REVOLUTIONIZING HIGHER EDUCATION IN INDIA

The Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan is the central government’s contribution to further the promise held by the rich expanse of India’s state universities. The country’s future lies in empowering these campuses with all that it takes to enhance learning, better research and promote innovation.

Fundamental Core Values.


What led to the birth of RUSA, its promise, reason and potential and how this scheme is ever more important in steering state institutions in an ever-altering higher education landscape. Founded on the values of raising excellence and promoting equity, this scheme places prominence on making campuses world leaders in interdisciplinary collaboration, fostering innovation and engaging community participation.

Working with us.


Clearing the funding pipeline, boosting autonomy, tackling real world problems and researching for solutions, RUSA’s guidelines outline its functioning and explains its decision making processes. Funding is outcome driven, thus encouraging institutions to push their boundaries of various campus endevours be it building modern infrastructure or better learning and living experiences.

Getting here, Going forward.


How we got here and where we aim to get to, results of RUSA are already reflected on several state university campuses which have become exciting places to encounter new experiences. Our commitment to state universities is inextricably tied to the belief that campuses, anchored in societies, must be physically, socially and economically accessible to everyone and stirring to all those seeking an education.

RUSA aims to usher transformative reforms in the State Higher Education System by creating a facilitating institutional structure for planning and monitoring at the state level, promoting autonomy in State Universities and improving governance in institutions. State videos highlighting their reforms in higher education due to RUSA can be found in this section.

Based on a needs assessment of leadership gap in Higher Education, a broad content framework has been developed to address the gaps across multiple levels of leadership by building capacities of existing higher education administrators and by drawing fresh talent in the management of higher education systems. The training programme is being offered by a Higher Education Leadership Academy with the goal of developing good leaders and administrators to effectively manage institutions of higher learning.
