‘Coffee with VC’ at Jamshedpur Women’s College, students raise issues at campus

Jamshedpur, July 13: In the second edition of Coffee with VC organised at the Jamshedpur Women’s College, students got opportunity to interact with Kolhan University vice-chancellor Shukla Mahanty and also air their concerns. About 200 students from the various departments interacted with Mahanty. Students got opportunity to discuss their problems over a cup of coffee.

The students demanded dress code for the security guards of the college hostel. On students demand, Mahanty asked the college principal Poornima Kumar to immediately implement a dress code system for the security guards of the college hostel.

Students also raised concerns over delay in issues from the tribal welfare department. “The East Singhbhum education department has started deploying B.Ed students in government schools for training but schools in rural areas, we would like if girls can get a city school to do the training,” said a B.Ed student of the Jamshedpur Women’s College.

Answering the above question, Mahanty said that the university shall take up the matter with the district education officer (DEO) and will look into the possibilities if these girls could teach in the college’s intermediate section. The first Coffee with VC was organised a few months ago at the Tata College, Chaibasa.

She asked the students to share their queries with her and assured that she will revert positively to the students. She promised them that syllabus confusions and delays in the re-evaluation process would be sorted out quickly after many students there spoke of the issue.
The students also raised their concerns over improving infrastructure and facilities in their college hostels and the lack of books in the college library.

“The Coffee with VC is a novel way to let students interact directly with the VC so that they can discuss the problems in colleges. The university will try to sort out these problems. This also gives an opportunity for students to gel well with the administration,” said an official.

The vice-chancellor of Kolhan University, has expressed an urgent need for restructuring of colleges under the varsity to improve standards of education in the region.The vice chancellor said that there was an urgent need to improve infrastructure and normalise academic session so that students are not forced to leave for metro cities for higher studies.
