NEW DELHI: The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has accorded A+ status to the Marwadi University.
The university said it was awarded the accreditation following an extensive on-site inspection and detailed report submitted to an esteemed seven member visiting committee. During the review process, various aspects such as quality of teaching, learning, research, infrastructure, governance, and overall academic performance were evaluated.
The accreditation is a culmination of relentless commitment towards academic excellence, research, and overall development of Marwadi University, which was founded as Marwadi Education Foundation Group of Institutions in 2009. It was awarded state private university status by the Gujarat government in 2016.
The university said in the last academic year, it signed 56 agreements with various educational institutions such as Salesforce USA; University of Public Service Hungary, LUISS Italy, Chicago Kent College of Law USA, ZURU Tech India.
Marwadi University vice-chancellor Sandeep Sancheti said, “It is a proud moment for all of us at Marwadi University to be graded A+ by NAAC. Receiving the status of centre of excellence by Gujarat Government and the added feather of NAAC A+ at a young age of 7, is a testament of our vision and relentless efforts in the direction of delivering quality higher education. It is a culmination of continuous efforts in the realm of education, ideas, research, and training put in by the university.”
The university also became the youngest University in Gujarat to be awarded centre of excellence by the Gujarat government in 2021. It has also received statutory approvals from the UGC, Bar Council of India, AICTE, Pharmacy Council of India and the Gujarat State Council for Physiotherapy.
Marwadi University registrar Naresh Jadeja said, “The management of Marwadi University expresses their heartfelt gratitude to the NAAC team for their thorough evaluation and acknowledgment of the university's efforts. We have come a long way since we started in 2016 and have miles to go.”
