BDU convocation on December 9

The 37th convocation of Bharathidasan University will take place on December 9. Chancellor and Governor R.N. Ravi will preside over the ceremony.

Candidates who completed Ph.D. between October 2, 2019, and November 20, 2021, are to be awarded their doctorate degrees in person.

Minister for Higher Education K. Ponmudi will offer felicitations and P. Kanagasabapathi, Chairman (in-charge), Indian Council of Social Science Research, New Delhi, will deliver the convocation address.

The university has issued instructions to candidates to wear masks and adhere to all other COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures of the government at the convocation and rehearsal a day earlier.

The Principals of 27 affiliated colleges have been invited for an interaction with Governor at Bharathidasan University on December 8, a day before the convocation.

The Governor, according to university sources, has not specified any agenda for the discussion, but the authorities term the meeting a “simple interaction” for 15 minutes.

Mr. Ravi has also scheduled meetings with Syndicate members, students and NCC cadets, as he had been doing during his visits to the State universities for convocation in recent weeks.

According to a senior professor, there is less likelihood of the Principals or others discussing contentious issues due to fear of earning the displeasure of the Higher Education Department.
