Parent Interaction Committee

Convener

Prof. Beena Ballal (Electronics and Telecommunication)


Overview 

The genesis of the Parent Interaction Committee lies in the belief that parents play a pivotal role in the occupational aspirations of their children. It is imperative to assist them in understanding the influence they exercise on the career development of their wards to enable them to provide constructive and knowledgeable advice.


Goal

Counseling sessions with parents on positive parenting styles, support, guidance and responsiveness would hold the key to creating a stress-free academic life. The committee aims at providing a common forum for interaction of parents and teachers so as to exchange feedback and jointly motivate the student to put in his/her best efforts.
