VIDYA PARISHAD, touted as the largest higher academic conclave in the City, will hear some important matters that will be presented for approval by the university. The meeting will take place at the RNT Marg auditorium of the Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya (DAVV) on October 10.
DAVV acting Vice Chancellor (V-C) Dr Rajkamal said that three important agendas would be presented for sanctioning by the university in the meeting that would be attended by over a hundred academicians including heads of departments, deans and readers.
The most important issue concerns granting honorary doctorate by the university to seven renowned personalities of the country. The proposal had been drawn up at a recent meeting of the Executive Committee (EC) and presented by Dr Rajkamal to the Chancellor and Governor Dr Balram Jakhar.
A committee sent by the Chancellor recently gave its approval and the matter will now be presented at this forum after which it will be presented at the EC meeting, scheduled on October 11 for final approval.
In a bid to find better student friendly models, the university had sent its employees to other equivalent places in the country. The fact-finding group had discovered an innovative method employed by Andhra and Chennai Universities for awarding computerized degrees. This method, if employed, would solve the problem of nearly 35000 degrees lying pending with the university since 2001. If the Vidya Parishad accords its approval, the said method would be adopted for use within a month.
The matter of giving affiliation to colleges for conducting B Ed courses will also be presented before the Vidya Parishad. During the annual general body meet of the Parishad, the proposals drafted by it’s permanent committee during their meetings held every month, will also be finalized. All the matters pertaining to the university, after getting clearance here, will finally be presented at the EC meet.
