Welcome to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University. We are a community that values learning. Our immodest but heartfelt goal is to be one of the world's best research universities and one of India's Top University. We regard these two pursuits as mutually reinforcing, a belief that is exemplified by our defining commitments. For example, we expect all of our undergraduate students to complete a major independent research project, and we insist that all of our faculty members – from newly minted assistant professors to internationally renowned Professors– engage fully with our teaching mission.
We are grappling with how to create peaceful, just and prosperous societies, even as we live in a society that often feels more divided and rancorous than ever, fractured along lines of race, ethnicity, income and ideology. With the right of academic freedom comes the moral responsibility to think carefully about how that right is exercised in the service of society to confront these divides. At Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, as at many institutions of higher education, we are not coddling our students — or limiting freedom of expression. Instead, we are teaching them, encouraging them and giving them the space to have the discussions that will make them better scholars and prepare them to best serve society.
These efforts will allow us to take Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University to new heights and ensure our graduates have the academic experience of their dreams and the leadership skills they need to change the world. Whether you are a student, a member of the faculty or staff, friend or alumnus, or you are interested in joining our Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University family, I wish you a warm welcome!
