Maharashtra Governor seeks the support of Vice Chancellors in increasing Tribal Enrolment in State Universities

Mumbai :- Observing that the gross enrollment of scheduled tribes in higher education is merely 14 per cent as against the State average of 32, Maharashtra Governor Ramesh Bais today called upon vice chancellors of State Universities to make extra effort to curb the dropout rate of scheduled tribes from higher education institutions and to increase their enrollment and retention in higher education.

In this connection, the Governor asked vice chancellors to personally visit tribal areas, understand their problems and create hostel facilities and scholarships for the students from scheduled tribes to attract and retain them in the higher education system.

The Governor was speaking at the inauguration of Vice Chancellors’ Conclave on ‘Tribal Development and Research’ at Raj Bhavan Mumbai on Tue (26 Sept). The Conclave was organised with the initiative of Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University (SRTMU).

The Governor said universities should consider increasing their engagements with tribal villages and adopt a few tribal villages. He felt that universities should invest in skilling and upskilling tribals to increase their employability and incomes.

Former Chairman of National Commission for Scheduled Tribes Harsh Chauhan, Vice Chancellor of the Birsa Munda Tribal University, Rajpipla Madhukarrao Padvi, vice chancellor of SRTMU Dr Udhav Bhosale and vice chancellors of various state universities were present.
