Addressing the college principals, Dr R.M. Pant said that enhancement of capacity and qualification of teachers should be a necessary focus of all colleges. “Academic institutions have to be more relevant, dynamic and pro-active in the fast changing scenario. Their adaptability will ensure their survival and growth in future. North East which is trying hard to make its mark in the education map of the country needs to avoid complacency with just quantity or number of institutions it has but will have to ensure good quality in its institutions. That only will enable them to create a place for themselves in the arena which is already crowded with established players”, he said.

Emphasising on capacity building, he said that principals should focus on grooming of teachers so that they can deliver well. Principals should also connect with the parents and involve them in the overall development of students. He appealed to all the principals to take more responsibilities as heads of institutions and urged for their cooperation for the betterment of the university as a whole.

Earlier, welcoming the chief guest and the participating college principals, Shri Mahbubul Hoque, Chancellor of USTM and Chairman of ERDF said that USTM has lot of expertise in different fields of education and the university has come over to support the endeavours of all the colleges for any kind of academic progress.

The talk was followed by an interactive session on the topic “Roadmap of Assam University Silchar for next five years”. The views and suggestions of the participating college principals were taken for the purpose. The vote of thanks was delivered by Prof. Bibhash Dev, Academic Advisor, ERDF. The programme concluded with distribution of certificates to the participating College Principals.
