Addressing the closing session of the Meet of Vice-Chancellors and Directors of Central Universities, Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research and Indian Institute of Science here on Tuesday,
President Ram Nath Kovind said, “Simple steps like strictly adhering to academic calendar for admissions, conduct of classes, examinations, declaration of results and awarding of degrees at convocations and so on can be the starting point on the journey towards excellence.”
“There are some steps that you can take to address the shortage of faculty in your universities. For instance, you can develop a robust visiting faculty program or use online teaching tools. You must also strengthen your existing faculty through leadership programs such as LEAP, that is now entering its second year,” Ram Nath Kovind said.
