EducationWorld Higher Education Grand Jury Awards 2019-20

EducationWorld July 2019 | Special Report

The inaugural EducationWorld Higher Education Grand Jury Awards have been introduced to acknowledge and recognise low-profile and newly established private higher education institutions (HEIs). Juries of knowledgeable educationists were specially constituted to recommend conferment of the EW Grand Jury Awards especially upon newly promoted or low-profile HEIs implementing best practices.

To select newly promoted progressive private higher education institutions across the country, we invited nominations from educationists, individuals and HEIs themselves supported by evidence of best practices in nine categories — extraordinary leadership, campus design excellence, quality of campus life, IT integration, student diversity, sports and co-curricular education, newly emergent, professional education, vocational and skills education.

Evidence-supported nominations were received from 520 private higher education institutions countrywide. To assess the evidence and rank nominated institutions in each category, this year’s Grand Jury comprising eminent educationists Dr. Ashok Misra, former director of IIT-Bombay, Dr. R. Natarajan, former chairman of AICTE and Anand Sudarshan, former CEO of Manipal Education and founder of Sylvant Advisors was constituted.
