Kalasalingam University
Vice Chairman
A man of few words, Dr. Shasi Anand Sridharan believes in and lives by the precept, ‘Actions speak louder than words.’​​
Upon completion of his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Florida, Shasi returned to India and took charge at Kalasalingam University in September 2015. After taking charge as Vice President of Kalasalingam University, he has several credits to his portfolio including spearheading the team to achieve the highest grade in NAAC in October 2015, launching the Agricultural programs in 2016, and initiating the school concept of management within the university in 2017. With an ardent interest in academics and from his experience at various universities in Singapore and the USA, Dr. Shasi has revolutionised the teaching-learning process by introducing new pedagogical initiatives and restructuring the curriculum and syllabi of all the courses, to be in line with the developments of the modern world. He also motivates faculty to work on innovative and socially relevant research projects, which in turn, help students in project-based learning for hands-on experience. He was instrumental in launching the research promotion scheme within the university to encourage and reward faculty involved in research.
Dr. Shasi is also instrumental in launching the Pharm. D. program at Kalasalingam College of Pharmacy. Having worked at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Chicago where he was given a “Gold Award” for his performance, he ensures that students understand the importance of industry exposure and internships, which help them get ready to face the challenges of the outside world upon graduation.
The motto of Shasi resonates with that of his family members, which is to transform the university and the group of institutions into truly global centres of knowledge and excellence.
