Vice Chancellor (for performance of duties- since 2nd Nov. 2020 until a permanent appointment is made by the Ministry of Education)

The Venerable Vice Chancellor is the chief executive and chief academic officer of the University. He is a member of the Council, which is the executive and ruling authority of the University and of the Senate, which is the Board of academic authority. He chairs both bodies.

The Venerable Vice Chancellor is entrusted with the task of implementing or with the responsibility to ensure the implementation of the decisions reached by the Council regarding the administration of the University and the decisions the taken by the Senate regarding its academic affairs.


Message of the Venerable Vice Chancellor

According to the provision of the Act No. 74 of 1984 and Act of Parliament No.37 of 1995 as amended by the Buddhist and Pali University, I have been appointed as the Vice Chancellor to perform the duties from the 2nd of November, 2020 by the Secretary to the Ministry of Education. As I was the Dean of the Faculty of Language Studies from 2005 - 2007, the Head of the Department of Sanskrit from 2005 - 2015, and I have been a member of the university Council, the acting Vice Chancellor from time to time, Deputy Secretary of Kotte Sri Kalyāni Sāmagrī dharma mahā Saṃgha Council, the Chief Saṃgha Nāyaka of Bentara Chapter and the professor in the Department of Sanskrit, I have no hesitation to perform the duties assumed.

During this crucial situation when the Covid-19 pandemic is spreading around the world, it is my prime responsibility as the present acting Vice Chancellor, until a Vice Chancellor is appointed for the permanent post, to care about the health of each and every member in the university; academics, non-academics and students while continuing the academic activities, conducting examinations and offering degrees without any delay. Secondly, I have already taken immediate measures to stabilize the university by protecting everyone’s rights and dignity so that an affable environment is reassured and encouraged for the smooth function of the university to make the vision of the University a reality.

As the Vice-Chancellor for performing duties, I pledge to extend the fullest cooperation and the support for the staff members and the students of the university that would help create friendly and healthy environment in its journey towards being the best and foremost Buddhist University in the world.

May the Triple Gem Bless You!
