Become a ‘guru’ to inspire young minds: President to VCs

President Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday urged top academicians and Vice Chancellors of various universities in the country to act as a ‘guru’ in helping their students and create institutions which radiate as islands of excellence.

He also asked the Ministry of Human Resource Development to “take immediate action to fill up vacancies of VCs” in these institutions and urged that the selection of teaching staff must be completed within six months of appointment of Visitor’s nominees. The President told VCs that “they must act as gurus and guide scholars and students to achieve the highest standards of academic brilliance”.
