IIT-Delhi Changed Its Stand

The Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi has opened its doors wider: all students wanting to take up the week-long self-enrichment programme can do so now. It was earlier meant only for Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe candidates.

IIT-Delhi Changed Its Stand

TOI had reported about the course in its Thursday 30th June's edition. But various experts were anguished that the IIT-Delhi was running the programme only for SC/ST students and termed the grooming course as smacking of apartheid and causing segregation on campus. Reacting promptly, the tech school changed its stand; it will now allow all students to take the course.
The co-ed programme, which will run from July 10 to July 17, is made up of modules on communication, personality development and theater for communication (more like public speaking).

(All) JEE selected students who are planning to join IIT-Delhi are encouraged to register for the special Self-Enrichment Programme starting July 9. The programme is open for limited registration for up to 200 students and preference will be given to SC/ST and other students from economically weaker background, read a fresh note put out by IIT-Delhi on Thursday 30th June.

The residential programme is conducted by the Center for Research and Education for Social Transformation, Kerala (CREST). It will enable students to improve communication skills, better time management and public expression as well as build self-confidence, says the note put up by the institute.
