UGC Organizes G20 University Connect Event in New Delhi

The University Grants Commission (UGC) is organising a University Connect event on September 26, 2023 at New Delhi. As part of the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with the Vice-Chancellors, principals, faculty members and students of the universities and colleges at Bharat Mandapam. 

Although the programme is scheduled to start at 3 pm, students along with the faculty coordinators will be required to assemble at 2 pm. The Vice-Chancellors, principals, faculty members and students will have to register first and entry to the event will be made only after registration. 

Saying that India has achieved great success in the G20 University Connect Programme which was led by the Research and information System for Developing Countries (RIS), a UGC statement issued in this regard said: “At the event, key members of the G20 Team of India would brief on the C20 outcomes.”

The commission has asked the universities and colleges of the National Capital Region (NCR) to participate in the event by nominating around 30 to 40 students and two faculty members to attend the event. The head of the institution is also invited to join the programme on September 26.

The UGC statement also added that a faculty coordinator may also be nominated for coordination and their details along with e-mail address and mobile number may be shared at dgoffice@ris.org.in.
