FAREWELL AND NEW BEGINININGS
On August 15, 2014, HEIRA ceases to exist under that name.
 

As part of its interest in working towards changing the higher education sector in India, the Centre for the Study of Culture and Society (CSCS), established in 1998, set up a Higher Education Cell in 2007 in collaboration with the Sir Ratan Tata Trust. The ground for this had been prepared when CSCS faculty members Tejaswini Niranjana and Mrinalini Sebastian had researched the history and present situation of Indian higher education to write up a Strategy Paper for the Trust.

The Paper listed the possible directions in which independent funding could help address the different kinds of crises in the sector – to do with inflexible institutional structures, outdated and non-relevant curricula, poorly trained teachers, and lack of new resources for students.
