Mulya Pravah 2.0: UGC’s Values And Ethics In Higher Education Education 5 min read

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has issued a guideline Mulya Pravah 2.0, a modified version of Mulya Pravah. It focuses on human values and professional ethics in higher education.

About Mulya Pravah

  • In 2019, the UGC created "Mulya Pravah" guidelines to promote ethical behavior and values in colleges and universities. These guidelines are part of the Quality Mandate initiative.
  • These guidelines have been revised to include the key recommendations of the National Education Policy, 2020 (NEP-2020) announced on July 29, 2020. 
  • The revised guidelines are called Mulya Pravah 2.0. Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) should teach students to strongly appreciate Fundamental Duties and Constitutional Values.

Aim of Mulya Pravah 2.0

  • The guidelines focus on the curriculum and teaching methods used in HEIs. The goal is to create a strong bond with country and create awareness about responsibilities in a changing world.
  • The guidelines stress the importance of values that are important to all humans.
  • The values are truth, righteous conduct, peace, love, non-violence, scientific temper, citizenship values, and life skills.
  • A well-rounded education includes lessons in service. It also includes participating in community service programs. 

Importance of Mulya Pravah

  • The policy suggests that education should shape character. It should help learners become ethical, rational, compassionate, and caring.
  • It should prepare them for meaningful employment. India and the world are committed to promoting human values and professional ethics. This is done to improve our collective coexistence.
  • The National Education Policy, 2020 (NEP 2020), the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, 2030 (SDG 2030), and the related Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4) on Education can now guide higher education in adopting value-based and ethical practices.
