Faculty and students exchange programs will be encouraged. The role of Alumni will be explored for improving academics, fund generation and internationalization of their Alma matter. We believe that our youth has the requisite potential and our aim is to realize this potential by imparting meaningful education to have a happy and prosperous community.
