PASIGHAT, May 14: Apex Professional University (APU), Pasighat observed its sixth Foundation Day on Tuesday at the university campus here in a simple yet a glittering function arranged by students and faculties by recalling the efforts and hurdles faced by university in its journey so far.
Established under the public-private-partnership (PPP) module, the State private university, APU, based at Gumin Nagar, 2 Mile, Pasighat started functioning in July 2013 after the Government of Arunachal Pradesh has legislated the Apex Professional University Act, 2012 (No. 7 of 2013) as a Statutory University to give quality education in the doorstep of State’s student community.
APU today offers various courses under four key departments like, School of Law and Juridical Sciences, School of Education & Social Sciences, School of Health and Allied Sciences and Institute of Research and Innovation.
“The university has a total of 283 enrolled students with 47 teaching and non-teaching staff who are working hard to give a parallel and high quality education to the students of this border state at par with the best universities of the country,” said Acharya Dhanwant Singh in a message.
Many students have expressed their gratitude to the university for offering courses like integrated BA LLB, Bachelor of Law (LLB), Master of Law (LLM) and other courses in the doorstep of students which were not offered in state’s lone central university. “If these courses were not offered by APU here, we would have required to go to outside the state to obtain the same degrees by incurring huge financial involvement which is not possible for a poor student like us,” said Lungkang Ering, one of the Law students and convener of APU Students Council.
