''Prof.Christine H.Foyer of University of Birmingham & Prof.Ralph Chill of TU, Dresden have been appointed as Adjunct Professor in University of Delhi for a period of one year. They will contribute to the academic & research activities through the VAJRA Faculty scheme of SERB, GOI,'' the university said in a tweet.

''These centres will facilitate students of rural and far off areas by providing them documents like marksheets, migration and other documents at their nearby locations as well as inquiry counters to guide them related to university matters. This will save time and energy of students by avoiding travel to North and South Campus of University. This is the part of "University at your door" initiative of University of Delhi,'' the statement said.
The facilitation Centres will be completed by this year-end having built-up area of 120 sqm each. These centres will start functioning from January 2022 and university is also planning to open college and academic departments at these university lands in future, it said.
The names of these centres are yet to be decided. The academic council of the university, in its meeting held last month, had decided that the name of these colleges/centers may be given after the names of Sushma Swaraj, Swami Vivekananda, Veer Savarkar, Sardar Patel.
The Council had authorised the vice-chancellor to finalize the name.
