Mentor-mentee counseling sessions
Student Mentoring, counseling and guidance are important pillars of student support services. The students need this support to overcome their personal, social and academic problems which impede their studies. The students often face pressure after joining the professional courses. These may be of varied nature, which may be academic, personal, or career related. At times, due to these pressures they feel stressed and this interferes in their pursuit. There is cross cultural, neo ethnic convergence, increasing academic competition, peer pressure, unique teenage problems, mounting career demands etc among the students community. To prevent students from going through travails of such stress factors, an independent well-coordinated system for mentoring and counseling system is in
place in the university. Mentors regularly meet students to solve their problems, track their progress in academics, co curricular activities, personality development, communication skills, career counseling, holistic development, life skills and interpersonal relationships. Parents are kept in the loop and are periodically updated on their ward’s performance.
Students with learning disability are identified and are given special attention. Remedial classes are also organized to help and motivate students with learning disability. Remedial classes are arranged for them as per the need and one to one advisory inputs are provided both on academic and personal front.
