34. Participation in Institutional Social Responsibility (ISR) and Extension activities:

Students participate in NSS activities and seminars conducted by the College.

35. SWOC analysis of the department and future plans.

Strength: Coordination among faculty members and students and good results.

Weakness: Most students of the Department are first generation learners. The Failure on the part of the college to recruit and retain contractual and part-time teachers is another weakness for the department.

Opportunities: Efforts are on to enhance the quality of the students by giving them opportunities of interaction with the Retired faculty members of Department by means of special classes.

Challenges: The placement of the output in different government and non-government sectors and self-employment is one of the main challenges before the department. High concentration of students in Mathematics is another challenge before the department.

Future plan:  Considering needs of the present generation we have to adopt technologies to reach in the newer heights so that our students can cope-up with other students of various institutions in India and abroad.
