University with Excellence (UE)

Brief Information

  • UGC developed a Scheme “Universities with Potential for Excellence” (UPE) and provided financial support to identified potential universities to set higher achievement goals and strived for achieving them. Later on, UGC identified some universities from among the Universities with Potential for Excellence which already achieved excellence and innovation in teaching and research to a considerable extent and completed first/second phase under the Scheme and designated them as the University of Excellence (UoE). The UoEs, in addition to striving to attain the broad objectives, focused on interdisciplinary innovative teaching and research and innovative programmes to become real “centres of knowledge creations”.
    UGC provided financial support and the quantum of assistance was upto Rs. 150 crores to those universities which conferred “University of Excellence” status.
    Accounts are being settled.
