New Delhi, February 26, 2020 — The Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, today launched the ‘Higher Education Leadership Development Programme for Administrator.’ It is a joint initiative of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the British Council under the auspices of the UK India Education and Research Initiative. Mr. Amit Khare, Secretary, MHRD; Prof. D.P. Singh, Chairman, UGC; Ms. Barbara Wickham OBE, Director, British Council India, and other officials from the Ministry of Human Resource Development, University Grants Commission and the British Council were present during the launch of the program.

HRD Minister Pokhriyal said that this is a unique program that will address the critical aspect of enhancing leadership capacity in the mid and senior level functionaries of Indian Universities. He said that the program would be a step towards institutional development in line with our Governments’ commitment to improving the quality of education imparted in our Universities. He added that the program would lead to developing a more global outlook and promote learning for inclusive and internationally connected higher education systems. The Minister also said that the program would serve as a stimulant for the functionaries to improve their performance and capabilities, which consequently shall enhance the institutional profile and reputation of Universities in India.

• The main objective of the program is to train the senior and middle-level academic administrators to enable them to bring about systemic changes with renewed approaches, capacity, tools, and skills in Universities in India. The “Higher Education Leadership Development Programme for Administrators” would ensure effectiveness on the part of the administrative functionaries of the Universities.

• The program includes two workshops conducted by UK trainers, which will train about 300 academic administrators in the level of Registrar and Joint/Deputy/Assistant Registrar to enable them to bring about professional transformation in the higher education institutions. Further, to make the program sustainable, 30 potential future leadership development program trainers from among the 300 participants will be chosen and will be given additional training to train others.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) will conduct this program in collaboration with ‘Advance HE’ as the training partner with globally recognized institutional expertise and leadership excellence from the UK, which is being enabled by the British Council in India.
