It is our immense pleasure to invite you to the National Seminar on Higher Education in 2025: Growth, Challenges and Opportunities which is being held at The IIS University, Jaipur on 20-21 November, 2015.

Higher education in India is undergoing considerable change. With over 600 million people in India under 25 years of age, the system is under tremendous pressure to expand. Many trends are emerging in the key areas of higher education, research and innovation. The access of technology, social mobility of community, patterns of funding for the organizations in this sector, increasing significance of research and diversification of the education system have acted as accelerators of transformation. Educational institutions and universities should respond to this paradigm shift and adapt to the growing appetite of young India towards higher education. Across the globe, the higher education sector is an important player in introducing innovative approaches along with sustaining the economic pressures of running a large institution controlled by external factors such as rankings, increasing competition for students and attracting intellectual faculty and confronting in-house pressures from the Boards. The seminar aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and faculty members to share proven and innovative ideas, experiences and perspectives about transformation in higher education.

The seminar looks forward to explore Trends, Research and Innovation in Higher Education with a focus on several interrelated questions:

1.         To promote effective instructional practices aimed at improving the quality of higher    education

            2.         To device and develop strategies to retain high quality faculty

3.         To bring renewed awareness of the various aspects of governance and reforms in leadership structure

            4.         To aim at the sustainability of corporate-academia partnerships in higher education
