A seven-member team of Harvard University called on Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh at his office chamber in Imphal on Friday. 

The team led by Dominic Mao, PhD (Lecturer, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard) had a candid interaction with the chief minister during the meeting.  

Dominic Mao was raised  in Imphal before he moved  to the US to pursue PhD in 2007. 

The team is in the state to conduct Harvard’s Program for Scientifically Inspired Leadership (PSIL) at St Paul’s Retreat House, Mantripukhri in Imphal from January 14 to 18. 

PSIL brings together three separate groups of students to create the PSIL community comprising Harvard Undergraduates, prospective teachers in the state of Manipur and high school students from various schools in Manipur. 

While high school students are developing leadership skills, Harvard undergraduates and prospective teachers from Manipur are learning how to be effective teachers. 

By interacting with one another, all three groups will gain a deeper understanding of teaching and learning as well as expand their worldviews as they share experiences with people from many different backgrounds. 

An important component of the program is cultural immersion, where the Harvard team will learn about the history and culture of Manipur by visiting various sites with the teaching team from Manipur.

While interacting with the team, Biren Singh highlighted to the team from Harvard about the state’s salubrious climate and unique flora and fauna including rare Sangai and largest freshwater lake in the Northeast, Loktak. 

He also invited the team to the 5th Statehood Women’s (International) Polo Tournament underway at Mapal Kangjeibung.
