St. Stephen's College staff to resign over autonomy row
Abhay Anand, 02 Mar 2017, #DU

The Staff Association of St. Stephen's College during an emergency meeting on March 1, 2017, have unanimously decided to resign from all administrative positions protesting against College administration’s move to get autonomy from University of Delhi.

The Staff Association of St. Stephen's College has condemned the alleged threats met out by the Principal, Prof John Varghese, to two teacher representatives on the Governing Body after its meeting held on February 25, 2017, purportedly for giving their dissent on the issue of autonomous status for the college.

 

The association has also demanded an immediate public and written apology from the Principal to the two teachers and an assurance that such intimidation will not be repeated.

 

After the College Governing Council passed the resolution, the student, teaching and non-teaching staff of the College started their protest.

 

Even before the meeting, a petition was signed by over 500 students and 30 teachers and submitted to the Governing Body. The petition appealed to defer the decision to move an application for autonomous status until consultation and consensus is obtained.

 

As per the St Stephen’s Staff Association, the College Governing Body should take back the decision to apply for autonomous status taken in a secretive and hurried manner without application of mind or consultation with stake-holders. It has reiterated that no such decision on a matter that could change the very character of college as a premier public-funded institution, providing high quality affordable education to diverse sections of society, can be taken without in-depth consultation and consensus within the college community of students, teachers and non-teaching employees.

 

Prof Nandita Narain, President, Staff Association, St. Stephens's College said, “The members of the Staff Association will register their protest in the above matters by resigning from all voluntary administrative positions as Staff Advisers of Students ' Societies and Members/ Conveners of Committees. A requisition signed by 45 out of about 50 permanent teachers (who are not on leave) for convening of an emergent Staff Council meeting to discuss the role, functions and rights of teachers in view of some developments affecting the teaching-learning environment at the College has been submitted to the Principal.”

Can i get direct admission in du or ipu in Bsc (hons) Zoology?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019
Hello aspirant I am here for helping you.
Generally in Delhi University admission is done on the basis of merit of your 10+2 percentage, and for having admission in IPU you will have to give common entrance test (CET), if you didn't give CET then you can take admission in IPU on the basis of management quota else direct admission is not possible.
I hope you got it.
Feel free to ask any query in comment section.
Best of luck.

Apoorva Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019
Hello dear student,
If you want to take admission in Delhi University you need to have a good percentage in class 12th board as you must be aware to take admission in Delhi University you should come under the criteria of the cutoff marks and which is very high every year. if you want to take admission in Delhi University yes you can take admission next year and meanwhile you are pursuing BCom from another state that is completely fine.
I hope this was helpful to you
