Description
The book is the first of its kind to systematically examine the role and functions of the President of India, while acting as the Visitor to the higher education institutions. It critically analyses the legal, constitutional, and institutional frameworks while  evaluating the contribution of the President of India in his capacity as the visitor. The book seeks to bring issues relating to institutional governance within the larger framework of transparency and accountability of higher education institutions. While the book examines the specific contributions  and policy level initiatives taken by the President of India while acting as the Visitor of the higher education institutions, it underscores the general significance of the Presidential engagement for promoting excellence in institutions. The book examines this role by bringing comparative and international perspectives on the growth and evolution of the role of the Visitor in higher education institutions and how this role has shaped the governance.
