Four batches of Assam Women's University's former students will breathe a sigh of relief with the University's first convening scheduled for February 25.
Established in 2013 by a State Assembly Act, the University went on steam in 2014, with its first batch passing out in 2016.
Since its inception, the University has been run by a mentor with current Vice-Chancellor Malinee Goswami assuming charge on September 12, 2019, restoring concerns that the University will be downgraded to a technical institute as proposed by Minister of Education Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Sarma had not only challenged the validity of the provisional pass certificates issued by a mentor on the Assembly floor, as well as the selection of a mentor to run the University.
These remarks had caused a lot of heartburn with the students taking to the streets in protest, followed by massive support from all quarters like AASU and various political and apolitical organizations in the country.
Professor Jagdish Mukhi, Assam Governor, and Assam Women's University Chancellor will give the lecture on the convocation and confer the degrees on the university's students who have passed it.
