College faculty and students need ongoing opportunities for personal and professional development in an era of rapid and continuous change. In this context, collaboration is a powerful vehicle to promote faculty learning and professional development of students. This can help to maintain a dynamic institutional climate that sustains good faculty and ultimately promotes a healthy learning environment for students. Collaboration also requires individuals and institutions to step out of the comfort zones where they usually operate quite autonomously. To achieve the benefits that collaboration promises, ANDC has learnt to work productively in tandem with others. Collaborations between ANDC, industry and start-ups have also been initiated to give impetus to young students in skill development and preparing for future. The college has also been granted several MoUs to promote OER (Open Education Resources) among learners-educators via training workshops, base camps, and facilitating awareness programs throughout India.
