These were part of the suggestions made by Patnaik while interacting with the VCs of 11 public universities here.
Patnaik also urged them to elevate the varsities to higher levels of academic excellence.
For enhancing the reputation of the state public universities, I would suggest to maintain transparency in the recruitment of teachers, encourage teachers for research and publication, he said, adding that discipline must be maintained at any cost. Interference of outsiders in the varsity campuses must not be tolerated, he said, adding, non-students and unauthorised persons should not be allowed in the campuses.
The chief minister also said that results should be published on time and no delay should be tolerated from the next academic year. He also told the VCs to ensure quality education in the affiliated colleges. The vice-chancellors, senior officers and faculty members must make surprise visits to affiliated colleges from time to time. Make efforts to achieve higher NAAC rating and NIRF rankings in the coming cycle of assessment and ranking, he said.
The chief minister also assured the VCs that there will be no constraints of funds and the state government will support the universities in all possible ways. PTI AAM SBN SBN
