International universities accept it as their responsibility to mould character irrespective of the academic courses, he said. This requires a proper understanding of what education means, he said and added that the University Grants Commission has emphasised on including value education in the ninth plan.

Governor and RCUB Chancellor Vajubhai Vala presided over the ceremony. Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande, Vice Chancellor (acting) Dashrath Albal and other dignitaries were present.
