Srinagar: Vice-Chancellor of University of Kashmir Prof Khurshid Iqbal Andrabi on Monday visited South Campus at Anantnag and assured full support to its growth and development. He said it is the University’s endeavor to have its satellite campuses developed as specialized campuses with high-quality infrastructure and manpower.

While KU Registrar Prof Musadiq Amin Sahaf and Prof Shabir A Bhat from Department of Management Studies spoke on the occasion, those present included Prof Farooq A Khan (Director CCPC), Dr Ashfaq A Zarri, Director South Campus; Prof Bashir Ahmad Nehvi; Dr Syed Sehrish Asgar (IAS), Public Relations Officer Faheem Aslam, a team from Purple Iris led by Laxmi Moorthy and students and faculty of South Campus.
Prof Andrabi, after taking stock of ongoing development projects, chaired a meeting of faculty members where Director South Campus, Dr Ashfaq Zarri, gave a power-point presentation on short and long-term requirements of the institution vis-à-vis human resource and manpower. The VC assured Dr Zarri that the University shall offer its full support required for the progress of the institution and proposals in this regard be immediately finalized and submitted for necessary approvals.
