Student Union

With the increasing trend of small family and one or two children norms in the society, the youth today is lacking the sense of socialization. The need of the hour is to teach social service to youth through mutual co-operation, harmony and dedication towards society. They should work towards social, economic and political equality and justice ,as envisaged in our Indian Constitution.

The college can act as a medium to install social values, a forum for development of the student as ideal and dutiful citizen of a democratic and secular society.

The role of an academic institution should be to generate intellectual, social, cultural environment and discipline for the overall personality development in pursuance of the true meaning of education. To foster a healthy environment for learning, teaching and the development in the college, the Students' Union is formed in the college, with these broad objectives in mind.

The Students' Union consists of a Students' Council and Activity Societies.

The aim of the Students' Council is to encourage and strengthen the democratic values amongst the students and to train them in the duties and rights of democracy. The activities of Students' Union help the students to develop into responsible and value-oriented leaders.

On the other hand, the Activity Societies are formed to encourage innovative, artistic, literary, cultural, academic and sports activities. To promote active participation and leadership amongst students and to develop their creative talents, these activities help to promote scientific study and discussion on subjects of national and international importance. Formation of Activity Societies, according to the ordinance of M.P Govt Higher Education, are categorized into 4 different commities, formed in our college :

  • Cultural & Literary Commitee
  • Sports Commitee
  • Social Service & Welfare Commitee
  • Professional Courses & Career Counselling Commitee

The students are free to enroll themselves in any one of the societies of their choice, as regular member and in any number of societies as Associate Members.
