Counseling - A Helping Hand to Sooth You

Introduction:

Counseling is a non-judgmental activity where counselor and client work as a team to make positive changes in the client's approach to life; a person (client) who is basically psychologically healthy and facing adjustment, developmental and/or situational concerns or problems is empowered to gain awareness of him/herself and of his/her situation and to make decisions through the support and assistance offered by another person (counselor) through their relationship.

Goals

Counseling focuses on assisting the client to identify, talk about, explore and understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and to work out what action they want to take and to reach the roots of their concerns or problems. The goals which are finally agreed upon between client and counselor need to be realistic and governed by the presenting concerns or problems of the client and the limitations of the services which are available.

Confidentiality will be maintained not because it is important in building trust and productive for client-counselor relationship, but it is also an ethical and legal issue.

The Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

The establishment of the Internal Quality Assurance Cell in all institutions of higher education is a mandatory requirement of the University Grants Commission. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the performance of institutions. The IQAC is expected to make a significant and meaningful contribution in the post-accreditation phase of institutions. During the post-accreditation period, the IQAC is required to channelise the efforts and measures of an institution towards academic excellence.

The IQAC at Jai Hind College was established in 2005. In accordance with the guidelines, Jai Hind College has endeavoured to adhere to the objectives laid down by the UGC. These are implemented through a 16 member committee constituted of 14 senior teachers drawn from the 3 faculties as well as representatives of the Managing Board and the Local Society.  During the 5 year period of its establishment, the IQAC carried out a series of quality enhancement measures and has applied quality benchmarks/parameters in various activities of the institution. It has organized discussions, workshops, seminars and has promoted quality circles. The Annual Quality Assurance Reports have been regularly compiled and sent to the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The Re-accreditation by NAAC was successfully carried out in 2010 when Jai Hind College was accredited in  the “A” Grade.

Unfair Means Inquiry Committee

Chairperson                                 Prof. Ashok Wadia
Ex officio Members                      Prof. Ms. Monika Kumar, Dr  Anuradha Siddiqui, Dr Vijay Dhar.

Purpose: to investigate unfair means resorted to by students at the examinations held by college

In case of a student resorting to unfair means, the Principal issues a Show Cause notice to the concerned student. The case is reported to the UMIC. The Committee relies on the documents submitted by the supervisor / examiner. Reasonable opportunity, including oral hearing, is given to the student to present his / her defense. The reply given by the student to the Show Cause notice is considered by the Committee before making final recommendation. The Committee follows this procedure in the spirit of Natural Justice.

As regards the punishment, the Committee strictly follows the procedure and guidelines of Ordinance 5050 issued by the University of Mumbai.

The Unfair Means Inquiry Committee functions as a recommendatory body and submits its report to the Principal who takes the final action.

Any punishment is painful to the student as well as to the Committee. In Jai Hind we care about our students. We believe in preventing students from using unfair means. The Committee Chairperson addresses the supervisors before the conduct of Examinations. The supervisors warn the students before the commencement of the examination. Teachers have also been told to talk to the students and counsel them so as to prevent the use of unfair means. This has reduced the number of cases in the last few years.

We are looking forward to the day when there are Nil Cases of unfair means in Jai Hind College.
