Human Values


Self regulation is an important value to be imbibed in students without which one cannot accomplish any task successfully. Self-regulation is the ability to monitor and control one’s own behaviour, emotions, or thoughts, altering them in accordance with the demands of the situation. It includes the abilities to inhibit first responses, to resist interference from irrelevant stimulation, and to persist on relevant tasks even when we don’t enjoy them.


Inculcation of discipline in students includes moral values, positive attitude, respectfulness and obedience.


The duty of every individual should be considered as a service to society.


Basic traits of an individual includes acceptance, affection, care, compassion, consideration, dedication, devotion, empathy, forbearance, forgiveness, generosity, gentleness, humanness, interdependence, kindness, patience, patriotism, reverence, sacrifice, selflessness, service, sharing, sympathy, thoughtfulness, tolerance and trust.


Values related to Truth are accuracy, curiosity, discernment, fairness, fearlessness, honesty, integrity (unity of thought, word, and deed), intuition, justice, optimism, purity, quest for knowledge, reason, self-analysis, sincerity, sprit of enquiry, synthesis, trust, truthfulness, and determination.


Friendliness among one another should be promoted for the well-being of the society. Friends are sociable, pleasant companions, who always know how to say things the right way, even when they are challenging others’ behaviour. They are the natural facilitators in groups, making the social round move more smoothly.


“Service to Humanity is Service to God”. Quality of “Serving the needy” builds the right human being.


Internal happiness should be implanted in students through meditation and Yoga to nurture the young minds with strong hope and determination.


To live peacefully, one should start to install peace within (self). Charity begins at home.

Then one can spread peace to family, organization where one works, and then to the world, including the environment.

Professional Ethics for Teaching Profession


A code of ethics for educationalists always deals with issues such as even-handedness and confidentiality. Teachers may not show bias against students for any reason, and they must not share information about the student with anyone other than college professionals who need the information to assist the student. Teachers are expected to mentor the students properly to face any eventualities.


Parent teachers’ relationship should be sorted out in a cordial as well as professional manner. The teachers are responsible to team up with parents and build an environment of trust. Teachers should never discriminate students based on caste, creed or religion or their economic status in the society. It is generally considered disreputable for teachers to accept gifts from parents.


A teacher’s relationship with her colleagues is expected to be fair-minded, convivial and to cheer one another to hold on to high professional standards.


High standard of professionalism should be reflected in every act of a teacher. They should practice intellectual honesty. Teachers should be conscious of their responsibilities to their subject, to their students, to their profession, and to their institution.
