Vice Chancellor’s Message


Dear Alumni,

As we enter the 10th Anniversary Year of JGU, 2018-19, we have many accomplishments to celebrate – the establishment of eight schools, three research and capacity building institutes, multiple interdisciplinary research centers, and the expansion of campus facilities. However, our most important accomplishment is and will continue to be, the creation of a diverse, far-reaching university community of students and alumni. As of August 2018, we have approximately 2000 alumni worldwide.

As JGU continues to grow over the coming years, our success will be tied to that of our students and alumni. As a student at JGU, you contributed to the University’s institution building efforts during a crucial time in its initial years. As an alumni, you play as important a part in representing JGU’s core values among which are respect for pluralism, diversity, and collegiality; in advancing the University’s reputation as a higher education institution committed to providing a global education; in embodying the commitment of JGU and its founders to public service; and in championing the University’s spirit of community outreach, concern for the environment, and the highest ethical standards in all our endeavours. At this crucial time in JGU’s institution building history, we rely on you even more in our efforts to expand our disciplinary and programme offerings, strengthen interdisciplinary research, provide the best standards of teaching and classroom experience, and enhance the residential campus experience for all members of the University community.

In order to carry forward and strengthen your relationship with JGU, we have launched the official site for the JGU Alumni Network. We welcome you to register on the portal: so that you can participate in our social and networking events and avail the 'members only' privileges and benefits of the JGU Alumni Network.

We request you to encourage your fellow alumni to register as well and help us build a vibrant Alumni Community.

We are proud to have you as members of JGU’s growing community. As JGU graduates, you are the Institution’s most valuable resource and we hope to build a lifelong relationship with you that is enriching and also enables us to support succeeding batches of JGU graduates.


Thanks and best regards
