Dimapur, March 10: The Department of History, Livingstone Foundation International College conducted a lecture programme on March 7 on the topic, “Science and Religion” with Rev Dr. Samuel Richmond, Director of Centre for Advance Religious Studies, Northeast Christian University as the resource person.
The purpose of the lecture was to instill new ideas among the students and to touch areas beyond the academic syllabus.

This program was chaired by Pechesin Kent, 2nd semester, invocation by Dantsula K Yimchunger, 4th semester, welcome note was given by Imtiba HOD, Department of History and a special number was presented by Dinman Kaurinta and Amongla Lemtur 2nd semester.
