The Department organizes various international and national level workshops, seminars, conferences and other programmes. Every year we organize unique programmes like ‘Talent Scan’-(Quiz competition for Higher Secondary Students), Newman Youth Excellence Award and Newman Youth Icon Award. All the curricular and co-curricular activities of the Department is organised and conducted under the banner of Newman Economic Forum (NEF).
The alumni association of the Department is one of the strongest alumni associations in the college. The first Sunday of every December is observed as the alumni day of the Department. There are a number of endowments constituted by the alumni association for the students in line with their academic performance and economic background.
The Department always strives hard to achieve the lofty ideals envisioned by the founding fathers of the college and beloved former faculty members of the Department. Currently, Dr. Jenni K Alex is serving his Alma Mater as the Head of the Department..
