Permanent University Campus
A residential University campus is being constructed on the outskirts of Bangalore. It will have state of the art facilities and will be an iconic and one of its kind campus in India. The campus will be designed to reflect the spirit of openness, collaboration and communication required to foster an exemplary learning environment. The vibrancy of campus life will be facilitated by provision of world class infrastructure. The campus plan will pay adequate attention to ecologically friendly practices, creating spaces for open learning and adequate facilities for sports and the arts.
Institutional Culture and Community
A fundamental goal of the Azim Premji University community is to foster an environment of collegiality in which its members may live, learn and work productively together. This community is characterized by respect for the dignity of others, cooperation, reflection and dialogue. Caring is an attitude of concern and responsibility for persons and relationships. This is an important component of the University’s core values and is an aspect of its approach to people and relationships both within the University and outside it. This requires us to keep the well-being of others in mind in our interactions and not to pursue ends that are purely driven by private motivations. We believe that well-being and flourishing are more probable in an atmosphere that places a high value on caring and harmony. Harmony in our perception is not an absence of conflict, but an ethos born of a commitment to engage in dialogue in the face of dissent, and even discord. Opportunity for dissent is the guarantee of political voice. But it is only when all persons and groups commit to open dialogue that political and social engagements can result in harmonious outcomes. It is to this spirit of dialogue that we invite the present and future members of the University’s community. The standards and expectations of this community are high, as much in the quality of interpersonal relationships as in academic performance.
Academic discourse relies on the free expression of all ideas and opinions. Inherent in free expression is mutual respect. Respect for others includes acknowledging material, including ideas, images and language, taken from electronic, text, and visual sources. Teachers respect student work when it reflects independent reflection and analysis. Students show respect for the work of others in part by properly identifying the source of ideas, language, and images taken from other sources. Of course, respect for oneself and for the work of others forbids any copying of another student's work and submitting it as one's own. The University encourages students, faculty and staff members to uphold values of integrity and honesty. The University believes that both giving and receiving bribes/gifts in exchange for favours constitute corrupt practice.
Justice and equity are fundamental guiding principles of the University. Any form of discrimination based on religion, caste, gender, sex, community, beliefs, disability or any other factor unrelated to academic requirements is contrary to the principles of the University
The University seeks to nurture an environment based on respect for individual dignity and space. Sexual harassment refers to unwelcome sexual conduct, unwelcome acts of physical intimacy, unwelcome oral/textual requests for sexual favours, graphic representations of a sexual nature, and other visual, verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. The University pro-actively builds awareness on this issue and offers counselling services with regard to sexual attitudes and behaviour. The University also has a sensitive and strong redressal process for sexual harassment involving abuse of authority and for the sexual harassment of students by other students.
Bullying, Intimidation and Ragging
We wish to create and nurture an environment in which every individual is ensured of her right to live with dignity and respect and is free from vulnerability to any kind of bullying, intimidation or ‘ragging.’ The University proactively works towards prevention of such practices and provides a sensitive and strong system of redressal in the event such incidents occur.
Student Accommodation is not merely a living space, but a community that provides a wonderful opportunity to engage, interact and learn with and from fellow residents. In summary, the University is committed to provide a place of work and study free of fear where every individual is treated with respect.
