Associate professor of U C College, Aluva, V P Markose was the chief guest.

Cusat Vice-Chancellor R Sasidharan presided over the meeting. Syndicate member M K Jayaraj, Registrar S David Peter, Audit Department joint director Maheswary E V and Public Relations and Publications director Jayasam M also spoke.
