we believe that a successful future cannot be built without reflecting into the past and learning from our experiences as well as those of others. As an extension to this ideology of ours we organize the Institute Lecture Series featuring eminent personalities from various walks of life to share with us their experiences. Through this initiative, we want our students and faculty to develop a broader perspective of their responsibility to society and to give them an opportunity to listen to remarkable life stories of our esteemed panel of speakers.
