Criterion 7 - Curricular Aspects

Key Indicator - 7.2 Best Practices


Describe two best practices successfully implemented by the Institution as per NAAC format provided in the Manual

  • MLRIT focuses on the development of a student’s physical, cognitive, social, and psychological capabilities and promotes critical and innovative thinking within an academic setting. As a result, the college is committed to supporting holistic learning. The phrase "holistic education" refers to the development of students' multi-faceted abilities with the goal of assisting them in dealing with life's necessities and constraints while also providing them with possibilities based on their skills and interests. Since gaining autonomy, the institution has made it a point to change its curriculum every year to allow for academic flexibility. This allows students to receive exposure to a variety of academic and non- academic disciplines of study.

    In today's world, holistic education is critical to the improvement of educational institutions. According to the new education policy, all higher educational institutions must embrace holistic education. As a result, there has been a general trend toward moving away from traditional techniques and toward more holistic approaches to education. Since its inception, MLRIT has emphasized the relevance of holistic education practices. Hailing from an athletic background, the Chairman of the institution Mr. Marri Laxman Reddy believes that maintaining a balance between an active physical life and academics is the key to a healthy outlook on life. This has had a significant impact on the institution's educational philosophy.

    Physical- MLRIT owns a vast ground spanning an area of 20 acres along with a fully equipped indoor stadium and gymnasium within the campus. The college conducts multiple sports events in collaboration with many prestigious sports associations on an annual basis. It motivates the students to participate in the activities conducted within and outside the institution by enabling them to balance their academic life alongside these events. The institution also provides various scholarships and recognitions specific to sports activities.
    Cognitive Abilities- Creativity is the art of getting things done through the synergy of abilities that one possesses. The institution has different clubs like (SCOPE and EWB) that support students and encourage them to generate and develop ideas in a logical and creative manner. They promote critical thinking and problem solving before the execution of the ideas.

    Emotional Abilities
    The institution ensures the active participation of the student community in clubs and events conducted within and outside the campus. Clubs such as CAME help students foster qualities of teamwork. The events of the club require them to interact with one another and work in congruence with other members of the club for setting up a successful event. This improves their communication and interpersonal skills. It also helps them get a better understanding of how they have to self-regulate their emotions while working with other individuals.

    'MLRIT'-Social Connect

    From the time of its inception, MLRIT has remained well connected with societal-centric activities and focuses on education along with societal responsibility that enriches the skills of its student fraternity and enables them to get a better understanding of real-world problems. The institutional values of altruism, service, and community orientation are the key determinants of this commitment. There has always been some form of exchange of knowledge, resources, and services between the HEIs and the proximate communities. Community service and association with local communities are key to the development of a value-based future generation. It is not a new arena and the prominence of community and societal connections with the higher educational institutions elevates students into better citizens of the society. However, the organized process of such exchange, called 'community engagement,' has increased in importance.

    The term ‘community’ is not new. This term was popularized when many companies come forward and started rendering their services to their local communities under the title of ‘corporate social responsibility’. Starting from the Management to students, every individual at MLRIT is an active participant of activities of various respects that involve development of the local community. MLRIT started its journey towards the transformation of society with the best practice namely “Nenu-Naa Samajam”. Under this, MLRIT tries to involve all its stakeholders such as the Management, Teachers, and Students in organizing most of the activities for the development of the community and societal wellbeing.

    1. To instill a sense of responsibility among students towards the community
    2. To facilitate better living circumstances for the people residing in the nearby residential area.
    3. To understand the psychology of the aged and help them lessen their pain and emotional stress.
    4. To facilitate a better lifestyle for the surrounding community by providing medical and other wellness facilities

    MLRIT has many proactive bodies like NSS and other clubs with the participation of both students and faculty alike. The students are grouped and trained to take initiative and develop ideas to raise funds and solve specific problems of the communities nearby, like basic needs, medical needs, and emotional needs.
    With support of our Chairman and Secretary, MLRIT was able to adopt a village and provide services such as ensuring the availability of drinking water, proper drainage system, food, and shelter.

    1. The institute provides stitching machines to the widows of the community in order to empower them and support them in their independent lives.
    2. Oil extraction machines are provided to members of the community. The by-products are sold to faculty members and others members of the institution to generate income for the community.
    3. The college also set up Covid-19 vaccination centres for the benefit of the local community
    4. It regularly arranges free medical camps in the nearby villages and provides them with free medicines and medical kits for chronic diseases
    5. Blood donation camps are also set up within the campus premises and made available to the community when required.
