From the learnings of COVID-19 pandemic, RIVER continues its Vision and Mission within the new norms of safety.
We are all getting tuned to the ‘present’ from the disrupted linearity in work and life which mainly focuses on ;
classes (Online/offline), Services (Veterinary hospital), Hostel management, Farms, Research, Farmers trainings and other students’ activities.
By 1stMarch 2021, RIVER witnessed two remarkable events; Orientation to the first year B.V.Sc &A.H. students, and The “Graduation Day of the 2015 batch.
The successful conduct of these two important events of the academic Institute was the efforts of many, which talks about the success of collaboration during the pandemic times.
Both required extraordinary dedication, commitment, co-ordination and collaboration, initiated during the challenging months of COVID-19 lockdown and unlock times.
The consistent efforts of Admission Committee and Internship Committee had many challenges to look into. Admissions in online mode with CENTAC participation, and restart of Internship in the Unlock periods, as laid down by the Government and in line with Veterinary Council of India needed day-to-day monitoring and collaboration with various Institutions. The support from the Government in guiding was key in finding our way in the “New norms”.
I welcome the new batch of students to have a great holistic experience of knowledge building.
It’s a pleasure and satisfaction to see the new batch of graduates. I wish the new graduates all the best to fulfill their further aspirations in profession and life.
The support and involvement of all faculty, staff and parents have been key in making this symbolic programmes of resilience.
With care, cooperation and confidence, let’s move ahead.
