100 prominent institutions to be informed of BDU VC search

 Search for the vice-chancellor has begun in Bharathidasan University with the three-member search committee inviting applications from academicians in 100 prominent institutions across the country.
While the amendment to Bharathidasan University (BDU) Act 1981 by the state government has brought changes in the selection process, this is perhaps the first time that institutions outside the state would be communicated on the BDU vice-chancellor sections by the search committee.
The committee has been instructed by the governor's office to inform eminent institutions across the country so that eligible and interested candidates can apply for the post of vice-chancellor.

Saying that a letter is being prepared detailing the achievements of BDU, member of the BDU V-C search panel S Sivasubramaniyam said that, the letter would be send to the institutions which would help them have an idea about the university.
"This would provide an opportunity for eminent academicians from the state working in other parts of the country to return back as vice-chancellors. While they may not be aware of the ongoing search for V-C, a communication from the search committee to these institutions would help them apply for it," says R Venketarathinam another member of the panel.
However, it is unlikely that many candidates hailing from other parts of the country would apply as they may not be familiar with the local language, said a senior academician. But he also stressed on the need for opening up the competition to candidates from other parts of the state as for the first time minimum eligibility for a vice-chancellor candidate has been fixed.
"As per the new guidelines, the candidate should not have crossed the age of 67, he or she should have attended at least one seminar outside the country, said Sivasubramaniyam.
