STUDENT COUNCIL

The Student Council, being the apex student body of the Institute, is charged with the broad responsibility of overseeing all student activities in IIM Shillong. It is the representative structure of the students of the institute and its core responsibility is to act as an interface between the Institute’s Administration, various student bodies and the batch as a whole.

The Student Council organises the flagship event of the institute, The IIM Shillong Golf Cup and the annual B-School fest of the institute, Khlur-Thma. The Golf Cup, the only golf tournament organised by a B-School in India, acts as a great platform to increase corporate interaction with the institute. This year over 120 players from Government, Corporate and Media battled it out on the greens. The Annual B-School fest, Khlur-Thma which means "War of Stars" was also a success, witnessing participation from various B-Schools across India.

'Nurturing Minds', the teaching initiative in the memory of Late Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam is a brainchild of the Student Council and the Administration. The initiative intends to capture the essence of Dr Kalam's teachings, "Education for All, for Development" by leveraging the availability of resources with the institute to give back to the local community. It aims to touch the lives of the young and underprivileged students in Shillong by facilitating better learning and inculcating self-confidence in them. The initiative was kick started on the 15th of October 2015, the 84th Birth Anniversary of Dr Kalam. The response to 'Nurturing Minds' has been overwhelming from both, the local schools in coaxing their students to enrol for the programme and the students of our institute in volunteering as teachers for the same. Having started with classes for students of class 8th this year, the intention is to expand to classes 9th and 10th in the coming years.​

The Council is also actively assisting the Institute's Administration in introducing a Student Exchange Program and this year, the first batch of students are expected to commence the same.

The Student Council exists to create synergy for the institute by nurturing a sense of collaboration among its stakeholders and ensuring that the values on the basis of which the institute was established are upheld during the course of its growth.

SYMPHONY

Symphony, the literary committee of IIM Shillong, is an exalted platform for all those who strive to profess through words, colours or strokes.

Symphony publishes an annual magazine for the institute in the same name presenting erudite artistry of the participants of the institute. Providing an opportunity to express through articles, poems, art pieces and photographs, the Symphony magazine is a structured amalgamation of the thoughts of the participants. This year, the theme of the magazine elaborates the idea of perspectives and the inherent difference amongst the constituents of the society as they all look at different things ‘through the looking glass’. Symphony also organises movie shows from an elaborate set of horror to comedy, animated to drama et al for the participants to relish a state of the fictional within the periphery of reality.

This year, the committee organised sessions on gaining expertise in group discussions for all participants engaging in the summer internship process. This helped them gain access to some fundamental tips for content, voice modulation and presentation as part of a group discussion.

Collating ideas for the readers of the institute, Symphony presents the expressions of the minds of the ones around you.
