Vibrant and active alumni network needed not only in urban institutions but also in villages
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emphasised the need to harness the strength and talent of alumni of any college or school.
Speaking at the radio show Mann Ki Baat on November 29, Modi also urged everyone to strengthen their connections with the institutions where they studied and asked the institutions to involve the strength of their alumni in innovation and development and continuously better opportunities for the current students.
The Prime Minister said a strong vibrant and active alumni network is needed not only in urban schools, colleges and universities but also in schools of villages.
Speaking about the positive contribution that alumni can make for the betterment of educational institutions, Modi said, “IITians have gifted their institutes a conference centre, management centre, incubation centre and many other facilities.”
He appreciated the initiative taken by the alumni of IIT Delhi to create an endowment fund, calling it a great idea.
“Nothing is big or small when it comes to returning something. Many alumni students help their institutes in technology upgrade and construction of buildings or initiating an award or scholarship,” Modi said. “Such initiatives play a vital role in the development of any educational institute.”
