Newly-appointed Delhi University vice-chancellor Professor Yogesh Kumar Tyagi said he will try to ensure that best quality education is available to all sections at the premier institution.
Speaking to PTI, Tyagi said that he wants to work collectively with all stakeholders so that “everyone is on board” and best education can be provided and opportunities created even for those who don’t have them.
The newly-appointed DU VC said he is seeking ideas and suggestions from a wide section of people including those who know about things “better” than him. The aim is to deliver the best for the society and create a platform that is open to all, he said.
When asked about the controversies that happened during the tenure of his predecessor Dinesh Singh, he said “we should look forward and focus our energies on tomorrow.”
Tyagi said he had received the order appointing him as the new Delhi University VC and would take over after the process to relieve him from his present place of work, the South Asian University where he is currently dean of faculty of legal studies.
Tyagi was appointed by the HRD ministry for a term of five year after his name was chosen from a panel of four persons by President Pranab Mukherjee, who is the visitor of all central universities.
