On Tuesday, Delhi University announced that it will conduct the convocation ceremony for graduates of 2019-20 on February 27, in a blended format-that is both virtually and in person.
During a press conference, the announcement was made to highlight the achievements of the university ever since acting Chancellor PC Joshi took over. Joshi took over the administration from vice-chancellor Yogesh K Tyagi who was suspended on the accusation of dereliction and misconduct of duty.
Joshi said that on February 27, there will be a mixed offline and online convocation. Degrees will be awarded to the postgraduate students who completed their course in 2019-20 along with the Ph.D. and MPhil scholars who also completed their course in the same year.
It was announced by the acting VC that Delhi University will be launching an academic cooperative system soon. Joshi said that the Vidya Vistar Scheme will be launched between DU departments, and colleges, and remote Indian universities. DU has proposed to make available its faculties, academic facilities, and library to the partnering institutions for academic collaboration and cooperation through the initiative taken by the varsity. Already, the V2 scheme has started and letters have been sent to all departments and colleges.
He also said that they were talking about all their online resources for then. They will see if they can invite researchers to their campus and share their labs and other facilities with them in the coming years. Another initiative called DU encyclopedia was also launched by the Acting VC. It will be launched from this year on to mark the 100th anniversary of DU. He said that they were constituted a committee that will be involved with the 100-year history of DU as well as work on the DU Encyclopedia. They are not aware of the many people who have passed out of DU since they were not working in the direction.
