Manav Rachna University organized Holistic Campus Transformation Program under Advait Life-Education Foundation recently. Advait is a unique organization working towards promoting innocence and an intelligent way of living amongst the youth of the world through rigorous Life-Education, an altogether different dimension of Education.
Advait’s HCTP has various modules dealing with professional development, awareness and opinion building, communication and self-exploration etc. The resource persons of the HCTP Program were: Ms. Neha Rajput, Mr. Rajiv Goel and Mr. Udit Gupta.
The first day of the program started with the explanation of the benefits of the program, which helped students to develop the power of critical thinking and self-exploration, and get more acquainted with the facts of their daily living. Students were involved in a fun activity- ‘Beyond the Gloss- My Ideal Self’. This session served as a mirror to acknowledge their true self.
The second session was titled as ‘The Fresh Blades of Spring’. It was a debate-based activity and a thought provoking exercise for the students, which not only made them think about themselves but also about the world around. This activity helped students to find their own voice and opinion amidst all the influences with which they are constantly surrounded.
The third session of the program was based on Group Discussions which helped the students understand the importance of collaborations, team-work and active listening in their day-to-day lives and how coming to concrete decisions based on the best possible inputs is not only the backbone of a successful business venture, but also the trademark of a real leader.
The last day of holistic development session was based on ‘Nurturing and Celebrating the Me in Us’. The session began with a brief introduction to different domains of professional lives. Valued professional virtues like Leadership, Professionalism, Success, Competition, Decision-making, Career, and Excellence were woven in the form of small role-plays. This role-play based activity gave participants a chance to laugh a bit on their perceived weaknesses and then, at the same time filled them with a new energy and zeal to meet the life afresh.
All the students and faculty thoroughly enjoyed the session as it helped them in self-exploration and understanding oneself. The HCTP was a great success in which a total of 180 students from different departments participated with full enthusiasm.
