The Higher Education Forum (HEF), a voluntary non-profit group of individuals aiming at bringing reforms in higher education, has awarded Professor Dr Uday Salunkhe, Group Director, Welingkar Institute of Management, as the best teacher under the category of Global Leadership, considering his immense contribution to create a global higher education institution in India.

Renowned mentors such as Professor AK Sengupta of the HEF, Dr Kondap of Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Dr R Natrajan, Spiritual Guru Jaya Row - Vedanta, Professor YK Bhushan and Dr Indu Sahani - HR College, were the chief guests who felicitated the awardees.

Dr Salunkhe said, "Innovation is the basis of learning and real learning happens outside the classrooms. An institution should constantly strive to explore leadership elements in its teachers who are the driving force of that organisation. I am extremely honored by being associated with this profession of teaching from past several years."

Professor AK Sengupta, Founder, HEF, said, "It is very inspiring to witness how Dr Salunkhe has transformed Welingkar Institute into a globally vibrant institution. Right from the state-of-the-art infrastructure, quality teachers, student exchange programmes to innovative courses; Welinkar School has reached the stature of an institute having global excellence. We are inspired by the innovations brought about in teaching pedagogy by eminent teachers like Dr Salunkhe."
