Pondicherry University holds a special place in the Indian University System. It was created to meet out the demands of the local community, and ever since its inception in 1985, it has shown a tremendous commitment to innovation and to serving the needs of the nation.
As a work environment, Pondicherry University has a lot to offer. We are committed to excellence across all our activities – teaching and learning, research and administration – and to serving the needs of our local, national and international communities.
As you will soon discover, a university is much more than just a place to acquire knowledge; it leads to all round personality development. At Pondicherry University we take pride in being an institution with a myriad of multidisciplinary learning opportunities, both locally and globally. The world class research undertaken by our institution not only contributes to the creation of new knowledge but is also meant to inspire you, dear students, to solve future challenges facing communities at large.
It is my great privilege to welcome you to Pondicherry University. I wish all of you a fulfilling and empowering journey ahead.
