Craving for doing something innovative and out of the box has always been the motto of the Institute of Journalism and Communication (IJC). Since its inception, IJC has been quite successful to groom the Gen-Next in meeting the global requirements of the media professionals. IJC has attracted the best brains of the students who are destined to have a bright future and also acquiring name and fame. Combination of our best infrastructure and incessant efforts of the most talented faculty members has resulted in grooming of the students both academically and professionally.
IJC has always enjoyed absolute freedom and support from the management to organize various events on the lush green campus. The Air-Conditioned classrooms as well as State of the Art TV Studio along with the well facilitated library providing latest books and journals have largely benefited the students and the faculties as well.
The Director is proud to put it on record with the collective efforts of the management and faculty members and has been enjoying the credit for the university ranker students from J&K, Uttarakhand, U.P., Rajasthan, MP, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Kerala etc and countries like Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Burundi, Swaziland(eSwatini), Botswana, and Nigeria. Even from Gujarat, IJC has attracted students from urban as well as rural areas and from various boards. Since the last four years, the IC students of journalism and mass communication not only participated in University Youth Fest and various other UG level competitions organized by the Government and the Universities but also brought laurels to the campus.
Apart from academics, the students who joined the institute are fortunate to have quite frequent interactive sessions with resource persons and experts from India and abroad. We are grateful to the dignitaries who extended their support in grooming our students. It is my firm belief that the students are always talented and if we give them required push, they can do miracles. Right from its inception IJC claims that we play catalyst role in grooming the students to bring out their hidden talents and sharpening their skills leading to they becoming somebody in their lives. Quite often we have carried out the survey of our students whether they have come to earn a mere degree, I am yet to come across a single one who has replied affirmative. In the field of journalism and communication, everyday is a new day, competitive day and IJC prefers to groom the students holistically which would help them in their professional and personal life whichever challenge they take up.
