“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Mere transferring of information is not what is expected from an educational institution. Every student comes with myriad qualities and infinite potential. To channel those strengths into positive avenues is what is expected from educators. Along with this, there is the uniquely invisible trait present in students – this astounding attribute called Character. It is the bounden duty of places of learning to provide enough challenges so that the character of students is finely landscaped, in addition to delivering the required knowledge characteristics that make up an engineering graduate. This is the Holistic Learning envisaged at JIT.
