Global Jamia Alumni Network Launched
New Delhi: The Global Jamia Alumni Network (GJAN), a first of its global network conceptualised to unite Jamia alumni from different parts of the world, was inaugurated on January 6 at Jamia Millia Islamia. A portal too was commissioned. Vice chancellor Talat Ahmed said: “Being an alumnus of JNU and AMU, both of which have a vibrant alumni association, I felt that it was time that JMI too started its own alumni network.” Citing the examples of Harvard and Cambridge whose alumni have played a seminal role in their universities by way of funding and by helping with scholarships, Prof Ahmad said that in the next few years, JMI alumni too should connect with their university and contribute to it in different ways.
The constitution of GJAN has been duly approved by a Committee chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Talat Ahmad. The meeting was attended by its core members including, the Pro-Vice Chancellor, Professor Shahid Ashraf, Registrar, Mr. A. P. Siddiqui, OSD to VC, Prof. Sharfuddin Ahmad and Chairman GJAN, Prof. Moshahid Alam Rizvi. More info on GJAN can be had from :
