Nupur Sharma


President of IPAS

As the President for IPAS for the year 2019, I aim to project our ideas and events with enthusiasm and creativity, along with the academic staff and most importantly the students in the department, whose input would be a binding force in the society. To maintain, the continuous involvement in the community and department, there are a lot of upcoming events, wherein we can share snacks and ideas. During my term, I will keep my spirits high and ensure that you keep writing to me with your concerns and feedback.
