Students are active and enthusiastic in organizing a huge variety of initiatives, fresher’s day for welcoming the newcomers, exhibition open to public, intercollegiate competitions, organizing seminar at regional level, act as student zoo volunteers, publishing the newsletter of the department and coordinating the Zoology association activities. They campaign for human rights, and promote on-campus intercultural exchange. By applying their academic knowledge, our students often embody department’s mission of thinking and acting with a biodiversity conservation mind. In the process, they have formed friendships and networks across various students of other disciplines.
Student support services are an essential component of higher education programmes. Students’ retention, success and satisfaction are their main objectives. Department has initiated various strategies for the design and provision of student support services.
We envision the total transformation of the young women for their enrichment and of the society at large and the nation as a whole.
