Technological progress of the country without social up-liftment results in skewed growth and increased economic disparities amongst people. The Vedas, Puranas, Gita, Epic Ramayana, etc. are the treatise narrating Indian ethos, values and culture. Gradually however, economic factors have overtaken social values and ethics. The educational programmes at the Gramodaya Vishwavidyalaya are therefore, designed to integrate measures for economic growth and up- liftment of the social life of the people by creating awareness about gender equity and social justice. For enrichment of human sensibilities, the University has introduced courses in arts and




crafts at under graduate and postgraduate levels. Fine arts and videography studios have been created to enable the students to develop skill in these areas. The students are also exposed to modern print and electronic media through courses in journalism for development communication.
