Community College (Puducherry)

About

Pondicherry University Community College was established on 16th October 1995, the day  of  the Decennial  Celebration  of  Pondicherry University, formally  inaugurated   by Dr. (Ms.) A.S. Desai, the then Chairperson of the University Grants Commission. The Pondicherry University Community College is the first of its kind in the University system of higher education in India to cater to employment oriented education to the Community and is an experimental model of American and Canadian Community Colleges. The motto of Pondicherry University Community College is “Education for Employment through Skills Formation”. The educational activities are designed in line with the needs and demands of the local community. More specifically, the main objective of this College is “to offer job-oriented courses based on the perceived community demand for specific manpower”. In short, Community College is “for” the Community and “of” the Community.
The College performs four major functions namely, teaching, training, research and extension. It attempts to create a model of employment oriented education with adequate mutual collaboration and cooperation of members from various commercial, agricultural, government and academic institutions and organizations. 
The PUCC acts under the general, academic and administrative supervision of Pondicherry University. PUCC has been recognized by the UGC as a Constituent College of Pondicherry University.

Mission

To ensure “Capacity building” in the youth with special reference to the underprivileged sections of the community including women through a holistic educational model which fosters intellectual enlightenment, vocational and life skill development, social commitment, emotional balance and moral uprightness. Thus ensuring better quality of life through social transformation is our overall mission.

Vision

To reach out the unreached youth population and empower them with need oriented and value based education with a view to enable them to be partners in national development.

Attendance 
The courses taught in the Community College are of technical nature that require continuous learning and undivided attention on the subjects. The College believes that regular attendance in the class and constant interaction with faculty can widen the mental horizon and knowledge of students. Therefore, the College requires the students to attend all the theory and practical classes regularly. Wherever this is not possibleeach student should earn at least 75% of attendance in each of the papers individually, failing which he/she will not be permitted to appear for the end semester examinations. 17 Post Graduate, Diploma and Certificate programmes also follow the same norms. Further, the attendance earned by a student is taken into consideration for internal assessment (5 marks out of 25 marks in each paper). The above 5 marks are awarded as follows:
