Rajiv Gandhi University (formerly Arunachal University) has been endeavouring since its inception in 1984 to play a positive role in the socio-economic development of Arunachal Pradesh through research, education, training and extension. Towards realising these objectives, the University has been introducing relevant courses both at undergraduate and post graduate levels. The University has achieved a lot. For example, in 2002, UGC has identified our University as one among the select group of twelve Universities with potential for excellence in Bio-Diversity out of ninety competing Universities. The University was assessed and accredited in 2002 by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and is placed in ‘B’ grade on the basis of its performance in academic, research and governance.
