The chief minister will appoint vice-chancellors for the two new universities. After the first V-Cs retire, their successors will be appointed by the governor. The existing BU staff can be deployed among these two universities or new staff can be recruited. Each university will have a different calendar of academic events.The two new varsities can either follow the syllabus offered by the existing BU or frame a new syllabus, and also conduct examinations on different dates. A minimum of 100 acres is required to establish one university. The new varsities will offer both postgraduate and undergraduate programmes.
BIFURCATION IS BETTER
After the establishment of the Women's University, many women's colleges were affiliated to it. Similarly after trifurcation, many colleges affiliated to BU will be affiliated to either of the two new universities. It would've been better if they had bifurcated BU, instead of trifurcating it.But we don't have any objection.We request the government to give us the Central College campus as it is the heart and soul of BU and all our major departments and auditorium are on this campus B Thimme Gowda | VICE-CHANCELLOR, BU
