New Delhi, 17 May 2022: The Academics for Action and Development of Delhi University including the Vice-Executive Chancellor’s Council (EC) and Academic Council (AC) have taken it to the vice-chancellor to take a decision in the College of Art’s situation.
They have stated that the college has started the admission process being a part of the Ambedkar University, Delhi when its proposal for de-affiliation with the Delhi University was rejected by the EC.
“This is to bring to your urgent attention that the Principal of College of Arts, has formally started the admission process in BFA & MFA courses for the academic session 2022-23, as a part of Ambedkar University. This development is consequent upon a meeting to this effect held on 9.5.2022,” written to the VC by 11 teachers.
They also urged the VC to take necessary actions to stop the deaffiliation from the DU and facilitate the admission process of College of Arts under Delhi University as per the decision of the Executive Council.
Last year, the Delhi government had announced that the DU’s College of Arts will be a part of the Dr BR Ambedkar University. This step was then condemned by the students and faculty of the Delhi University and College of Arts.
