UGC Frames Guidelines For Transforming HEIs Into Multidisciplinary Institutions

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has come up with draft guidelines to enable transformation of higher education institutions (HEIs) into multidisciplinary institutions.

The UGC has asked colleges and university to take necessary initiatives in this regard.

As per the UGC, multidisciplinary education fosters lively communities of peers and academics that help students develop into well-rounded persons.

The higher education regulator said the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 lays strong emphasis on the transformation of Higher Education Institutions into large multidisciplinary universities, colleges, and HEI clusters.

“Considering the rigidity of disciplinary boundaries in Higher Education Institutions, the UGC has developed “Guidelines for Transforming Higher Education Institutions into Multidisciplinary Institutions. All universities and colleges are advised to take necessary initiatives as per the guidelines to evolve into multidisciplinary institutions,” the UGC said.

In order to facilitate the transformation of HEIs into interdisciplinary institutions, the UGC, according to reports, has established a Committee under the leadership of Prof. RP Tiwari. The Committee has suggested multiple ways such as collaboration, merging, and clustering between institutions to achieve the characteristics of a multidisciplinary institution.

“I am happy to present the “Guidelines for Transforming Higher Educational Institutions into Multidisciplinary Institutions” to the HEIs for consideration. Hope these guidelines help state Governments and Universities to frame appropriate rules/ policies to transform HEIs into multidisciplinary institutions,” UGC Chairman Prof. M. Jagadesh Kumar said.

Objectives:

Transform single-stream institutions into large multidisciplinary universities and autonomous degree-awarding HEIs. Strengthen institutional infrastructure necessary for multidisciplinary education and research. To build vibrant communities of scholars, and peers and enable students to become well-rounded individuals.
