19 Part C 19 Details of the Institutional plan for the year Our experience of offering quality higher education in a rural, hilly, tribal district which is also backward on account of low enrolment has been on the one hand heartening in realising the fruit it is beginning to bear in the lives of our past students. This year 27 rank holders happen to be our students. On the other hand, our concerns for the future are about sustaining quality by seeking ways to ensure its continuity and incremental growth. In order to achieve this goal for the coming year we envisage the following: 1. Reinforcement of students participation and involvement. To make learning a personalised process and interiorise the students will have to be involved. Towards this end the college introduced departmental activities. Departmental consist of weekly seminars by the students in their respective subject concerned. Every week at least three students are able to present seminar papers related to their studies. It being participatory learning the entire class gets chances to raise questions and will be answer by the students themselves. Departmental activities also consist in presenting programmes which are educative such as, debates, speeches, quiz etc. Every week they get an hour to conduct such programme by the students themselves. 2. Capacity building of the teaching staff. Teaching staff is the back bone of any institution that seeks excellence. To obtain maximum learning by the students we hope to enhance the teaching ability of the staff. Towards this end orientation programmes, teaching methodology and practices, classroom management courses are to be conducted. 3. Follow up of students and the students support system. Most of the students are from far out region of Manipur and as such they are under the supervision and control of the parents and guardians. Adding to their woe they remain in rent houses. Many of them become disorder and misguided. To help students of such background we shall appoint students mentors and staff councillors. In this way we are able to follow up students who are in problems related to their studies as well as personal in nature. The staff is able to take place of their parents and their guardians. If any student find themselves weak in their studies they shall be assisted by the respective teachers concerned in order to make learning easier for the students. 4.Prevent drop outs through special scholarship for weak students. A number of students are from remote rural background some of them real sacrifice to reach here to pursue their studies. In the process of their stay here they find difficult to maintain themselves financially. Such students will be helped out either through scholarship or loan from the college. Thus this students are able to continue their studies undisturbed and prevent drop out. 5. The IQAC team has been revamped as to include new entrants even as we are moving towards the re-accreditation phase and efforts are to be put in place to achieve the target of implementing the suggestions given by the NAAC report The infrastructural expansion so as to contain the Library building, the laboratory of various science departments.
