Symbiosis Centre for International Education (SCIE) is a department within Symbiosis International (Deemed University) committed to promoting a range of values and competencies that contribute to developing a better world. One of the primary goals of Symbiosis is to inculcate the spirit of 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,' which translates to 'the world is one family.'
To achieve this goal, Symbiosis promotes cross-cultural sensitisation and develops global competencies amongst students. Doing so helps foster a sense of belonging and understanding across cultures, essential for creating a harmonious and peaceful world.
Symbiosis also promotes ethical and value-based learning, which is critical for creating responsible and accountable citizens. The department believes that nurturing creativity and encouraging entrepreneurship is another essential aspect of creating a better world. By enhancing employability and contributing to human resource development, Symbiosis helps to create a skilled workforce that can contribute to the growth and development of society.
Another critical aspect of SIU's mission is to promote health and wellness amongst students, staff, and the community. In addition, the department believes that promoting sensitivity towards the community and environment is crucial for creating a sustainable future.
