Student Self Governance

Objectives of the Practice:
The objective of Student Self Governance is to protect and improve the rights, opportunities, and quality of life of every student at the Institutional level. This approach means that students agree to self-regulate their actions in order to maintain a healthy and safe community. With self-governance, students are responsible and accountable for their choices, words, and actions as individual members of the campus community.

The Context:

Student Self Governance is an initiative take up by the Institution in the year 2012. It is a council of students selected through interview process. The predominant ideology behind establishing SSG is, to enhance one’s leadership skills and enhance learning off class too. SSG plays a significant role in bridging the gap between the governing body and students need. SSG is involved in Management review meetings which thus satisfies the student centric value of the college. Self-governance isn’t for every student find it to be the right fit. But for those who can commit to maintaining a shared set of community values, it can be a great tool for creating a positive campus experience and teaching critical life skills. This practice aims at developing and appointing a team of students on positions equivalent to the actual governing body of the institute which helps them understand the various challenges faced to run an institution on the given day. Students are expected to hold themselves in high esteems inside and outside the classroom. Within the framework of student self-governance, students have the latitude to be creative, assume ownership, develop leadership, take risks, and learn from their mistakes. It facilitates the ideas and recommendations of today’s youth and allows them to transform these ideas into upcoming venture by providing them the necessary resources to execute their well-thought out plans in the future.
