Note: All our students securing 55 per cent marks are happily employed as Assistant/Associate Professors in colleges in Gujarat, Maharashtra, and other states of the country. Nearly 50 per cent of them had chosen to go in for the BEd programme after their MA and had found gainful employment in the school system. Some had chosen to go into other professions and services. We feel the need for a thorough revision of this list so that we can include those of us whose names have been left out because we do not know their whereabouts.
We have been trying hard to update our lists and are keen to hear from our other alumni. We appeal to them to get in touch with us and inform us of the places of their posting. We would like them to know that their Department cares for them; for each one of them once on its rolls; would love to hear from them, to interact with them, and be of whatever assistance we can to them. We would like them to participate in the seminars, workshops etc we organise year after year, and see for themselves what their good wishes have made it today.
Alumni are requested to send us their constructive feedback based on their assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the curricula on offer, the methodology of teaching and learning that was used, the evaluation mechanism etc during their time here, besides their assessment of the latest curricula put on this website, and on what they feel we need to do in the years to come. (Alumni Feedback Their input will help us work out strategies for remodelling ourselves so as to make them feel proud of their alma mater.
