Prof Podile Appa Rao, vice chancellor of Hyderabad central university has appealed to all the students and students to extend the cooperation to enhance the reputation of the varsity. In an appeal posted on the website of the varisty, he said student’s academic growth is the prime focus. He made this appeal following the ruckus over his resuming work at the varsity after going on leave for two months. This is the appeal he made:
As you might already be aware from media reports, the University is passing through difficult times. The University was and will always be committed to freedom of speech and expression. While difference of opinion and dissent is not discouraged, the University certainly does not take kindly to vandalism and other acts of indiscipline. The current semester is drawing to a close and end-semester examinations will begin soon. Afterwards several students will graduate
and step out into the world in search of a meaningful life. The University seeks co-operation of parents, and students in particular, in the smooth functioning of the university.
The University has set up mechanisms for grievance redressal at all stages of administration. We request you to please remain in touch with your ward and encourage them to seek redressal through those mechanisms, should they need it, at their respective Department/School.
The students should feel free to approach their mentees/ Heads to talk to them about any anxieties or problems.
The University administration seeks your kind co-operation and requests you to advise your ward to avoid any activity that will affect the reputation of the institution from which they wish to graduate.
We wish to reassure the parents that the University will always be for students and will not shirk its responsibility towards them.
