about-us

The Human Resource Development Centre (previously known as Academic Staff College), Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar was established in 1987 following introduction of the scheme by the University Grants Commission in 1987. Since its inception, it has been attracting teachers from all over India, rather than from a specific region and has become a platform where the Guru Nanak Dev University's academic community shares its knowledge, insights and ideas with the larger academic community of the country on a reciprocal basis.

The U.G.C Human Resource Development Centre (previously known as Academic Staff College), G.N.D.U. Amristar has, since its inception achieved high standards of excellence in its working, based on team work of a small but committed, dedicated and competent group of teaching and non-teaching staff. The efforts made by the staff college are academically and socially relevant. In this globalize era teachers are given to higher learning and their being a equipped with excellent academic standards and pedagogical tools. We are trying to keep pace with the constant flow of information and knowledge.Efforts are also being made to update the knowledge base and outlook of the teachers at regular intervals.

We are continuously trying to seek to stimulate the academic environment for promotion of teaching and research in higher education institutions by keeping teachers abreast with the latest developments in key areas of information and knowledge.In brief we are trying to meet the needs of the time and keep pace with the growth in the fields of information and knowledge. The ASC's main philosophy is to keep in mind that the teacher is central to the system. While it is universally accepted that the teacher is the pivot of the educational system, our system does not provide adequate opportunities for their professional development. It is therefore necessary to develop inbuilt mechanisms to provide opportunities for teachers within the framework of knowledge society. It is also accepted that the teacher must not be confined only to transmitting information, he/she must also orient students to meet the challenges of life, to not merely become a trained professional but also a better citizen.
