Nobel laureate Amartya Sen appointed chancellor of Nalanda University

July 26, 2012

Nobel laureate Amartya Sen was appointed as the first chancellor of the upcoming Nalanda International University in Bihar. A senior official of the state education department said, "Decision to appoint Amartya Sen as first chancellor of the university was taken a meeting of the board of governors."

The meeting also decided that the process of recruitment of acclaimed and renowned faculty for the university will begin in July 2013 and the academic session of its two schools - historical sciences and environment and ecology - will start from April 2014.

The university in Bihar's Nalanda district will be fully residential, like the ancient Nalanda university. It will offer courses in science, philosophy and spiritualism along with social sciences.

Nalanda International University (also known as University of Nalanda or Nalanda University) is the name of a proposed university in Nalanda, which is expected to be functional from 2013 with seven schools or more and will expand in later years. The university is based on the ideal of the ancient center of higher learning which was present from the 5th century CE to 1197 CE.

The then President of India APJ Abdul Kalam, on 28th March, 2006, proposed the idea while addressing the Joint Session of the Bihar Vidhan Mandal for revival of Nalanda university. Japan and Singapore are financing the construction work, with contributions figuring around $ 100 million. It has been estimated that $500m will be required to build the new facility, with a further $500m needed to sufficiently improve the surrounding infrastructure.

The Bihar government had handed over 443 acres of sprawling land acquired from local people, to the University, where construction work has begun. It is a dream project of the former Indian president APJ Abdul Kalam.
