Greetings! In 2020-2021 we continued coping with the multiple effects of the COVID pandemic and the ensuing lockdown. It is however to the credit of the faculty, non-teaching staff and students that the college kept its morale high with activities both at academic and extracurricular level. We hosted a number of innovative workshops supported by a grant of Rs. 2.50 crore from Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) under the ‘Enhancing Quality and Excellence in Select Autonomous Colleges Scheme’. We could also continue collaboration ventures online such as the entrepreneurship skills development webinar series by Tata Power Skill Development Institute (TPSDI).
Research capacity building activities were conducted by the UGC STRIDE Research Capacity Building Centre including a national research competition for students which saw an overwhelming response. Kudos to the co-curricular committee and sports committee for a host of online events that saw enthusiastic participation also at national level. Equally remarkable was the international BALMELA event hosted by the Human Development Department. We take pride in sharing that the Sports Committee was awarded 3rd prize for their Quality Project Presentation on “Sports and Fitness Culture: Quality Enhancement through a Holistic Approach” at BEQET (Best Educational Quality Enhancement Team).
With warm wishes
Prof. Dr. Mala Pandurang
