Abstract

Private universities have acknowledged importance in improving the quality of higher education due to their autonomy, motive and capacity to introduce innovations. Since they are self-financing entities, introducing innovations is vital to their sustainability. Srinivas University, as a private self-financing university, established in the year 2015 aims to become the most innovative higher education institution in India to bridge the gap between conventional education and next generation education through initiating radical reforms and thereby fulfill the goal of its founder to become most innovative higher education University. Srinivas University believes that scholastic backwardness is an inevitable product of marginalization and hence comprehensive development and inclusion agenda for minority, marginalized and scholastically backward students could create the necessary change. All major streams like medicine, engineering - technology and humanities finds place among the plethora of courses offered by the University. Being not-for-profit university, it aims to bring in innovations through curriculum design and implementation, teaching-learning process, examination and evaluation so that the students standout differently to become star performers. The vision of Srinivas University is to create star performers who would be intellectually robust, technically competent economically productive, socially inclined, ethically and emotionally sound to be best suited to face emerging challenges in all walks of life. In this paper, we have studied STAR framework as an overall beacon for development of Srinivas University.
