Faculty Seminar Series
The idea of the Research Forum was initiated by Dr. Daphne Pillai, Chairperson, MES Management Board in recognition of a need to foster research practices among various departments of the Mahatma Education Society. The Forum was founded in April 2004 when Prof. Smita Dalvi was given its charge as the chairperson. With the active patronage of Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai, CEO, MES and enthusiastic and able support of the executive committee members, the Forum has been successful in creating an environment of academic fellowship among diverse institutes of the Mahatma Education Society.
Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai, CEO MES, delivered a spirited key Note Address in which he emphasized the importance of carrying out research in an educational institute and laid down a road map for MES and its faculty. He inspired the gathering by drawing upon his vast experience in India and abroad. In the workshop which followed, budding researchers were oriented by a team of in-house experts of the MES.
