Another very unique feature of RGI is the mentor system which was introduced more than a decade ago. In this system each teacher is assigned a small group of student wards. The interactions between them help the mentors to have a comprehensive record of their activities, academic co-curricular achievements and problems. It also help the mentors to give a descriptive certificate at the end of the course.
The practice of the mentor system was started, recognizing the need for the present day college students to have a friend, counsellor and confidante on the campus. The practice is aimed at fostering a better rapport between the students and the teachers at a personal level.
The teacher collects personal information from her ward. The teacher takes care not to touch sensitive issues and does not force any information out of her wards. The teacher meets her wards informally outside class hours. Students are guided regarding their career options.
