Academic Leadership and Centre for Education Management (CALEM)
Academic expertise is not sufficient for the successful leadership and management of educational institutions. To build capacities of existing academic leaders and administrators and to draw fresh talent into the management of the school and higher educational systems, the Centre for Academic Leadership and Education Management (CALEM) at Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) has been set up to administer training programs for Higher education and school leaders and administrators.
CALEM has been set up under the Government of India’s Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching (PMMMNMTT). The PMMMNMTT had proposed to set up five centres for Academic leadership and education management in India, and TISS was one of the institutions that was finally approved by Government of India for setting up centres of academic leadership and education management.
