Prof. R. Kumar
Rector II
Jawaharlal Nehru University

Subject: Faculty Club Building with Facilities under 11th Plan.

Dear Sir,

Please refer to our earlier request dated 10/10/2005 and subsequent discussions with you on the above- mentioned subject. As you are aware, JNUFC conducts cultural, recreational and sports activities for the faculty and their children. In most state and central universities, there is a separate place and infrastructure for faculty club activities. Unfortunately, JNU is way behind in this crucial aspect of community life on the campus and till date there is no proper place where faculty club can conduct its activities in an effective and efficient manner. It is, therefore, requested that proper space and infrastructure may please be provided to the faculty club for the following:

  • Office- 1 room,

  • Music & Dance- 2 halls with a sitting capacity of 50 people

  • Indoor Badminton and TT courts (like indoor badminton court in Students Activity Centre)

  • Cafeteria with dining Hall

  • Swimming Pool

  • Gymnasium with equipment

  • Library for children

  • Children’s park with play equipment

A Faculty Club House maybe seen as an essential professional requirement also, rather than a space for recreational use. The faculty in the university has to rely on other places to entertain professional colleagues; as such a environment does not exist on Campus. It is important for faculty to have an equivalent place to forge collaborations. A club – by definition, of closed membership – will be able to get a license to run an establishment that can provide these facilities.  Therefore, the JNUFC would request the university to forward this proposal as part of larger 11th Plan. 

Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,
