36 make it to Ranchi varsity senate list

Ranchi, March 23: Raj Bhavan today nominated 36 members to Ranchi University (RU) senate, thus paving the way for a meeting of the institute’s most important body that has been pending for the past three years.

The last senate meeting was held after a gap of over two decades in the 2007-08 academic year. Rules say that the senate should meet twice a year and at least one under special circumstances. But since no such meeting was convened in the past three years, the powers of the body remained vested with vice chancellor A.A. Khan.

The nominated senate members, whose names were cleared by the office of governor-cum-chancellor of universities, include heads of 12 post-graduate departments — mathematics, geology, zoology, economics, psychology, philosophy, Bengali, Urdu, commerce, tribal and regional languages, home science and sociology.

Principals of 10 constituent colleges of RU have also found places in the senate. They are from Ranchi College, Birsa College, KO College, Doranda College, Simdega College, BS College, Marwari College, RLSY College, PPK College and KC Bhagat College.

According to sources, the senate functions like the legislative Assembly. It approves the annual budget of a university and vets the decisions taken by different varsity bodies like academic council, syndicate, examination board and moderation board among others.
