About the University

 

The University of Delhi is a premier university of the country with a venerable legacy and international acclaim for highest academic standards, diverse educational programmes, distinguished faculty, illustrious alumni, varied co-curricular activities and modern infrastructure. Over the many years of its existence, the University has sustained the highest global standards and best practices in higher education. Its long-term commitment to nation building and unflinching adherence to universal human values are reflected in its motto: 'Nishtha Dhriti Satyam' '?????? ???? ??????' (Dedication, Steadfastness and Truth). 

Established in 1922 as a unitary, teaching and residential University by the Act of the then Central Legislative Assembly, a strong commitment to excellence in teaching, research and social outreach has made the University a role-model and trend setter for other universities. The President of India is the Visitor, the Vice-President is the Chancellor and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India is the Pro-Chancellor of the University. Beginning with three colleges and 750 students, it has grown as one of the largest universities in India with 16 faculties, over 80 academic departments, an equal number of colleges and over seven lakh students. Over 500 programmes offered by the University are approved by Academic and Executive Councils, out of which 209 programmes are being considered for NAAC accreditation purpose. The rest being run in colleges are separately accredited. 

Drawing students and faculty from across India and abroad, the University has emerged as a symbol of excellence, integrity and openness of mansa (thought), vaacha (speech) and karmana (action).

 

Sir Maurice Gwyer,  the then Vice-Chancellor, realizing  the  importance  of a  distinguished  faculty to  act as role models,  relentlessly searched for talent all over  the  country  and roped in men of eminence to this University, such as Prof. D.S. Kothari in Physics, Prof. T.R. Sheshadri in Chemistry, Prof. P Maheshwari in Botany and Prof. M L Bhatia in Zoology.

Five Departments namely Chemistry, Geology, Zoology, Sociology and History have been awarded the status of the Centres of Advanced Studies. These Centres of Advanced Studies have carved a niche for themselves as centres of excellence in teaching and research in their respective areas. In addition, a good  number  of University  departments are  also receiving   grants under   the  Special   Assistance Programme of the UGC in recognition of their outstanding academic work. 10 Departments (Germanic & Romance Studies, Hindi, Persian, Geography, Music, East Asian Studies, Anthropology, Mathematics, B.R.Ambedkar, M. I.L.) are getting grants under DRS, 2 Departments (Buddhist Studies, English) are getting grants under DSA, 3 Departments (English, Buddhist Studies, Social Work) are getting grants under AISHSS and 3 Departments (African Studies, East Asian Studies, Developing Countries Research Centre) are getting grants under Area Studies Programmes. Department of Adult, Continuing Education and Extension and Women’s Studies & Development Centre of the University are also getting special funding from UGC. The University today boasts of as many as 15 big libraries apart from libraries in colleges. The University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) which is now situated close to the Physics and Chemistry Departments houses a number of sophisticated and high-end research instruments. These instruments are used quite frequently by Teachers and Research Scholars of postgraduate departments of the University as well as by many other institutions in Delhi and its neighbourhood. The University has recently laid fibre-optic network in the North and the South Campuses connecting all colleges and departments.

When the University of Delhi expanded in many directions to keep pace with a rapidly growing city, South Campus was established in 1973 to facilitate access for the residents of South Delhi. It moved to its present location on Benito Juarez Road, near Dhaula Kuan, in 1984. The Campus is now spread across 69 acres of green, hilly terrain and its buildings blend attractively with the natural surroundings. The various departments are located in the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Inter-disciplinary and Applied Sciences. S.P. Jain Centre for Management Studies is also located at the South Delhi Campus. Besides these, the Campus has a good library, a Health Centre, a Bank, a Post Office, DTC Pass Section and administrative and examination blocks. South Campus also provides some residential quarters for faculty members and the non-teaching staff. Outstation students are offered accommodation in three hostels.

Yogesh Tyagi

Since its founding in 1922, the University of Delhi is acclaimed for its outstanding contribution to teaching, research and service in nation building. Today, the University stands to meet the enormous expectations of society. Society wants us to nurture professionals and scholars of high calibre, who can offer solutions to a broad range of issues.  This requires excellence in teaching and research at par with the best in the world.

We, at the University of Delhi, continuously aspire to be a breeding ground for positive ideas and emerge as a symbol of openness of thoughts, cultural pluralism and celebrating the unity in the diversity of India. We endeavor to touch the lives of every student by inculcating prudence, efficiency, creativity and compassion to work for the betterment of the marginalized sections of society. We attempt to kindle their sense of —responsibility, honesty, conscience, justice — and above all commitment to human values.

We aim to expand our reach to the inaccessible regions through virtual presence and become a centre of knowledge osmosis. We seek to empower every inquisitive soul with the best available human resources. We intend to intensify our endeavors to mobilize more resources and create conducive ambience for our faculty, students and staff to actualize their potential.

Our students form the core of our existence as an institution, and we want to give wings to their dreams. We expect them to be passionate about their dreams and make their family and society proud of their achievements. It is crucial for the parents to keep reminding their wards to remain focused on their education and to instil in them a sense of responsibility and care towards the concerns of fellow beings. It will give them strength and motivation to work hard for a greater cause in life. 

We intend to pursue a multi-stakeholder consultation approach, in which students, teachers and staff, as well as alumni, former faculty members and other stakeholders, including the media, play a meaningful role. We should be conscious of maintaining a civilized discourse and ensuring that our expressions and actions abjure violence, display allegiance to the Constitutional ethos and strengthen faith in the rule of law. The choice is ours to either be a complainant or a reformer. We have a mammoth task of employing higher education as a means of attaining peace and development for all.

We pay our tribute to those who had been associated with the University and seek to meet their expectations to take the University to greater heights. We are proud of our alumni and their achievements. Now, their alma mater seeks their stronger support.

We urge everyone to join us in fostering a healthy, peaceful and engrossing atmosphere at the University campuses, colleges and affiliated institutions. We invite you to contribute actively and enrich the University with your intellectual resources, rich experiences and fruitful suggestions.

Best wishes

Yogesh Tyagi
