Universities should become the laboratories for exposing students to the problems in nation building: President Kovind

President Ram Nath Kovind has said that universities should become laboratories for exposing students to the problems that need to be addressed in the cause of nation-building.

Addressing a conference of Vice-Chancellors of Central Universities at Rashtrapati Bhavan today, he said the objective of the these universities should be to constantly grow and upgrade themselves to the best of global standards.

Mr Kovind said beyond classrooms and labs, students should be encouraged to take up socially-oriented ventures through National Service Scheme or other clubs.

The President said students must be encouraged to emerge as job-creators rather than job-seekers.
