Outlining her priorities as the head of the institution, the Principal of Lady Shri Ram College, Suman Sharma, in a media interaction, said that her priority is to maintain quality and to start new practices in the college.
Describing her predecessor Meenakshi Gopinath, principal of the college for 26 years, as an 'Institution Builder' she said, it will be a challenge to stand up to her reputation as an administrator and academician.
She told that introducing new courses in skill development-such as communication and soft skills and to be more inclusive, the college may open its doors to college goers who aren't on its rolls for pursuing short term courses.
Also new courses in liberal arts and social sciences at the under graduate level might be offered by the college.
The college would like to offer short term courses to students from other colleges if they are approved by the staff council and governing body, also providing its excellent infrastructure to the students.
Seeking collaboration with the bodies like Indian Council of Historical Research and Indian Council of Social Science Research is another planning of the college.
Not giving her opinion on the choice based credit system she said that the college would abide with the decision of the academic council of Delhi University for implementing the government's directive to introduce the system.
Focusing on maintaining the excellence of the institution with traditions of inclusivity and equity she put an end to all speculations regarding granting autonomy to colleges like LSR, Shri Ram College of Commerce, St Stephen's and Hindu College that has been growing steadily.
