The prime vision of Gauhati University is to revitalize its educational leadership and transform the University from an institution of higher education to an institution of higher development of the intellect, will and moral commitment through continuous selfdevelopment,collaboration and sharing of knowledge with institutions of excellence that would place it among the most sought-after institutions in the country.
A unique heritage
The unprecedented and spontaneous financial support of the public and their untiring involvement in the thirty-one-year struggle has thus led to the establishment of Gauhati University.During the crucial initial years, this institution received the guidance of Krishna Kanta Handiqui, a pioneering Indologist and philanthropist as its Vice-Chancellor.V. Venkata Rao, Professor Emeritus, donated his life savings ofabout 15 lakhs of rupees for the promotion of higher education in the country through several Universities.A galaxy of eminent scholars and administrators, such as Bani Kanta Kakati, Birinchi Kumar Baruah, Maheswar Neog,Satyendra Nath Sarma, Paban Chandra Mahanta, Hiten Barua, Rohini Kumar Barua and many others will always be remembered for their notable contributions to the academic world and to the development of the University.Over the years and across the decades since its existence,Gauhati University has emerged as a symbol of integration: it has offered opportunities of Higher Study to students from the ethnically and culturally diverse mosaic of communities of the North East.
