Mentors in Presi VC panel hunt

The Presidency mentor group is in the process of selecting the university’s nominee to the search committee that will shortlist candidates for the post of the institute’s first full-term vice-chancellor.

The extended tenure of Malabika Sarkar, the interim VC of Presidency, ends on February 15.

The three-member search committee will comprise a representative each of Presidency, government and the governor, who is also chancellor of the university.

Presidency’s nominee could be a member of its governing board, which is likely to be formed once the statutes are drawn up in January. Sources said the government’s nominee could be Harvard professor Sugata Bose, the chairman of the mentor group.
