GUWAHATI, July 3: Governor Gulab Chand Kataria addressing the conclave of Vice Chancellors (VCs) of private universities of the state at Raj Bhavan here on Monday, said that private universities across the country are playing their part not only for the growth of the country but also for higher education. He also expressed his sincere gratitude to the private universities for contributing generously to the development of higher education in Assam. He further said, “Education plays a crucial role in training our youth for the progress of the country and private universities are playing the role of catalyst and contributing along with government universities to the development of higher education”.

The Governor pointed to the international reputation of ancient Indian colleges such as Nalanda and Takshashila, which grew to prominence not via government interference but through societal contributions. “The goal of institutions should be to provide students with a holistic education in order to help them become better individuals.” “Our students should be able to compete globally,” he continued, highlighting the importance of periodic curriculum reviews in order to keep higher education relevant at all times.

The Governor also said that the universities should prioritise the creation of a well-defined 10-year roadmap that fosters a focused vision for development of higher education. This roadmap should encompass a diverse range of talent forms, including literature, singing, yoga, language, folklore, philosophy, vastu, sports etc. By intertwining ancient Indian knowledge with contemporary Indian knowledge, these talent forms can be interconnected in a way that promotes the overall well-being and advancement of society. Through such an approach, universities can effectively contribute to the holistic development and growth of individuals, as well as the broader community.

The Governor also pointed out that there should be an interchange of different department programmes and the best of faculty members should provide in-service training. Inter-university tournaments and activities should be conducted to build confidence amongst the students. Each university should be given the responsibility of mentoring for the improvement of certain colleges. The motto of every university should be to enable students to make their own place.
