About Us

The dawn of 22nd July 1970, in the twenty-first year of the Republic of India, witnessed the birth of the Himachal Pradesh University in fulfilment of the aspirations of the people of Himachal to establish a premier and inclusive institution of higher learning. Since its inception, the University has striven untiringly to realize the vision of its founders, to disseminate and advance knowledge, wisdom and understanding by teaching and research and by the example and influence of its corporate life.
