I am really thankful for the overwhelming response to my blog. I received several emails, calls giving valuable suggestions regarding the “Strategic Roadmap of Central University of Rajasthan”. I am in a process of preparing a consolidated write-up in the form of “Concept Paper”. The paper will be posted on the blog for more suggestions.
Meanwhile, I have drafted the Vision, Mission, Goals, Objectives and Quality Statement for the Central University of Rajasthan. I once again request all the stakeholders to go through the same and post their views.
