The objective of publishing this dossier is to ensure that we have a guideline in place as a part of our Post-COVID readiness for the University to function. The guideline has been prepared bearing in mind the fact that if the situations that we live in grow adverse or remain unviable, REVA is future-ready and prepared to face any challenge. Hence, the book that started as a dossier, also carries an insight into the COVID time challenges that REVA University faced undauntingly. The REVA team worked almost magically, covering the syllabus, extended remote support, with consistent and planned remote instruction, online support for counselling and also online assessments and evaluation leading to results being released timely. The book traverses through the last few months chronicling each stage of the University during these difficult times, in the form of captured images, anecdotes, student testimonials and also detailed notes for deeper understanding of the process in most sections. Placement, skill development, employment engagement programmes, webinars, international conferences, training and support for faculty, guest talks were all part of this tapestry of revolutionary education and together REVA Reimagined Education! While guidelines are being laid by many agencies including the UN for reopening of educational institutions, care and forethought is required independently by each of us and therefore I felt the need to bring out a compiled book for our benefit, which perhaps can be a guide for others too.
