The society and academia must go hand in hand. Educationshould be tailored to meet the current need of the society that is currently at the cusp of change. Academic programs especially the humanities must provoke students to think through issues that concern the human world and sensitize them to the structured nature of social problems to enable them to contribute towards the human resource enhancement.The studies in humanities must train students to critically understand the literary, linguistic and cultural issues from an interdisciplinary and liberal perspective and help them arrive at possible solutions with creativity and flexibility. The School of Language, Literature and Culture at SRM University, Sikkim provides the necessary academic training to the students to concretize their foundations in language, literature and culture studies offering them a platform to think across conventional disciplinary boundaries and shape their ideas into well-meaning social deliverables.
