Education for social change

We are a space for social change. 

We believe that education can and should contribute to human development and well-being. Over the years, we have nurtured a community of individuals motivated by the values enshrined in the Indian constitution: a commitment to social justice, equity, humane values and sustainability.

We believe that higher education can create critical and reflective practitioners with an understanding of the social impact of education, the law and development. 

Our programmes are designed to prepare reflective and critical practitioners who can bring their educational experience at the University to practice on the ground — with competence, integrity, and most of all, social commitment.

A caring community

We believe that social change begins with care.

We care for the well-being of each individual in our community. We hope that learning can be a dynamic and creative process that will help all individuals discover their potential. 

Our diverse community of students are from all over India with a wealth of experiences. They come from a vast diversity in socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. We understand that generations of social inequality in India makes the experience of the classroom unique for each student.

We support our student community through the various challenges they face in their academic journeys, inside and outside the classroom. 

In the classroom

We strive to create an inclusive environment for learning. We provide assistance and different forms of support in the classroom to ensure that disadvantages of social background do not hinder a creative and fulfilling academic experience. 

Our community of faculty and mentors are committed to a caring classroom experience. We provide academic support for foundational capacities in language, reasoning and quantitative analysis through the course of different academic programmes. We offer remedial support whenever necessary for students to get through their coursework.

We help each of our students understand their hopes and nurture their dreams.

Beyond the classroom

University is a time for the exploration of oneself and the world. We support our students through the challenges they face not only in the classroom but in the peer group and in their personal lives.

We ensure a supportive and collegial environment and access to help for those in need and understand that special circumstances may arise any time.

We provide counselling services on and off campus, along with peer-support groups run by students on campus. Our mentorship programme takes care of each individual through the course of their study.

Financial assistance

We believe that nobody should drop out because of financial problems. We provide extensive financial aid to help students fund their study.

Careers

We ensure that our graduates make successful choices in the jobs they go on to do. Our Placement Cell ensures that our graduates are equipped with the skills needed to make effective decisions in a competitive environment of jobs. We assist our students in finding employment opportunities well suited to their needs.
