The institute believes that mentoring goes a long way in molding the career and life of young minds. In view of this, we have a strong Mentoring and Counselling cell at SIT. SIT maintains an environment where every student is encouraged and supported to reach his/her full potential not only academically but to develop one’s personality. Here, a group of 20 to 30 students is assigned to a faculty mentor. Regular meetings are conducted by mentors to solve any problems students faced or to counsel them. Mentor-mentee meetings and interaction with mentors is a forum where students discuss their academic or nonacademic problems with their mentors and resolve them. Here, the academic issues remain on the forefront but if any non-academic issue is there, the mentor works as a bridge to convey the issues further ahead to concerned authorities. We are also conducting parent-mentor meetings once a semester and preferably in the middle of the semester. It is a kind of direct interaction that a parent can have with the mentor and know about their ward’s progress. Further, parents are welcome to visit the Institute any time and interact with mentors, teachers, HoD, and other administrators if required.
