'Let academicians be Syndicate members'

 
They also urged the Governor to make sure that the appointment of registrars and registrars (evaluation) are from the panels suggested by the Vice-Chancellors. This, they said, would ensure harmony in the administration. The recent appointment of registrars to Bangalore University and other varsities elsewhere in the State had generated a controversy after the concerned VCs tellingly demonstrated their unhappiness.

The VCs also wanted the varsities be given financial autonomy, and the autonomy to fill up faculty and non-teaching staff vacancies. The Governor, who is also the Chancellor of the State varsities, met the Vice-Chancellors of Bangalore, Mysore, Mangalore, Kuvempu, Gulbarga Women’s, Tumkur, Kannada, Open and Davangere universities at the Raj Bhavan.

He discussed various issues concerning the universities and the problems faced by them. He assured the VCs that he would do all that is in his capacity as Chancellor to redress them and endeavour to maintain the high standards of academic input. This, he said, was to bring the universities on par with the best in the country and even abroad.

Formally, the VCs declared that “we will relentlessly strive to promote excellence in Higher Education with inclusive policies and expansion.”
