I always experienced a yearning to acknowledge my responsibilities and reciprocate by contributing to the growth and development of our society. Years ago when I visited my son's school, I perceived that the best way to advance society is by fostering education and it was at that moment that the dream and vision of JIS Group Educational Initiatives was conceived.
"Vision looks inward and becomes duty. Vision looks outward and becomes aspiration. Vision looks upward and becomes faith. Now, when this vision of duty, aspiration and faith has become a reality, it is a proud moment for me and my team to see thousands of students pursuing higher education in JIS Group of Colleges and equipping themselves to become industry ready professionals for successful careers. In this process the Group intends to unite all dimensions of Education from Undergraduate to Post Graduate Programmes in Engineering and Technology, Computer Applications, Dental Science,Pharmacy, Hospitality, diverse streams of Management and so on under the same umbrella in order to comprehensively and collectively optimize the reach of Educational Initiatives in every strata and corner of society towards a better future.
Our educational Initiatives believes that creating an academic foundation for social, cultural, scientific, economic and technological development in our Nation can mature into Global Interface by giving way to education exchange in the International territory as well. Therefore, our focus is to achieve unparalleled excellence that will bring development to our society and mankind by optimizing their potential, thereby establishing the observation of the renowned Journalist Sydney J. Harris on the role the purpose of education which is to "turn mirrors into windows.
It is a matter of both privilege and pride to address you as Director of this institute. We have achieved several milestones between 2016 - the year I took over as the head of the institution and now. The biggest and most significant being JISCE was declared as the first ever institution in India that disrupted higher education patterns in this country through unleashing flipped learning in its undergraduate programmes. This was endorsed by MHRD, AICTE, The World Bank Group, UNESCO, Microsoft, MEF University and MAKA University of Technology.
In the today's age of Coronavirus, our Team JISCE was already up and running past three years to meet the challenges and opportunities of Industry 4.0. We were future ready to pass the concept of Anytime, Anywhere learning to our beloved students right at their doorsteps.
In a diverse country like India, where the academic domain is largely traditional and full of too many players of different sizes and shapes belonging to variety of schools of thoughts and silos, Team JISCE distinctly and proudly stands out as the national Gamechanger by maiden unleashing of digital learning three years ago in this country.
Last year in April, in association with our brand co-conveners MHRD, AICTE, NPIU, The World Bank Group, UNESCO, Microsoft, MAKA University of Technology, we organized International Conference on Digital Pedagogies that received tremendous response and raised nationwide curiosity. The outcome was simply unbelievable! At the concluding session, MHRD announced funding of 100 select institutions for digital Inrastructure.
This time around we did announce the sequel to our last year's conference in April but had to postpone due to the worldwide outbreak. As it is, there is a silver lining around the black clouds! We have been extended invitation to organize it later in the year by two Thai Universities - the Chulalongkorn and AIT, when they invited me early this year to give presentations on our digital strides.
