Background of Nurturing Future Leadership Program

As India assumes an increasingly prominent role in the world, there is an urgent need to inculcate leadership development in higher educational institutions (HEI) both among students and faculty. Leadership development for faculty members will not only help prepare some of them for educational leadership roles, but also be of intrinsic benefit even to those faculty uninterested in assuming leadership roles, by helping them excel in their own research and teaching pursuits, and in enabling them to inculcate leadership skills amongst their students, bringing tangible and wide-ranging benefits to the nation.

This need for trained and experienced institutional leaders is also outlined in the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which inter-alia stipulates that:-
  1. Faculty excellence will be incentivised by way of appropriate rewards, promotions, recognition and movement into institutional leadership
  2. Presence of outstanding and enthusiastic institutional leaders that cultivate excellence and innovation is the need of the hour
  3. Excellent faculty will be identified early and trained through ladder of leadership positions.
  4. Outstanding leaders will be identified and developed early, working their way through a ladder of leadership positions

The programme is envisioned to make “Everyone a Leader” to be able to create an empowered workforce with an open and participative culture.
