  • Strategic Plan

DIT University, established in 2013, has developed into a multi-disciplinary university of repute through a well planned strategy and growth. While the universities growth plans were initially through the statutory bodies, the university constituted an Apex council in the year 2018 to ‘look into the regular Academic excellence, review and development of the university’. Through its regular meetings, the apex council deliberates on the overall progress of the university towards its goals as envisaged in its vision, and also discusses the strategic approaches to be taken for the growth. The Apex council is headed by the Chancellor as Chairman and Vice chancellor and other senior leadership as members. During the last 4 years, the apex council has deliberated on the following points and has given broad guidelines for the leadership to work on:

  1. Prepare a SWOT analysis for DITU

  2. Create a ‘Vision for the future’, for each School

  3. Identify areas for Centers of Excellence

  4. Identify alternate sources of revenue

  5. Faculty empowerment, Recruitment and Retention of quality faculty

  6. Expansion – New colleges of Nursing, Education and Health professions, School of Biological Sciences, Starting of Medical College

  7. Accreditations and Ranking

The apex council is tasked with the planning and developing the strategic plan for the university. The apex council discussed the need to develop a formal strategic plan for the university, with short term and long term action plans. The following six (6) thrust areas were identified and the plan for each of the areas is to be developed in a bottom up approach, with participation from all stake holders.

  1. Curriculum, Teaching & Learning

  2. Research and Innovation

  3. Human Resource

  4. Industry and Academic Partnerships

  5. Infrastructure, Technology & Financial Resources

  6. Outreach & Extensions

The New Education Policy (NEP-2020) has recommended transformational changes in the way Higher Education Institutions function and structure their academic programmes. Some salient points of NEP have direct impact on the future plans of the university. The new strategic plan will also incorporate the following points as enunciated in the NEP document.

  1. Multidisciplinary approach to prepare students for the job markets of the future.

  2. Opportunity to offer online programmes and courses

  3. Academic Flexibility

    1. UG education of 3 or 4 years
    2. Multiple Entry / Exit with appropriate certification
    3. Different designs of Masters programmes
    4. Admission to PhD with eligibility of a Master’s degree or a 4-year Bachelor’s degree with Research.
    5. Options to students to choose combinations across streams, including professional and vocational options

A revised strategic plan in cooperating in all the above points is under preparation. This will be debated through extensive discussions among different stake holders and the final strategic plan is planned to be released during the Silver Jubilee year of DIT University, in 2023.
