In addition, the Institution receives donations from a host of well-wishers (including past and present teachers and alumni) to support and encourage students. The Students’ Welfare Committee, a unit of the RKSMVV Teachers’ Council, also has a Students’ Welfare Fund specially set up to support students’ needs.
B. Medical Facilities
Medical assistance to students is given at three levels
For a payment of Rs. 200 per year, each student is provided with a Health Card with which she can avail of:
The hostel has a sick room and a doctor on call for medical emergencies. First Aid facilities are readily available both in the College and in the Hostel.
Faculty members are available to students for academic and personal counselling.
Since 2009, the College has been organising periodic counselling for students (individually and collectively) in collaboration with the Centre for Counselling Services and Studies in Self-Development, Jadavpur University.
The Mentor-Ward system, introduced in 2014, has proved to be a very successful method that helps the students cope with their problems, as well as develop a bond with their college. All students are split up in small, mixed groups of 7-8 members, and assigned to a teacher-mentor who interacts with them at a close personal level. The mentor-mentee group meets at least once a month for an hour in a specific slot allotted in the time table; though the teacher-mentor is always available for individual meetings during college hours and beyond. This helps her monitor their academic and co-curricular performances, as well as mentor and support them throughout their stay in the College. The teacher-mentor also acts as a counsellor to her wards.
