A mandatory induction program for students was designed by Prof. Rajeev Sangal, former Director, IIT (BHU) and his team to be offered right at the commencement of the first year and classes will begin after this induction program (Now known as DEEKSHARAMBH). The same program has been adopted as Deeksharambh by UGC and AICTE. Deeksharambh -- a guide to Student Induction Programme was prepared to provide/enhance the mentoring capabilities of the faculty member of universities and institutions so that they are able to conduct Student Induction Program.
It has been observed that universities and other higher education institutions have started implementing the student induction program. They have done very good job in organizing various activities listed in the Student Induction Program. But, at the same time these universities and HEI's have failed to deliver the Universal Human Values component of the student induction program. The universal human value (UHV) is the core components of the student induction program and the objectives of the program cannot be achieved without the deliverance of UHV.
There is a need to conduct faculty trainings / development programs in order to provide/enhance the mentoring capabilities of the faculty members of all universities across the country in a phased manner.
