Programme – “Deeksharambh” in New Delhi.

To promote Deeksharambh – Student Induction Programme (SIP) in Higher
Education Institutions and its stakeholders, UGC will shortly conduct
awareness and training programmes for teachers in different regions in
the country.
“ Deeksharambh , a guide to Student Induction
Programme is to help new students adjust and feel comfortable in the new
environment, inculcate in them the ethos and culture of the
institution, help them build bonds with other students and faculty
members, and expose them to a sense of larger purpose and
self-exploration,” the minister said.
As per official sources, the
programme aims at engaging new students as soon as they take admissions
in an institution. During the induction programme, the incumbents will
be taught and made aware about the institutional policies, processes,
practices, culture and values, and their mentor groups formed.
