SDC aims to produce Ethical Graduates; therefore, our team supports the ethical and moral development of students from point of entry onwards through a structured approach. SDC recognizes that each student has a different set of aspirations and requirements. Keeping in view the diversity of students, SDC supervises the Value and Ethics Committee (VEC) that deals with the ethical, moral, and social matters of students. However, in case of any disciplinary matter, senior members of the Value and Ethics Committee (VEC) take the prudent decision for the betterment of students; thus, developing ethical graduates.
Student Development Centre offers counseling and guidance to students who face various challenges in their personal growth, such as academic problems, adjustments, emotions management, interpersonal relationship, etc. Our professionally trained counselors provide the university students with a quality space to listen to their inner concerns, understand what they need, and explore effective strategies to help them achieve their personal goals.
