The Institution’s mission clearly defines its purpose within the context of Higher Education and indicates who the Institution serves and what it intends to accomplish. The mission and goals are developed and recognized by the Institution with the participation of its members and are used to develop and shape its programs and practices and to evaluate its effectiveness.
In the present scenario of Mizoram in particular, and India in general where decent jobs are predominated by the government sector and entry into service is mostly through combined competitive examinations at a time when unemployment amongst the urban educated youth is most prevalent, it is imperative that students are geared not solely for theoretical subject study but also to face such various examinations wherein they are given freedom to choose their own optional subjects.
The College, therefore, does not feel necessary and worthwhile to predetermine subject combinations and force on the students, as it partly circumvents a general tendency among students to lose interest in their studies which results in shortage of attendance in some subject classes, failure in exams and general irregularities due to predetermined subject combinations which includes one that the intending student might dislike. No rigid subject combinations are made. Students are free to make any subject combinations of their choice.
The College diligently follows its mission in the following ways:
1. a) Students from disadvantaged community and economically backward household can avail admission to the Institution on the same rule as the economically affluent household. The Institution does not discriminate its prospective students on any ground. b) Differently - abled are encouraged to enter the Institution. But so far no such case has been faced by the Institution.
c) Potential students from disadvantaged community and the economically backward household are encouraged by informing them of the differential modes of payment of fees that the Institution can offer such as:
(i) On an installment basis
(ii) One time payment at the time of disbursement of their scholarships/ financial aid
from the government.
It is a privilege to state that faculty members often contribute in cash towards admission of economically-backward students.
(iii) Sports personnel are informed about the reservation policy that the Institution has
for them. This makes it easy for them to enter without vying for limited seats with other admission seekers.
(iv) Students from the neighbouring states Tripura, Manipur categorized as outsiders
are admitted without any discrimination in the Institution.
The Institution makes it a practice to devote the first week of the Academic Session for assessing the previous knowledge of the newly admitted students by conducting skill test (oral or written) in subject knowledge. To bridge the knowledge gap of the newly admitted students, teachers spend the next consecutive week of their classes for orientation of the Course Syllabi.
The institution identifies slow and advanced learners based on the following strategies:
a) Regular class tests and assignments are key indicators that the Institution employs to tell apart slow and advanced learners in any given class.
b) Weak students, once identified, are encouraged to put in extra effort, while at the same time advanced learners are encouraged to excel by providing them with extra study materials.
c) At the end of the calendar year, internal exams are conducted in order to evaluate students’ progress which is at the same time a preparatory measure for the ensuing University Exam.
The institution has provisions for tutorial classes as may be listed:
a) Tutorial Classes are scheduled in the routine and also conducted on holiday
b) A remedial Spoken English Class is conducted for students weak in the English language communication.
c) Students are notified that faculty members are available for consultation during the College hours. The teachers are often consulted at their homes when students are in doubt.

Students keep pace with the recent development in various subjects by attending seminars, debates and discussions organized in and outside the Institution. Students are also informed to make use of educational TV channels and the internet to acquaint themselves with various emerging trends.

Any grievance regarding evaluation in the Internal Exams is intimated to the subject teacher concerned for clarification and redressal.
