“Empowering First-Generation Learners” is an area of performance of the institution that is distinctive to its vision, priority and thrust. Socially and economically marginalised students are provided the opportunity to seamlessly carry on with their education. An utmost priority of our institution is to fulfill this vision by addressing all impediments that act as obstacles in the path of education for underprivileged sections of society. The teachers of the college have been playing a major role in supporting, engaging with and empowering such students. The Student’s Council, members of the alumni and teachers—all work together as support networks for such students by enabling them to smoothly initiate themselves into a new college environment. Concessions and scholarships are offered to economically disadvantaged students, to enable and encourage them to pursue higher education. They are guided through counselling, prior to admissions, to help them choose subjects based on their merit and proficiency. All departments arrange for regular extra classes to support these students. The teachers are vigilant and are quick to identify areas of concern and these are then carefully addressed. Such students are regularly assessed through monthly tests. On the basis of the results, parent-teacher meetings are regularly conducted to address concerns of academically weak students. Such an approach helps reduce stigma and enables such students to effectively complete their undergraduate program. These students are guided on their career pathway through career counselling and even ex-students are provided career-guidance to help them become employment-ready. Teachers provide constant support in this matter and lovingly provide able guidance to all students.
