Research Advisory Committee
The mission of the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) is to increase the quantity and quality of research at the University by enhancing the research enterprise on campus. RAC suggests thrust areas and disciplines for introducing research programmes and related activities for future development in research.

RAC encourages faculty members/researchers of University to conduct meaningful, ethical, cutting-edge research in an intellectually free environment.

It suggests measures for improving existing infrastructural facilities both for academic and sponsored research and enhancing research ambiance. RAC advises the administration on matters of policies pertaining to research, both internal and external, and provides input concerning policies and procedures that govern administration of externally funded research. RAC also serves as a forum to discuss research-related issues at the University. RAC is a direct two-way communication channel that faculty and administration can use to convey issues and receive information about research-related concerns. Facilitating communication, engaging external and internal members of the research community, and addressing policies that effect research on campus are key issues for this committee.
