KSWU launches Distance Education Program
As the number of literate men and women is too low in Bijapur district, a distance education program launched by the Karnataka State Women’s University (KSWU) will play a vital role in providing higher education to people, said Gulbarga M.R. Medical College Managing Director P.S. Shankar.
Speaking after inaugurating the distance education program launched by the Karnataka State Women’s University in association with the Sharada Vikas Trust of Bangalore here on Thursday, he said that compared to men, the number of women opting for higher education is low owing to their involvement in household works.
Instead of discontinuing their education after getting married, women can continue their education through the distance education program launched by the KSWU and get their degrees.
As the private companies are giving priority for recruiting women employees, the distance education programs would be helpful to them in getting better jobs and other facilities, he said.
Sharada Vikas Trust president D.V. Venkatachalapathi stated that the distance education program would provide an opportunity to students to study 93 subjects in five different segments.
Presiding over the function, Karnataka State Women’s University Vice-Chancellor Geeta Bali said that the intention of launching the distance education program was to provide opportunities for all to get higher education.
As only six per cent of women in the country are getting higher education, this move of the university would help in enabling more women to opt for higher education.
KSWU Registrar S.A. Khazi, distance education centre director H.M. Hemlatha and Syndicate member Refiq Bhandari were present.
