Sensitization towards Green Practices and Values

Goal: At Anekant Institute of Management Studies (AIMS), we are dedicated to high academic standards to ensure perennial environmental practices. Our aim is to positively impact the communities in which we operate through energy-efficient practices and environmental education.

2. Objectives

  • To involve, educate, and train all students and staff members about environmental concerns to instill a lifelong sense of environmental responsibility.
  • To seek continuous advancement in Tree Plantation, more particularly ‘Medicinal’.
  • To inculcate in students a Sense of Pride by virtue of a Tree named after the Examination Topper.

3. Context

Of late, we have been experiencing the worst environmental issues affecting our health and lifestyle. Hence, being a Management Institute, we have contemplated Green Practices for societal wellbeing at large. The environmental values are perpetually ingrained in the students for harmonious and salubrious living.

4. Practice

In an effort to adopt environmentally conscious attitudes, the Institute’s Vasundhara Club has established specific measures which help preserve our eco-friendly campus. To measure and have quality enrichment, the Institute underwent ‘Green Audit’ by Botany Department, T. C. College, Baramati in 2017-18 followed by ‘ISO Green Audit Certification’ in 2018-19. The Institute received an appreciation for one of Student Centric Green practices particularly ‘Tree Plantation by the hands of Institute’s Topper Students in University Examination’ named after the Examination Topper.

5. Evidence of Success

Students get motivated and take leap forward steps for Environment Protection Activities like ‘One Student One Tree Campaign’, ‘33 Crore Tree Plantation’ etc. The increasing number of participation from students is evident from past year. Hence, the outcomes of the practice have been achieved.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required

We began this ‘Green Practices’ by planting trees by the MBA 1st & 2nd year University Exam Toppers every year with their position 1st, 2nd, & 3rd. It means 06 trees every year. Sometimes topper position has tie-up, in such case the number of trees get increased. Looking to the tree beautifulness, available campus area, & existing 750 trees, we decided to go for ‘One Tree by all Exam Toppers’.

1. Title of Practice

Facilitating rural students in pursuing Professional Education through CET Workshops

Anekant Institute of Management Studies is a student centric Institute. Since inception the Institute has taken enormous efforts to bring the rural and downtrodden classes in mainstay of education. Conducting CET workshops at UG colleges in the vicinity of Baramati is one of such initiatives to support rural students to pursue professional programme like MBA.

2. Objectives

  • To create awareness of Management Studies CET schedule and syllabus scheme in UG students.
  • To enhance general aptitude of aspirants required to crack CET.
  • To provide personalised assistance for solving the doubts and queries of students.
  • To create and offer study centre facilities and study material to rural students.

3. Context

Due to many reasons, rural students are devoid of information pertaining to higher education opportunities and procedure to seek professional carrier. Many students are left out from admission procedure due to lack of timely information about CET examinations. Also, during our interaction with UG students we observed that they have phobia about CET examinations.

4. Practice

The Institute has identified the concern of student’s fraternity and has come out with unique ‘CET Workshop Series’ program conducted at UG colleges in the vicinity of Baramati. These workshops are strategically planned and approval is taken with tentative schedule and budgetary provision from the Management. The workshop schedule is confirmed in consultation with the Principal or HOD of UG colleges. The workshop is conducted at the premises of UG colleges on self-finance basis. Institute has created separate study centre facilities at Institute with required study material for interested students.

5. Evidence of Success

The success of this activity is evident through the feedback received from participants of workshop. In the last five years, number of students appearing for the CET examination from Baramati vicinity has increased tremendously. More than 1200 students have benefitted from these workshops.

6. Problems Encountered and Resources Required:

Convincing the Principals and HoD’s of UG colleges for such workshops and making provision of time in their busy schedule was a major problem we faced in initial years. Off late due to the word of mouth by existing beneficiary and the quality of sessions delivered during the workshops, CET workshop series has become so popular in students fraternity that it has resulted in more demand of such workshops from UG College authorities.
