Universities cannot and should not remain the proverbial ivory towers : Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu

Tweeted by @VPSecretariat
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today said that universities cannot and should not remain the proverbial ivory towers. He said this, while addressing the graduates to whom he conferred the degrees at the convocation ceremony organized by Pondicherry University today. Mr Naidu also said that universities are institutions that expand the universe of knowledge. They are Vishwa Vidyalayas which create, connect and transmit knowledge across generations, across geographies, he added.
 
Mr Naidu said, the knowledge is not fragmented but composite, integrated and connected with life. The graduates must be intimately connected with the social life of the people. Academics must be rooted in the socio-economic context but must flower and spread the fragrance of knowledge across the globe.  He also lauded the Lt. Governor of Puducherry and Chief Rector of Pondicherry University Dr Kiran Bedi for launching the President of India’s new Project, From Corporate Social Responsibility to University Social Responsibility in July 2018.
 
The Vice President was received by Lt. Governor of Puducherry Dr Kiran Bedi, Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy at the airport.
