Purpose and the Rationale for the Workshop is given below:

An efficient and effective leader in Higher Education ministry today requires competencies and strategies beyond the traditional skill set. Most of our institutions of Higher learning face challenges from the stakeholders, neighbourhood and government agencies. Expansion, excellence and equity with quality systems require a unique blend of aptitude, competencies and skills.

Every top-level  leader in a Higher Education institution must be a: ● Strategist ● Educator  ● Fundraiser ● Process Protagonist ● Academic Leader ● Collaborator

Strategic planning and execution, fundraising, alumni engagement and donor management rank the most important responsibilities in the daily tasks of a Secretary/Principal. Collaborating and building relationships with stakeholders in and off-campus is a must.  

Board of Management should set definite long-range goals for top leaders and evaluate their performance and progress towards the achievement of the vision and mission of the institute.  

Every thriving business today relies on digital technologies as a backbone for growth. Leaders must be tech savvy and data-driven to succeed. Education Leaders need to get ahead in our fast-paced, innovation-driven business landscape. 

Pedagogy needs a revamp too with digital intrusions and disruptions among the students. Student-centric learning methods integrated with ICT have to be prudently introduced in our education institutions.  Practical and result-oriented processes with proper monitoring are to be in place across the institution to ensure higher level of accreditation and ranking.

The various topics and the resource persons dealing them were as follows:

  1. Perspective/Strategic Planning by Rev. Dr Francis P. Xavier SJ  Rector & Vice President, Loyola Campus,  Chennai 
  2.  Resource Management- Finance & Human Resources  by Dr Henry Rosario M.S.W., Ph.D (Philippines) Director, Exodus Research & Development Pvt Ltd 
  •  Global Ranking and NIRF by  Dr Karthick Sridhar Vice Chairman, Indian Centre for Academic Rankings & Excellence Pvt Ltd (ICARE) 
  •  Practical Directives to Augment NAAC Grading  by  Mr Syed Mujahid Higher Education Advisor, Serial Networker, Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker 
  •  Digital Technologies & Pedagogy by Mr Sadiq Sait  Founder and CEO, uLektz.com 
  •  HEI Roadmap and NEP 2019  by  Dr N. Manoharan Pro Vice Chancellor, AMET University, Chennai  

The topics for the Workshop were apt and relevant and the resource persons expounding them were of high caliber, real experts in their field. It was a three days of learning and enlightenment. All the participants have truly grown in the profession of being a true teacher, leader, mentor to the youth of today, who come to our Colleges.
