The latest from IIM Kashipur
"An initiative to keep you informed and provide all out support in this difficult time.”
IIM Kashipur has taken a number of steps in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Institute is taking all the measures required to carry on with its academic activities in the next session.
As of now Faculty Members, Area Chairs and Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) Chairs are conducting the following activities through online mode:
• PhD first year and second year classes
This will further extend to MBA classes and exams depending upon the situation.
An online interactive meeting with the students of MBA first year (2019–2021 Batch) was organised wherein the queries, doubts and issues raised by the students were addressed by. In response to the students’ request and uncertainties about reliable Internet connectivity in remotes areas, students are now permitted to take their examination online or offline according to their convenience. The online exams are now underway.
Psychological Support to Students
The Institute has engaged with YourDOST, an online platform to connect the students with psychologists on 24X7 basis. YourDOST has a pool of experts across India to counsel and help the students whenever needed. Students, who may be experiencing any kind of stress, feeling low, depressed may get in touch with YourDOST any time through phone calls, emails or WhatsApp. The Institute is engaged with YourDOST informally from January and formally launched the service from February 2020 on a trial basis for three months, and will be continued if the usage is good and their support is found effective. So far, data for the last two months shows that the usage of the service has been high and students are extensively using the services, given the COVID-19 outbreak, lockdown environment, postponement and cancellation of some of the internships.
