Presidential speech on the occasion of 11th University Day National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) President Virender S. Chauhan gave it.

I applaud the JJU for carrying out its responsibilities towards the society.
Dr. Chauhan said, JJU has an impressive and hardworking faculty and on average it has started a new school every year, which is a remarkable achievement. University education frees you from things, you are given many options, you are made aware of your rights here and those of us who have had the privilege of studying in a good university, on the shoulder There is definitely some responsibility. Kovid-19 has revealed the protectionist policies of countries around the world, but the JGU’s pluralistic doctrine is an example of how universities should develop values that promote brotherhood and globalism. The JJU has set an example which other universities will follow.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Newman said, the presence of challenges before the old and their own ideas makes university education more important and the skills to think on important things are developed at JJU. Students would get to learn many such things here.
He further said, a university like JJU promotes solutions to solve socioeconomic challenges and plays an important role in improving the country’s education ecosystem. Students of JJU understand things such as climate crisis, public health, poverty, starvation, so JJU is part of an important education ecosystem that aims to meet global challenges.
