Extension Activities


Extension Activities

The extension work undertaken by the college is academic as well as unacademic. Under academic extension programs, our faculty and students extend their expertise to folks who need it but are not readily available to them. The Science department that takes their lab equipment to schools where these apparatuses are not available is a case in point. The English literature PG students who take care of the high school students who grapple with tough areas of English language we consider as extension work.

CASP

A new social service project CASP started functioning in the campus. Twenty-five poor school children of the BPL (Below Poverty Line) group of the locality have been adopted to be taken care of. The CASP takes complete responsibility of educational, physical, emotional, spiritual and other developmental needs of the children under its care. They are offered tuition facilities if they are under achievers and are counseled at the right stage to avoid getting misguided by anti-social elements. Their parents also are offered opportunity to get involved in some of their activities so that they are convinced of the good intentions and designs of the Program. The children are taught to live in complete harmony with the society composed of members of various religious and cultural groups so that they are not carried away by the tempting rewards offered to them by anti-socials. The functioning of the CASP has been going on for the last several years and the program is today hailed as one of the most effective non-governmental support initiatives that takes utmost care of the needy and the deserving.
