Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar today visited Lovely Professional University(LPU) at its Management Conclave-2017 and Annual Honouring Ceremony to award its outstanding staff and students, a statement issued by the LPU said.
"With strong diversity at its campus, LPU is a global university. Learning at such a university is indeed a basic and real learning rather than mere subject learning. I feel that only that country prospers in the world where its universities prosper. Education is empowerment and it brings great transformation in life, society and everything," union minister was quoted saying in the statement.
"Our government is also working on public-private partnerships, where competition and collaboration between the two will certainly bring out the best of India. We feel, whether government or private, only good institutions will flourish and bad will go. More an institution will be good, more autonomy it will have. Survive through competition and that is only the 21st Century India."
About new education policy, the minister said: "The new education policy rests on 5 pillars-Accessibility, Quality, Equity, Accountability and Affordability. We are striving to make all education systems, prevalent in the country, clean and transparent."
During annual honouring ceremony, the minister awarded illustrious members of staff and students with Rs 20 Lakh and rolls of honour. For this, 6 LPU researchers, 20 students for their 10 pointer CGPA in their respective programmes, one international shooter, 20 national sports persons and 40 students for their excellences in different fields of cultural activities were honoured.
