  • Young EDGE Award to VIT Vice President Mr. Sekar Viswanathan

    Mr. Sekar Viswanathan, Vice President, VIT University was bestowed the Young EDGE Award on 13 March at the EDGE 2012 Forum held at New Delhi. The award was presented to Mr. Sekar in recognition of the innovations he has introduced in the field of education at VIT. Mr. Sekar received the award in the presence of Chancellor Dr. G.

Radhakrishnan Chair on Parliamentary Studies (Rajya Sabha) presented the award to Mr. Sekar Viswanathan.

    The Young EDGE Award is given to young academicians or academic administrators in recognition of their significant contributions to enhancing the quality of education and making a lasting impression in the field.

    In his acceptance speech, Mr. Sekar said that two of innovative initiatives at VIT - the FFCS (Fully Flexible Credit System) and STARS (Support the Advancement of Rural Students) - were very close to his heart. While the former breathed an air of freedom to the students in an otherwise rigid academic system, the latter provided opportunities to meritorious, needy students of each district of Tamil Nadu by way of providing tuition waiver and free food and accommodation to two toppers, a boy and a girl, in the HSC examination from rural government schools. Mr. Sekar recalled the hardships his father had faced as a student, walking ten kilometers a day to attend a school. In all humility, he said that he dedicated the award to his father and Chancellor of VIT who is his role model and to his wife Ms. Sandhya Pentareddy for her support and encouragement at all times. He also said that the award was the result of the hard work of the students and the relentless efforts of the faculty and staff of VIT and that he was receiving the award on their behalf.
