VARANASI : The National Education Policy-2020 focuses on overall growth of students besides their academic and educational progress. The policy proposes that the physical, psychological, and emotional well-being of students should be ensured with making available support centers and career counselors for all students. In the backdrop of the ideas suggested by NEP 2020, the University Grants Commission has issued “Guidelines for Promotion of Physical Fitness, Sports, Students’ Health, Welfare, Psychological and Emotional Well Being at Higher Educational Institutions”. In the light of the UGC guidelines, Banaras Hindu University has set up a panel to deliberate on engaging students in various facets of the varsity. The panel chaired by the Dean of Students will study the best practices on student engagement available in other educational institutions of repute and identify opportunities and activities in which students may be effectively and proactively engaged. This exercise would aim to improve the ecosystem of the University, both with respect to curricular and co-curricular activities. The panel will recommend possible ways to help students adapt to the ethos of the University and identify ways and means to implement reform measures for deviant students. It will suggest any other relevant aspects that will improve the quality of student life in the University. The committee has also been mandated with reviewing the report on “Mechanism for the Reformation of Errant Students”. The members of the panel include the Controller of Examinations, Prof. S. Shrikrishna, Dept. of Biochemistry, Prof. Ankur Singh, Dy. Medical Superintendent, Sir Sunderlal Hospital, Dr. Rajneesh K Singh, Member, Legal Cell, Dr. Vaishali Raghuvanshi, Mahila Mahavidyalaya, and Dr. Trayambak Tiwari, Dept. of Psychology. Sh. Sayantan Sanyal (Cdr. Retd.), Advisor (Students Affairs) is the member secretary of the committee. Official notification attached.
