Promoting Socially Conscious Intent to Develop Responsible Leadership

1. Context:

The future of the country is shaped in its classrooms. To echo this philosophy the institution makes conscious efforts to mould compassionate leaders. The idea of channelizing the energy of young minds towards betterment of society to achieve social development for sustainable future is implemented through various action plans.

2. Objectives:
  • To address issues of underprivileged stakeholders who lack opportunities
  • To provide an enabling environment to such students to develop themselves.
  • To inculcate empathy among students from a privileged background, thus promoting an inclusive mind-set.
  • To create responsible leaders for the future.
3. The Practice:

The institution believes in executing impact-based activities with tangible and intangible outcomes. HR College conducts a substantial number of activities where various student bodies were involved in organising programs, projects and initiatives in both rural and urban areas. These addressed issues related to health, environment, education and employment opportunities. The process involved discussion with people facing these issues, understanding their gravity and making plan of action to execute with the help of like-minded student volunteers and NGOs.

5. Problems encountered and resources required:

In rural areas a big constraint is the acceptance of new ideas. Student leaders are required to handle these situations judiciously. Other limitations include availability of financial resources and geographical reach. However, the desire to strive for the betterment of these people, voluntary contribution and corporate collaboration, outstrips such constraints. Another challenge is to entice privileged students to join such outreach programmes. This is sought to be overcome through consistent mentoring in classrooms by teachers who endeavour to develop a sense of social responsibility among students.
