The internal quality assurance cell (IQAC) and institute of distance education (IDE) of Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) jointly organized an orientation programme on Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion, RGU vice-chancellor Professor Saket Kushwaha said, “It is highly essential to expand our realms by making use of this orientation programme.”

“This should be used as a platform of disseminating information and for clearing certain doubts in order to avoid miscommunication and confusions,” he added.

“This is high time we all shed our differences and contribute for the overall growth of the university,” he further said.

“This will help in improving the university’s rankings- both in national and global level,” he added.

The VC also gave a clarion call for special focus on improvement in quality as well as quantitative outputs.

He further advocated for more committed efforts with dedication and sincerity and said the orientation programme will reap quality outputs.

University pro-vice-chancellor Professor Amitava Mitra in his speech disclosed that RGU has already applied for NAAC accreditation.

He hoped that the orientation programme will reduce the gap between RGU’s IQAC and various departments and institutes and will pave the way for a thorough evaluation of the varsity’s qualitative and quantitative matrixes.

Mitra also informed that the pre-academic audit exercise of the university is scheduled for February 27 and 28.

RGU registrar in-charge David Pertin said, “It was high time to eliminate the complexities and confusions looming around the revised format of NAAC.”

He urged the university fraternity to prepare for the assessments with a positive mindset for inclusive development and quality.

He hoped that the university would reach the academic heights and be counted amongst the best universities of the country.
