POLICY FOR MENTORING OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS
In the modern society, the students go through various kinds of academic and psycho-socio experiences for which mentoring on a day-to-day basis is necessary. Moreover, at the graduate level the students are not mature enough to take their decisions therefore timely mentoring is required and the teachers are expected to give sufficient time to listen to the specific needs of the students so that correct assessment of the problem can be done and proper and continuous mentoring is provided. The college hopes that the mentoring provided by the college may help in transforming a student to have a well-formed identity with greater self confidence to face the future challenges.
Keeping the above in mind, the college has framed a mentoring policy which is as follows:
The mentoring has to be done in the following areas:
Personal problems, and
Each student shall be issued a “Mentoring Card” by the college and when the student approaches the mentor for the purpose of mentoring, he/she must possess the “Mentoring Card” issued by the college.
The mentor shall sign on the “Mentoring Card” every time the student approaches the mentor for the purpose of mentoring.
Each mentor must receive the complaint of the student through a written application. Thereafter the action taken must be written on the back of the above mentioned application submitted by the student and a copy of each of such application must be properly filed for the purpose of record.
Each faculty member shall be given some students for the purpose of mentoring. The academic, personal and other problems of a student may be dealt by the mentor himself/herself. However, if the student is facing some non-academic personal problem due to misconduct of some students of this college, inside or outside the college campus, then the mentor can direct the concerned student to the Chief Proctor of the college for necessary action and relief/remedy.
If the mentor concludes that problem of the student has Psycho-Socio nature then the mentor should direct the concerned student to the college counselor in the college counseling cell for necessary counseling and relief.
In case of extreme harassment of the girl student, the chief proctor may refer the case to the President of College Women’s Cell for necessary action and remedy/relief.
The original copy of the application submitted by the student may, if necessary, be referred to the Chief Proctor or College Counselor or President of College Women’s Cell for necessary action and relief/remedy.
