University Assembly is a unique function of our University which complements our academic programmes for liberal arts education as well-known personalities of diverse background will speak to, and exchange views with, our students. These experiences enable you to learn from the speakers, keep abreast of the concerns and developments of the community and broaden their perspectives.
