As part of its silver jubilee celebrations, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIP University or IP-University) has decided to give a “one-time chance” to students who could not complete their degrees in the last 25 years, its vice-chancellor said on Wednesday.
The university held a press conference here earlier in the day, during which Vice Chancellor Mahesh Verma shared information about several events being organized from October 5-10 as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations.
Later, speaking to PTI, he also shared that GGSIPU (IP-University) will “honour 25 research scholars” working in the field of healthcare. He said the silver jubilee celebrations began last December and will continue till December this year.
During this jubilee period, the University is not only focusing on academic efforts but also recognizing excellence in health care.
“As part of the ongoing silver jubilee celebrations of the university, we will give a one-time opportunity to those students who could not complete their degree in the last 25 years due to various reasons,” Verma told PTI.
This initiative reflects the university’s commitment to supporting academic activities and providing opportunities for academic achievement, he said.
Last year, Delhi University, which turns 100 in 2022, announced a “centenary” opportunity for students who could not complete their degrees for some reason to return to the university and take their exams.
People living in Delhi and neighboring cities can come for free health check-up, attend talks by experts and get medical tests done during the ‘Health Mela’ being organized by the university at Talkatora Indoor Stadium from Thursday.
Apart from the affiliated institutions of the university, the Ministry of AYUSH, Central Bureau of Health Education, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre, Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences and other organizations related to the healthcare sector are participating in this program, he told reporters.
The Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) is the first university established in 1998 by the Government of NCT of Delhi. Its main campus is built on more than 60 acres in Dwarka.
