To make an impact in society

It is a greater duty of a university to make positive contribution in the vast body of collective knowledge. It is within the scopes and opportunities of an academic institution to critically observe, analyze, synthesize, speculate and create new knowledge and applications with proper and varied methodologies. UAP upholds that responsibility and wants to create direct impact on the society at large. UAP encourages both the faculty members and students to delve into their chosen fields by incorporating scopes in both within curricular activities and in personal/ collective endeavors by form of providing funds, infrastructural supports and options to test theories in direct practices.
