CM congratulates JU for making it to country’s top autonomous institutions
JAMMU, MARCH 21: Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti has congratulated the Jammu University (JU) for making it to the top 60 academic institutions in the country which were granted autonomous status by the HRD Ministry yesterday.
“This reflects the struggle for excellence by the teachers, administration and students of the University equally”, the Chief Minister said while hoping that the University would compete with the best in the country in coming days and years. She said her Government, ever since it came to power, has accorded top priority to the consolidation of educational infrastructure in the State coupled with a much more liberalised regime at the institutes of higher learning with focus on linking quality with autonomy.
Mehbooba Mufti, who is also the Pro Chancellor of the University, hoped that after attaining such a feat the University would be able to attract more specialized talent and resources, start new job driven courses and enter into academic collaborations so that it emerges as a hub of knowledge and academia in the State and the region.
