Yesterday, Dr Malabika Sarkar, Vice Chancellor, Presidency University visited the 10 acre plot of Action Area I allotted to Presidency University for their second campus. We discussed at length how the second campus could start early and the steps required to be taken. I learnt several new concepts like digital humanities, multi-disciplinary courses and other sunshine themes that may be considered in the second campus.
