It, indeed, gives me immense pleasure to inaugurate the website of the Human Resource Development Centre, Panjab University, Chandigarh as it marks an event-
much sought after and long awaited. Envisioned as a multidimensional centre which addresses the core issues of higher education through its ceaseless pursuit of academic/
pedagogic innovation and creativity in consonance with the emerging challenges and context, the increasingly important role of Human Resource Development Centre can hardly be
over-exaggerated. Through its various modules of “Orientation and Refresher Courses”, socially and civilisationally relevant ideas are generated, nourished and
circulated among the teachers – and the new frontiers of knowledge and research are explicated and shared to the benefit of all. In other words, the Human Resource
Development Centre embodies the spirit of unending experiment with knowledge- investing it with new forms, new contents and new meanings.
I hope that the Human Resource Development Centre, Panjab University, Chandigarh, under
the dynamic leadership of Honorary Director Professor Karamjeet Singh would enable the teachers engaged in higher education to considerably enhance their domains of knowledge,
teaching skills, and willingness to constantly innovate their pedagogy in the larger interest of humanity.
It is in this context that the website of the Human Resource Development Centre will
serve as an important interactive forum – for the development of human resources and innovative inter-disciplinary courses, making the college as a nodal centre of its
kind in Northern India. I hope that this new venture would facilitate the Human Resource Development Centre to realise its objectives.
I wish the Human Resource Development Centre, Panjab University, Chandigarh all success
in years to come.
