From the Desk of the Hon'ble Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof. (Dr) Ashis Kumar Panigrahi

Access to knowledge is the birth right of every individual. Education has always been considered as the greatest liberating force for individual. It is the key component of human development and considered as essential to all round development of the individual in material, mental and spiritual levels. Wider door for accessing to higher education is the important parameter for enhancement of human capabilities, which expand the freedom from all types of servitude which is the cornerstone of empowerment.
In this context, I would like to express that we are not only confined ourselves in disseminating facts, figures and information but also train the young brilliant minds to think beyond to unlock the new windows of intellects with rational thoughts and humanity. We are committed to organize the learners in a holistic manner to convert them to a full functioning ethical value-based individual who will be a responsible citizen with self respect and self dignity in the tune of Swamiji's Clarion "Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man". Considering this motto, I have devoted my lifelong (36 years) experiences in academic as well as administrative services for all- round development of this university till holding this post.
After joining as the Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University of Burdwan on the 02 nd June 2020, I am trying my level based with utmost sincerity for all-round development of this University. Finally, I would like to extend my well wishes to all the teachers, officers, staff members, scholars, students and all other stake holders of this University.
