AUD is a public University with a campus-based, unitary structure with research, postgraduate and undergraduate programmes in the social sciences and the humanities. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar University Delhi (Ambedkar University Delhi or AUD) was established by the Government of the NCT of Delhi through an Act of the State Legislature in 2007. The University is named after Dr B.R. Ambedkar, the visionary Indian reformer, who believed in education as the right weapon to cut social slavery… (which) will enlighten the downtrodden masses to come up and gain social status, economic betterment and political freedom.”
The University aspires to combine equity and social justice with excellence, and to pioneer an institutional culture of non-hierarchical functioning, team work and creativity. The University strongly believes that no knowledge becomes socially productive unless it spreads across society, transcending barriers of caste, creed and class. Only then can teaching and learning become liberating undertakings, contributing to the promotion of equality, social justice and excellence.
AUD caters exclusively to the study of the humanities and the social sciences. In today’s polarised world, the study of these streams, we strongly believe, will not only play a pivotal role in improving understanding amongst cultures but also transform human experiences into lessons for the future. The University aspires to mould its students into informed and sensitive professionals who will engage with their social responsibilities and will react to the needs of the marginalised sections of our society. The programmes and the structure of the University will therefore highlight this aspect while in no way losing sight of reaching and striving towards excellence.
