An educational institution is not merely a place for disseminating knowledge in a confined space. Instead its domain of influence extends far beyond and penetrates deep into the society. The primary goal of education being imparted in schools is to mould students into good human beings equipped with knowledge and skills that make maximum use of their innate abilities and potential. Value education aims at character building of students so that they grow into thoughtful individuals sensitive towards human suffering and have motivation to eradicate social vices. Thus, teachers who produce social engineers through their teaching can be seen as real architects of society. Shia PG College is mindful of its social responsibility and has been doing its part with finesse. The best way to make students realize the nature of social problems is by letting them develop their own view of a given problem and its consequences as primary observers. Extension activities come very hands in achieving this goal. For instance, students can be made to understand the consequences of violence against women if they are introduced to the plight of victims of dowry and acid attack etc. For this reason, the college lays special emphasis on extension activities aimed at various social problems. In addition to this, the college organizes awareness programs on various social problems of national and International importance. This is evidenced by the existence of specific committees meant to address diverse issues.
a. The Green Initiative Committee it is responsible for ensuring adherence to eco-friendly measures inside campus as well as in the surrounding areas. The major initiatives taken by this committee involve restriction on carbon emission in the campus, a ban on the use of plastic, electing structures for proper waste disposal and plantation drives.
b. The Gender Equity Committee it ensures a fair treatment of the fairer sex and their proportionate representation in all spheres.
c. The Extension Activities Committee This committee has an exhaustive schedule of involving students in various social service initiatives. In spite of all this, the college is committed to expand its network of social activities in future.#greenconcern #communityconcern
