ANU to be developed into a model university

Human resources Minister Ghanta Srinivasa Rao on Saturday said Acharya Nagarjuna University will be developed into a model university in the State.

The ANU, located between Guntur and Vijayawada and within the Capital region, would be developed as a centre of excellence, the Minister told reporters after a review with senior officials.

The Minister said vice-chancellor B. Udyalakshmi has already taken a slew of measures to instil confidence among students and a sense of accountability among the staff.

“The university has 4,649 students enrolled in seven campus colleges and 1,517 research scholars and all their admission records have been computerised. We have a complete data base of all teaching and non teaching staff and all of them have been provided with an office mail id. We have also installed 60 CCTV cameras with digital video recording facility on the university premises. We are also installing bio metric attendance system for students, teaching and non teaching staff,’’ the V-C said.

A survey conducted recently among the students revealed that they were apprehensive about the role of caste unions and wanted them to be disbanded. The students also sought Wi-Fi facility on the campus, she said.

Later, the Minister along with senior officials visited the women’s hostel and enquired about the facilities.
