The Bangalore University Syndicate has decided to give gold medals to all first rank-holders in both post-graduate and under-graduate courses for the 2012-2013 academic year. The university had stopped giving gold medals for a few years.

After the syndicate meeting on Tuesday, Vice-Chancellor Prof Thimme Gowda told reporters, “Nearly 50 students from PG courses and 25 from UG courses, who are first rank-holders, will be given gold medals, along with certificates and cash prize from endowments.”

The V-C also said eight candidates have been shortlisted for honorary doctorates and the list has been sent to the chancellor for approval.

Meanwhile, Registrar (Evaluation) R K Somashekar submitted a 283-page report to the Vice-Chancellor with explanation to various allegations concerning the BU.

The same report has been forwarded to the government for a final decision.

The Bangalore University Syndicate also agreed to lease out an acre of land on the Jnana Bharathi campus to the fire and emergency services department to set up its station.

The Syndicate approved the affiliation of post-graduate courses to a few colleges and agreed to the seat enhancement in Jain Degree College for BCom and BBM courses.

It also approved the proposal of revisiting certain colleges for approval of courses, he added.
