Coordinator of research at the University, Professor J. N. Viswakarma states, “Following the time-hallowed traditions of the great universities of the world, this University seeks to make itself a centre for culture, knowledge, research, Intellectual ferment, for critical thinking and analysis of whatever shapes and impacts human life, a centre that influences thinking, planning and policy making on vital aspects of social life such as religion, culture, society, politics, governance, education, and health care.”
