-   Teaching Performance: Effectiveness of the instructor in transferring “knowledge and ability to do to students”.

-   Services: Services given to students by the Institute/School outside the classrooms.

At Our Core

  • Culture is a set of beliefs and practices, which animates, sustains, and binds a people, and shapes their common identity. The past is our bedrock on which is erected the edifice of the future of a nation.
  • The human mind is a conscious set of cognitive faculties that processes, reasons and perceives in a holistic framework. The integrative process of thinking, wanting and feeling leads to the creation of objects of beauty, which may or may not be of any formal use. This experiential awareness is the basis of all artistic creations.
  • Art reflects society as it exists as much as how it ought to exist. It provides a multiplicity of views that enhances reflection, communication, and visual literacy. This increased sense of empathy, in turn, develops a tolerance towards the 'other', the 'different, and the 'outsider'. This interaction of art with contemporary ideas leads to the creation of a compassionate view of life.
  • Culture impacts the individual and the decision-making processes in society. It has the potential to bridge our disparate worlds, connect and inspire communities, provide skills for development, and essentially, advocate change for the better..
  • In the realm of foreign affairs, the role of art and culture has increasingly been identified as being instrumental in extending sphere of a country’s soft power. Hence, all the more reason to teach and promote art and culture as a means of expanding the canvas of public diplomacy.
