|Message from the Director|
The UGC – Academic Staff College, Andhra University has been organizing a number of programmers in Inter Disciplinary Refresher Courses, Orientation Courses, Panel Discussions, Seminars, Workshops, Guest Lectures, etc on a regular basis. The themes selected for the programmers are socially relevant, professionally useful and academically important. However, the media coverage is not adequate and hence the deliberations are not reaching the target group. The main goal of the “Bulletin” is to inform the concerned about the activities of UGC-Academic Staff College. The Academic Staff College has published Newsletters earlier also. The “Bulletin” of UGC-Academic Staff College, Andhra University will be published half-yearly.
The UGC-Academic Staff College, Andhra University has a catchment area of two Universities (Andhra University and Acharya Nagarjuna University consisting of 8 districts Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East Godavari, West Godavari, Krishna, Guntur and Prakasam). The Staff College has been entrusted with the job of providing necessary inputs to the newly appointed teaching staff as well as the senior teachers in the skills of teaching and updating the latest developments in their subjects. We do hope that the “Bulletin” will reach all the teachers in the catchement area so that they will be able to participate in the programmes designed by the Academic Staff College.
