V.I.S.V.A.S an Virtuous Academic System NGO
V.I.S.V.A.S. (Visionary Initiative to Sculpt a Virtuous Academic System) is an NGO started by two IIT alumni with an aim to build globally competitive academic systems through student initiatives.
It began when Vinayak and Bhushan took an initiative to upgrade the existing library infrastructure during their final year at IIT Delhi. What followed was a wide spread support from all sections of students and an active action group was formed on campus which later transformed into an NGO.
Currently VISVAS is present in many campuses of Delhi and has developed products to improve the academic system. The prominent ones are ‘droabe’, which is a private web based notice board for an institute; and ‘exam archive’, which is an online collection of old exam papers.
Vinayak writes a personal blog at vinayakgarg.com where not only does he talks about the prevalent problems and bottlenecks in the current academic system, but he also tries to find a possible solution to the same. In his latest blog post he has explored the admission process of Delhi University and possible improvements.
I would recommend anyone interested or related to education sector in any form to subscribe to his blog.
Vinayak completed his engineering from IIT Delhi in 2008, standing first in his class. He also spent a year in France on an exchange programme from IIT. He is currently working in a consulting firm in the division of Government Reforms and Infrastructure Development.
Vinayak co-founded an NGO V.I.S.V.A.S. (Visionary Initiative to Sculpt a Virtuous Academic System), which aims to build globally competitive academic systems through student initiatives.
