Grievance Redressal Mechanism:


Students, parents, teaching and non-teaching staff, and other stakeholders have direct access to the Principal to get their grievances addressed.  In addition, the College has two committees specially formed to address grievances. While one committee is mandated to mitigate examination related grievances (as per guidelines of Goa University), the other looks after non-examination related grievances of students. Additionally, the students also have the option of dropping their grievances (in written/printed form) in a sealed ‘Box’ kept in a central location, which then periodically is opened, with the concerns then addressed by the Principal.

 

History:

Fr. Agnel College of Arts & Commerce, Pilar- Goa, was established in June 1991 by the Xaverian Educational Society, Pilar, which belongs to the Society of the Missionaries of St. Francis Xavier, commonly known as the Society of Pilar. The College is a minority institution founded under the provision of Article 30 of the Indian Constitution, and is affiliated to Goa University. Notwithstanding its vision of providing quality higher education to all, especially the marginalized, the institution has marched ahead attaining an ‘A’ Grade by NAAC in the second cycle of re-accreditation and is endeavouring to climb the ladder to higher excellence through continuous and sustained quality enhancement.

Fr. Agnel College has to its credit many achievements not only in academics but also in sports, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, having topped in a number of inter-collegiate events at the State and National level. The homely atmosphere and value based education with its core values of faith in God and pursuit of excellence through honest toil has meant that the number of students in the College has continually shown an upward trend.  It is worth mentioning that we have students from other States and Countries as well that seek admission in the College. Through holistic education coupled with sound mentoring, the students are guided to take informed decisions, discern right from wrong, and above all, contribute to building a just society and to nation building.

Programmes:

The College offers three under-graduate degree programmes (two aided: Commerce and Arts; one self-financed: Computer Applications) and one Research Centre (PhD degree) in Commerce. The College also has a Study Centre of IGNOU through which it offers degree programmes, Diplomas and Certificate Courses, including M.Com, B.A, B.Com and B.P.P.
