidance for the academic excellence and other issues being faced by the students. Counselling is not about giving advice but offers a space to discuss about their difficulties and thinking about future prospects. Students from one division are divided into three groups and a faculty member is assigned as a counsellor in each group. As many as 108 faculty members are assigned as the counsellors for regular students in the college.
Each faculty counsellor is allotted 20-25 students and the counsellor arranges three counselling sessions in each semester. This helps to develop a coherent student-counsellor relationship and students can interact freely with the counsellor to discuss about academic excellence and future prospects. Students are encouraged to express their views and suggestions for academic and other infrastructural improvements in the college. The Principal and Head of the Departments take necessary actions to implement their valid suggestions.
The counsellor collects all the details pertaining to the students and keeps a record of attendance of all the courses of the counselling group. Time to time, the attendance reports are communicated to the parents (three times per semester). The report comprises of theory attendance, practical / tutorial attendance and mid semester marks. A counsellor of a particular group takes care of the overall development of the students of that group from semester 1 to 8. Parents can contact the counsellor at any time. The counsellors will arrange meeting with parents whenever they find any need such as the attendance is excessively low or poor performance in the examinations etc. For the smooth functioning of this activity each department has department coordinator and an overall coordinator in the college. Principal and Head of the Departments take necessary actions for the suggestions / issues raised during the counselling sessions.
