Vision of the University
Berhampur University was established in 1967 as a State funded Public University. The vision and motto of the University are well explained in other sections of the website. Here, on behalf of the university, I would like to briefly spell out on the various schemes in achieving our vision for the University during the next few years. Like all great universities, our main focus shall be to continue and augment quality education and research with the latest knowledge in each field and to prepare our students on ethical, contemporary, rationale and an ideal knowledge based education in becoming a beacon of light and hope for the nation and globe. We intend to start new programs in astronomy, climate change, disaster management, tribal studies, traditional knowledge and innovations, public health, philosophy, yoga and sports and carry out with lots of science and society based inter-disciplinary research. The campus shall have a new Gents and Ladies Hostel, all basic infrastructure facilities towards quality education such as, library, digital education, academic complex, lab and research facilities, sports and games, arts and culture, timely examinations and results related activities shall be strengthened. We shall have a more greener campus with large green cover, solar energy, and solid and liquid waste management systems in place. We are going for fresh recruitment and also focus on career growth of our existing faculty members and include proper guidance and advice of senior professors, eminent retired faculty members and staff. Our non-teaching staff have been a source of strength and their contribution for the growth of university shall be well recognized in all possible methods. Self financed courses such as in Education, Pharmacy, Biotechnology and others shall be revamped and strengthened much better. The career counselling cell, placement cell, alumni outreach cell, academic ethics cell, student recreation centre, sports and gym facilities, civil services and research examinations coaching, student-teacher interaction, transparent, quick and clean administration though e-office management and technology based learning management systems shall be augmented soon. We consider our alumni to be our greatest strength and pride and forward to their contribution intellectually and through generous donations and ideas for development of the university. Presently, our NIRF national university ranking stands between 151-200. I think, we can do much better if we stand up to our full potential and aim find a place in the top 50 in the next 5 years. While we envision a bright decade for our University, we shall endeavour to achieve our targeted goals with full interest and zeal; let's hope we shall be successful. I look forward to your cooperation, suggestions and advice in realizing our vision to a reality soon.
