About the Adichunchanagiri University (ACU)

Nestled amidst the verdant landscapes of Karnataka, India, Adichunchanagiri University (ACU) stands as a luminous beacon of knowledge. Established in 2017, ACU transcends the boundaries of a mere academic institution; it embodies a spirit of transformation and continuous progress.

This multidisciplinary private university owes its genesis to the profound vision of the revered Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Dr. Balagangadharanatha Mahaswamiji, the 71st Pontiff of Sri Adichunchanagiri Mahasamsthana Math. Inspired by a noble dream, he envisioned a dynamic learning hub that fosters not only intellectual growth but also equips students with valuable skills.  Equally important, ACU strives to preserve India’s rich cultural and spiritual heritage, ensuring a holistic educational experience.

This visionary dream found its beginnings in 1973 with the establishment of schools and colleges, particularly in rural areas. This pioneering effort ensured that education became accessible to all, regardless of their social or economic background. This commitment to educational equity continues to be a cornerstone of ACU’s philosophy, with the current leader, the Honourable Chancellor Jagadguru Sri Sri Sri Dr. Nirmalanandanatha Mahaswamiji, the 72nd Pontiff, playing a pivotal role in uplifting underserved communities. ACU aspires to be a torchbearer for accessible, high-quality education, empowering every student with the potential to excel and reach their full potential.

The sprawling 67-acre campus at BG Nagara exemplifies ACU’s dedication to fostering holistic learning and personal development. Situated just outside the bustling city of Bangalore on National Highway No. 75, the campus beautifully blends state-of-the-art infrastructure with a landscape teeming with lush greenery. This unique environment fosters a vibrant academic community where students can not only excel in their chosen fields but also forge lasting connections with peers and faculty.
