Request for Memorabilia
The Archives on Contemporary History located on the 6th floor of the Library Building is initiating a collection of materials related to the student movement in JNU from the time of the inception of the University. We therefore request you to donate such materials as pamphlets, memoirs, photographs, posters and other memorabilia for addition to our Archives.
The ACH is committed to archiving and preserving the history of the entire spectrum of the Indian Left and Non- Left, in the case of JNU student movements and has no party affiliation. All materials will be placed in our archives for consultation by bonafide researchers and students.
Reaching out to University Alumni: JNU is proud to have as its
alumni a collective of more than 80,000 social scientists, scientists
civil servants, literary critics, media experts, foreign language
experts, journalists, political leaders, social activists,
technologists, managers and entrepreneurs over the last 35 years and
more. This number will continue to grow. The University has
established a Standing committee for Alumni Relations and
International Linkages (SCRAIL) under the chairmanship of the
Vice-Chancellor since 2003. Currently, Prof. GJV Prasad is the Chief
Advisor, Alumni & Placements.
SCARIL aims to foster stronger relations between its alumni and others
connected with the University. JNU recognizes its alumni as important
stakeholders in its continuing quest to provide excellent education.
It realises the enormous benefits that can come from the engagement
and support of its alumni who have considerable expertise in many
areas and can help identify strategic directions for JNU in the 21st
The alumni can provide opportunities for community service, act as
goodwill ambassadors for JNU, serve as effective interlocutors,
provide advice and support to the university, suggest frontline
research areas, offer career advice and also provide financial
assistance. There can also be academic and technical collaboration in
research and projects.
Through this office we have established links with JNU alumni and
several JNU alumni associations in different parts of India and
abroad. We have already produced a directory of nearly 5000 alumni
which is available online. But we have to expedite the process to
cover the remaining alumnus as soon as possible. Any alumna can get
included in this directory by sending us details at
The A&P office of the JNU is also committed to help establish links
between various prospective employers and JNU students through their
respective schools and centres. Various placement agencies and
universities have already contacted us for this purpose.
