Irrespective of the many shared interests
and concerns that create an enduring nexus
between all institutions of higher learning,
the University of Agriculture, above all, by
its very nature must accord a primacy in
function to service to community. Indeed,
this is the only raison d’etre of its existence
that calls for fulfillment through an
integrated pursuit of the trinity of missions
of research (for acquisition of knowledge),
of teaching (for transmission of knowledge)
of application of knowledge (for Public
Service). Thus crucial to the university’s
sustained viability as a centre of excellence
and an agent of change and development
across the board is its ability to prepare a
high-level manpower to drive the engines of
improvement, and progress as a continuous
process of socio-economic advancement
maintained via an efficient interplay of the
forces of a possible breakthrough generated
in the university’s classrooms, laboratories
and experimental fields.
The university will give the highest priority
to resource allocation to its educational
programs at all levels as well as for the
future development of those areas that
represent the traditional strengths, quality,
reputation, unique to this institution which
continues to effectively respond to the
needs of students and other stakeholders.
The university is primed to ensure on a
continuing basis the strength of its faculty
expressed in the quality of instructions
imparted and the commitment of the
faculty to pursue excellence in education
and keep mediocrity at bay.
The primary focus of research will be
redressing problems and accretion of
knowledge and technology development
important to the State and Nation as also
the quality of life of our people at large.
Extension and outreach programs are
important parts of the mission of the
university because these programs directly
affect the lives of farmer community. The
university will respond to the changing
needs of the society.
