Human Values And Professional Ethics

Human Values: Values are our guidelines for our success. Basic human values refer to those values which are at the core of being human. The values which are considered basic inherent values in humans include right conduct, discipline, integrity, truth, honesty, loyalty, love, peace, etc. because they bring out the fundamental goodness of human beings and society at large. Our prime concern is to respect and maintain human values in the college campus.

Institutional View: The college organise several programs related to Human Values to enhance the human values in the character of the students. It is hoped that because of this effort made by the Institution towards Human Values we ensure that the students are made aware of the problems and their possible solutions through self- exploration. Also we ensure that the students internalize the fact that they have to respond to situations instead of reacting. At the same time, the Institution will facilitate the students to identify their  responsibilities towards society. Through the activities conducted an effort is made to rid society from the ills prevalent. Further through these programmes we ascertain that the students realize that they have a lot of potential which when realized will propel the society forward in a positive direction.
