Smriti Irani expected to grace KU convocation in Feb


Jamshedpur : Union HRD minister Smriti Irani would be the chief guest of the second convocation ceremony of Kolhan University.

The administration is gearing up to organise the ceremony in the first week of Feb. The second convocation of the varsity will see the felicitation of 43 toppers from different disciplines. The university officials are inviting Irani to grace the function.

Along with the 43 toppers, about 11,114 pass outs of various vocational courses and UG, PG and B Ed, will receive their respective degrees at the function.

It may be noted that the university has been carved out of Ranchi University with 25 colleges under its jurisdiction. Colleges Principals and educationalists in city have expressed happiness over the move and expressed hopes that the scenario of higher education in the rural belt would improve.

The university that was established in 2009 runs 25 colleges, which include 14 constituent colleges, eight affiliated colleges and two minority ones. The Jamshedpur Women’s College is the lone autonomous cradle of the university.

Though in the last three years of its journey, the university has achieved some credibility, a lot more needs to be done in the years to come. It has failed to conduct students’ union elections so far.
