Walk-with-a-Scholar (WWS) has been designed to arrange specialized mentoring programmes for students in Under Graduate Programs in Arts, Science and Commerce streams. The scheme originally introduced the idea of mentoring, building on the concept of mentor as a “Guide and Friend”. It increases awareness regarding higher studies and career options in one’s academic field and improves interpersonal functioning.
A scholar is one who engages in critical thinking, takes an active role in the learning process, understands multiple perspectives, is internally motivated to learn, and is socially conscious. Keeping in mind these aspects and the perceived needs of our college students, WWS aims to nurture a scholarly attitude among selected bright college students in all disciplines, provide them with learning opportunities to help sharpen their academic and critical thinking skills, help them confidently pursue their personal and academic goals, and guide them to develop into socially responsible citizens
