National Institute of Design Faces Faculty Shortage

The upcoming new National Institute of Design in Hyderabad has raised concerns related to faculty on existing campuses in Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, and Bangalore.

As the new campus will have a demand for experienced faculty, which may lead to staff crunch on the old campuses of NID.

As of now, there are 65 fulltime faculty members on the 3 campuses, with a shortage of 35 fulltime faculty members. The old campuses have 260 visiting members, helping the NIDs for smooth functioning.

Though the visiting faculty members are experienced, they don't take full-semester courses. However, NID director Prof Pradyumna Vyas said the crunch was not severe. "Every institute is grappling with faculty crunch," he said. "In NID, we're lucky to have 260 visiting faculty members."

On plans to recruit more, he said: "We don't want more fulltime faculty members as beyond a point their output becomes limited, while visiting teachers come with a fresh spirit."
