ANNUAL ACTION PLAN 2005

 

Dibrugarh Hanumanbux  Surajmal Kanoi College, one of the most prestigious educational institutions of upper Assam, has undertaken the noble plan of imparting education to the students of a huge locality extending even beyond Jorhat district following its exemplary reputations of past years. In this year, i.e. 2005-06, the college is fully prepared to impart all kinds of knowledge to the students with the help of a batch of most experience hard working, diligent teachers with illuminating careers.

            But, in spite of galaxy of brilliant teachers and their untiring efforts to develop the horizon of the mental and intellectual world of the students, we, the DHSK College teachers’ family intimately feels that the teaching of traditional subjects is not sufficient to the students in the perspective of newer concepts of higher education. The changing scenario of higher education strongly demands that the students must be able to put his/her education to bring changes in socio-economic fields. Keeping this in view, the DHSK College is going to introduce a series of career oriented courses i.e. Short-Term Certificate Courses with a view to enable the students to achieve socio-economic establishment after completion of their formal education.

            In addition to this, the DHSK College administration opens a Gymnasium Hall for the physical development of the students. The college playground is proposed to be constructed so that the outdoor games can be played easily at any time of the year. A Yoga Centre of the benefit of the students is also going to establish by the end of August/September, 2005.

            The College Auditorium is one of the most important factors for intellectual development of the students where seminars, symposia and other talent search & development programmes can be held. The present Auditorium of the college requires some repairing and the college is taking plan make it a modern one.

            In the field of academic development the college has planned to hold UGC Seminars and Conferences in National and State Level and necessary steps for UGC Financial Aid has been taken to that instant. Moreover, organizations like PILGRIMAGE, SPIC-MACAY, SOFEC etc. are also going to organize various development programmes among students.

            The college taking the plan to computerize the college library and is going to install the SOUL, suggested by INFLIBNET, software for library accessibility, which will directly facilitate the students to have newer information regarding higher education.

            The internet connectivity has already been done in the college and its service will be extended to the students very soon. The college has its own Fax facility (0373-2321351). A website of the college (http/dhsk.org) with all information has already been introduced although some relevant data will have to be updated very soon.

            The college has an association of ex-students called DHSK College Alumni Association. This is developed in an organizational pattern so that the college may be benefited both academically and financially cherishing the love and help of the ex-students.

            The Information and Career Guidance Cell is organized and operated in DHSK College to enable the students to have new and modern information to build their bright career through counseling and consultation with different career oriented programmes and bulletins. The Cell has a direct link with different institutions like IIE (Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship) etc.

VISION:

The college has a vision to computerize the College Office within 2010 so that all accounts and records can be kept in modern electronic device. For fulfillment of it, the whole of the existing office staff should considerably be given computer literacy, which will take sufficient time.

            In addition to it, the library of the college, which is one of the richest libraries of Assam, is to be computerized totally. The process of computerization of library is progress. The college anticipates that within the time frame that may also be achieved.

The college takes initiative to introduce career oriented courses for the benefit of the students. In near future, the college shall be able to initiate more certificate courses, which will obviously assist the students to build a better future.

The college has great lacunae in terms of its playground. Now the college steps to develop the existing playground as one of the best playgrounds of the city. During rainy season, it becomes difficult to the students to go to the Science Building from the Main Arts Building. To eliminate this difficulty, the college proposes to make a shaded passes connecting two buildings.

Lastly, the college is moving forward to mould a better future by pursuing the teachers to engage themselves in newer concepts of higher education so that DHSK College can be raised as one of the best institution with potential for excellence. The college is also preparing for NAAC’s reaccredidation to be held on 2008 with full vigour so as to retain its earlier prestige of achieving B++ Grade. To have our noble goal, it is very much desirable that the all governmental, non-governmental, social or individual including the district administration should come forward with benevolence and optimism to make our institution a centre of potential for excellence.
