XAVIER SCHOOL OF SUSTAINABILITY

  • Three year Bachelor’s Degree Program in Human Development (B.Sc. - HD)
  • Three year Bachelor’s Degree Program in Sustainable Development (B.Sc. - SD)
  • Three year Bachelor’s Degree Program in Sustainability Science & Technology (B.Sc. - SST)

These programs are offered with an aim to reach out to the large audience of students and youth that are likely to be both decision makers and beneficiaries with regard to Human Development and Sustainable Development in the next generation. Just as the importance of planning in the welfare State permeated people’s consciousness through the educational curriculum, it is hoped that such academic programs will help integrate Human Development and Sustainable Development into the mainstream debate on development as formulated through university textbooks and research. Only when the concept and practice of these two developments mingle with academic debate and research and consequently give rise to schools of interpretation, can it truly be said to have become a field, as distinct from a fad or preoccupation of a few.

B.Sc. - HD Three year bachelor’s degree program In Human Development

Human Development occupies a significant place in the discussion and discourse on development. Human Development can be seen not only as a means, but also an end for development. Economic growth alone does not automatically translate into human development progress. Pro-poor policies and significant investments in people’s capabilities – through a focus on education, nutrition and health and employment skills-can expand access to decent work and provide for sustained progress. National policies focusing on the physical aspects of development alone seem inadequate to attain national objectives such as justice: social, economic, and political. Such development is incomplete, if it does not have a people-centric approach in order to enable them to enjoy a decent standard of living. Hence, today, both the practice and pedagogy of development are increasingly moving beyond the classical realm of economics. Indeed, one may argue that the very frontiers of these disciplines are themselves being pushed forward to focus on people, institutions and public action.

The State and National Human Development Reports (HDRs), published annually identify and analyze a theme and also compare the status of countries on the human development index. The Human Development Reports have captured the attention of policy makers and several governments have prepared National Human Development Reports to analyze the status of human development in their respective countries. The imparting of Human Development course by XUB is a part of this ongoing effort to integrate Human Development concerns in the pedagogy of development. In the present scenario, there is an increasing demand for trained Human Development professionals who can assist the government in scanning and preparing Human Development reports at the State and National level. B.Sc-HD will help students understand development dilemmas in addition to building their capability, aptitude and ability. It helps strengthen human beings not only intellectually but also socially and ethically.

Program Objectives

The Program aims at enabling the prospective students to;

  • Analyze the effects of historical, social, political, economic, cultural, and global forces on the area under study.
  • Measure and Report Human Development and will be able to critically evaluate theories and research on Human Development.
  • Identify, plan, revise, analyze, utilize, critique, assess and evaluate development programs and projects.
  • Appreciate the significance of human rights, governance, dimensions, ethics, sustainability, financing and managerial competencies of human development.
  • Acquire in-depth knowledge of the local, national and global perspectives and experiences in Human Development and develop their problem solving and analytical thinking skills through exposure to practical examples.
  • Compete and make informed choices for pursuing higher education at Post Graduate and doctoral level in the field of social sciences and sustainable development.

Program Focus

  • Human Development: Concept and Evolution
  • Dimensions of Human Development
  • Measurement and Reporting on Human Development
  • Governance & Institutions for Human Development and Evaluation of Human Development Programs and Projects.
  • Factors Impacting Human Development
  • Sustainability, Financing and Managerial Competencies of Human Development.

Designing this Unique Curriculum on Human Development: A collaborative process

The program has been designed in collaboration with UNDP-India which assisted XIMB/XUB. A two day national workshop titled “Building Institutional Capacities for Mainstreaming Human Development” was organised on 29th and 30th October 2014at XIMB/XUB. This important workshop was attended by eminent thinkers and practitioners representing academic institutions, civil society organisations, government departments and UN agencies. Some of the organisations participated in this workshop are, UNDP-India, TISS, JNU, IGIDR, OXFAM, IIT-Guwahati, Assam University, National Law University, Odisha, PHFI, Institute for Human Development, Guwahati University, Assam University, Patna University, Planning Commission, GoI and CYSD.

Pedagogy

There will be multiple teaching methods including interactive lecture sessions,case analysis, group discussions, interaction with experts and practitioners and use of videos, documentaries and films related to Human Development. The program will be research based and will also have the following practical components of 5 credits each.

2 Mini Research Projects (5 Credits each-one month in 2nd year and one month in 3rd year)

As already mentioned that the program is research based, the students will be required to take up two mini research projects which are micro studies, either desk based or desk and field based on a topic of current interest.

Summer Internship (two months in 3rd year)

Students will spend eight weeks in various organisations to learn and experience how Human Development is being mainstreamed in both organisations and the community. The students will assist the host organization in preparing Human Development Report at the National, State, District, Block and Panchayat level. They will also analyze the current reports to identify gaps and develop strategies for future use.

Capstone Project (5 Credits - two months in 3rd year)

Each student has to undertake a capstone project in which they have to design and develop a Human Development Report of the project area. Capstone Projects are usually more “experiential” projects where students take what they’ve learned in the class and apply it to examine a specific idea in the form of an action project and write his/her learning and experiences which can add to development of knowledge, skill and behavioral change.

Program Structure

The Program will have a Foundation Course in the 1st year, Core Course in the 2nd year and Applied Course in the 3rd year spread over 6 semesters in these three years. A student has to earn a total of 150 credits (50 credits in each year)

B.Sc. – SD Three year bachelor’s degree program in Sustainable Development

The United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which are a set of 8 goals that all 191 UN member states had agreed following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000 and following the adoption of the United Nations Millennium Declaration commit world leaders to combat poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and discrimination against women by 2015. No doubt, the 15 year concerted efforts of national governments, the international community, civil society and the private sector have helped expand hope and opportunity for people around the world and has produced the most successful anti- poverty movement in history, yet the job is unfinished for millions of people. We need to go the last mile on ending hunger, achieving full gender equality, improving health services and getting every child into school. The time has come to shift the world onto a sustainable path.

The framing of developmental debates is going to change a bit in the coming days with the adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda in the forthcoming UN Summit in Sept 2015 in New York. The negotiations to finalize the agenda – Transforming our world: The 2030 Agenda for Global Action – are in their last stages. What we will soon see would be called Sustainable Development Goals, Goals (SDG). These SDGs would be replacing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that are set to expire at the end of 2015. The SDGs will guide policy and funding for the next 15 years, beginning with a historic pledge this coming September to end poverty, everywhere permanently. The SDGs were first talked about at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (popularly known as Rio+20) held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012. The 17 goals that one is more likely to hear about in the coming days are: end poverty and hunger, ensure well being and quality education, gender equality, water and sanitation, affordable and sustainable energy, productive employment, technology to benefit all, reduce inequality, safe cities and communities, sustainable consumption, combat climate change, conserve and sustainable use of marine resources, restoration of terrestrial ecosystems, promote peace and justice and revitalizing the global partnership for sustainable development. They are action-oriented, concise and easy to communicate, limited in number, aspirational, global in nature and universally applicable to all countries while taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities.

Sustainable development which means development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs is one of the most pressing challenges facing humanity today. Sustainable development recognizes the inseparable link between people, the planet, and wealth; it advocates for policies that fully consider these three components to ensure that none negatively impact the others. Achieving sustainable development requires systemic and integrated approaches that consider the complex interactions between the planet’s natural and social systems, while working at multiple levels of society, from the local to the global. The role of universities in this context assumes significance in order to create and nurture the next generation of managers and leaders who can anchor sustainable development. Building on XIMB’s (Xavier Institute of Management Bhubaneswar) cutting-edge programs in business, rural management and sustainability management and its uncompromising spirit of caring for nature, Xavier University Bhubaneswar (XUB) has decided to respond to the global call and cry to promote the cause of sustainable development.

In order to promote sustainable development that can contribute to nation building a first of its kind Bachelor Degree Program in Sustainable Development of XUB is founded on the belief that students must be trained in a variety of disciplines in order to be effective leaders in the field of Sustainable Development. This program aims to equip students with values of equity, justice, peace and ecological and ethical sensitivity towards creating a future world of the 21st century which deeply connects nature and humanity.

Program Objectives
