Academic Staff College (ASC) is dedicated towards creating a culture of academic excellence and conducting faculty development activities for all our schools and centers at VIT Vellore. We conduct regular dialogue with different stakeholders of the university and coordinate with schools and centers towards achieving our purpose. Faculty Orientation Program(FOP) is our month long flagship event conducted once every year to induct the new faculty as they join our family. The regular faculty development programs are conducted in half day, one or two day and 5-day formats to cater to different needs of our existing faculty across domains and disciplines all through the year. The Faculty development programs are designed to ensure all round development and well-being of our faculty members. We also network with international resource persons and universities as well as industry experts and invite the best resource persons to our university. We help our faculty stay updated with the latest developments in teaching, research and technology and thus to create a world class learning environment for our students.
