“During my stay at AURO, I taught classes to liberal arts students, discussed with staff topics relating to precarity and poverty, and attended several university-based events. I found the students to be lively and motivated, especially in the way they organised outdoor concerts, plays and other activities. A feature of the visit was the ‘Beyond the Postcolonial’ three-day workshop, reflecting a shared interest with the Vice Chancellor, Professor Avadhesh Kumar Singh, traceable to my first visit to Gujarat a decade ago. This event brought together Auro staff, students and visiting scholars for lectures, talks and discussions. The synergies created by these Auro contacts through classes and conventions, and the prospect of future exchanges, made this a stimulating and richly rewarding visit.”
“My visit to Auro in July was a very positive one. The new University has an exciting ambitious plan for the future, a new campus in historic Surat, with luxurious visitor hospitality and great transport links to Mumbai and Delhi. I was honoured to be invited to give the first in a Distinguished Visiting Lecture series on Reading Literature Today, a vital subject close to my research and teaching concerns and those of any university. Auro provided a special context for thinking about these important questions and the assembled audience of colleagues and students, including Vice-Chancellor Professor A.K. Singh, gave me inspiration and fascinating questions to take my thinking further.”
“My daughter joined the innovative, and rewarding Liberal Arts and Sciences programme in 2018. The curriculum is flexible yet demands that the students put the Liberal Arts into practice. The teachers are understanding and encouraging. My daughter is more confident now and I couldn’t be happier seeing the transformation that took place. Thank you, AURO.”
“With inspiration of Vice Chancellor Dr A K Singh and care and concern of all faculties the students of Liberal Arts have certainly got a novel platform to cultivate their career with multi-dimensional approach. I am sure that the students will definitely acquire wonderful career with virtues like optimism, self-confidence, determination, dedication etc in student friendly environment of Auro University.”
I can positively say that Auro University has brought changes in me that I never thought of. It has helped me develop a positive attitude towards studies and discover myself. The professors here are very-friendly and genuinely interested in the well-being of all the students. The SLAHS has brought me closer to my Indian culture and motivated me to learn more. The library and classrooms are very functional, so researching has never been easier. The infrastructure has a perfect blend of nature and student friendly amenities. It has also given opportunities, for me to display my talents and showcase interests at various platforms.
“It has been a wonderful journey at AURO University especially with the School of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences where holistic growth is ensured. Faculty members are very learned, and conducive learning conditions are provided to nurture the talents of the students.”
