The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is encouraging reforms in the higher education sector.
They are trying to meet the requirements of industry, skill institutes and are making curriculums flexible.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha addressed the inaugural session of the Round Table Conference with newly appointed Vice Chancellors from various universities of the country at the University of Kashmir.
He underlined the need for the Universities to adjust to the change and meet future challenges.
The pace of change in every sector is faster than before. The biggest transformational revolution is required in the University Campus.
To remain relevant in the future, Universities will have to function like a Professional Corporation in which each department, unit, and teacher play their crucial role as a separate part and form a complete organic mechanism.
Innovation and entrepreneurship cannot be taught through books. Arrangements should be made that students are involved in field learning every week.
Prof. Dinesh Singh, Vice Chairman, J&K Higher Education Council, in his address, shared the ongoing transformation in the higher education sector in Jammu Kashmir.
Dr Pankaj Mittal, Secretary General, Association of Indian University highlighted the endeavours of AIU for enhancing the engagement of universities and teachers in reforming the education system in the country.
