Global Recognition for a Noble Vision

THE Impact Rankings - the only global indicators to assess universities' progress towards the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), has ranked Amrita, 1st in India and 81st in the world. It's an acknowledgement of the University's commitment to remain an exemplary institution that creates Global Impact on society through Compassion-Driven Research and Education for Life. It's an education that harmonises both, scientific knowledge and spiritual learning, to create a sustainable tomorrow for all. We thank our students, faculty, staff, alumni and partners who are influencing change, both nationally and globally, as we build for the future.

“Today, universities and their researchers are ranked mainly based on the amount of funding they receive, the number of papers they publish and their intellectual caliber, but along with this, we should take into consideration how much we have been able to use research to serve the lowest and most vulnerable strata of society. In our approach to sustainable development, we should not forget that it is by strengthening the people at the base of the pyramid that the entire edifice of society grows healthy and strong.”

Chancellor Amma,

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. When Chancellor Amma spoke at the United Nations in July 2015, she stated, “I often reflect deeply on the future of the Earth, the preservation of nature, and the disappearing harmony between humanity and nature. This contemplation has led me to the conviction that science, technology, and spirituality must unite in order to ensure a sustainable and balanced existence of our world. The present age and the world around us demand this transformation.”
