An institution progresses when its mainstay, the student community prospers. This can be seen in the various steps taken by the college to ensure a contented student force in its campus. Counselors are appointed to counsel the students and redress their grievances if any.

An institution grows only when it makes appropriate changes from time to time. Such a change is possible only if there is a feedback system.

The faculty appraisals are collected periodically within an informal framework.
