The college-alumni interaction was a focal point and their achievements were lauded too. The fact that the college has produced an IAS Officer (Bihar Cadre), a Judge, several Advocates, many Chartered Accountants, Goa Civil Services officers and Law Enforcement Officers, Software Engineers and Consultants, Researchers both in India and abroad – in its short history was linked to the College Vision Statement “To Nurture the Students to Nourish the Society”. The Peer Team was appreciative of the Vision statement being translated into reality.

This was more so when the team perceived the contribution of the College in extension activities. The fund raising efforts for both local and national calamities, commitment to social causes, village adoption scheme, paper bag making and distribution to promote environmental friendly practices among local vendors (Mission Bye Plastic), and being the foremost academic institution for blood donation program came in for high praise.

The strength of the College on the sports field and the cultural arena was duly applauded. The cultural program for the Peer Team was given a standing ovation. The plaudits garnered by the sports persons were appreciated.  The Peer team emphasized and highlighted the pivotal role played by the Open-Door admission policy of the College in meeting the aspirations of this rural belt.

The Peer team in their concluding remarks focused on the strengths that the staff added by way of being research guides, having published books and papers and most importantly for being a harmonious and committed faculty. They recommended that new courses be initiated, vacant faculty positions be filled, hostel and transport facility be added and expanded, to pursue more research oriented activities and to strengthen linkages with Industries and Civil Society organizations.

These new interventions will take the College to greater heights. The Peer Team wished the College well and hoped that the College will reach its destiny as a College to be reckoned with on the national level.

Congratulations GCQ..!!!
