Our vision is to be an exemplary Institution that thrives from its commitment to the transformative power of value based education, endowed with technological and pedagogical initiatives, with a special emphasis on health and well-being, that provide the impetus for goal-oriented research for societal benefit and a motivated educational journey, towards a harmonious, prosperous and sustainable future.
Our mission is based on the foundation of three primary principles:
There are two types of education: education for living and education for life. Studying to become a professional is education for a living. On the other hand, education for life requires an understanding of the essential human values. At Amrita, we believe that education should also impart a culture of the heart, based on enduring values and inner strength.
Our motivation to pursue research originated from seeing the suffering around us – poverty, starvation, sickness, environmental pollution and contamination. We believe that if we could transform compassion from a mere word into a path of action, we would be able to solve most of the world’s problems. If we take this step courageously, then our research and its outcomes will have a special beauty, spontaneity, and power. At Amrita, we strongly believe that the culmination of all research should be societal benefit.
At Amrita, we stand united in our mission towards solving globally recognized scientific and societal challenges, including environment, development, and health. Amrita stands at the strategic juncture of two streams of cultures: East and West. It is our vision to bring the two together to bridge the divide through meaningful collaborations with world class universities and innovative approaches that will benefit the entire planet.
Amrita's culture of education equips students to be rooted in the values of Dharma (righteousness), Karuna (compassion) and Shraddha (mindfulness). Endowed with qualities of acceptance, patience, self-confidence, perseverance and enthusiasm, the benefit of humanity will become uppermost in their thought, word and action. They will then pioneer innovative solutions for the benefit of all humankind, leading to sustainable health and prosperity for all. This resonates with the ancient Sanskrit prayer 'Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu'. It is a reminder of our deeper connection to the entire world around us, “May our work contribute to the happiness of all beings.”
Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham was the youngest institution to be awarded with an 'A++' grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), an autonomous body established in 1994 by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to assess and accredit institutions of higher education in the country.
