To Develop Scientific Skills
Our college was established in 1968 with a mission to impart quality Science Education to the semi urban youth. To realize our mission, we have started this practice of inviting renowned personalities/scientists in the college to nurture scientific attitude in the students of the college and orienting them towards research.
As our college caters to the needs of the semi –urban youth, this practice was highly desired. The semi urban youth need exposure to the outer modern global world. Feeling the need to provide them opportunities where they can get a chance to upgrade their knowledge and to inspire them by interacting with the renowned personalities from the prestigious institutions. This practice facilitates their academic growth and acquaints them with the latest concepts.
Eminent scientists are invited to the institute to deliver lectures based upon their field of research in addition to general advanced topics by Deptt. of Chemistry, Deptt. of Botany, Deptt. of Physics and Deptt. of Zoology.Scientists from different fields were invited to the college during various programs like, workshops , science fiesta, seminars and extension lectures who enlighten the students with their knowledge and experience. This helps in enriching their knowledge and create interest in their mind for the subject. The scientists also help the students and faculty members to understand recent developments in the field of science and clear doubts leading to clarity of subject. The students are also taken to research institutes for practical demonstrations and to expose them to the variety of techniques being used in these institutes. During this session, students got the opportunity to meet number of scientists, to name a few,
Our college organizes the two day mega event science Fiesta. Science fiesta was organized on 18-10-2019 and 21-10-2019. On the first day ,inter school and inter college competitions of power point presentation Essay writing and speech competition were held on the topicI Innovation in Sciences which was attended by 108 students from 12 colleges and 68 students from 7 schools.

Evidence of success
The interest of the students in the subject increased after interaction with the visiting scientists and research institutes. But after such an interaction with the renowned personalities they were motivated and encouraged and number of them joined post graduate courses. Problem encountered and resources required: Being a government institute, it is managed by grants from different funding agencies like DBT, UGC and state council for carrying out such activities in the college. PTA fund is also used in case of shortage of funds.
(2) Women Empowerment
Our college has always provided safe and congenial atmosphere to the girl students. We have more girl students than boys in the college. Every effort is made to encourage and empower them by the college staff.
The majority of the girls belong to semi urban middle class families who still believe in the submissiveness of women. It becomes our responsibility to develop confidence in them and to prepare them for facing the challenges of life.
