The 20th Foundation Day of Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology, Hisar, was celebrated at Chaudhary Ranbir Singh auditorium, where several former vice-chancellors were guests of honour.
The programme was presided over by vice-chancellor Radhey Shyam Sharma in the presence of his predecessors Vishnu Bhagwan, Raj Roop Fuliya, Devender Dayal Singh Sandhu and Muni Lal Ranga. A booklet named as “Reminiscences” that spoke of the momentum of academic growth and development in the university from 1995 to 2014 was released on the occasion.
Sharma expressed his happiness over the fast growth of the university. The research culture of the university is evident from its H-Index, which is 49 at this moment and more than 3,000 research papers have been published by the faculty in journals of repute, he said.
Former vice-chancellor Vishnu Bhagwan expressed satisfaction over fast growth and development of infrastructure on the campus and that, too, keeping into mind the landscaping, gardening and overall greenery that has lead to “Green Campus Award” to the university located in desert geography.
Devender Dayal Singh Sandhu said the commitment among the faculty and supporting staff in this university has lead to creation and sustenance of a research culture, which is essential for the development and growth of academia in an institution of higher learning.
Muni Lal Ranga, who relinquished the charge of vice-chancellor a couple of months ago, called upon the teaching and non-teaching fraternity of the university to continue to work together for achieving further excellence for the university. Raj Roop Fuliya also spoke on the occasion.
