2. A Brief History of the University

The V.V.John Committee was appointed by Government of Gujarat in April; 1973 to review the status of higher education and establish new universities.Following the recommendations of the committee, the North Gujarat University has been established by North Gujarat University Ordinance (Gujarat Ordinance No.5 of 1986, dated 17-05-1986).The Ordinance was later converted into an Act, passed by Gujarat Legislative Assembly on 29-08-1986 as North Gujarat University Act (No.22 of 1986, dated 10-09-1986).This University has now been renamed as Hemchandracharya North Gujarat University (by Gujarat Act No.2 of 2003 dated 01-03-2003), to honour the great philosopher, thinker and Jain acharya Hemchandracharya Suri, who made valuable contribution to the studies in grammar, literature, religion and philosophy.

The jurisdiction of the University covers five districts Viz., Patan, Mehsana, Banaskantha, Sabarkantha and Aravalli and caters to cultural and educational needs of this region

There are 17 post graduate departments, two constituent colleges, and 07 centers on campus.Number of affiliated colleges has increased to more than 300 from 42 during these years.The University was accredited with B Grade, CGPA of 2.55 by "NAAC" in 2008.

Emblem of the University

The emblem of the University contains a picture of Saraswati framed in a Gavaksha or Niche.Devi Saraswati, traditionally representing learning, is depicted after a painting in the old Prakrit manuscript of Dash-Vaikalik.The design of Gavaksha, simple and elegant, is adopted from the excavation of “Rani Ki Vav" in Patan.

The emblem thus recalls the ancient art and culture of Gujarat at the peak of its glory centuries ago, when Patan was a great center of learning.

The motto invokes divine blessings of sacred knowledge.It also relates to the Saraswati, the holy Vedic Kumarika River on the bank of which the University is located and which symbolizes an endless flow of ever growing knowledge.
