Healthy Practices & Clubs

Proctor System & Healthy Practices:

Proctorial System:As the students admitted into various programs are from different academic, social, economic and regional backgrounds, they have a variety of learning needs related to their personal interest. Students learn at different rates in different styles and in different situations and times. The Proctorial System is introduced with the main objective of providing supportive care and advice to the students and to help them in their academic problems and personal problems if any, from time to time and to counsel them appropriately. Each proctor has attached with a batch 20 students. This system would help the students to complete their studies comfortably and successfully.

Clubs at VGI:Various clubs at VGI will promote extracurricular activities among students. They are student-driven clubs, with a faculty member(s) guiding them in an advisory capacity.

The clubs will encourage and promote bonding, teamwork and long lasting friendships among the members. More importantly, the clubs will help VGI students to be well-rounded citizens ready for the challenges in the future after graduation. The clubs will also create opportunities for leadership roles and implementation of new ideas.

VGI encourages and expects every student to take an active and keen interest in the clubs and their activities. The membership is free in all of these clubs.

The student can be a member of more than one club. The only limiting factor is the active participation in each of the clubs. If the student is a member of many clubs, he may confront constraints of time and conflict of meeting times.

The clubs will function in a democratic fashion with each member taking an active interest in the function and growth of each club. After the membership drive, the Clubs will meet to create a steering committee that will coordinate and plan activities for the rest of the year.

Director/principal and faculty will actively support the clubs. There will be at least one faculty member associated with each Club.

The food served in the hostel is a mix of north and south Indian dishes. Hostel atmosphere is maintained such that every student feels this as a home away from home.

Healthy Practices – Student Canteen:

The institution has its own canteen facility on the campus where the students are provided with nutritious food at affordable price. The college canteen committees frequently taste the food and if any deviation from the agreed norms is noticed the canteen contractor is immediately instructed to rectify the same.

The Human Resource Development Celltrains its students to meet the demands of companies around the world as well as set up their own businesses by organizing personality development programs, workshops and interview skills.

Healthy Practices – Student Welfare:

An anti-ragging committee consisting Heads of the departments, senior staff members and few selected senior students headed by the principal looks after the welfare of the newly admitted students. The institutes prominently display the anti-ragging posters at various places like canteen, library, hostels, games & sports rooms and student waiting halls where the students generally gather. Every senior student is provided with the punishment details for indulging in ragging. Each student gives an undertaking saying that they will not indulge in any type of ragging activity and knows the punishment rules. The campus is absolutely ragging free.

Healthy Practices – Industrial Visits:

With an aim to go beyond academics industrial visits are arranged to develop the insights of the students – attaining practical knowledge and their theoretical applications thereof. Industrial visit is considered one of the most tactical methods of teaching. The main reason behind this is it lets students know things practically through interaction, working methods, and employment practices. Moreover, it gives exposure from an academic point of view. A group of students is taken for a guided tour of the premises of various industries, providing them with information about the background of the companies and their current position in the global business scenario.

Healthy Practices -360 Degrees Feedback:

The institutions are committed to seeking 360o feedback. The 360-degree evaluation system is focused on teaching and learning programs and performance of Faculty and Management. Annual performance appraisals enable Management in monitoring the standards and evaluation of institutional programs agreeing with institutions Vision and Mission. We acknowledge the right of students, staff or members of the committees to offer constructive suggestions on the policies of the Institutions.

Round the clock security is provided to the Institutions and Hotels. Every student and staff member is provided with an identity card. Unauthorized persons are easily recognized at the gate itself by the security guard. Firefighting equipment is provided at different vulnerable points.
