Media coverage of Assam University Diphu Campus, Diphu Assam, Assam
Foundation day of Assam UniversitySILCHAR, Jan 22 – The 18th foundation day of the Assam University was celebrated on Friday.
The flag of the university was hoisted by vice chancellor Prof Tapodhir Bhattacharjee. The former executive director of the RBI, RB Barman was present as the chief guest in the function. In this connection, a press meet was organised on the premises of the university. Dr Niranjan Roy, director, Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) along with GP Pandey, dean, Information Sciences, Debabrata Deb, Registrar, Prof Gopalji Misra, Dean of Social Sciences and Dibakar Kanungo, financial officer, were present.
Prof Bhattacharya, expressed his confidence that the deficiencies pointed out in the assessment report of the NAAC awarding B grade to the university would be eliminated as the university would try to qualify for the top slot as a centre of excellence. Unfolding the future plans, he spoke about increasing the use of ICTs in teaching, learning and research, internationalisation of courses and programmes, diversification of courses and programmes, strengthening the campus networking and introduction of e-governance.
The university, in its short but eventful existence of 18 years, has at present 34 departments under nine schools of studies in the main campus and departments in the satellite campus at Diphu College. As many as 58 colleges – 45 general and 11 professional — affiliated to it are part of the sustained academic growth. He further said that the immediate task was to consolidate quality enhancement measures for the academicdepartments in conformity with the NAAC guidelines.
Among the measures initiated, as Dr Niranjan Roy pointed out, was the introduction of a choice-based credit system in the departments to provide mobility and integration of inter-disciplinary curricula, establishment of an industry interaction centre as a statutory body with structured consultancy, initiation of school system in the departments to encourage inter-disciplinary interaction in teaching and research and optimal utilisation of infrastructure, holistic development of capacity-built students, more career-oriented postgraduate programmes like Library and Information Science, Interior Decoration as well as Human Resource Development.
Also on the academic advancement arena, the priority was accorded on the setting up of a state-of-the-art centralised instrumentation centre to provide round-the-clock academic service to researchers and faculty members, curriculum development to utilise structural methodology of feedback received from stakeholders and involvement of industry-management experts in the boards of studies, studentcareer guidance and counselling centre with trained psychologists and overall emphasis on quality sustenance and quality enhancement, Dr Roy said.
IntroductionCentre of learning: Assam University campus in Silchar
July 17: A small step by Silchar-based Assam University has become a giant leap for education in this geographically, socially and economically disadvantaged district.
South Assam's only university will open its first satellite campus in Diphu, the headquarters of Karbi Anglong, tomorrow, giving students in these parts the opportunity to continue higher studies from the comfort of their hometowns and villages.
Karbi and other tribal youths have so long had to travel to Guwahati, Shillong, Silchar or other Indian cities for higher studies. A campus at their doorstep not only means comfort but significantly less expenditure.
Assam University has added post-graduate studies in Assamese literature to its curriculum for the Diphu satellite campus. Tapodhir Bhattacharjee, the new vice-chancellor of the university, said he was happy to have fulfilled a demand that was not only raised by students but also the Asam Sahitya Sabha.
The road to fulfilment was, however, anything but smooth. The satellite campus was commissioned in 2001, but a series of hurdles delayed its completion. When the Karbi Anglong Autonomous District Council arranged for a 33-hectare plot of land for the campus, the university management specified more requirements, including a purified drinking water facility of 1.5 lakh-litre capacity, a two-lane approach road to the proposed site from the highway, a police outpost and a properly demarcated boundary.
Bhattacharjee said the teething problems were over and the autonomous council would make available another 379 acres at a site only eight km from Diphu town.
Apart from Assamese literature, the university intends to start employment-oriented courses in anthropology,statistics, and earth science during the 2008-09 academic session.
The vice-chancellor said he was confident that these 'challenging courses' would attract students not only from Assam but across the six other states of the Northeast. 'Our ultimate goal is to make the Diphu campus a fraternity of different linguistic and racial groups.'
The main Assam University campus is at Dargakona, a picture-perfect spot 18 km from Silchar town. Former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao laid the institution's foundation stone in January 1994.
The Dargakona campus has infrastructure of the highest quality and offers as many as 28 courses.
The classrooms, administrative building, library, computer laboratory, hostels and residential quarters for the faculty were all built with central grants under the 10th Plan.
The new vice-chancellor said he expected all the required infrastructure for the satellite campus to be in place within the next three years.
