I take great pride in telling about my students who have made their names in the coveted positions
It's been more than four decades that I have been teaching students. It's a moment to cherish when you see your students groom from bud to a full-grown flower, spreading their fragrance in the society. During my teaching days, I had dreamt to build an institution, which has been fulfilled with the establishment of GIET University, Gunupur. My greatest satisfaction is that we are able to give campus placement to the maximum of our students uninterruptedly for the last two decades in spite of the rise and fall of the employment market.
Live and let live with Dignity, Integrity & Honour
Live and let live with dignity, integrity & honour. I am conscious that university should not run for short term benefits but should be distinguished in the crowd for its quality and philosophy, so that a strong foundation is laid for centuries to come.
Leadership is about taking responsibility, committing to it and leading from the front
I always lead from the front. I pass all the credits to my team, who work laboriously with great love and deep commitment. I take responsibility for failures as well. Leadership is not about a position or a title, it’s a huge responsibility, which I have accepted humbly from the beginning of my career. I show my commitment towards my work for which I have been loved by all my stakeholders from day one till today.
We worked hard and converted all the adversities into opportunities to be known as the modern Gurukul
Being situated in the tribal hinterland of India, we have been facing multiple challenges since inception. Since we worked very hard and converted all the adversities into opportunities, today GIET University is widely acclaimed as a citadel of education, and we are known as a modern Gurukul. Here, teachers are highly dedicated; students are into serious career-making being away from the hue and cry of the cities.
We motivate our team by following some golden principles. We have paid a good salary and allowances to our team uninterruptedly on the last day of the month for the past 23 years. We offer free family/bachelor accommodation, free transport, free homeopathic medicines, group insurance, medical, LTC, and one of the best leave plans of the nation. Promotions to all deserving members of staff are given and punishment after an inquiry to the wrongdoers has also acted as a deterrent motivation.
The syllabus is taught by hands-on practice according to the industry standards
Fifty percent of our Board of Studies members are from industry who tell us what the industry is looking for from our students. In order to meet the ever changing demands of the employment market, maximum of our syllabus is taught by hands-on practice, which gives our students a strong edge in the campus selection.
Best infrastructure, cultured campus, best academic practices results in a healthy campus
Best infrastructure, cultured & disciplined campus, tireless efforts for best academic practices, results and placements and of-late ‘Staying connected to the world through various technologies, seminars, symposium etc., is what we think makes an ideal environment. Yes, if it’s in the lap of nature, it’s like cherry on the top.
