The vision of the university was a collaborative exercise between students and the professionals in 2015. It is a collective dream that incorporates Earth, Sun and Water to build not just a physical campus but a model of inspired learning pushing the thresholds of mind and awakening it.
On-campus real businesses for business management students, farms and afforestation projects for agriculture and forestry students and on-campus school teaching for Masters in Education students is what the university offers. Similarly, students of hospitality and tourism management will develop new tourism products and run hotels and travel companies.
Alternative University will empower its students from direct engagement in field experiences than from classroom lectures by encouraging them to create cases rather than reading them off the books. This approach equips its students with the necessary arsenal for life – innovation, self-confidence, self-reliance and personal & community skills.
By encouraging innovative solutions to the problems of Ladakh and the mountains in general, the University aims to reform the model of higher education making it pragmatic and engaging with direct application to life’s challenges.
