3rd February 2018, Founder’s Day celebrations
It was a special afternoon on the Presidency University campus, when all the staff gathered together to celebrate the Birthday of our Chancellor, Dr. Nissar Ahmed. Enthusiastic students made a beautiful Rangoli with the logo of Presidency University as the focus of the design.
The program began with a welcome address by the Pro Vice Chancellor , Dr Radha Padmanabhan giving insights on the Chancellor – and his qualities that helped him accomplish the many achievements to his credit. Dr Vijayan Immanuel, the Pro Chancellor said that what was most dear to the Chancellor was his family – which consisted of two parts – his own small family and the larger family of Presidency Group of Institutions (PGI) , all of whom were close to his heart.
The Chancellor addressed the staff and shared that Presidency University had been recently adjudged the “Best University in South India” by ASSOCHAM. He reiterated that the successes achieved would not have been possible without the efforts of the PGI family. Goals and plans for expansion of the University were also shared with the audience.
The Chancellor was presented with a beautifully framed picture of himself by the Key Officials of the University to mark the occasion.
