Dean Alumni's Message

Guru Nanak Dev University has become an institution of iconic marvel in academics, sports-sciences having been conferred the status of “University with Potential for Excellence” by UGC and accredited at "A++" grade (highest level as per modified criteria) by NAAC.

Recognized by UGC as “University with Potential for Excellence”, the institution endeavours to provide quality education and assistance for its students so that they may move towards the fulfilment of their aspirations. Over the period, the University has produced graduates, post graduates and researchers in diverse disciplines, who went on to make their mark in their respective fields and are now a part of our Alumni Association Guru Nanak Dev University (AAGNDU). Spread across the world, the University alumni remain linked with their alma mater as well as their friends/contemporaries through the Association. The University cherishes its alumni, as not only they are role models for the coming generations but also ambassadors for promoting the University’s mission. The University is committed to establish, foster and nurture a strong bond between the alumni and the institution for achieving excellence and reaching newer heights. As AAGNDU, we are committed to develop a strong relationship between the alumni and the University and to develop different platforms for achieving excellence at Guru Nanak Dev University. In each department in the campus, a separate chapter of the alumni association has been created with a Teacher-Alumni-Incharge and Head of the Department has been made the key person for building association with the alumni. Some of the departments have organised the alumni meet at the department level and AAGNDU has also organized the Alumni Meets at the University Level in some previous years.
