The following were chalked out successfully:

     Our staff are ever engaged in learning through seminars and workshops in this fast
     expanding knowledge age.
     Our institution provides education for the most brilliant and at the same time, it does not
      deny education to those who deserve to be educated. This is a very difficult mixture which
      our college is achieving. We have always learnt to dream and have faith in our capabilities.
     Our staff strives hard to bring harmony and to provide quality education among the
      assorted student community.
     To enable the graduate students to be socially conscious and to imbibe a spirit of concern
      for others, every department have adopted a village to serve the down trodden. The main
      objective of the outreach programme is to create awareness and socio concern among the
      students for the fellowmen and women, to create a model for service in the neighbouring
      communities and to conscientise the community through education, health programmes and
      women employment.
     Success in a field is possible only with the combination of entertainment and celebrations.
      This helped our students to be independent, team leaders and good organizers.
     Independence Day and Republic Day bring the feelings of loyalty and pride.
     The outstanding achievement of the union is the ability of the students to integrate and
      work together as a team.
     “Earn while you learn” – It caters the students who like to learn a trade that would make
      them self employed rather than self seekers.
