HRD @ SHC
Human Resources Development at SHC is looked at from four angles
Primarily, the college is meant for developing human resources for the society through its core functions of teaching-learning, research and extension, with students as the primary focus.
The HRD process starts from the day of admission, through the personal interview encouraging students to think about their future and career, through the induction programmes, initiation ceremony, orientation sessions etc. Later on, with the insistence on their being part of at least one club or fora for a holistic and integrated development, the students are steered to fine-tune their skills. As a policy, students are encouraged to join in three varieties of clubs or fora: a) socially-oriented clubs/fora, b) career-oriented ones and c) talent clubs. The Career Guidance cell and Placement cell function together to orient students towards their careers and provides periodical training and orientation regarding soft skills and other related requirements. A spiritual affairs committee looks into the spiritual grooming of the students, providing them with insights on the occasion of various religious feasts and providing an annual occasion for spiritual animation. A life-orientation programme is offered annually for the final year students. Mentoring is the core programme by which a student’s resources are identified and encouraged. It is coupled with the programme of value education through an interactive session planned and reviewed every month.
The students are also encouraged and supported to take part in various cultural and art competitions for which there are separate guidelines. It is prescribed that during the course of their study, every student is to be encouraged to take part in at least one national/international academic programme and be part of organising one such programme.
