Educating the Roots of the Nation

Improving the status of education comes under the most requisite factor in India where statistics clearly point towards the staggering disparities in the educational levels in the country. Where one state has achieved a literacy rate higher than 90 percent while on the other hand, there also exist states like Arunachal Pradesh where the literacy rates are still dismal.

APU also boosts to merge Gurukul tradition in the teaching-learning culture along with Bloom Taxonomy as the goal of the management is to confer balanced significance to the modern and traditional way of learning.

Recognizing this issue, Prof. Dhanwant Singh came as a savior and initiated to set up Apex Professional University (APU) in Arunachal Pradesh, a non-profit university, in collaboration with the Government of Arunachal Pradesh, in 2013. Apex Foundation has its registered office at Bangalore, in southern India and Headquarters at Noida, NCR Region, New Delhi. "With a comprehensive development approach, the foundation's mission is to work in remote regions of several states in India," says Prof. Dhanwaant Singh, Founder Chancellor, Apex Professional University.

"We conducted research on which state is in need of higher education and subsequently it has been found that Arunachal Pradesh is a land which is yet to be explored. After this, the pledge has been taken accordingly to upgrade the literacy bar in the state through quality education," shares, Prof. Singh. The University is duly approved by Bar Council of India, New Delhi, Council of Architecture (CoA), New Delhi and is a member of Association of Indian Universities (AIU), New Delhi. The APU has also obtained no objection letter from the AICTE, New Delhi for conducting technical and management programme.
