With this objective in mind the institution decided to maintain its surroundings free from pollution of all kinds. Carbon neutrality zone has been thought of as one such programme that would create awareness among the students to keep the campus green, making it a total ‘Carbon Neutrality Zone’.

    1. The Context.

    Our campus is blessed with the bounty of nature and has not been polluted by leaving carbon foot prints. However, we are conscious of environmental issues at the global front, hence, we have taken measures to retain our campus as a carbon neutrality  zone by planting trees, maintaining the fernhouse, installing solar panels, and bio degradable waste management units. While implementing these measures we have had financial crunch and labour deployment problems.

    1. The Practice.

    To put the ‘Carbon Neutrality Zone’’ project into practice the IQAC allocated responsibilities to various active wings of the college like NSS, NCC, Rangers and Rovers, Red Cross and cultural committee to prepare the plan of action for the academic year to intensify its practice and application. Likewise these units conduct and organise various programmes to enforce the project into practice. The units have taken it upon themselves to conduct the following activities to strengthen the said project. Activities like vanamahotsava , maintaining herbal garden, vermi composting unit, periodical inspection and   maintenance of solar panels, regular cleaning of the campus, maintenance of the garden and many such activities are conducted to keep the campus green.

     

     

     

     

    1. Evidence of Success

    Climate change and Global warming is a core issue of debate all over the world. This is a significant matter to be incorporated in the Indian higher education too.The Carbon Neutrality practice in our campus is a small step forward in creating social consciousness among the youth and in promoting national well being.

     

    1. Problems Encountered and Resources Required.

    Naturally while implementing any programme hurdles crop up and obstacles come in the way. However, we have been able to cut across these barriers in our own way. As we are under credit based semester scheme shortage of time is a major problem.And sometimes getting an expert resource person also would be a problem and budgeting these programmes poses problems as we do not get sufficient labour force and enough funds to keep it going. Our students come from far off places and they do not have transport facilities after late hours and hence we find it difficult to squeeze in programmes within the scheduled hours of our system.

     

     

    Title of the Practice:

    Regular Folk Arts Training.

    1. Goal

    The strength of India as a nation lies in its diversity which is reflected through its multifarious culture, tradition and customs, practised by different communities that add color to the nation. Keeping this in mind we thought of introducing Folk Arts training in the campus to preserve, promote and spread culture, customs and traditions, propagating it through young artists. At any point of time one should not allow our distinct culture and traditional practices to die down because we believe that the strength of the nation lies only in bringing together these diverse culture and traditions under one umbrella of the nation.

    1. The Context.

    India is well known for its cultural diversity world over. Hence the Indian universities have placed importance to cultural furtherance as part of its curriculum and in the light of this we have given importance to promote folk arts. Through its practice we wish to uphold our distinct and unique culture and also respect other cultures by practising cultural exchange programmes. This practice has strengthened secular feeling among the students. The folk art training will ensure the continuation of cultural heritage, its customs, and practice and help the youth to carry it forward.

     

    1. The Practice.

    With the association of cultural organizations training camps and

    certificate courses in folk arts are regularly conducted. The cultural

    committee of the college has trained regular Folk Art troops in

    collaboration with Karnataka Kodava Sahithya Academy. The committee conducts practice sessions and deploys students in teams to perform in other institutions, festivals, and national forums. Students take part in various competitions conducted in the district by the universities and state organizations. The Mangalore university has Kodava Adyayana Peeta (Centre for Kodava Studies) where in our members involve in their activities. The NSS and NCC have participated and also have organized cultural exchange programmes.

    1. Evidence of Success

    Our cultural teams participate in state and national level cultural fests and competitions. The young ambassadors of our college spread and promote the unique feature of our culture all over. They bring laurels to the institution and by training others they help in preserving the uniqueness of the land.

    1. Problems Encountered and Resources Required.

    As our institution is Rural based and caters to the students of several villages and as our students come from lower income strata and from far off places and they do not have transport facilities after late hours and hence we find it difficult to squeeze in programmes within the scheduled hours of our system. Besides, fund mobilization  and providing costumes are the  major hurdles faced.
