Discussions On The 4Year Degree Prgm
This is an factious issue where it allows student to leave with an associate degree after 2years or 3years. A meeting was held in order to create a "Vision Document" for a system that is set to replace the current one in a few months, where feasibility of proposals were discussed and some fears plaguing the teaching community weer also composed.

Virender Bhardwaj, a member of the academic council and the task-force says "University authorities have assured us that the honours courses will not be diluted. The group was considering a system in which, after the first year (i.e. 2 semesters, students would have the option of either continuing in a traditional honours course or taking up a more Skill-based one".

One of the member of the pannel said "Members proposed that if a college is strong in a particular discipline, it should be allowed to float a paper on that". He gave the example of animal science, which includes papers on both parasites and immunology. "But, is the college has faculty which has done research on the relationship between the two, the college can offer a paper on 'Parasitology and immunology", he added.

However, we are exploring ways in which such a paper, taught in one college can be taken up by students of other colleges. The teaching staff as well as the students would have greater opportunity for research and therefore, the post of professorship can be introduced at the college level. Till date the highest designation has been only 'assistant professorship'; he added.

This meeting also included the issues on problems faced in the existing system, courses and their duration that does'nt square with the semester system and internal assessment problems.
