Mentoring is a valuable strategy to provide students with the emotional and academic support that is needed to achieve the goal of the institution. A large number of students are from other cities and states and to cope with both emotional issues and enable them to excel in academics, a Mentor-Mentee System is developed for all students of the College.
The mentoring programme is conducted to help the students to strengthen their varied capabilities and to build an interpersonal relationship between the faculties and students. All the faculties (Mentors) are assigned 12 number students (Mentees). Mentors can play an important role in nurturing students’ aspirations, helping them to prepare themselves and motivating them to make successful transitions in their careers.
This programme is conducted for individual students. The personal-level interviews with the students are conducted periodically. All mentors keep a confidential data sheet about their students, records which represent a report of mentoring done by the teachers. Mentors discuss various issues including classroom lectures, laboratory performances, participation in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, any academic difficulty faced and career development.
Students shall be assigned to Mentors right from the first year of the programme at the time of induction program. The mentoring programme is monitored by a committee consisting of the HOD and a group of experienced faculties.

These guidelines will be applicable to all the students enrolled in all the programmes of the College.
