Governing Councils have been established for individual institutions to oversee the design, development and effective implementation of various academic, co-curricular and enrichment programs. The council also plays an important role in providing adequate infrastructure and competent human resources.
Renowned individuals from academic, industrial and civic backgrounds are selected as representatives of the councils. Besides, nominees from affiliating boards/universities such as the Pre-University Board, Bengaluru North University, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, AICTE and other academic and regulatory bodies also constitute these councils. Adequate representation is also invited and included from the staff, student community and other stakeholders in order to make policy design and governance participatory and inclusive. The Governing Councils meet often and deliberate on various issues, guide institutional heads and submit recommendations to the board of trustees.
