Distinctiveness

Teaching and Learning in higher education has a direct bearing on the type of graduates that are produced by a University. Quality assurance becomes an integral measure for ensuring that quality standards are maintained and implemented. Any higher education system becomes a waste if produces graduates with les employability.

It is with this background that Jagan Nath University has evolved quality assuring teaching and learning processes.

There are four prime purposes of higher education i.e., production of a skilled and qualified human resources, empowering students with research and innovation skills, effective teaching-learning processes, and holistic education.
