Network18 signs MoU with St Stephen's College to promote inclusivity in education

Network 18, promoter of popular news brands CNN-IBN and IBN7, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with St Stephen’s College.

The MoU will further the aim of educational inclusivity. As part of this initiative, Stephen’s College will offer a Certificate Course in “Citizenship & Cultural Richness”.

Under the Course, St Stephen’s College will hold weekly classes conducted by its regular faculty and distinguished alumni including top serving and retired judges, bureaucrats and renowned academicians.

The lecture content will be hosted across the digital and social media platforms of Network18 (ibnlive.com &ibnkhabar.com) and St Stephen’s College (www.ststephens.edu).

Inaugurating the unique Course here last Saturday, Justice Madan B Lokur, Supreme Court Judge, said, “This Course is ready to reach out to people to make them better citizens and to help the society.”

Lauding the joint initiative, Valson Thampu, Principal, St Stephen’s College, Delhi, said, “The very purpose of the Course is to enable students and citizens to live a rich life and to become responsible citizens. I am delighted that Network 18, particularly CNN-IBN has gladly come forward to support this initiative, which is a signal of the robustness of media.”

Speaking at the launch event, Umesh Upadhyay, President, News, Network 18 said, “We will help in every way possible to promote this Course and make this an initiative that will make our youth into responsible citizens, who contribute to the growth of this country. We are grateful to St Stephen’s for partnering us on this mission to help make media more responsible and conscientious.”

CNN-IBN and IBN7 will align their unique award winning Citizen Journalist Show with the Course offered under the joint initiative.  The idea is to encourage the citizens enrolled in the course to become Citizen Journalists and highlight issues and problems around them as faced by the common man.

Under its Media Institute Initiative (MII), Network18 engages with top academic institutions across the country and abroad through a structured and collaborative approach. The MII endeavor is aimed at deepening the academia-industry interface through seminars, internships, guest lectures and other interventions for sector specific capability enhancement.
