Before closing the academic year 2021-22, LIBA organized its customary three-day Faculty Retreat for Faculty, Research Associates (RA’s), Teaching Assistants (TA’s) on 26th- 28th April, at Esthells, Chennai. Prof. P.C. Lakshmi Narayanan, Dean-Academics, welcomed the gathering and presented the agenda of the retreat. Rev. Fr. C. Joe Arun, Director-LIBA, led the gathering through the prayer for disposition and shared the perspectives of the Faculty Retreat 2022. He also envisioned that LIBA must build its capacities to become tech talented and be able to think and act differently for which diversity, equity, and inclusion are strategic necessities. Fr. Director set the perspective for the academic year 2022-23 as “Collaboration” which would be the energy that would drive everyone forward in LIBA and said that this act of discernment in academic areas will pervade team spirit and collaboration. The Retreat helped to review the implementation of plan made at the last year’s retreat and gain a reorientation for the coming academic year for which goals and action plans were evolved at all levels of teaching-learning-assessment, and at the level of Centres of Excellence.
