Welcome from the Vice Chancellor
I am glad to appraise you that ours is the Apex Professional University (APU) established by Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh University Act no.7 of 2013 and recognized by UGC under section 2f of the UGC Act, 1956. This University aims to cater the educational programs for the academic excellence, competence and to build an educationally, culturally and socially developed society in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, nay the entire nation & abroad.
The unique feature of our University is to establish professional community colleges and to empower aspiring students through appropriate skill development leading to gainful employment and self-employability (this is of the first kind in our country). Besides, community colleges, APU launches novel educational flexible programs like Multi-entry & Multi-exist admissions, admission to external students(students who did & could not register for regular admissions in our university), biannual (academic and calendar) admissions to meet the huge educational requirements of the masses of our country and abroad. The continuous exploration of new strategies results in flexible but dynamic curriculum that reflects the latest Academia-Industry interactions to meet the present day market expectations.
The APU provides world class state of the art facilities in teaching, training and research with highly qualified, experienced, efficient & effective and committed faculty. The APU will be gleaming and glittering not only for the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom but also for skill workmanship and professionalism.
Nowadays, there is tremendous change in the mode of teaching (pedagogy). The change is so fast, we have to change for the change, so that we can exchange. At present the teacher is no longer a spoon feeder. He is a guide, psychologist & helper and aptly called as “Facilitator” and the student as “learner”. The teacher is that of a catalyst in a class room to speed up the reaction of the learning process, rather than a knowledge bank. In the western world, a teacher is remembered as long as he is heard by the teacher, but in our great Indian culture, the teacher is remembered & respected in the class, outside the class and throughout the life. Let us protect & preserve our unique Indian culture through the portals of our university which is meant ultimately for the refinement & enlightenment of the society, thereby justifiable to the APU Motto-Inspiring the minds, creating the leaders not followers and serving the nation.
Beyond the shadow of doubt, APU reaches the pinnacle of glory and the “APEX WILL BE THE APEX OF OUR COUNTRY “in the horizon of higher education in the years to come. As the maiden Vice-Chancellor of APU, I wholeheartedly wish our visionary, the dynamic and indefatigable personality, the first Chancellor of our University and my efficient mission, a grand success, nothing but success & achievement.
