Positive action by cherishing golden memories with alma-materCampus News, MessageBoard, by rmohanty_bgr.
All of us have spent four years in the campus as a student and are quite familiar with all the student related problems of the University and few might have been familiar with the other genuine problems as faculty or administrator as well.
Let’s cherish our golden moments in the campus only and forget the bitter moments of the past to make a bright future ahead. Lets always think what best we can do for our alma-mater ?
Instead of putting further personal comments and views, Lets start working and take the responsibilty of acting on our positive thoughts and encourage and help the small group of teachers, alumni and students who are always taking some noble initiatives and doing something for the betterment to see our alma-mater coming out with flying colors. Lets increase that group strength by more and more involvement in the developmental activities and developmental projects which have already been initiated. Let’s do our part whatever way we like…… Lets complete the “CLASS ROOM IMPROVEMENT PROJECT” which has already started in CSE Department and many alumni have contributed to the cause.
LET ME TAKE A PROMISE TODAY WHICH I HAVE THOUGHT OF IMPLEMENTING LAST YEAR. I AM READY TO CONTRIBUTE 1%(ONE PERCENT OF MY SALARY EVERY MONTH FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CSE DEPARTMENT.
I will hand over the money/cheque annually to HOD, CSE every year during the Annual Alumni Meet of the Department.
As a duty of secretary of the Alumni Association, I have already communicated the message to Our Honorable Vice-Chancellor cum President of the Alumni Association and concerned authorities via e-mail to take necessary action for the betterment of our alma-mater. We will call an extended executive body meeting of the alumni association to discuss the devlopmental activities in 3rd week of August. You are most welcome to attend that meeting or put your constructive suggestions through e-mail ( to me or president or vice-president)
Also as a Secretary of Teachers Association of the University, I will organize an all faculty meeting of the University, when I will be back to Burla next week to discuss this matter. You know most of the time, these student related issues are taken care of frequently in Wardens Meeting or HOD’s meeting though out of context. We faculty members have spent hours of valuable time and efforts together to resolve student problems and other academic problems.
Some facts about CSE/IT/MCA Department :
WE AS FACULTY MEMBERS ( WITH THE HELP OF FEW ALUMNI OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY) HAVE RESISTED THE NEGATIVE MOVES OF CLOSING THE IT DEPARTMENT AND INCREASING THE STRENGTH OF CSE DEPARTMENT AND HAVE TAKEN EXTRA LOADS TO PREVENT CLOSING OF M.TECH. PROGRAMS IN THE DEPARTMENT IN 2009.
ONE BITTER TRUTH IS THAT ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY.
LET’S ALL TEACHERS, STUDENTS AND ALUMNI WORK POSITIVELY WITH NOBLE INTENTION FOR YEARS TOGETHER WITH PATIENCE AND PERSEVERENCE TO BRING THE GLORY BACK.
DO NOT FORGET THAT “SMALL SMALL ACHIEVEMENTS COMBINED TOGETHER WILL LEAD TO BIGGER ACHIEVEMENTS TO BRING OUR GLORY BACK”.
LETS THINK POSITIVE, ACT POSITIVE, ACHIEVE POSITIVE.
with best wishes
