There is special focus on higher education in Jammu and Kashmir especially at the University level.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha addressed the inaugural session of the Round Table Conference with newly appointed Vice Chancellors from various universities of the country at the University of Kashmir.
He appreciated the endeavour of the Association of Indian Universities to bring together the Vice Chancellors on a common platform to deliberate on University Governance, Collaboration and promoting innovation in the academic world.
Higher education institutions across the world are undergoing radical transformations. The Universities and colleges will have to formulate a strategic plan, organizational readiness for adjustments aligned with NEP 2020 to stay relevant in a constantly evolving world.
Educating in India should be our aim and we need to increase our share in the multi-trillion dollar global education sector. Institutions with aspirational and shared vision should focus to improve ranking. It should be our top priority and we must take bold action to achieve this goal.
We are witnessing a massive growth in demand for higher education. In 10-15 years, India has contributed 74% of all new higher education institutions in the world. We need to ensure quality of studies to provide new tools to students to face the changes and challenges.
