Jammu, Nov 16: A two-day 'north zone Vice-Chancellors meet' commenced at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University (SMVDU) in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir, with Lt Governor G C Murmu calling for a paradigm shift from theoretical education to job-oriented higher education.
Murmu, who is also the Chancellor of SMVDU, inaugurated the meet at Kakriyal campus of the university, which was attended by 60 Vice-Chancellors and Directors of various institutions, members of University Grants Committee (UGC), All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) and other government organisations, an official spokesman said.
He said the meet was also attended by faculty members and students of SMVDU which organised it under the auspices of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).
In his inaugural address, the Lt Governor called upon Vice-Chancellors of all universities across the country to make concerted efforts in providing job-oriented higher education to the students making them future-ready.
Murmu observed that higher education institutions must introspect to bring reforms in their curriculum that would enable graduates to acquire the competencies required by employers or the skills required to be self-employed.
He outlined that the overall aim should be to improve universities through discussion to improve the quality of higher education and research.
