It was a moment of pride, elation and contentment when the winners of the annual fest “Indradhanush 2019”, of the prestigious Renaissance University walked away with trophies and certificates and happiness worth millions on their faces.
Renaissance University which was formed by bringing together and integrating ten well known Schools namely School of Management, School of Commerce, School of Law, School of Science, School of Journalism, School of Fashion, School of Arts, School of Social Science, School of Agriculture & School of Library Science, today stays synonymous to the word right education with direction.
Renaissance University has a deep philosophy behind it, a legacy to share; where they changed many things. They brought Renaissance to Education and marched strongly for 14 years, to be at this point, where there is no need to define, the way they worked. “Our Way”, was their pedagogy. Credulously it is believed to be dealing with students, but there was a difference. Conducting lectures and seminars, it was not just about completing a syllabus but making the students realise their ethical responsibilities is an integral part as these students form the society and the future of our country. Examinations are conducted but the criteria to judge the student’s potential too is unique.
Renaissance University believes in practical knowledge too and hence it is imperative for students to be participating in various activities. The concept is of mentoring, rather than teaching and with the kind of response received and the turnaround in students’ mind-set, this pedagogy has been of a lot of help. This has also earned faith of the parents, affection and interests of the students. The student community that was prepared in this course of action finally won the faith of the world, employers and the society as a whole. Till date numerous writers, scientists, managers and yes above all, Renaissance produced Humans have been introduced to the society.
For the brand it has been a practice to invite learned individuals from different walks of life in the University for Guests Lectures/interactive sessions and impart numerous valuable knowledge and insights pertaining to the interests of the students. Mr. Harish Bijoor – CEO & Brand Expert at Harish Bijoor Consultants Inc.; Mr. Devdutt Pattanaik – Mythologist, writer, columnist & illustrator; Mr. Sandeep Singh – ex-captain of the Indian national hockey team; Mr. Alyque Padamsee – Indian theatre personality & Ad film maker; Mr. Anand Kumar – Founder, Super 30; Mr. Narendra Sen – Founder & Managing Director, RackBank Data Centers; Mr. Pankaj Advani – English billiards and former snooker player; Mr. Ankit Fadia – Indian author, speaker, television host, and self-proclaimed “ethical hacker” of computer systems; Ms. Evelin Linder – Co-founder, World Dignity University Initiative; are a few to names to have interacted with students.
