The Faculty

Over a period of three decades, PIM has accumulated a wealth of experience in adult learning, research and consultancy. Most of the teachers of the Institute today have been at the task for many years, and hence they form a core team of academics who set standards, integrate locally-found knowledge into regular curricula, and coordinate among the many faculty members with speed and flexibility.Our faculty team comprises permanent teachers, teachers on contract and visiting academics/professionals.
