JNU Convocation: PhD Degrees Awarded To Over 550 Scholars

New Delhi: More than 550 PhD degrees were awarded in the virtual convocation of the Jawaharlal Nehru University on Thursday. This was the varsity’s fifth annual convocation.

“Educational institutions such as JNU have a fundamental role in disseminating quality education and empower masses and youth to contribute to nation-building,” said union minister of education Dharmendra Pradhan, who was the chief guest.

“The fact that the university has been able to produce so many graduates at a time when not only India but the entire world is grappling with the ill-effects and the aftermath of the pandemic speaks volumes about the quality of effort that the research scholars and faculty members have put into their work,” vice-chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar said while addressing the students.

The education minister also said that the National Education Policy (NEP 2020) will help in transforming the education sector.

“Efforts have been made to provide holistic education to every child and youth in India. Based on the foundation of accessibility, affordability, equity and quality, this visionary document will assert to make the India that our ancestors and the great philosophers have dreamt of,” Pradhan said.
