The Context :
In recent era, everyday living has become more fast-paced with culture being visual and technologically driven leading into gradual erosion of communicative competence and social skills. This has led life to a complex web and not the linear progression that it once was. This lack of stasis inevitably means that, along with everything else, the role and responsibilities of the university teacher has to be of mentor and counsellor.
The Practice :
A common mentoring system is adopted across the University with slight modifications to suit the needs of the constituent institutes. A class counsellor is assigned 15/25 students for counselling under him. Counsellor would necessarily be a subject teacher of any course which a student is taking during his/her academic year. Counsellors meet the students regularly and record the outcome of the meetings. The counsellors also update the student's progress to parents whenever needed.
