23/1/2015 - India - Don Bosco University nominated as Education Evangelist 2014

(ANS – Guwahati) – The Assam Don Bosco University (ADBU) has been nominated as the “SkillTree Education Evangelist 2014” from among 20 such institutions from around the country. It will be featured in a television program on Times NOW channel, (5.30 pm) Saturday 24 January 2015.

“Education evangelists are the visionaries and change makers who have contributed and are contributing towards the growth of the Indian education system both quantitatively and qualitatively,” says SkillTree Global Knowledge Consortium Representative Gurjashan Singh.

Mr Singh adds, “The Education Evangelist of India 2014 television episodes will showcase outstanding educationists, recognize them for their contribution to higher education, cover them extensively by way of pan-India media coverage, and confer upon them the coveted honorary title - 'Education Evangelist of the Year’ at a televised feature in mid-February on Times NOW channel”.

Evidently pleased with the choice of Don Bosco University for this singular recognition, Fr (Dr) Stephen Mavely says enthusiastically, “This is what we have in mind when we say that Don Bosco University is a ‘university with a difference’”...

“The university is a centre for culture, knowledge, research, intellectual ferment... for critical thinking and analysis of whatever shapes and impacts human life...  that influences thinking, planning, and policy making in vital aspects of social life... THAT is our role.”

“The university strives to make professional and higher education accessible to the weaker sections of society... THAT is our solemn commitment.”

“The university spares no effort to ensure that our graduates become dependable and truly human leaders with a strong sense of commitment to the poor, the disadvantaged and the needy... THAT is the goal embedded in our vision.”

“The university strives for excellence in every process and undertaking; and, among many other things, it specializes in research with social relevance... THAT is our approach.”

The Initiative first came up in 2013 as a television series in media association with ET Now (Economic Times) which conferred the SkillTree Education Evangelist of India title along with Karmaveer Chakra instituted by the UN.
