About Magadh University
Shri Phagu Chauhan
H.E. Chancellor-Cum-Governor of Bihar
It is a matter of great pride and privilege to be incumbent as the Vice-Chancellor of Magadh University, Bodh-Gaya, particularly at a time when higher education is passing through testing times. Responsibilities being stupendous, I pledge to contribute positively to the multidimensional progress of the University. The University has to its credit a glorious past in the sense that the foundation stone of this University was laid by the President of India, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, an eminent educationist and philosopher and Dr. K. K. Dutta, a renowned historian was its founder Vice-Chancellor. It would be in the fitness of things that the glorious traditions of the by-gone days is strictly followed and maintained.
At the very outset I want to make it clear that the academic and administrative works of the University shall be carried strictly through relevant acts of the statutory provisions and norms shall be followed in true sense of the term. In the same vein, we must spread the idea that in the changing scenario, knowledge is the most potent source of power, which flourishes through its creation, accumulation and dissemination in diverse areas through different means and approaches. Surely, we are inclined to bring name, fame and glory for all concerned through our endeavors.
As enshrined in Shrimad Bhagavat Geeta, “न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते, i.e. certainly, there is nothing sacred like knowledge. I wish all the best for the teachers, staff, students and all the sensitive and informed minds at the campus and other stakeholders, who intend to make this university a world class institution by their incessant endeavors.
