You, We and SPAC Together We Can And We Will Make A Difference
The students play a pivotal role in an Educational Institution. Focusing on the Teaching-Learning-Evaluation process and hence providing Quality Education through various channels is the key concept behind Students Quality Assurance Cell (SQAC). It emphasizes on an overall development of all aspects of the students. SQAC also promotes student engagement within the institution and contributes to quality enhancement. It emphasizes the learner perspective during quality reviews, thus helping to focus the review team on the student learning experience. Student Participation in feedback and evaluation activity promotes overall student development, including the development of their critical skills.
SQAC addresses regulatory requirements on the part of the institution regarding student involvement in quality assurance. This responsibility is effectively accomplished by the Teacher Representatives of SQAC team. This team consists of dedicated interdisciplinary Faculty Members as follows:
- Mr. Rishi Agrawal (Dept. of Mathematics)-Convener SQAC
- Dr. (Ms.) Mala Singh (Dept. of Psychology)
- Dr. Dhanraj Mane (Dept. of Marathi)
- Dr. (Ms.) Razeka Khan (Dept. of Commerce)
- Dr. Ajay Yoel (Dept. of Physics)

An Orientation Programme was organized on 16th August, 2013. The Theme of the Programme was based on a Hindi movie song Saathi haath badhana. This Video which was shown to the students had a symbolic representation of an efficient Team work. It emphasized on the Contribution and dedication of all the interdependent team members towards achieving the goal. Similarly, all the Students and the Teachers can work together to improve the quality of Education and transform the Students as well as the institution at large.
WORKSHOP ON QUALITY
A workshop on Quality was organized on 11th February 2014. It was a group activity where the students presented posters depicting the true meaning of Quality. The Posters effectively conveyed the various qualities that are appreciated in Students, Teachers as well as an Institution. The students gave a presentation of their posters with a wonderful explanation of all the qualities to the audience. Basic objective was to understand what qualities the students expect from their teachers and institution as well as make them realize the qualities a student must hold. This workshop made them so emotional that they wanted to personally thank each and every teacher who has contributed in their success and achievements. The Students thanked the teachers for their dedication, determination, care, Empathy; etc towards the students. The participants shared their feedback, and the written feedback was taken by Dr. Jyoti Shiwalkar, IQAC coordinator.
An Orientation Programme was organized on 14th August 2014, based on the theme Best Student Award. This theme was an inspiration from our very own student Ms. Avnika Ashwini Gupta who was awarded with the most coveted Best Student Award by RTM Nagpur University for the session 2012-13. She was chosen the Best amongst thousands of students in RTM Nagpur University. The basic idea behind it was to motivate the students to excel in their academics as well as other areas to outshine and create a niche for them. The Teachers assured them all the support to achieve their goals.
LECTURE ON STRESS AND TIME MANAGEMENT & FEED-BACK SESSION
A lecture on Stress and Time Management and a Feedback session were organized on 16th February 2015. A certain amount of stress is an inevitable and useful part of studying. It assists students to work harder, be focused and return to study rather than doing other things. However, if students are too stressed, they cannot study effectively. Moreover, if Time Management is not done by students it adds to their stress level. The Convener of SQAC, Mr. Rishi Agrawal, identified this major concern amongst the students and counseled them to overcome the problems by providing them useful tips on managing Stress and Time. The institution enshrines the value of student participation in quality assurance activities at all levels. To achieve and create benchmarks, an Annual Feed-back Session from the student representatives was taken by Dr. Jyoti Shiwalkar, IQAC coordinator.
