The essence of the new education system in Kannada
Prof. Karunakar A. Kotekar's "National Education Policy - 2020" video series is an attempt to deliver the NEP - 2020 to the masses in Kannada. A total of 27 videos have already been created over a 5-hour period via the YouTube channel “NEP- 2020 Awareness and Implementation” (https://mangaloreuniversity.ac.in/nep ). Efforts have been made to simplify the new education policy and deliver it to the people.
R Sathyanarayana, Director, Kaiga Nuclear Power Plant, strongly opined that multidisciplinary education system and the contribution of old students will help Mangalore University achieve its Vision -2030. "It is important to recognize short-term courses, provide students with on-the-job skills, industry-government relations, global perspectives, and provide universities with the education they need throughout life," he said.
In his presidential address, Mangalore University Vice-Chancellor Prof P Subramanya Yadapadithaya said that the university has the potential to achieve more with the cooperation of society. “Environmentally friendly, the paperless campus is our priority. Already 5 villages and 10 government schools have been adopted by the university. Nine syndicate subcommittees have been formed for the draft on the implementation of NEP. The state-of-the-art Examination Block will be inaugurated by June. Preparation for the NAAC team visit, launch of mid-day meal scheme for eligible students, 400-metre Synthetic Track, Swimming Pool, Ambedkar Research Centre, Establishment of 5 PG Centres at Belapu of Udupi, V.S Acharya Centre for Coastal Development and different other study chairs will be implemented in the near future. We are also going to start Student Adalat, and ‘Wall of Kindness’ in the campus,” he added.
We know who writes the letter!
While Mangalore University is involved in the fight against Covid, many are busy in writing letters to the university. We know who writes and who makes them to write. But, if there are 20% of these people, then the remaining 80% will work. However, this is a time for introspection for such people. Inspite of writing letters, they may join hands in the development of the University, said VC P Subrahmanya Yadapadithaya without mentioning a name!
