The theme of the conclave was "Liberal Arts Education: Creating Thinkers for the 21st Century". The Conclave witnessed participation of more than 50 school Principals and counselors from across Delhi and NCR region.

The Speaker Panel comprised Mr. Aditya Berlia, Pro-Chancellor & Co-Founder, Apeejay Stya University, Dr. Jitender Nagpal, Child Psychiatrist and Dr. Aruna Broota, Child Psychologist.

Delivering his keynote speech at the conclave, Mr. Aditya Berlia, Co-Founder & Pro-Chancellor, Apeejay Stya University said, “A Liberal Arts approach, which forms the very basis of our University, does not restrict individuals by the boundaries of discipline. Here they are both free and encouraged to pursue knowledge according to the dictates of their own hearts and minds.”

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Nagapal, Consultant Psychiatrist and Dr. Broota, Clinical Psychologist, emphasized on the role and importance of a liberal arts approach to education in nurturing the young minds to understand their life and career better. The topic for Dr Nagpal’s deliberation was: Towards Well being in Schools- Emerging Challenges and good practices. Dr Broota, on the other hand, laid emphasis on Creativity v/s Programming and the Role of Schools.

This amalgamation of educationists across the national capital region at the conclave provided a thought provoking platform to the attendants and helped them to realize the need and essence of liberal arts in Indian pedagogy.

True to its name, a Liberal Arts education is a process of liberating the minds. No matter what course of study one focuses on, it incorporates a little bit of everything into his or her academic experience be it the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities and the arts. One will see science majors thriving in the arts. A Liberal arts education fosters critical thinking, need for cognition, interest in diversity, leadership, moral reasoning and well-being which is lacking in current Indian education system.

Amongst other key attendees were Ms. Nisha Berlia, President, Apeejay Stya Education Research Foundation (ASERF), Dr. Vinod Sarang Garg, Education Advisor, Apeejay Education Society (AES) and Prof. Kamal Kant Dwivedi, Vice- Chancellor, Apeejay Stya University, were.
