Mohanlal Sukhadia University, Udaipur is hosting the West Zone Vice Chancellors’ Conference on July 29-30, 2011.

More than sixty Vice Chancellors from different universities of the region will be attending the two days conference to discuss on critical issues pertaining to excellence,equality and access of higher education.

The Conference is being organized under the auspices of the Association of Indian Universities, New Delhi.

The theme of the Conference is “Higher Education in India: A Perennial Quest for Excellence”.

 

West Zone Vice Chancellors Conference from July 29The Conference will focus on access to higher education in the tribal belt of Western India. A number of universities in the states of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh are located in areas which have a sizeable population of Scheduled Tribes.

These areas suffer from poor enrollment ratio and inadequate state support. There is a disinclination on the part of well qualified teachers to seek jobs in these institutions. Merciless growth of private colleges may have led to an increase in the intake of students but as always at the cost of excellence.

The Conference will provide ample opportunity to the educational satraps to reflect upon these challenges.
