Vidya has a large number of well placed alumni who have distinguished themselves in their careers by noteworthy contributions. Many of them continue to have strong bond to their alma mater and have expressed their readiness to contribute to the growth of Vidya. As a first step in this direction, it has been decided to harness their expertise in helping Vidya’s students in doing innovative academic projects. This initiative has been tentatively named “Alumni Project Support”. A core group of faculty members has been formed to coordinate these activities and a small group of alumni has been identified as the potential immediate participants of the project. This new initiative would help Vidya students get more exposure to the real world outside and also would help strengthen the alumni bond to the institution.
