The Public Notice issued by the UGC.
This is for the information of all students that as per our earlier communication, summer vacations for the students was declared upto May 05, 2020 and the University academic activities will be started from May 06, 2020 but in view of the current lockdown situation in the country, University has decided to resume the session from May 04, 2020 in virtual/online mode . The sessional examinations will also be conducted through online mode thereafter and the detail schedule will be intimated by the respective Dean.
The University will continue to work in virtual/online mode and physical reporting to the University will be communicated later as per the direction of the Government of India/UGC/Government of Punjab.
In Pandemic times, the best effort is to come together and display a gesture of solidarity. As India fights COVID 19, Chitkara University Administration, Faculty and Support Staff have come together to participate in the cause by donating their one day salary to PM Cares Fund, Punjab Chief Minister Relief Fund and Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Relief Fund.
With the Corona Virus Outbreak, 22 countries globally are in complete lockdown, while 90 other countries have partial lockdown to arrest the rapid spread of the virus. With the preventive measures as the only weapon, India has displayed a great spirit in fighting against Corona Virus. Timely actions ensured we do not have a rapid spread. Chitkara University joins the nation’s cause by spreading awareness, keeping the campuses clean and by practising social distancing.
Chitkara University salutes the doctors, medical staff and non-medical staffs who are working round the clock to keep us safe. International medical journals are also recognizing the efforts of India’s fight against the coronavirus. Chitkara University also appreciates the spirit of the common man during the lockdown for showcasing the highest levels of discipline.
On the occasion, Mr. Ashok Chitkara, Chancellor at Chitkara University said, “We are going through the toughest part that our generation has not witnessed earlier. We need to stand united and work hard towards restoring things to normal. The governments are doing their role to perfection. I would like to thank all the Chitkara University staff for rising to the occasion and contributing to the nation’s cause. All of us at Chitkara University hope the situation comes to control at the earliest across the country.”
These are extraordinary times and I sincerely hope you and your loved ones are doing well and keeping safe.
As you would be aware, we decided to transition to remote learning from 3rd week of March in keeping with our goal to minimize the number of interactions on campus, slow the rate of transmission, and protect our community. We thank you once again for your continued support during these most difficult of circumstances and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
We understand there were personal, logistical, and financial challenges to these extraordinary measures. And we would really like to applaud each and every one of you for standing up during that time of chaos and keeping the momentum for teaching and learning going during that time. It was really a big learning curve for all of us at the University and we came out with flying colours all because of your commitment and hard work. We really cannot thank you enough for coming together as one family and riding through that initial transition period.
Our students, their well-being and their progression in future stages of life should continue to be at the forefront of our thinking as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping up with the academic disruption since last month, we have decided to prepone the annual 2 weeks Summer Vacation and the same will be starting now on April 4th and continue till April 19th (subject to change due to rapidly changing environment).
Students too have been given summer vacation from April 4th through May 4th. Hopefully, they can be present on campus from May 5th unless there is any further change in circumstances in the interim.
During this lockdown and subsequent summer break, you are requested to work on NAAC data if required. There is also a great opportunity to increase and consolidate your research publications.
I realize one is inundated with depressing news and messages from all quarters these days and it is hard to remain positive in its midst. But let us not get so lost in all the negative thoughts that we forget to count our blessings and lose our optimism. Let us feed our faith instead of watering our fears. Fear is a weak energy; it is faith that turns tides and brings about miracles. God is kind and there are boundless reasons to be full of hope EVEN now! He is looking out for all of us. Look around and you’ll find enough evidence of His love.
So, please be safe, make the most of this time at home with your loved ones and stay strong! It may be a little stormy now, but it can’t rain forever. Things will get better and this too shall pass.
MAY GOD BLESS US ALL ,
Dr. Ashok K Chitkara
