Best Practice -I: NSS Activities

National Service Scheme (NSS) is an integral part of our Mission Mahavidyalaya as it helps in instilling social awareness and responsibilities among our students. NSS activities also inculcate a sense of discipline and team spirit and train our students to become more socially conscious and helping citizens in the future. Our Mission Mahavidyalaya has four units of NSS under the supervision of four programme officers. They regularly participate in different environmental and health drive programmes like Blood Donation camps, clean and healthy atmosphere drive, healthy sanitary movement and pure drinking water campaign. The NSS volunteers maintain the gardens at Barda railway station and Chaitanyapur other than keeping the college campus and the surrounding areas clean and green. Special occasions like World Environment Day (5 June), NSS Day (24 September), Constitution Day (26 November), World AIDS day (1 December) etc. are observed by the volunteers. Furthermore, special NSS camps are organized by each unit every year.

The College has FOUR Active NSS Units, Unit I-IV which are actively engaged in several activities within and outside the college. Some of these in 2019-20 are:

  1. Organizing a special survey at adopted villages during July - October 2019
  2. Celebration of Independence Day on 15.08.19
  3. Celebration of Constitution Day, 26.11.2020 culminating in Ambedkar Jayanti on 14th April, 2020
  4. Observance of World AIDS Day on 01.12.19
  5. Observance of World Environment Day 05.6.2020, tree plantation campaign from 6th June, 2020 to 12th June, 2020
  6. Celebration of International Yoga Day 21.06.2020.

The NSS volunteers of Vivekananda Mission Mahavidyalaya under the guidance of NSS programme officers did a splendid job to fight against COVID 19 and took part in post Amphan activities. They undertook a number of activities mentioned below to help people.

  1. Building social awareness by putting posters in our college, hostel premises and in the nearby villages
  2. Post videos in college Facebook page
  3. Food Preparation and Distribution by NSS volunteers
  4. Helping migrant labourers and the farmers in harvesting the paddy crop
  5. Distribution of food items, masks and liquid soaps to the needy
  6. Financially helped a cancer patient and our college canteen staffs

Best Practice - II: Promotion of research activities among the teaching faculty

The college takes upon itself the responsibility to encourage the teachers, both young and experienced, to pursue research interests as the college has significant number of PhD faculties. So for pursuing their research the college provides them research ambience, necessary library, laboratory facilities etc. Teachers are also encouraged to participate in different national and international seminars, conferences and to apply for different research projects, both major and minor from different funding agencies, to publish articles in reputed national/international journals and arrange seminars and conferences, to make

associations with research communities thereby widening the scope of their research work and collaboration. The IQAC of the college has fixed publication targets for the faculty to achieve in the next three years. Both in publications in UGC CARE listed journals and also publications in edited volumes/books/conference proceedings (National and International) the IQAC has set targets for the faculty to achieve. This setting of targets is surely very ambitious in nature but the college IQAC feels that along with the need to garner API points for CAS promotion, this target setting will spur the teachers into serious research activity.

The following are the major practices related to the promotion of research activities in the college:

  1. Regular meeting of the Research Cell to monitor the research activities done by college faculty.
  2. Encouraging the teachers to apply for different research projects, both Major and Minor from reputed national funding agencies like UGC, DBT, DSTSERB etc. through the college Research Cell and in collaboration with university and nearby research institutes.
  3. Encouraging the faculty members to publish their research articles in journals of national and international repute (UGC CARE listed) and books from reputed publication houses.
  4. Upgrading the laboratories and libraries.
  5. Encouraging the teachers to attend different seminars / workshops / Refresher Courses to enrich their knowledge.
  6. Organizing seminars and workshops relating to modern trends of multidisciplinary research.
  7. Reimbursing the registration fees of teachers attending and presenting papers in national/international seminars (Maximum amount Rs. 500/- per year).

We are in the early stages of this promotional process and the process till now has not yielded tangible results. We are, however, hopeful that in a year or two we will have results to show for our efforts. Research, surely, as we all know is not an overnight activity and it takes time for the results to arrive. Total number of research articles published in UGC CARE listed journals during 2019-20 stands at 2. Other than this, there are 3 prestigious publications in national and international journals and 2 in edited volumes. As far as paper- presentations in seminars are concerned, there are 9 paper-presentations in national and international seminars. The total combined output surely is not much to write about but we are confident that the steps we have taken will ensure a far better yield in the coming years.
