Invitational Debate on the occasion of Alumni Day on December 27th at IIEST Campus - Call for Debaters

The Global Alumni Association of Bengal Engineering & Science University (now Indian Institute of Science, Engineering and Technology or IIEST), Sibpore is hosting the Alumni Re-union on the last Sunday of the calendar year, a ritual on its first anniversary.   With the change in the status of the Institute from a State Government administered Engineering College (later on Deemed University to Bengal Engineering and Science University) to a Central Government run Institute of National Importance, the challenges and opportunities for the growth in the emerging areas together with the maintenance and improvement of existing infrastructure are significantly larger.  Actually, the difference is of completely different dimensions. With the recent emphasis in reduction of monetary assistance to all centrally administered institutions and potential of increasing budget deficits in those academic institutes, our Alma Mater (IIEST) will also encounter the increased cloud of uncertainty.   While IIEST shares the pride of having one of the most organized and benevolent Alumni base in the country, the important question the Alums are facing these days is how to support the institute and her communities in all possible areas in the changed environment.  As the boundaries are not defined, one of the fundamental questions that surfaces often is the role of the Alumni Association and whether the Alumni Association should be involved in the internal affairs of the institute.  This question can be addressed from many different directions and our association wants to take the opportunity to widen up the discussion forum in a structured manner.   In view of the above Global Alumni Association (consisting of graduates of BEC/BECDU/BESU and now IIEST) will host a debate on the Alumni Day at the Institute Hall in the Sibpore campus starting at 11.00 am with the following motion:   “Alumni should not interfere with the internal affairs of the Institute”.   This debate will be judged by none other than our Distinguished Alumnus, Honorary Sri Tathagata Roy, Governor of Tripura.  Participation from all constituents of IIEST will enrich the deliberations and we expect this healthy discussion will shed light on the institute-alumni collaboration, intensify passionate participation from the alumni communities and encourage many such discussions in the future to address uncertainties.

If you are interested to participate please let me know whether you would like to speak in favor or against the motion. Since time is a constraint and we have lot of other fun filled activities we will have to limit the number of speakers in the forum.   Therefore, it will be of real help to submit a brief bio (no more than 100 words) in support of your nomination by 16th December 2015. Also, if you think there are interested speakers in our IIEST Community who can add value to these deliberations plea se feel free to forward the announcement.

Thank you,

Biman Ghosh, 1981 Met President, GAABESU
