You are the dean of an engineering college. You have received a complaint regarding prejudice against students from lower castes by some senior professors. These professors have contributed a lot academically to the university. However, this particular instance has disturbed peace and harmony in the campus. (a) Discuss the immediate steps you would take to contain growing discontent among some students. (b) Discuss the action to be taken if the professors are found to be guilty and also evaluate the steps if it comes out to be a false case against the professors. (c) What should be the responsibilities of professors and students to create positive social ambience in the campus? 10 marks

Mentor’s comment-

  • In the introduction briefly explain the case study.
  • The case is about social discrimination- perceived or actual. The answer should be written from the perspective of the Dean and not any other party. List the facts of the case. To clarify the course of action, list the priorities. Mention the constitutional values and your duties as a dean. You can choose the right course of action and make it acceptable to all. As such, whatever course you choose,
    there should be accompanying explanation about how to convince others about it, i.e. you should address the demerits.
  • Conclude with a fair and balanced approach.
