The Vice Chancellor (VC) of the HNB Garhwal University, Srinagar Annpurna Nautiyal has said that Covid-19 pandemic has thrown many challenges for the academic leadership in higher education. She was addressing the inaugural session of a five days Lecture-Series on ‘Academic Leadership in Higher Education during and after COVID-19’, organized by the Faculty Development Centre (FDC) of HNB Garhwal University on Monday.
Elaborating these challenges the VC said that getting connected to students with a weak network, maintaining social distancing, ensuring conditions for physical and mental health of students, faculty, administrators, staff and other workers, keeping pace with the required teaching, examination and research are the major challenges.

He highlighted that all the pillars of the higher education system should discharge their duties properly.
