Presidency University gets its first Vice Chancellor

Amita Chattopadhyay, the renowned professor of philosophy is all set to be the first vice chancellor of the Presidency University. Chattopadhyay is an alumnus of the Presidency College and a retired professor of the Jadhavpur University. It was during early part of this year that the West Bengal assembly passed the bill to upgrade the 192-year-old Presidency College into university.

The institution, with around 2,500 students, still churns out talent, but there has been a lot of criticism about its falling standards due to politics in teacher recruitment and frequent student unrest. Founded in 1817 as Hindu College, the institution was christened Presidency College in 1855.
