Sensitization towards Green Practices and ValuesGoal: 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.
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.
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.
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.
Facilitating rural students in pursuing Professional Education through CET WorkshopsAnekant 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
