It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Jindal School of Liberal Arts and Humanities (JSLH). As a student in a liberal arts programme you become an intellectual explorer. The dictionary definition of “explorer” is “…somebody who travels to distant or unfamiliar places to find out more about them.” This is a fairly accurate description of a liberal arts education.
As a student in this school of liberal arts and humanities, you can now embark on that journey and ask challenging questions, find out what really matters to you, learn about the world as it is and imagine the world as you think it ought to be.
O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) is a non-profit global university established by the Government of Haryana and recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC). JGU is a research intensive university, which is deeply committed to its core institutional values of interdisciplinarity and innovative pedagogy; pluralism and rigorous scholarship; and globalism and international engagement.
