'Private universities might be threat to state varsities'

Mysore: Nov 4, 2012 DH News Service 0:47 IST

UoM urged to suggest new model for affiliation based on experience

National Assessment and Accreditation Council, Bangalore, director Prof H A Ranganath stressed on the importance of strengthening State universities and affiliated undergraduate colleges as many private universities would be a part of education system in near future.

He was speaking at the inauguration of workshop on ‘re-visiting affiliating system and UGC schemes for development of higher education,’ organised by College Developmental Council (CDC) of University of Mysore.

He said: Within next year many private universities will come to existence possessing better infrastructure and investment posing a threat and also competing with the state universities. He said these varsities which do not have responsibilities of affiliated colleges would concentrate on providing best postgraduate education.

Therefore there is a need for the state universities to empower their affiliated college quality along with proving appropriate leadership.

Dwelling upon University of Mysore, he insisted on the varsity to suggest a new model for affiliation refering to its experience and only then its existence would be justified. It could provide new ideas in the field of education system.

Ranganath stressed upon providing more authority to CDCs. They should assume role of policy making body for development of colleges. “Presently it is operated as a head post office by sending letters to varsities and colleges but the role should be changed.”
‘CDC handbook-2012’ was launched on the occasion.

Vice chancellor of University of Mysore V G Talwar, deputy secretary and UGC regional head N Gopukumar, former vice chancellors of Kuvempu University P Venkataramaiah and K Chidananda Gowda, director of College Development Council Lingaraja Gandhi and others were present.
