Vision & Mission
JGU's vision and mission define our agenda for action, and our distinctive characteristic as a private, global university driven by a public service mission. Our core values are central to our activities, and to achieving our aspirations.
At the core of JGU's vision and mission is our aspiration to be a role model for excellence in higher education in India and among the leading universities of the world. We aim to achieve this through pursuing an institutional identity of a multidisciplinary, research driven university fostering excellence in teaching, research, community service, and capacity building. In pursuing our goals, JGU has over time developed a sustainable, scalable and adaptive model of institutional development that remains sensitive to developments at the national and global level.
Our University motto - A Private University Promoting Public Service - has been the principal basis of the University's rapid growth since 2009.
Our model of institutional growth will also remain sensitive to development of local communities, deepening of democratic traditions in India and potential contributions to sustainable ecosystems.
Over the next decade, as JGU expands rapidly, our vision, mission and core values will become ever more crucial, in order that our future is created through a mindful recognition of our past; anticipating the needs of future generations; our institutional responsibility to the University's various stakeholders and neighbouring communities; and our commitment to public causes that will advance India's social and economic development and further nation building.
