Profile of Vice-Chancellor Achyutanand Mishra
Welcome to Makhanlal Chaturvedi Rashtriya Patrakarita Avam Sanchar Vishwavidyalaya (MCU). MCU is the Asia's First University, exclusively dedicated to Journalism and Communication fields. The University's main campus is located at Bhopal. Two other campuses are at Noida (Near New Delhi) and Khandwa. MCU's mission is to participate in the discovery, transmission and preservation of knowledge and to stimulate the intellectual life, economic and cultural development of India through providing the best human resources in the field of journalism, mass communication and other allied subjects. The University is committed to preparing its students to work, acquire skills and enlarge their capacities that equip them adequately to live in rapidly changing global environment. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and research across the broad range of disciplines offered at graduate & PG levels. The students of this University have not only shown their abilities and competence within the country but some of them are also shining abroad as well. Throughout its history, the University has provided a wide range of higher education with a commitment to excellence in teaching, learning and research which is responsive to regional and national needs. We believe that students, wherever they are studying, are the reason for our existence. We also believe that professional care for students is part of the responsibility of a University that claims to provide students with a reasonable chance of success in their studies. During the year, the curriculum of Media subjects has been revised with a view to up-grade and up-date the course contents of various courses. Our prestigious Research Project 'Indian Language Journalism in Independent India' has made further head-way in the year 2008. After publication of eight Volumes of the Research Project during the year 2007, six manuscripts have been given to the Publishers which will be published shortly. It is expected that during the year 2009, another 20 books will be published under this Research Project. During the year 2008, the University has acquired 50 acres of land for its new campus from the State Government. Lease Deed has been executed in favour of the University and possession has been taken. It is hoped that the construction on the new site will be started sometime during the year 2009. We are committed to provide quality journalism to future media persons who are ready to join Mass Communication to Corporate Communication. I am confident that with the help of our highly creative faculty members, media professionals in the country and the senior media academicians, this University will be able to serve the aspirations of our students, media industry and associated institutions(for Media Courses) throughout the country, working under our umbrella. At the behest of Press Council of India, this University has been entrusted to work as a Nodal Agency to prepare a draft of model curriculum to standardize the media education.
The University is also bringing out a quarterly magazine 'Media Meemansa' to reflect about issues that pertain to interface between media and society. So far six issues of Media Meemansa have been brought out and this initiative has acquired phenomenal success in getting appreciation of media professionals, academic community and enlightened readers.
There has been further increase in the number of students in the associate Institutes during the year. However, to keep the student strength within the manageable limit and to ensure quality education and examination, the University is constrained to put restrictions on association of new Computer/IT institutes and bar sanction of additional courses/additional seats at some places where the number of student has become too large. It is hoped that the Institutes and others will bear with us in this matter. We welcome feedback from students and teachers (at UTD or from its associated study centres) on any issues that affect their ability to be successful at the University. Students who have problems associated with their academic progress should, in the first instance, consult their Coordinators within the Faculty (at the UTD and to the centre in-charge at the associated study centre) in which they are enrolled. If necessary, problems should be brought to the attention of the Head of Department or, through proper channels, to the Rector and to me. I wish all students well in their studies, and I am confident that the time spent at MCU can lay the foundation for professional and personal satisfaction. Your undergraduate or postgraduate program will be only part of a life-long learning experience. MCU through its commitment to providing flexible learning opportunities can be part of that life-long process and I encourage you to retain your contacts with us and to make use of us as a natural part of your ongoing personal and professional development.
