The Vice-Chancellor is the academic and executive head of the University. The Vice-Chancellor provides both academic and administrative leadership. The Vice-Chancellor is appointed by the Chancellor on the recommendation of the Government. A search committee, consisting of nominees of the State Government, University and University Grants Commission prepares a panel of names, for the purpose. Based on this panel, the Government makes its selection. The Vice-Chancellor is appointed for a three year term and is eligible for reappointment for one more term.
The Vice-Chancellor is the Chairman of the Executive Council and Academic Senate. As such the Vice-Chancellor plays a pivotal role in formulating policies and taking major decisions - both academic and administrative. Although the Vice-Chancellor is empowered to take decisions by himself, yet the Vice-Chancellor very seldom exercises this option. The Vice-Chancellor is the appointing authority of all the officers of the University, including the heads of Departments, Chairmen of Boards of Studies, Principals etc. The Vice-Chancellor exercises control over the University's finances and keeps a watch on the performance of different academic and administrative wings. The reputation and image of the University broadly depends on the dynamism, vision and leadership provided by the Vice-Chancellor
The aim of education is to acquire knowledge, not only of facts, but of values.... As we move towards becoming a developed nation, the role of youth of the country, becomes increasingly important. We wish to be a cutting-edge university, to anticipate the needs of the future and meet them here and to create a physical environment that supports teaching, learning, and research. We realize that the rapid pace of development in the country has raised the expectations of the people from the institutions of higher learning. Educational institutes have to be instrumental in providing equal opportunities which is the trademark of participatory democracy and moving ahead to convert the trails of possibilities into highways of growth and development with commitment. With your continued earnest cooperation, I am confident that the University will achieve the highest score.
