Prof. Appa Rao Podile, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hyderabad (UoH) was in for a pleasant surprise when he visited the Mizoram University. Few Alumni of the University of Hyderabad who are regular/guest faculty at the University there interacted with the Vice-Chancellor and had first hand information on the developments taking place at UoH.
Quite a few of the University Alumni are also working in the administration wing of Mizoram University. All the Alumni there have formed an association which is doing their best to promote UoH in Mizoram and surrounding areas. They are translating UoH admission notification to their language and printing in newspapers, reaching out to colleges and also advertising on TV. They have a strong desire to see that the UoH finds ways to promote research collaboration with Mizoram University.
During the interaction at Aizawl, Prof Appa Rao Podile called upon the UoH Alumni at Mizoram to be part of the development of the University in its journey from Excellence to Eminence. He has requested all members of UoH Alumni association at Mizoram University to register online with the University Alumni group.
