Alumni Involvement in decision making is the way ahead

In February 2014, The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee addressed the Conference of Vice Chancellors of Central Universities (CUs) at Rashtrapati Bhavan. In this conference the president advised MHRD, UGC and the CUs to sit together and take action to improve the governance system and structures. He also requested them to engage their alumni in the governance of Universities. He further called upon the MHRD and CUs to prepare a data-base of alumni who can be involved in the governance of CUs. In September 2014, HRD Minister Smriti Irani‘s two-day meet with Vice-Chancellors of 39 central universities was focused on bringing greater professionalism in the management of these universities including outlining the role of alumni in their development and management. The HRD ministry felt the need to stress on a strong alumni network for central universities after observing their benefits in the IITs and IIMs. Therefore, the meet discussed ways to strengthen alumni networks, institutionalise a structure for it and create an exhaustive database of them. Since then every Conference of Vice Chancellors of Central Universities included Alumni Involvement as a part of the agenda. While some universities took steps to involve alumni in decision making, some are still finding ways… Read More »

Goodbyes are not forever!

Sasi Priya is an alumna of VNR VJIET and an awesome quizzer. She has been an Evangelist with us and is now off to pursue her Masters in Human Resource Management from TISS Mumbai. Here is what she has to say about her experience at Vaave. “My overall experience summed up in a single word is – fabulous. I had a great time working at Vaave. The job was challenging, my colleagues ever helpful and Vaave as a whole, a terrific place to explore myself as a person. The thing that makes Vaave a wonderful place to work at, is the commitment of the core team to the cause that is Alumni Networking and the way they have chosen to go about it. Their clarity of vision and the means to achieve the vision made it very easy for me to connect to Vaave. I believe my personal growth was linear before Vaave and it was exponential while in Vaave. My best learning from my mentor Yasaswy was understanding people’s needs accurately. Deciphering what a person wants was a difficult task for me earlier, but after working at Vaave and with my team, I am now able to read between the lines… Read More »

Vaave partners with GrabOn to offer exclusive deals to alumni

Business leaders, Educationists, Thought Leaders and Politicians alike have been advocating that collaboration is the new key to success. Our very own PM Modi is diligently following the collaboration mantra, paving way for strong international partnerships. Vaave and GrabOn believe that collaboration is a great way ahead too. We are all set to enter into a strategic partnership that will help both companies create enduring value and achieve common goals together. GrabOn is India’s largest couponing company owned and operated by Landmark IT Solutions, Hyderabad. “The idea is to provide exclusive deals to the alumni networks powered by Vaave. Alumni Benefits & Rewards is an established concept in the west. It is a way for institutions to show appreciation for their alumni and keep them engaged. However, this has not caught up yet in India. Our partnership with GrabOn is a first step towards driving this concept in India as a way to strengthen alumni relationships. The nitigrities of the partnership are being chalked out. As both Vaave and GrabOn are growing very fast in India and expanding globally, we see great potential in this partnership.”, says Sanjeev, CEO of Vaave. “Strategic growth is the way to go about for… Read More »
