Loyola College of Social Sciences, Thiruvananthapuram, and Christ College of Engineering, Irinjalakuda, have come together to start academic forums for their students. Similar forums exist in Rajadhani Business School, Saintgits College of Engineering, TKM Institute of Management, and Muthoot Institute of Technology and Science.Academic forums have become highly popular among colleges. The success of various initiatives, such as one-to-one mentoring, project management sessions for students and faculty, and internships and placement drives for students has got wide attention. The annual academic conclave, WINGS, and the business quiz that is conducted as part of the conclave have also created interest in the chapter’s Academic Forum program.The chapter is hosting the 2021 edition of WINGS on 29 August. It is an online event that will benefit students who are part of Academic Forums. This year, as an added advantage, the chapter plans to include student beneficiaries of DISHA and also those students who were supported through PMIK-Naandi MPC collaboration for employability skills training and placement.
