New Delhi: Dr BR Ambedkar University conducted its first faculty development programme on the pandemic to discuss the short-term and long-term implications of Covid-19 on human society.
The closing ceremony of the programme, conducted by the Outreach and Extension Division of the university, was held at its Kashmere Gate complex here on Friday. Padma Shri awardee, 2021, and president of Shaheed Bhagat Singh Seva Dal Dr Jitender Singh Shunty was the chief guest of the event.
"Service to people and communities has been the main theme of the entire programme, and Dr Shunty and his organisation have played a lead role in serving society during a crisis," the university stated.
Vice-chancellor Anu Singh Lather, who presided over the event, said the programme's aim was to bring together various professionals to share their experiences during the pandemic, listen to experts and understand the ways in which they had to improvise on their professions due to the Covid-19 imposed lockdown.
Recently, the Student’s Federation of India (SFI) said that the BR Ambedkar University Delhi administration had disrupted a 'peace march' organized by SFI. In response to the allegation, the BR Ambedkar University Delhi administration said though it is not against peace march or protest, it cannot tolerate the presence of outsiders in the SFI's march, and hence it had to be discontinued as a preventive measure.
