Parvatibai Chowgule College of Arts and Science (an autonomous college) has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the “Mangrove Society of India” (MSI), to carry out research projects and community service.

Speaking after signing the MoU, principal of Chowgule college, Nandkumar Sawant, said: “We take pride in saying that we are the first and only autonomous college in the state of Goa, and therefore hold greater responsibility not only in bringing innovation in teaching-learning but also in making education more relevant through research, consultancy and extension works.”

The objective of the MoU with MSI is to organise joint activities in research, training, community outreach and extracurricular areas and enable students to carry out internships. The MoU will facilitate students of geography, botany, and zoology to carry out research projects with MSI as a component of their internships. The research projects will also help address the conservation needs of wetlands in Goa via public outreach programmes.
