It was emphasised that these aspects are immensely crucial for the growth of the institution and if we do not implement these policies it will be extremely difficult to maintain the standard of higher education.

She added it was emphasised that the multidimensional educational institutions will not only be beneficial for the students to learn under the same roof but will also play an important role in making them financially self-reliant.

Dr Dhingra also shared that emphasis was also laid on adopting academic bank of credit by the colleges, so that students can develop their personality by studying different subjects according to their interest and convenience.

Professor Sudhanshu Bhushan, programme director, NIEPA, presided over the workshop and professor Neeru Snehi played the role of programme coordinator of the workshop. Professor S. Sonavane, Director, Department of Education and Extension, Savitribai Phule University, honored Dr Dhingra with a certificate of participation.
