Director's Message

Shri. Bhushan K. Savaikar

Director (Directorate of Higher Education)

"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of minds to think," - Albert Einstein

Access to quality education is at the heart of the new National Education Policy (NEP2020) and I am very happy to say that the Directorate of Higher education is providing all the necessary support for reinforcing higher education in the state of Goa. The support is being provided via scholarship schemes, research funding FDD and other administrative services.

As part of enhancing education, we have taken several initiatives including the development of the academic portal DISHTAVO(Digital Integrated System for Holistic Teaching and Virtual Orientations), MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), deployment of the centralized academic management system, etc. My hope is that these initiatives and the energy that our youth carries will transform Goa into a knowledge hub.
