From The Vice Chancellor’s Desk


The land and people of East Siang District are fortunate to have the long-desired State University established at Pasighat. We are late, but not too late. It took almost ten years from the date of conceiving the idea of having own state university of Arunachal Pradesh.

The university fraternity would like to acknowledge with thanks Shri Bosiram Siram, the then Education Minister of the state of Arunachal Pradesh, who mooted the idea of having own state university and got it passed in the State Legislative Assembly in the year 2011 and finally the University Act (No. 5 of 2012) was published in the Arunachal Pradesh Gazette in the year 2012.

The state of Arunachal Pradesh was fortunate to have Brigadier (Rtd) B.D. Mishra as the Governor of the State who gave special attention to the long desired mission of the state and gave life to it. Due to his initiative, a Search Committee for Vice-Chancellor was formed and finally I got the opportunity to be the First Vice-Chancellor of the First State University. Lt. General Kaiwalya Trivikram Parnaik, the present Chancellor of Arunachal Pradesh University and His Excellency, the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh is also very much concerned about the timely growth of this university.

Among many, I would like to mention the names of Professor Saket Kushwaha, present Vice-Chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University, Rono Hills, Doimukh, Professor Debabrata Das, Vice-chancellor of Assam Rajiv Gandhi University of Cooperative Management, Sivsagar Assam and Prof. Otem Padung, the Finance Officer of the Rajiv Gandhi University who were very much concerned about the beginning of the university. Here, I do not claim that I qualify their vision, however, shall never fail them.

The University fraternity must acknowledge the hard work of Dr. S.N. Jha, Associate Professor, JNC Pasighat who was appointed as Officer on Special Duty (OSD) long back and who kept touch with the state government regarding this university. Arunachal Pradesh University is lucky to have Shri Narmi Darang, Associate Professor, JNC as the First Registrar of the University. The humble beginning was possible only due to his ability and mobility towards his work. He was adjudged as one of the Outstanding College Teachers of the state in 2014.

The university, while fulfilling its objectives, shall always remember the goal enshrined in the Arunachal Pradesh Act 2012 which says “The University shall endeavor through research, education, training and extension to play a positive role in the socio-economic development and promotion of cultural heritage of the state of Arunachal Pradesh.”

Dear students, this is your university at your doorstep, take maximum knowledge from it.
