Prof. Bhushan Patwardhan, Viceā€Chairman, UGC, New Delhi was the chief guest at the inauguration of the programme at IIIT-H campus in Gachibowli.

University Grants Commission (UGC)'s Student Induction Programme is a well-planned event to educate new entrants about the environment in a particular institution, and connect them with the people in it. It has been designed to help new students adjust and feel comfortable in their new environment, inculcate the ethos and culture of their institution, help them build bonds with other students and faculty, and expose them to a sense of larger purpose and self-exploration.

Around 225 faculty and teachers from leading institutes across Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu attended the program that included workshops, interactive sessions, and talks by  Prof. Rajeev Sangal,  former director of IIIT-H and IIT-BHU and Prof. Ramancharla Pradeep Kumar, Registrar, IIIT-H. Some of the topics explored include the role of education in building integrity, understanding human aspirations and needs, dealing with peer pressure and understanding relationships.

This is the first in a series of ToT sessions which Prof. Ramancharla will be conducting in Bangalore and Pune later in the month. Speaking on the program, he said, "SIP will get students to reflect on their own goals and inculcate understanding and responsibility toward national and larger human goals."
