1. Title of the Practice- Proctorial System

2. Objectives of the Practice

As a best practice, a proctorial system, introduced first by the Higher Education Department of the Government, has been developed and followed uninterruptedly. The objective of this system is to monitor the academic progress of students regularly and resolve their problems if it comes in the way of their progress.

3. The Context

This institute imparts higher teaching to girl students of different backgrounds of the locality. Our responsibility is build inside an atmosphere free of any sense of discrimination and deprivation. To fulfill that responsibility with care and commitment is the most challenging issue.

4. The Practice -

Under the system a faculty member takes on the role of a proctor of a group of students assigned to his/her care to provide support, counseling and address their academic problems. Parents are informed over the phone incase their wards are not attending classes regularly or need parental care and support. In the process of knowing students, the proctors know about their family background and financial condition, so as to take necessary steps to see that this does not come in their way of continuing studies. Scholarship/ Financial Assistance are also used to support the students to continue their studies further. They also identify and promote literary and cultural abilities in students. The differently abled children are provided necessary physical and moral support. Remedial classes are taken for the academic assistance for weak students. Campus cleaning activities are also undertaken to make the students conscious of cleanliness.
