Staff Reporter

KODAIKANAL: Mother Teresa University has launched special programmes sponsored by the University Grants Commission to help students face future challenges, said D. Janaki, Vice-Chancellor of the university.

Inaugurating the courses on the university premises on Friday, she said that the courses were coaching for entry into services and remedial teaching for students belonging to economically backward and underprivileged community and minority community studying in the university and its constituent colleges in Kodaikanal.

The university has planned to motivate and prepare students to utilise the opportunities available in small-scale industries, Central and State Governments and Quasi-Government organisations.

Experts, professionals, professors and scholars from various disciplines would handle the classes.

Students would also be trained professionally to acquire knowledge and skills to make them choose a career of their choice as soon as they complete their college and university education.

These courses would not marginalise rural students but would promote their morale and confidence, she said. She also stressed the importance of rural empowerment of rural women.
