It is an honour and privilege to serve this glorious Institute as a Director. Since the formal announcement was made I have received hundreds of messages from various stakeholders and I thank each one of them for support and warm welcome.
It is with great enthusiasm that I embrace this position and thank the Trust and Governing Council members for the opportunity given to me.
The higher education sector is facing a lot of challenges but there are also a number of opportunities and I shall work with all the stakeholders of TAPMI to take TAPMI to greater heights.
Over the next couple of months, I intend attending several events and meetings at TAPMI and Manipal University. The purpose is to learn about TAPMI and also hear your thoughts and opinions on where you wish to see TAPMI go over the next 5 years.
It is in this context that I present to you Vision 2022.
I very much look forward to hearing your views and suggestions and talking to all the stakeholders and also learn from you.
Onwards and upwards
