Mulya Pravah 2.0: Elevating Ethics in Higher Ed



  Jan 09, 2024

Mulya Pravah 2.0 in Higher Education



What is Mulya Pravah 2.0?

Mulya Pravah 2.0 is a set of guidelines issued by the University Grants Commission (UGC) in India. It’s an updated version of Mulya Pravah, first introduced in 2019, and focuses on instilling human values and professional ethics in higher education institutions.

Why was Mulya Pravah 2.0 introduced?

The need for such guidelines arose from unethical practices identified in various organizations, including favoritism, gender discrimination, and breaches of confidentiality. The aim is to build educational institutions that are deeply respectful of fundamental duties, constitutional values, and national bonding.

Key Aspects of Mulya Pravah 2.0:

1. Transparency and Integrity: The guidelines emphasize transparency in administration and decision-making based on public and institutional interests.
2. Ethical Conduct: They call for ethical conduct, inclusiveness, respectfulness, and commitment from both students and faculty.
3. Accountability: There’s a focus on ensuring accountability, fairness, and honesty in higher education administration.
4. Confidentiality vs Right to Information: While maintaining confidentiality is highlighted, this raises questions about the balance with the right to information for ensuring accountability.
5. Role of Teachers and Unions: Teachers are encouraged to be role models, and staff and student unions are expected to support the administration and raise issues respectfully.

Concerns and Challenges:

Implementation: Ensuring that these values are truly integrated into the education system in practice, not just in policy.
Potential Misuse: The vagueness of terms like ‘dignified manner’ could lead to misuse, undermining stakeholders’ voices.
Union Activities: The guidelines’ stance on unions suggests they should align with the administration, which may conflict with their role as representatives of their members’ interests.

Impact on Higher Education:

Mulya Pravah 2.0 aims to enhance the ethical and value-based functioning of higher education institutions. However, its success depends on balanced implementation, considering the interests and rights of all stakeholders, including students, faculty, and administration.

In summary, Mulya Pravah 2.0 is an initiative to foster a value-driven educational environment in India, addressing various ethical challenges in higher education, with a need for careful implementation to ensure it benefits the educational community as intended.
