The Founding Vice Chancellor of JGU, Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, said, “JGU is deeply committed towards implementing the National Education Policy 2020. It is our collective and committed efforts in institution building over the last 12 years, that have taken us to this new milestone. The launch of two new schools and 17 new UG and PG programmes mark the beginning of a new journey in institutional and nation-building. As the world has been changed forever due to the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, education, learning and knowledge creation have also undergone a sea-change. Our students and future leaders need to be prepared for the unexpected and unanticipated challenges. Towards this end, our aim is to create study programmes that will respond to the future through creative, international and multidisciplinary curriculum, cutting-edge course outline and a truly global learning experience to help fulfil the goals and aspirations of our students.”
