In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha yesterday presided over the closing ceremony of the year-long Golden Jubilee Celebrations of Jammu University. AIR correspondent reports that he inaugurated 11 infrastructure projects worth RS 43.91 crore at Main Campus and offsite campuses in Ramnagar, Reasi and Kathua.
Speaking on the occasion, the Lieutenant Governor lauded the University Administration for achieving A+ grade in the recent NAAC report, besides congratulating the students, faculty members and Vice Chancellor for the newly inaugurated infrastructure projects. Laying stress on the dynamics of contemporary education ecosystem, the LG said that Universities and colleges can no longer afford to produce ordinary students. Teachers will have to continuously evolve new mechanisms to enrich the syllabus and students will have to learn things beyond the prescribed curriculum.
The LG noted that as J&K prepares for a new Industrial Revolution, our educational institutes need to churn out skilled human capital commensurate with the demand of the industry.
