Lt Guv Manoj Sinha addressed the foundation day celebration of Cluster University, Jammu
The University was set up on 1st March 2017 with five Constituent Colleges to act as a change agent, focus on skill development and transform the vibrant institutions as centers of new ideas and discoveries.
In a new era, the education system and role of a teacher needs to adapt to fast-changing world. Teacher is not just a disseminator of knowledge. A teacher is the one who imparts different skill sets, ignites creativity, innovation in young generation to live a better life.
The new invention will not be born out of memories of the past or books, but from a free mind, from a young mind full of curiosity. To make the curiosity, innovation, invention, lifeblood of academic institutions, we must implement recommendations of national education policy.
We must remove burden of textbooks & instill in young students urge for new discoveries. We must give them courage & strength to explore unknown and not just syllabus. We should provide them with academic freedom so they get to know themselves and respect their own uniqueness.
