The changing socio-economic forces and the advancement in technology taking place in our society in recent years are giving rise to new trends in the family structure, role of men and women, value priorities, living styles and work patterns. The scientific aspects of effective resource management have added significance on account of the increasing value of time, limitation of resources and increasing number of responsibilities that have to be shouldered by women as homemakers and wage earners.
The departmental resources like well equipped labs, departmental library, computer, epidiascope, slide and over head projectors facilitate effective teaching, learning and research experience. A fully furnished Home Management Residence offers exposure to the students on applied home making. Beyond chalk and talk, the newer teaching technologies incorporate brain storming, brain tweezing, team teaching, micro teaching, think - tanks, demonstration, displays, use of CD and field trips and model preparation. Individual assignments, seminars and projects form integral part of assessment.
Extension activities are undertaken both in rural and urban areas under National Service Scheme (UG level) and Community and Social Services (PG students).
The department actively participates in out- reach programmes in conducting campaigns for Antiplastic, Anti-tobacco/alcohol, Anti-dowry, Safe environmental practices, AIDS awareness, Small savings drive and Voters' awareness. The observance of all national days, conduct of medical camps and tree planting drive are worth mentioning. Creating awareness on solar cooking is another important work undertaken by the department.
