AURO University is grounded in value based education and imparts integral learning and leadership, where the mind, body and spirit are aligned and prepared to embark on a journey of lifelong enrichment for both, the individual and the community.

The Auro University, established in 2011, is the first university in the world to be established expressly for the purpose of living and practicing integral education and culture in academia, a kind of a modern day gurukula for integral learning that will create applied spirituality, a place where one can come and get a feel and touch of the spiritual in practical living.

The University offers graduate and post-graduate courses in hospitality, business studies, law, design and IT and already hosts 930 students from all over India in a residential co-ed environment. The University is already well known for quality education and academic culture in the state of Gujarat and plans to offer more courses in several other disciplines, in the years to come.

Dr. Avadhesh Singh is now the Vice Chancellor of the University.

Message from the Founder

AURO University is inspired by the vision and teachings of Sri Aurobindo Ghosh and The Divine Mother. Sri Aurobindo said: "Man is a Transitional Being and is not at the zenith of his Evolution." AURO University recognizes that each individual is a soul in evolution and needs to develop the entire personality around that innermost soul. We strive to help students grow to become active participants and conscious collaborators in the on-going process of human evolution.

AURO University will encourage, enable and empower students to discover themselves and reach their highest potential by imbibing our core values through self discipline, self control and self transformation.

Message from the VC

AURO University is a space for meaningful knowledge transactions which include: acquisition of knowledge, preservation of knowledge, creation of knowledge, dissemination and application of knowledge. It is a University with difference because apart from performing its diverse roles in the domains of knowledge transactions, it focuses on integral and transformational learning, inspired by the philosophy of Sri Aurobindo’s vision of integral education. The University believes in holistic development of learners’ physical, mental, vital and spiritual aspects in terms of their physical, emotional, aesthetic, intellectual, relational, moral and spiritual well-being, and thereby transform them into future leaders.

'AURO' means 'dawn'. AURO University is a new ‘dawn’ of integral education. In the course of time, with sincere efforts of its students and faculty, it is expected to become mainstream education system because human history informs us that mere knowledge is not ultimate destination of humankind. It goes beyond knowledge to wisdom and integral vision of life.
