UGC Notifies Colleges and Universities on Mandatory Student Induction Programme

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has  recently notified the colleges and institutions about the mandatory student induction programme (SIP) that helps new students learn about the institution’s policies, practices, culture, and values before regular classes begin.

The SIP includes face-to-face interactions, virtual material, and field visits. It can also help students form mentor groups.

The Student Induction Programme engages with the new students as soon as they come into the institution, before regular classes start. At the start of the induction, the incumbents learn about the institutional policies, processes, practices, culture and values, and their mentor groups are formed.

The Commission has asked the universities to upload photographs or videos of the induction programme on the UGC's University Activity Monitoring Portal.

“One of the mandates set by the University Grants Commission to achieve Quality in Higher Education is the Student Induction Programme. UGC has notified "Deeksharambh"- A guide to Student Induction Programme with the aim of making the transition from Secondary to College/University effortless.

As the academic session is likely to commence soon, you are requested to kindly take appropriate initiatives to organise Student Induction Programmes for newly admitted students in your university and upload an Action Plan/Photographs/Videos of the Induction Programme actually conducted on UGC's University Activity Monitoring Portal (UAMP) You are also requested to provide necessary instructions in this regard to the Colleges/Institutions affiliated to your University,” states Prof Manish Ratnakar Joshi in a letter addressed to vice chancellor of all universities.
