Govt brings e-revolution to campuses, to connect with students across India

New Delhi: Even before a new session begins, all leading universities
and other higher education institutions in the country are busy setting
up social media cells to connect all students and staff with the Union
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).

A senior MHRD
official said: “Through this mammoth social media networking, the
Ministry expects to establish a much better and positive understanding
between the students and the government.”
Sources said all
vice-chancellors have been told that their respective universities
should nominate one senior faculty as Social Media Champion (SMC), who
would connect three prominent social platforms with each student. The
SMC of each university would upload “at least one positive story/event
every week of their institution (by teachers or students) on social
media platforms”.
