At the 2019 Championship Conference held at Aamby Valley City, VC Jamshed Bharucha addressed the students on issues in higher education.
Commenting at the state of Higher Education in India, Dr. Jamshed Bharucha, Vice Chancellor, SRM University AP-Amaravati, said, “Indian Higher Education is in need of radical reform. India has tremendous talent in its youth, but most are not being well served by colleges and universities. At the undergraduate level, we must change what we teach and how we teach. We are also woefully under-invested in research: 0.7% of GDP compared to China’s 2%.”
Initiatives of IIMUN include Leadership School, Experiential Learning and Social Impact.
