Free and open to the public
Institution building is an act of faith. The outcome often is uncertain. However, the journey is very exciting. That's why we call it "adventure". In the education sector I have been a witness to such an adventure in the journey of IIMA for more than 45 years. Now the second journey has started with AU. The lessons learnt in the first journey are relevant to this one.
Institutions pass through various phases - founding phase, start up phase, development phase,consolidation and perpetual rejuvenation. Leadership, context and resourcefulness are the key determinants. Building AU is one such adventure. What it offers is a balanced and satisfying life in terms of material, intellectual, cultural, social and self-fulfillment needs.
