    BEST PRACTICES for I-2014-2019



    • To provide leadership training to students
    • Motivate students to be socially aware and responsible citizen.
    • Help to enhance the all-round personality of the students.
    • To promote aesthetic development, character building and organizing capacity.
    • Activities help the talents of the young minds and give them an opportunity to develop their specialized skills.


    Each department plans activities which compliment but are not part of the conventional academic curriculum. Participating in them not only develop students academic potentials but also other aspects of their personality such as self-esteem, self-confidence, social cooperation and leadership skills. Activities should be educationally relevant so that they can associate with it. The sole goal of education should be to ensure the holistic development of students. Holistic development is basically the development of everyone’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and religious values. Activities develop hidden skills of students and provide an opportunity to the students to share their creativity. They are also open to students who show exceptional skill in their studies and are able to develop ahead of their peers.


    Literary and co-curricular activities are organized by each department for the development of linguistic skill and mental faculties. Debate, discussion, declamation, speech, story writing, essay writing are some of the literary and academic activities. Activities supplement and compliment the entire aesthetic as well as spiritual development, which are the essential components of education .It helps in developing features like speech fluency , creativity and organizing skills and are a good platform to excel. Leadership skills are enhanced by selection of President, secretary, treasurer, class representatives who function as leaders of students of the department for the whole year.


    Departmental council activities not only make the students active and energetic but also enable to harness the in depth potential of students. It enhances knowledge in many domains, which benefits the student as well as college; activities are good platform to promote leadership quality. Creativity form of expression serve as nourishment for the soul. Every year each department conduct many programme/activities under association. These activities provide the opportunity to the learner for self-expression. Activities have academic and literary activities like Debates, painting, exhibition, pot decoration, Rangoli, music and fine arts develop aesthetic sensibility of the learner. These are helpful in unfolding and extracting the hidden beauty in the mind of students. Cultural activities provide better knowledge and understanding of our rich culture heritage.


    Many faculty member believe their primary role is to create knowledge and all other roles are secondary, therefore activities that divert student energy from class work and counter productive. Student participation /response is not very enthusiastic towards participation.

    Funds for giving prizes is limited.     


    1. TITLE OF THE PRACTICE: Creating Research culture


    1. To promote research culture among the faculty and student.
    2. To promote research culture by encouraging high quality research activities among the faculty and student.
    3. Promote and facilitate collaborative or interdisciplinary research and enhancement of research networking capacity and infrastructure.
    4. Foster excellence and innovation in teaching in the Humanities,Science and Commerce.
    5. Increase and effectively manage the resources and research support for its members.
    6. Contribute to the university’s strategic educational and research mission and to support synergies between research, teaching, and learning.
    7. Transfer and mobilize knowledge gained through research for the benefit of society.
    8. Increase the number of publication in indexed journals.

    3.  The Context:

    The college is a unit of higher education which aims at providing high quality education at low cost. Gone are the days when academicians would sit in ivory towers and look down upon lesser mortals. The current demand of the society is for the learned to come down to earth and return to the society what they have received in a more beneficial form. The repute of any educational institution rests on teaching – learning process and research activities. Research therefore is the back bone for the development of the students, teachers and the institution The college being conscious of this state of affairs, has been giving dynamic thrust towards developing and augmenting the research activities of the college to keep abreast of the advances in the fields of science, commerce and arts.. Inculcating research aptitude in faculty members and students has taken priority almost equal to the teaching-learning process. The competency of the students to face the challenges of the society at the end of their tenure will be enhanced not just by their grades and ranks but the ability to apply their knowledge, analyse the problem, synthesize a solution and valuate the outcome. These skills are developed by working on real time projects during their academic career. In order to direct the students along these lines, the faculty also have to be fully equipped in planning and guiding research. Just as much as the teaching learning process is a partnership between the teacher and the student, so also is the research and development process in which the guide and the researcher have equal role to play. In most P.G. Courses through dissertations and projects and effort is made to introduce the students to the fundamentals of research.

               The outcome of research should be relevant to the societal needs and the society. Therefore, taking up research activities shapes a person with moral responsibility and a value system that enhances his/ her commitment towards fulfilling the needs of the society.  Thus the college wishes to show- case the R&D activities of the college as one of the best practices and has worked hard towards its promotion during the last five years.


    1. The final year students have to take up and complete project work. Turning this to the advantage of students, the nature of project work assigned to the students is of quality and sometimes if the students wants to do Ph.D. latter on the topic of the project it is expended to lead to her synopsis for Ph.D.
    2. Faculty pursuing Ph.D and with Ph. D. degrees are encouraged to attend and present papers in national and international conferences to get exposed to recent and emerging trends in their fields of interest.
    3. Eminent researchers are invited to campus for delivering lectures during National and International seminars/ workshops/ conferences organized by the various departments in the college to boost the knowledge level of the faculty and the students.
    4. Memorandums of Understanding have been signed with GBU & I.T.S. engineering college and other agencies and such a practice plays a vital role in interaction of faculty and students with the industries and design projects in collaboration with them. These Institutions has rich library facilities also which act as catalyst for students in preparing research materials.  


    Eleven departments have been recognized as research centres by C.C.S.University, Meerut since the last cycle of NAAC. We have increased research scholars from 0 to 53 since last cycle of NAAC. Faculty members have been conferred with Ph. D in the last five years and 4 faculty members are actively engaged in pursuing the degree. One Women Scientist of DTS working in college and 5 PDF are submitted in different departments.


    1. Sustained motivation of students is always a challenge
    2. Time constraint is a spoke in the wheel, in planning and execution of research specially during formative and summative assessment processes.
    3. Timely funds from agencies are always welcome but in adequate.
    4. If the funding agencies can point out the reason for rejecting the proposal or offer suggestions for improvement, it will go a long way in the development to faculty and hence the students.
    5. Library resources are not rich enough due to lack of adequate grants.
