Values For Life
Sanctuary – Art of Living Course
Living Our Mission and Vision
At SVIMS, Value education focuses on character building and we walk the talk in a special session everyday called the Sanctuary, which is largely student-centric and participation oriented. Students take turns to organize the sessions, in which they devote time to discussing ethical issues and dilemmas related to workaday life in the corporate and academic world, and spirituality in daily life and the organization. In the words of Rev. Dada J.P. Vaswani, we emphasise the idea that “Reverence is the root of education and Service is the fruit of Education”. Our aim is to instil in the students the spirit of ‘sewa’ or service to the community.
The students not only take an active interest in their Sanctuary, but enjoy their roles and responsibilities as organizers/participants in the sanctuary sessions. They have also created their own Sanctuary Facebook Page through which they share their views and responses to issues raised in the Sanctuary.
Institute has a vision to create ethical and effective corporate women leaders. With this vision in mind SVIMS focusses on using Sanctuary to promote:
