Padma Shri awardee and president of Shaheed Bhagat Singh Seva Dal, Jitender Singh Shunty was the chief guest of the event.

"Service to people and communities has been the main theme of the entire programme, and Dr Shunty and his organisation have played a lead role in serving the society during a crisis," the university stated.

Vice-chancellor Anu Singh Lather, who presided over the event, said the programme's aim was to bring together various professionals sharing their experiences during the pandemic, listen to experts and understand the ways in which they had to improvise on their professions due to the COVID-19-triggered lockdown.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on the education system, with teachers having to shift to online means of teaching from on-campus classes – a transition that not only tested their adaptation qualities but also their ability to not let the disruption hinder the learning process.
