The motto of NGI is Molding True Citizens.. Our college has always followed a principle, not producing mere Certified Techies/Scientists/Managers; but of creating Complete Citizens., who would pragmatically excel in all strata of Professional, Personal and Social life. We accomplish a Holistic approach for Student Development.
Academic excellence alone cannot assure success and happiness in life or career. Holistic development refers to the overall development of Cognitive, Creative, Physical, Emotional and Social abilities in a student so that he/she is capable of facing the demands and challenges of everyday life.
We envision an education system that would help our students to learn academics, to know oneself, to build healthy relationships, to develop resilience and to work in a team.
Equally important is to experience transcendence and be existent to the activities in the society and its culture. Nehru Group visualizes, Holistic Education system would boost the morale of a student to achieve greater heights in their careers, lead a quality life and grow up to be good citizens of the society.
NCERC approach for Holistic Education system has FIVE core pillars. And we design a set of Activities/Projects/Events to be included in each of these pillars. Through participation of these programs, our student community would automatically involve into the Holistic tracks, and mold themself into True Citizens. The following table provides an Activity Matrix view, for the summary of its key undertakings.
