Last Month U.G.C.’s team
visited the University to scrutinize our development proposals under 11th
five year plan It is a matter of great satisfaction that the committee
appreciated various reforms undertaken by the University in the different
areas, especially the experiments the University had made in the examination
system Shivaji University has been holding the examinations in time and also
declaring the results in time.
There are numerous changes in the education
system because rapid social and economic changes demand similar changes in the
teaching and learning process because it is the responsibility of education
system to provide trained man power to the society. Today’s world is a
competitive world and we have to make extra efforts to prove ourselves worthy
in the competition, The University is alive to the problem, hence it has
introduced semester system in with continuous internal assessment and credit
system. It is now responsibility of the teachers and students of the
University to faithfully implement the scheme because if it is implemented in
to students would be greatly benefited.
The University is trying to expand the activities
of the Centre of Distance Education as its activities has evoked good
response. We are starting many new courses in the faculty of Commerce and
Management in distance mode. Distance Education is a useful method of
providing education to these students who can’t take admission to the regular
courses of the university. The Centre has prepared a large number of test
books under the scheme of self instructional material; which may be useful to
the general students as well.
The University has recently
published a book entitled, “Shivaji University: Innovation and change” which
graphically describes new initiatives and programs launched by the University
during the past four years. It will be beneficial to the students and the
teachers of the University to go through the book.
