?By your response to our invitation, you have expressed your love and responsibility towards your wards;? said Prof Kalita stating that ?parents too are members of the ADBU family.?
Besides the inaugural and introductory session at the atrium, the parent-faculty interaction had two other moments.
The first session was held in the respective faculty rooms with Heads of Departments and Mentors (faculty members assigned to students in the mentor program) in the presence of the student.
The second moment was in the ADBU Conference Hall where parents could express their concerns to the Management and Administration.
The principal encouraged parents to collect the contact phone number of the Mentor as well as the password to access detailed information of the performance of their ward from the university website.
