The following issues made the department to adopt the LG (Local Guardian) Scheme.
To cope with the pressure to perform in current competitive world and to face the challenges of the society, students need LG support to achieve academic excellence. The need for addressing conflicts in attitudes, habits, and adaptability towards learning practices. Need to establish coordination between students and faculty members to conduct tutorials and practical classes. Tutorials are arranged by the mentors in coordination with the respective course teachers and experts who focus on problem-based learning. Need to assign joint tasks to build team spirit and collaborative learning.
About the Scheme:
A Batch of 10-20 students is allotted to a mentor /counsellor. Counselling diaries are provided to each counsellor to maintain the record of students under their patronage.
The LG meet the students once in a fortnight, The Parents/ Guardians of Irregular/ underperforming students are called to meet the LG and remedial measures are initiated for improvement. The LGs arrange remedial and tutorial classes for slow learners.
LG maintains the student information. HOD monitors the LG files periodically.
Evidence of success:

- The communications between LG and students strengthened the Student Teacher relationship.
- Academic performance of the students marginally improved.
- Participation in co-curricular activities is enhanced.
- Students get more focused to achieve their objectives.
