Principal Officers

The College understand the need for a robust student’s welfare scheme. To this end, the College has created an environment that affords students maximum opportunities to drive the highest possible quality of personal fulfillment, professional attainment, social responsibility and service to the community while studying in the college.

To this end the college encourages responsible student union activities, clubs and associations, maintains open communication with students and involve student wherever and whenever practicable in the management of affairs and college affairs so far as these directly affect their well-being.

This is in the belief that to make a student responsible, he/she shall be given responsibility to decide in order to appreciate the difficulties of decision-making and, more importantly, implementation.
