During the Eleventh Five- Year Plan, there was a proposal put forward for the created of several more central universities, to tackle the shortage of quality higher education. It would also lessen the financial burden which was being created thanks to the burgeoning of private education. The proposal was then accepted and the decision was taken for the creation of twelve more such central universities, all in different states. These new central universities would come up in the states of – Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Odisha, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and Rajasthan. In addition, three more existing universities in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Uttarakhand were to be upgraded to central university status. Admissions to all these universities is via the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET). Special provisions here are also made for the admission of foreign students.
Jammu and Kashmir was the only state where two such central universities were built. This is because of the differing requirements between the two regions. So, the Central University of Kashmir was opened in 2009 in Srinagar, while the Central University of Jammu was established two years later in 2011 in Jammu. At present, the classes for the Central University of Jammu are taking place at a makeshift premise but with plans to relocate to the permanent campus shortly. There are thirteen school of study in total at this university. Out of these only eight are operational right now. Each school has multiple departments within it. The largest school at present is the School of Basic and Applied Sciences. It has five departments within, which are for- Mathematics, Nano Science & Material, Chemistry & Chemical Sciences, Physics & Astronomical Sciences and for Computer Science & Information Technology.
The School of Humanities and Social Sciences is another major one here. It has separate departments for – Economics, Social Work, Public Policy & Public Administration and Comparative Religion & Civilization. Another important one is the School of Life Sciences. Within it, are departments for – Environmental Sciences, Zoology, Botany and Molecular Biology. The School of Business Studies meanwhile has three departments within it. They are for – Tourism & Travel Management, Marketing & Supply Chain Management and for Human Resource Management & Organizational Behaviour. The Department of National Security Studies is the only one within the school by the same name. The other operational school here are for – Language, Education and for Knowledge Management- Information & Media Studies. Besides these operational schools, there are five more schools which have received the approval, but are yet to commence their classes. These schools are for – Law, Visual & Performing Arts, Medical & Allied Sciences, Engineering Sciences & Technology and for Vocational Studies. Besides these yet- to- be- opened schools, there are also some departments within the schools which will only be inaugurated later on. There has so far, been a gradual expansion in the courses being offered.
The Central University of Jammu is also involved in several research and consultancy assignments with government bodies, industries as well as fellow educational institutions. A lot of projects have been done in collaboration with the Department of Travel and Tourism. Other collaborators include- Indian Institute of Tourism & Travel Management (Gwalior), Department of National Security Studies, Aashray Techno- Social Business Incubator (Ahmedabad), Central University of Himachal Pradesh, Community- Based Rehabilitation Network (Bengaluru), NASSCOM Foundation (Delhi), VLCC, MHRD, UGC, Taj Global Understanding (TGU), Commonwealth of Virginia, Press Club of Jammu, ASCI, University of Melbourne (Australia), Ladakh International Centre, Hangyang University (Seoul, South Korea), ICHR, Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University, CSIR and several others.
Beyond academics, there is a thriving campus culture here. There is a yoga centre and a gymnasium for the students. There is also a sports club. Uniquely, at the Central University of Jammu, there are cultural and sports committees for faculty members as well. The students here also proactively participate in several government initiatives, such as for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. As entrepreneurship is now being given such importance so a separate cell has been created here known as the University Business Incubation Centre. Here, all budding entrepreneurs are provided with assistance to help incubate their ideas. The related University Innovation Cell has been curated for the purpose of building on ideas. Some of these ideas get further accepted into the incubation centre. This cell looks into both scientific as well as business innovations, or in any other field that emerges.
