Institutional Best Practice -1


Title of the Practice- Inclusive Teaching Environment


Objective: As the majority of the student population resides in rural areas and is underprivileged, it is important to reach out to as many first-generation students as possible. With these considerations in mind, our major objective is to provide low-cost options for higher education, skill-based training, and equip students with the technological skills necessary to adapt to contemporary learning methods.


Context: Education is a light that points humanity in the correct direction. The goal of education is to instill logical thinking and self reliance in students, not only to make them read. The conventional teaching practise has been upgraded with the help of digital platforms in this pandemic situation, and skilled-based courses have been strengthened, all with the goal of serving the new generation of youth in the areas surrounding the college, which was built on the blood, sweat and land of local villagers. There is no alternative way to take education to new heights in the present era without the intervention of technology, and e-learning is especially important for youths to obtain a competitive advantage.


Practice: Our college is located in a rural, underdeveloped region where the majority of the population depends on agriculture or biri factory, a significant portion of the population comes from social and economically deprived backgrounds, and a significant proportion of our students are first-generation learners. In light of these considerations, our primary objective and challenge is to provide our students with access to Higher Education at the lowest possible cost, to provide them with skill-based training, and to upgrade them by teaching them soft skills and basic computer proficiency. To lower the dropout rate, which occurs for a number of reasons, a mental boost and financial assistance are provided. E-Learning also contributed to the improvement of quality in each department, as faculty members shared information and data via social media such as Whatsapp, websites, and YouTube channels, resulting in innovative teaching techniques, new ways of learning and interacting, and the simple exchange of ideas.


Evidence of Success: Communication and Goodwill of the institution have played a crucial role in promoting widespread recognition through this inclusive teaching environment.


  • As the sharing of ideas through e-learning methods became efficient at low marginal cost, teaching learning or student-teacher contact became a 24×7 event outside of a traditional classroom. Students have been allowed to maintain direct contact with their teachers in order to receive regular updates on their classes and for other academic goals. Notwithstanding obstacles caused by the epidemic, all students were able to take their exams with no dropouts.
  • E-knowledge has opened up new vistas for students and faculty alike, providing flexibility of learning experience, better access to information, and encouraging innovative and effective ways of learning as evidenced in project and class assignment preparation.
  • The active engagement of college students in workshops, seminars, debates, etc. has become a common occurrence, sparking a renewed desire to study and share ideas among the student body.


Problems Encountered and Resources Required: The enhanced digital learning could not be accessed by or offered to every students dwelling in distant areas. Individual student monitoring systems must be carefully maintained.

Title of the Practice- Promotion of Sustainable Environment in College Campus


Objective: Environmental sustainability is crucial in view of accelerating environmental degradation, and it can be achieved by the application of eco-friendly practises.


Context: A clean and lively environment is beneficial to learning and promotes successful learning. Our campus offers an abundance of plants and sunlight. A green campus drive is a programme that helps to safeguard the environment at a specific location. There are multiple efforts to address the various environmental education challenges. Green audit is the most efficient and environmentally friendly technique to manage environmental issues. It is the obligation of each individual to provide professional care that takes into account economic, financial, social, and environmental factors. To preserve the clean and green environment in college campus, a balance must be maintained between waste usage and transformation/disposal. The college generates a substantial amount of green waste, which is effectively decomposed as manure.


Practice: Our institution is devoted to establishing an eco-friendly and sustainable campus. Instilling the importance of environmental preservation and environmental sustainability in the students and faculty through the implementation of the following measures:


  • DNC College’s campus is beautiful green, featuring gardens, lawns, flowers, bushes, and ancient trees.


  • The Faculties and College students collaborated to preserve the Green Campus within the College.


  • There is a designated parking spot at the main gate; vehicle movement and parking on the main campus and play ground are banned.


  • Since the campus is so close to the Ganga River, it is rich in flora and fauna. The college features a large pond with a diverse aquatic flora and fauna.


  • An on-site hydroponic garden including over fifty varieties of crop plants promotes a healthy environment in the campus.


  • The college organises numerous events and activities to promote the Save Paper campaign on a regular basis.


  • Significant days, such as World Environment Day and World Ozone Day, are celebrated through plantation programmes, processions with placards and banners, etc., to promote environmental protection and conservation awareness.


  • The Green Campus Committee and Department of Environmental Science have declared the entire campus as “No Plastic Zone.”


  • Regularly, non-biodegradable, electrical, and hazardous materials are discarded.

Evidence of Success:


  • We were able to raise awareness about the environment and the importance of sustainability among our college’s employees and students. During various campaigns, our students have received public praise; many have committed to use resources properly and to make every effort to protect and conserve the environment.
  • On and around campus, trees are planted and maintained to.
  • In order to preserve natural flora and fauna, ecological succession is maintained in the pond. Any type of human-made disturbances is prohibited there.
  • The College has been designated a “No Plastic Zone.”
  • Wastes are disposed of in a systematic manner.



Problems Encountered and Resources Required: The primary obstacle to accomplishing this initiative is the absence of a desire to assume social and environmental responsibilities. Hence, there is a need for widespread knowledge among college students, who may then disseminate the message to all segments of society. Transitioning to sustainable green campus is a costly endeavour that requires government support and participation in the form of financial aid and subsidies.
