Institution Building in Higher Education
India has been the cradle of civilization and its early contributions to Science, Mathematics, Astronomy, Economics, Political Science and Governance have been legendary. There are some educational institutions which stand out as islands of excellence in an ocean of mediocrity. Even though there is no unanimity on the notion of excellence in higher education, the moot question is: why do some institutions succeed and sustain their excellence, while others rapidly approach institutional menopause and then enter a stage of decline and oblivion? The concept of institution building emerged historically in the 1950s and 1960s when the emphasis on international social development began to focus on technical assistance. SPM, PDPU will be welcoming home, Dr. Arabinda Tripathy, Founder Director (Institute of Petroleum Management now School of Petroleum Management) on the topic "Institution-Building in Higher Education".Read more
