Student Affairs and Welfare Council
The Student Affairs and Welfare Council can best be defined as the heart of IMT Ghaziabad. The role that the council performs is cross-functional to the hilt and spans across every function of student life as well as the administration and endeavors to enhance student life and further enrich Brand IMT Ghaziabad.
SAWC is the first touch point for all students as soon as they arrive on campus and strives to ensure a smooth transition into the life at a B-School for people coming from diverse backgrounds. The council facilitates their initial interactions with the seniors and holds sessions to equip the students for the rigors of the B-School life. The Council also organizes the flagship management-cum-cultural festival of IMT Ghaziabad, PASSION and is responsible for all management related activities and events for one of the biggest management festivals in the entire B-School fraternity.
The council also facilitates working of the administration by representing the student point of view and being the student body, represents the voice of the students in key matters such as designing course curriculum, organizing guest lectures, seminars and various other events to add value to student life. The council acts as the single interface between the administration and the students, solving doubts and addressing concerns with new procedures and policies designed by the administration.
SAWC plays a key role in every facet of student life at IMT-G and ensures smooth and hassle-free functioning of all events undertaken by itself as well as all clubs and committees. Designing the batch apparel, a proud belonging of every IMTian, as well as facilitating hostel allocation along with various other tasks are undertaken by SAWC to ensure hassle free student life at IMT-G.
In the year 2013, SAWC organized the first ever CYCLOTHON as a precursor to PASSION, and also as a social initiative on behalf of the Institute. The theme for Cyclothon 2013 was ‘Ride for the honor of women’, and highlighted the need for gender equality and women safety. The event was a huge success and saw a massive turnout. The second edition, Cyclothon 2014, focused on lifestyle related diseases, with the theme ‘Two wheels. One passion. Be healthwise’. SAWC intends to take CYCLOTHON to newer heights every year and facilitate student contribution towards society by highlighting key issues.
A few accomplishments of SAWC amongst many others are highlighted here:
• Organized various guest lectures, inviting illustrious speakers on campus from Groupon, Benchmark Six Sigma, etc.
• Organized various events such as Benchmark Six Sigma Certification etc.
Despite organizing various value adding activities round the year, the council isn’t all work and no play. SAWC holds the most awaited social gatherings every year including Freshers’ and Farewell night, New Year Celebration etc.
The council endeavors to better its efforts every year to ensure maximum value addition to student life at IMT-G and strives to achieve excellence in all aspects to further IMT’s heavyweight brand value across the industry and the entire B-School fraternity.
