With an experience of over 42 years and Jawaharlal Nehru’s objectives embedded in the foundation of the University, what has lent strength and energy to Jawaharlal Nehru University is the vision that “ideas are a field for adventure, experimentation and unceasing quest and diversity of opinions its chief premise”. In the early 1970s, when JNU opened its doors to teachers and students, frontier disciplines, new perspectives and old disciplines were brought to the Indian university system. The excellent teacher-student ratio of 1:10, was a mode of instruction which encouraged students to explore their own creativity instead of reproducing received knowledge, and an exclusively internal evaluation were a new experiment on the Indian academic landscape.
