DIMAPUR — Governor of Nagaland La. Ganesan on Wednesday urged graduates to embrace entrepreneurship and innovation, and become job creators rather than job seekers.

Addressing graduates at the 2024 convocation ceremony of ICFAI University, he encouraged the students to explore new paths, initiate start-ups, and become the architects of innovative solutions for current societal challenges.

He said that education equips students with the tools to not only participate in the world but also re-imagine and reshape it, and advised them to share their knowledge through teaching, mentoring, and public speaking.

Acknowledging the university’s role in fostering a nurturing environment for higher education and learning, Ganesan highlighted the evolving job market and the importance of young minds leading the change.

“Education is a powerful tool for empowering individuals and communities. You must also uphold high ethical standards in both your professional and personal life. This involves honesty, integrity, and the courage to stand up for what is right, even in the face of opposition or personal cost,” he added.

The governor called upon the graduates to recognise their societal role and engage in activities addressing issues like inequality, sustainability, and healthcare.

“Leverage your skills and knowledge to create innovative solutions to complex problems. There is a moral obligation to ensure these developments benefits everyone, not just a select few”, he asserted.

He also said that the future of the economy and society rests in the hands of the youth and expressed confidence that they will lead with responsibility, ethical conduct, and a commitment to societal progress.

Meanwhile, the Chancellor, VRK Prasad, emphasised the importance of lifelong learning and wisdom beyond academic degrees. He encouraged graduates to utilise Nagaland’s rich culture and resources to create opportunities rather than seeking jobs.

He also said that the main objective of any education or learning is to develop a sound character and be a good human being, adding that they need to develop the skills of differentiating between right and wrong.

The university conferred degrees upon 414 students, including Ph.D., M.Phil., postgraduate, and undergraduate degrees, with 32 students receiving gold medals.
