It was attended by students and parents of the new batch, said a press release issued here.
Prof Shahasrabudhe said the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 is a transformative game changing policy, empowering every section of society in education with multiple entry and exit and with emphasis on co-curricular activities thereby creating value-based citizens.
Prof Prakash enlightened the students on the importance of excellence, prioritisation of interests, ethics, values and management of stress. He laid emphasis on the three mandatory traits of a student: being a lifelong learner, having inspiring dreams and learning the art of playing curved balls thrown by life.
Dr Pansari spoke to the students about the ethos of university – discipline and quality education – motivating them to be self-reliant, hardworking and focused on self-development.
Prof Singh said that man through ages, has conquered diseases and found a cure to handle any situation given by Nature or otherwise. Corona times have bolstered every human being to adapt and adjust themselves, from offline to online digital platforms for learning and not losing out on education, he added.
