JGU recommended by UGC for Institution of Eminence tag
JGU has been recommended by the University Grants Commission (UGC) as an Institution of Eminence (IoE). The decision was taken by the UGC in its 542nd meeting held on 2 August 2019. In total, seven private and seven public universities have been recommended by the Empowered Expert Committee that was appointed by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi.
The IoE scheme was launched to implement the commitment of the Government of India to empower universities and higher educational institutions to help them become world class teaching and research institutions.
The IoE and far-reaching policy reforms in higher education will permeate the actions of all regulatory agencies and will ease the environment for higher educational institutions to enable them to focus on their core tasks.
JGU’s Founding Chancellor and benefactor, Mr. Naveen Jindal said, “I am immensely pleased with the recognition of JGU as an Institution of Eminence. JGU was established in the memory of my father, Shri O.P. Jindal who believed in education, entrepreneurship, philanthropy and nation-building. Our vision is to produce outstanding leaders who will make a true difference to the communities in which they live. I congratulate the Vice Chancellor, faculty members, students, parents of our students and staff of JGU for their hard work which led to this recognition in barely less than ten years since its inception. In our journey towards becoming a world-class university, we will make every effort to provide JGU with further resources, academic freedom and autonomy and an enabling environment for it to flourish further”.
Earlier this year, JGU broke into the QS University Rankings on three levels – Asia, BRICS and the World.
