JGU believes in being pluralistic in institutional and academic orientation. The university enables high quality teaching and interdisciplinary research in diverse disciplines by attracting the most talented and deserving students, and recruiting exceptional full-time faculty and researchers from India and across the world.
Universities will be inherently pluralistic in nature when there is diversity of perspectives along with those of disciplines. Geographic diversity among students and staff brings with it a multiplicity of perspectives; a range of academic, educational and professional backgrounds and experiences; greater scope for interdisciplinary and collaborative work; and deeper exchanges of diverse ideas.
Promoting a diversity of perspectives, approaches and outcomes in our work through cross-disciplinary, cross-geographic, and transnational partnerships has been fundamental to JGU’s institution building efforts. We have aimed to achieve this through an interdisciplinary approach to academics and research, intra-university collaboration, and national and international inter-institutional collaborations. Interdisciplinarity has been the central basis for the establishment of all the schools, designing of programmes, and recruitment of faculty at JGU. All the schools at JGU function as interdisciplinary hubs within themselves.
