“One good teacher is worth a thousand priests”
STC cherishes values and the importance of teacher’s service in the field of higher education. The institution strongly believes that a band of good teachers with high sense of commitment and sincerity can usher in quality in education. Aiming at excellence in its academic yatra, the institution had aptly realized that the faculty are the sheet anchors who should be scholars of the highest order with knowledge, wisdom and compassion. Only the best teachers can produce the best students and shape them into excellent citizens of the nation. To attain this prime objective, a Centre for Faculty Development (CFD) has been established and under its auspicious Faculty Development Programmes are conducted at regular intervals. The prime objective of CFD is to transform the faculty into excellent teachers in terms of values, character, domain and general knowledge, research pursuits, social orientation and contribution to national development.
With this objective, CFD has chalked out a well designed composite FDPs in three segments; Common FDP (for 5 to 6 days), Third Saturday Workshops at Stream / Department level, Refresher Courses in November every year.

- Innovative teaching methodology,
