The committee takes special surprise rounds and maintains day to day contact with the students to ensure that no untoward incident occurs in the Institute premises. All students and their parents / guardian are required, at the time of admission, to submit an affidavit that they are aware of the repercussions of ragging.
Though it is not the responsibility of the Institute to provide jobs to students, the Institute has a Placement cell that attempts to bring together students who are in the process of completing their studies and organizations looking to employ audiologists, speech pathologists and educators. Students may find it helpful to enroll themselves with the Placement Cell.
Student feedback with reference to the courses, faculty and facilities is obtained annually. As confidentiality is ensured the feedback is unbiased and this enables actions for improvement.
